au revoir


Explanation:
Au revoir is the usual, fairly formal way of saying 'goodbye', and can be used in virtually any context.

Ciao is common amongst friends, especially over the phone.

Salut is similar to 'bye' - i.e. informal and usually used with people you will be seeing again very soon.

'A bientôt' means see you soon.

There are many possibilities...
