London Heathrow to Seattle in August School Holidays (£401.50 Adult, £323.50 Child under 16) on Air France

Amazing fare for school holidays and you would expect to pay double this price. You can book direct with the airline which is always best.

London Heathrow to Seattle (prime August UK school holidays) on Air France. Good flight times and change in Paris (~2 hour layover in both directions).

Adult = £401.50 pp
Children under 16 = £323.70 pp (no £78 air passenger duty payable)

Base fare is £13! All the rest is taxes and fees.

Out = 6, 7, 8, 13, 14, 15 August

Return = 20, 21, 27, 28, 29 August

Book AirFrance.com. Hand baggage fare, so pay a bit extra if you want to check in a suitcase.

Family (2adults and 2kids) = £1538 with one checked bag (£1450 if you can live with the 12 kg cabin baggage allowance per person).

Throw in hire car for 2 weeks (~£400) and say ~£100/night for accommodation, and you have an American adventure in prime school holidays for £3,500 + spendies. Cheaper than the Med!

I’ve booked and been confirmed.

A new AF route, hence must be the reason for the very cheap prices.

Visit Seattle, Vancouver (140 miles), Yellowstone (700 miles) etc etc.

Depends on how old your kids are. Not everyone is travelling with toddlers, and mine are 17 & 14, and have done 4 USA road trips before, and love the great outdoors.

Our itinerary will probably be a road trip consisting of Seattle-Portland-Yellowstone NP-Glacier NP-Calgary-Banff NP-Vancouver-Olympic NP-Olympic NP-Seattle.

Two weeks bouncing around the theme parks of Orlando is not our idea of fun, but as with everything YMMV.

Just tried it with checked baggage, £472. Cracking price.
Great deal, if you're looking for other dates Thomas cook airlines also fly direct from Manchester and London (LGW?) to Seattle in summer. Similar low prices but not the service you'd get from air France.
Amazing fare at any time!

If you are travelling as a family/group, it’s best to book the hand baggage fare and add a bag during the booking process as needed (that’s what I did). You pay a little bit more for the checked bag, but you split it across more tickets.

The hand baggage allowance is 12 kg, so a family of 4 really should only need to check one large bag if they use their 48 kg hand baggage allowance.

Drive there.
Expect another £200 because you need new clothing because that jerks most likely will lose your bag.

Soo true happened to me! New York middle of winter no jacket no hat.
We booked this a few days ago. Great prices. We are a family with 2 youngish kids but are looking forward to exploring Seattle and cruising to Alaska and then spending some time relaxing in Vancouver...so lots to do for all ages!
Oh and we took off the standard bags and paid for 2 suitcases. Hoping that will
be enough for us. Now to find sensible prices for car hire (need a big car as will be travelling in Seattle with another family)..some of the flights go with delta but bags are more expensive with them

For this price i can go to yellowknife from gatwick
Good find!
Been toying with a road trip California/ywllowstone with the family - seatlle/Vancouver we have done before. There are loads of national parks and coast over there in easy reach of seattle so don't agree with the "there is nothing to do" people. This is summer not winter! With teens, better off in the national parks than sitting in some new York café watching them checking iphone texts and spotify playlists in between shopping and moaning. Yawn.
Good price, just watch the layover time in Paris as some flights might give you barely 90 mins.

We’ve been twice to Seattle with kids. Last time was last year for the total eclipse (we travelled south to Oregon to view it).
I’d say there’s enough in Seattle to occupy you for a week but accommodation isn’t cheap. Even eating out isn’t as cheap as it used to be (irrespective of the FX rate).
I’d recommend using it as a base, see the main sights there then travel and see the immense scenery or drive down towards Oregon and California or north towards Canada (check carefully for car hire terms and crossing the border).
If anyone’s interested I can recommend some places in Seattle to visit and eat at.
I can’t recommend accommodation as my brother lives there and we stayed with him in his downtown apartment.

There is good deals to Canada ..vancouver aprox 230 pounds..toronto for less just look to Skyscanner..i am interested in Yellowknife which is in north canada..
Air France are cheap because they are no good. They will lose your bags like they did to me at the start of a 6-week holiday of a lifetime to USA. Avoid like the plague.

Which dates you found for Vancouver at 230
Seattle has become a very expensive place. Amazon and a lot of tech firms are there now. High wages, high costs.

For me, the best thing about Seattle is that Portland is nearby.
I love Portland

I think you are better-off staying at home.
Slightly went up ..256 now.. Skyscanner search
Very good deal and a decent airline.

Cheers Bobbins. Excellent find. Heat added!

Booked on Air France via Quidco (2%) last night for 2 adults, 1 tweenager, 1 child, i checked in bag going out, 2 checking bags coming back for £1587.10. For a 3 week August booking (long haul) this is superb.

Using Seattle as a base. So far undecided where to go or what to do but will definitely goto Boeing factory in Everett, Vancouver and a national park or two.
Considering the drive to San Francisco and back to take in the Pacific Coast Highway but unsure if better to focus closer to Seattle. I've got 6 months to decide the itinerary!

Good stuff. Three weeks will give you the flexibility to head down into California, without paying the California flight prices to get there

Having done most of the National Parks west of Denver (with the exception of those in the Pacific Northwest which we will do this time), if you are heading down to San Francisco, do not miss the opportunity to visit Yosemite, which is my favourite NP.

Yellowstone is also great along with the surrounding area - Tetons/Jackson, Wyoming.

if you are looking for discounted accommodation I’ve used Hotwire.com with great success on all our trips.

We head out from Heathrow on the 8th August.

I have been to Seattle a few times. A few things to do:

* Go on top of space needle
* Take a ferry to one of the island
* Go to the outdoor shopping centre/village (10 min from downtown)
* Visit the Boeing factory
* Visit the flight museum
* Aquarium
* Segway tour of the town
* Visit the Starbucks Roastery shop

If you see a family of 4 with two teenagers boarding the Paris and then the Seattle flights then say hello.

Ifone of the teenagers is 3 inches taller than his Dad, then that’s us!
i have also booked now - great prices - cheers to the original poster
ricardasgudkovas22nd Jan

For this price i can go to yellowknife from gatwick



So what? For that price I could go to Palma from Bristol 7 times.
But that's not the same thing. Just like Yellowknife from Gatwick isn't the same thing.
The fare is still alive.

If you are booking a rental car, do not collect at SEA airport! Seattle has some crazy taxes on airport collection which increases the cost of the rental by 60-70%, when compared to collecting off-airport.

Therefore, start the rental at a satellite office away from the airport, or downtown Seattle, and then specifiy return to the airport.

For example I've just booked a full size car for 11 days with Hertz directly for £274, collecting the car downtown Seattle (Westlake) and returning to the SEA airport. The same car would have been £454 if I started the rental at SEA airport. It is a well known rip off if you google it.

If you have an Amex use CDP 705500 for a further 10% off Hertz rentals. If found booking diect with Hertz cheaper than going through the numerous consolidators.
