Get Set to Shop in the Paris Summer Sales

17th July 2012 • Posted in Announcements

If there’s such a thing as the best time to visit on cheap flights to Paris, it has to be during its summer and winter sales – although your bank manager may disagree! The 2012 summer sales are scheduled by the state from June 27th to July 31st, meaning you have plenty of time to shop, but you might find yourself wondering where to begin.

Everything from furniture to frocks can be slashed in price during the Paris summer sales, but naturally bargain-hunters gravitate towards the designer goods. This is no surprise as the cost of high-end labels can be reduced by up to 80%, which is definitely a reason to pack the credit card.

Prepare to Peruse

However if you’re planning to hop on a cheap flight to Paris to load up on cut-price goods, it helps to do a little preparation. 

Parisians will visit their favourite stores a day or two before the sales begin to check out what’s on offer and to try on clothes to determine their size, so they can grab what they want and go. When the sales start, be an early bird to avoid the crowds, and don’t forget to dress comfortably, meaning leave the heels in your hotel!

Above all, try to be sensible when shopping, as it’s all too easy to impulse buy when the price tags show huge reductions. At least flights have a generous 22kg baggage allowance for bringing those purchases home!
