then taking a train to Paris
and also want to hit Amsterdam
Flying back out from London
What is the cheapest method of doing this triangle
I know round trip from London to Paris seems to run about 150 American.
this is an 8 day drip
I think the cheapest way to do this, is to browse the budget flight web sites, look for bargins and book the flights as much in advance as possible.
I dont know how much the train from london to paris would be, but flying might be cheaper.
Budget flight sites
www.skyscanner.net - budget flight search engine.
BTW, you can also take the train from London to Paris:
www.eurostar.com and the train from Amsterdam to London: www.ns.nl. Look for their special promotion offers.
Buses are here: www.eurolines.com.
When booking the flights, consider the time and the money you spent getting from the city center to the airport. For budget flights leaving from or going to London you often spent more money on getting to/away from the airport than on the ticket itself.
BTW, 8 days are really pushing it. Even flying, you will loose about 2 days getting from one place to the other. You usually need about 5 days for London and Paris each to really enjoy the city and Amsterdam needs another 3.
If you can make it into a 10 or 14 day trip, do so.
yeah go ryanair or easyjet, my two favorite airlines. you can get flights for 1p on ryanair as long as you book a month or so in advance.
