Surely you would need a few sentences translated? Are you planning to haggle in french or something armed with just 3 words?

Mike has a point. There are a lot of French speaking members here - being a little more forthcoming will provide you with something more useful than a sort of 'grunt and point' translation...;)

Bottom line is, we all wanna know whatcha buyin!

cost = coût

how much? = combien ?

the packages = les paquets

Also, if you are speaking these words you'll need to know how to pronounce them, as they sound different to how they look.

Something like this:

coût = coo
combien = com-be-an
les paquets = lay pak-ay

Or if you really want to get by with just a few words, these ones might be more useful...

the packages would be translated as "les forfaits" if you are referring to photography packages. "les paquets", means the parcels.

"les forfaits" = lay for-fay

I've used the above 3 links on many, many occasions.....

The middle one seems to be more robust....

Wahoo! I knew there was a proper word for that, spent a half hour before going to work looking through my dictionaries with no joy.

I checked the OP's web site - beautiful work BTW ! - and had a feeling there was a problem with that term.

It's an Anglophone tendency to translate literally, and there are many 'faux amis' or false friends that muddy the water.
