This post is sponsored by our good friends at Air France. We’ve been excited by the numerous great deals they’ve offered from the US to Europe, and decided to collaborate on why you should visit the British isles. Now!

Just like your daily commute- timing is everything in travel. Too early and things just aren’t quite ready, too late and things have flown by, never to be the same again. But occasionally, things are just perfect. There’s never been a better time to visit the United Kingdom and Ireland and we’ll explain why- aside from the fact that Air France’s incredible deals can often get you there for less than $400 round trip, with the sophistication of a luxury airline.

Reason #1 It’s Cheaper Than Ever, In Every Way

Flights to Europe have never been more affordable. Air France has launched quite a few deals under $400 round trip this year alone! Chances are, that plain old vacation in Florida during spring break would actually cost you a lot more than amazing flights to Europe. Plus- once you get there, the currency goes a lot further than it used to. Food in the UK is very reasonably priced, and where else can you say that you’ve had the real deal fish n chips, afternoon tea or a proper roast? We’re talking quintessential stuff here, like pastry in Paris.

Reason #2 You Get a 2 For 1…

Ever heard of Paris? You know- the iconic city, known for some of the world’s most beautiful architecture, romance, wine, croissants and shopping delights? Fortunately, all Air France flights to the UK transit the gorgeous French capital, giving you the opportunity to spend anywhere from 24 hours and beyond- enjoying an incredible destination and a free side trip on the way. Here’s a tip on booking free stopovers.

Reason #3 The Game Of Thrones Effect…

If you’re not one of the people who obsessed over Game Of Thrones, you can continue down to the next reason. But if you are- you simply must visit the UK right now. So many of the scenes and jaw dropping back drops for the show are set in England, Scotland and Ireland. From country castles to lush green hills, there’s nothing like seeing Winterfell for real. And that’s just the start, we have an amazing guide on what to do in the English countryside.

Reason #4 Air France Flights Earn Miles That Are Valuable In The U.S.

If you live in the U.S, you only have a few choices of who to fly, and Delta is a great option. You can earn Delta miles on all Air France flights, or you can earn Air France Flying Blue miles instead. Air France Flying Blue miles can be used on Delta domestic flights, or future flights within Europe and around the world. This is an amazing opportunity to earn points which will save you a fortune on future flights. Here’s why “Flying Blue” is one of our favorite airline loyalty programs. What’s not to like?

Reason #5 Football, Football And More Football

The English Premier League is taking over the world, and so is Air France. The airline has direct flights from Paris to smaller UK airports, allowing travelers to fly direct to their favorite team’s cities, such as Manchester, Newcastle and London. No matter who you root for, you can catch a game- which is a life changing experience by the way.

Reason #6 Air France Serves Amazing Wine And Champagne In Economy

There’s nothing like experiencing the quintessential experiences of life: tea in London, fish n’ chips in Manchester- these are things you’ll never forget. Air France, unlike any other airline on earth serves champagne in economy, allowing you to toast your amazing trip without spending an extra dime. The airline also partners with top chefs for their menus, so you may actually want to wake up for dinner, for a change!
