When to fly to France
There really is no bad time to take cheap flights to France, but the best time to go really depends on what you want to do when you get there.
Mid-May to September (particularly July and August), the end of October, Christmas, February, and Easter are the high season times in France. These basically cover the school holidays when the French holiday and tourists from around Europe descend on the country too.
November–February is the low season in the cities and at the beaches, however this is high season for skiers and snowboarders.
The flight from Canada to France averages a travel time of around 6h 50m for direct flights, with one-stop flights to Paris available with 12h 55m flight time. Indirect flights may require additional flight time, although they are more readily available. The exact departure and arrival city could change travel time by a few hours, as well.
Direct flights from Canada to various cities in France are available from multiple airlines and with multiple cities of origin in Canada. Travellers can book direct flights from Montreal and Toronto, with Vancouver, Edmonton, and Calgary offering plenty of one-stop options with France travel deals for most flights. Direct flights from Canada arrive in Paris. One-stop flights can arrive in Lyon, Marseille, Bordeaux, Nice, and almost every other major city in the country.
Although there are 146km of road in France, it is best for travellers to use the rail lines to get around the country. The TGV (fast rail) is more expensive, but the slow train and Eurorail are also available and the latter can be cheaper for those who have a Eurorail pass. Some tourists do choose to rent a car to enjoy the scenic drives around the many cities and villages of France, but navigating the web of streets in the country can be difficult for those not familiar with the roads or driving laws of the country. Those who want to tour like a local will rent a moped or bike and hit the streets of Paris and other cities on two wheels.
France is known for attractions like the Eiffel Tower and other wonders of Paris, which are both well worth exploring. However, there is also much more to see and do. Travellers can visit other popular attractions like the Louvre Museum, Arc de Triomphe, and the Palace of Versailles, or take a cruise down the River Seine. Provence is home to many artists’ villages, offering a unique walking experience for visitors. In Paris and other cities, there are also many parks and outdoor activities available. There are beautiful beaches along the coast, and Disneyland Paris is great for kids of all ages. Those who enjoy shopping can head to Cannes and visit the Promenade de la Croisette, where they will find plenty of restaurants and high-end shopping from Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Prada, and others.
Canadian nationals travelling to France, or any other international visitors not from another Schengen country are required to present a passport upon entry to the country. All passports and other travel documents must include validity for at least three months beyond the visit period, and those documents that are more than 10 years old may not be accepted as legal travel documents. Visas are only required for Canadian nationals intending to stay beyond 90 days.
France has seen a 393% increase in demand for flights to the country compared to last year.
