Air France is offering direct roundtrip flights to Paris from Dulles Airport for $584 including all taxes and fees.
The cheapest flights are on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and flights are in November.
As an alternative, you can fly with KLM Airlines, which offers flights at $608. Their flights have a single layover and can last about twice as long.
Delta also offers direct flights to Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris for $585.
If I had to choose between Delta and Air France, I’d choose Air France every time.
United Airlines has just announced 2 for 1 flights to all major Canadian cities from Dulles airport. Cities includes in this deal are Montreal, Quebec, Toronto, Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver, Halifax, Winnipeg, Ottawa, and Victoria.
This could be one of the best times to fly to any of these cities, as these are some of the cheapest flights I’ve seen in a while. Especially to Vancouver and Quebec. Two of my favorite Canadian cities.

Rising fast, Continental Airlines is offering one-stop flights to Honolulu, Hawaii from BWI for $394 roundtrip.
Flight price really depends on which day you can fly. I found this flight for leaving on Wednesday, May 27th, and flying back on either June 2nd (Tuesday) or June 4th (Thursday).
Flight time is between 11 and 14 hours each way.
No surprise here, daily nonstop flights between Boston and Washington DC on AirTran for $99.
I’m not the biggest fan of AirTran, but for 50 bucks each way, I’ll tuck myself into a window seat and stare at the back of the seat in front of my for 45 minutes.
Virgin also flies between DC and Boston, so you could check for flights from them as well.
Weather in Boston gets particularly nice around late May until early July, before it gets too humid, and this can be the perfect time to catch a ferry or ride to anywhere along Cape Cod, Newport Rhode Island, or southern New Hampshire.
Virgin America announced these fare sales about a month ago. You can now fly from Dulles Airport, Washington DC to San Francisco for $219 roundtrip. Flight is about 5 hours, and you get to fly in the nightclub known as Virgin America Airlines.
This is the standard price for this flight. So, you may need to book a few weeks in advance, but cost should stay at under $220 regardless of the day you fly.
Frankfurt is a hugely trafficked airport in the center of Germany (and all of Europe) , so its no surprise that there are often quite a few cheap flights to here from Washington DC.
Frankfurt is also a great jump off point to other European cities, as it has a very active train station with many trains going to all major and minor European cities.
Flights are non-stop on United. I also found some cheap flights with American Airlines and Lufthansa, but $520 is for the United flight.
Flight time is 7-8 hours for non-stop flights.
Air France has recently announced airfare sales to Paris from Washington DC. I have found cheap flights on a number of dates and times.
Initially, try doing a fare search for flying May 20 to May 27th (yup, its coming up)
Things to See in Paris:
In addition to being a gateway into the rest of France and Western Europe, try visiting any of the following in Paris: The Louvre, Notre Dame Cathedral, the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, Basilique de St Denis, Ballon Eutelsat, Champ-Elysee Avenue, Cabinet des Médailles et Monnaies, and the Catacombes de Paris - just to name a few of the hundreds of attractions that many tourists flock to in Paris every summer.
The Hulk Ride at Universal Studios, Orlando
AirTran is offering roundtrip flights for $147 in mid-May to Orlando from Washington DC.
Need to book soon. Fly on Wednesdays, for the cheapest airfare.
Looks like Airfare is offering similarly priced flights later in May as well. I’ve also found some comparably cheap flights on Tuesdays and Fridays.
Try doing searches on a travel search engine like Sidestep.
Things to do in Orlando:
Orlando has the most rollercoasters per capita in the United States. That’s quite a few rollercoasters. My suggestion would be to head to the Universal Studios first, home to the Hulk Rollercoaster ride (pictures), then make a few days for Disney World and Paradise Island.
Just announced as part of the most recent fare sale by South African Airlines. Fly to Cape Town, South Africa for $629 roundtrip from Washington DC.
Must book before May 21. Must fly after April 30th.
Expect some airfare and government imposed taxes, which could be around a hundred bucks more.
Things to Do in Cape Town:
A natural stop for most people that visit South Africa, Cape Town is situated at the southermost point in Africa, right next to the Cape of Good Hope. Many people come here for the surfing, but there is also plenty of small hikes, such as Table Mountain, plus South African vineyards, and nearby safari tours.
