Fly to the French Riviera from Seattle, Boston, Chicago and other US cities from $531 round-trip

You should never waste too much time before booking the fare deals we spotlight, but this one, in particular, demands your immediate attention. Flights to the French Riviera are available now on American Airlines and British Airways at massive savings.

The travel window is quite limited; it’s mainly for travel in September, which is shoulder season and just after peak tourist season. But at these prices, it’s worth moving around your schedule to take advantage of the offers.

The departure cities include Austin, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Seattle and Washington, D.C. You’ll fly into Nice Cote d’Azur Airport (NCE), which is the primary hub for travel in and out of the French Riviera. All flights include layovers.

This sale is for economy tickets, but with American and British Airways, you get a free carry-on. If you want to pack a few extra outfits to glam it up for a night out in Monte Carlo, Monaco — just 40 minutes away from Nice — it will cost you around $75 each way to upgrade and check a bag.
