A Parisian Holiday: Arrive in Style
As Audrey Hepburn says in the movie ‘Sabrina’, “Paris is always a good idea”. So Paris it is, for the annual family vacation. The ‘City of Lights’ as it is known is considered to be the most romantic city in the world, and one of the most popular tourist destinations. For all those who are planning to travel to Paris for the first time or looking forward to their next trip, read on to know how to turn this travel time to quality time spent with family.
Save on travel time
The first factor to consider is the time you have on hand. After all, there is no fun in a vacation if you end up spending 4 days traveling to and fro, when you have managed to take just a week off from work. Imagine booking tickets on a commercial airline, where you spend anything between 10 to 30 hours, depending on whether the connection is non-stop or has stop overs. If you are traveling from a city like Dubai, you can board a direct flight that lands in Paris in 8 hours, but what about the additional time of 4 or 5 hours that is spent in traveling to the airport and checking in.
Now imagine, how much time you could save if you could check in just 15 minutes before you board an International flight. If you have been thinking that it is not possible, then you are mistaken. The aviation industry has grown by leaps and bounds and makes this possible.
Enjoy a pet-friendly Vacation
A pet is an integral part of family. So why not take your pet on vacation too? Traveling by commercial airlines is traumatic for a pet, not to forget the endless hours spent in the cargo hold. On the other hand, traveling with pets is a breeze on . Provided you have the right documentation, your pet can board the flight along with you at a fare that is lesser than commercial flights. Paris has lots of pet-friendly hotels to check in, and most public establishments allow well behaved pets.
