Britsh Airways Long Haul Flights

8
Found 16th Jan 2008
When your trying to book long haul flights especially to destinations like South Africa from London I have found a useful way of cutting costs on your flight. A direct flight from London to Cape Town (CPT) for example is roughly £950 return during school holidays economy class. However there is a way around this by catching a eurostar to Paris and flying from CDG airport. On the expedia site if you type in CDG to CPT you will find BA fly you back to London and then direct to Cape Town. The only difference is that your flight price is reduced to £650 per person. Overall a £600 saving per couple if you don't mind travelling to Paris in the first place either by eurostar or plane.

You have not factored in any of the cost for travelling to Paris in the first place then getting from Paris to CDG airport as well as buying extra food and drink etc etc. Sounds like you would end up paying more in the long run. A lot of hassle for very little savings if any.

Moved to misc as this isn't a deal, it's a tip

Heres a tip,

always wear clean underwear in case you get run over

Don't forget your Quidco.

This has to be one of the worst threads ever...

But seriously, it's not a bad tip, only instead of Eurostar get a budget flight to Paris, surely (if OPs info is correct) that could potentially save hundreds of pounds on a family holiday?
