Taxi services to the airport in France

In this article we are to speak about another topic and it is about the taxi services to the airport, exist a variety of companies that offer this service, we are speak about prices about top companies and a little review of each one, also the experience of some tourist with this kind of service.

As an example most of the travelers get from the CDG airport to central Paris by taxi. It’s the easiest way to get from the airport if you have not book a private car or shuttle and not require any pre pay for the booking

the French taxis are regulated and are generally clean and convenient. The only issue is that the wait for a taxi is sometimes too long or either the lines are long or taxis are slow in arriving. When you’re coming off 8 or 12 or 20 hours of travel, this can be trying. That’s one reason we always use a private car service for our trips into France from the airport. It makes our arrival in France so much the better.

If you have a small child or are disabled, you don’t need to wait in the taxi line-up (or, for that matter, almost any line-up in France). Make yourself known to the queue attendant and he will whisk you into the next available cab. One tip is to have your infant in the stroller so you are easily noticed.

Now if you are just wondering how much should a taxi from as an example from CDG (Paris international airport) airport to Paris center cost? A taxi should be about 50E (+/- 5E)Don’t pre-pay for any shuttle or private service. They have a spotty record of showing up. The taxi queue is just outside the door at the airport. Only take a taxi from this line. It will have a Taxi Parisian sign on the roof. These are the only city-sanctioned taxis.

If you want to save a bit, you can take the Air France bus to whichever stop is nearest your hotel and then a cab from there. If your French is good, write down the name of your hotel and its address and hand it to the taxi driver. Another people would suggest to take the RER train from CDG to the station that is closest to your hotel and a taxi from there. they try to avoid lengthy road travel.

Now we are to make a little list of the best companies that have a very good reviews from the users and are highly rated on the trip advise companies.    

The list begins with:

SupperShuttle: they are one of the most recommend companies to made your trip to the airport like the comment of Elena Burchy that describe the service as wonderful and she said the will use it again for a future trip.

About the company we can say they were created 30 years ago in California, SuperShuttle pioneered the shared-ride airport ground transportation concept. Today, SuperShuttle is the first shared-ride airport transportation service worldwide, providing door-to-door service for over 8 million passengers per year. Currently, SuperShuttle provides service to and from more than 40 airports and over 50 cities and has approximately 1,200 distinctive blue and yellow vans on the road. In September 2009, SuperShuttle Paris started operations, offering shared and private shuttles to or from France’ airports.This information was taking from the web site of the company and if you are interested in contact them the address is:

Airport Van: this is other recommended company and is not only recommended by the users also for many web site that rate the transport companies, we can found reviews like Jessica Andrews that wrote this review “Booking was easy online. You just give the date you need the shuttle, input your flight and time and credit card info, and you’re booked. You do need to be ready 4 hours before your flight time. That seems really early, but they build in extra time in case of traffic. In the end, we were thankful we had extra time at the airport because we ran into long snafus at check-in.”

About the company they describe as amarket leader since 1997 and still going strong. 
Airport Van have provided quality door-to-door ground transportation to and from France airports, to over one million satisfied customers. If you want to contact them and book the service in the web site.

Grey Shuttle: they are an amazing company they just do not have a single bad review by customer or a website and once again we are to show you one of the reviews of a customer and the information of the website of the company.

Crist Lewiston as a customer write the next review “I was so impressed with how easy it was to book the trip, that both drivers spoke excellent English, and how the service was professional, but still friendly. We were able to find our driver upon arrival (even when our plane was delayed over an hour) exactly where he described, and were immediately led to the shuttle to get to our hotel. As a family of 4 who were exhausted from a long flight and very little sleep, I cannot tell you what relief it was to have it all handled when we arrived. The shuttle itself was well kept, the driving was safe and efficient, and I felt very confident that my family and I were in good hands. “

Inter service prestige: what can we say about the company? Well first of all they are another super recommended company, amazing booking service and they have their own app.

About the review of the customer I going to cite Sara Nganu: “Quick response for our booking request, simple and well documented confirmation email. Competitive rates. Liked the follow up email in the days before our trip to reconfirm. Warm greeting on arrival at CDG airport and very comfortable transfer to our accommodation near Disney. Same great experience on the return journey. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a stress free transfers!”

speaking by the website, what we can say is that is very friendly and easy for the user, they describe like a one of the leading shuttle services in France having 15 years’ experience. They provide prestige transport facilities to euro Disney with safety and comfortably at very attractive and reasonable rates.

DS Prestige: This company is exclusive from Paris but is here for the excellent reviews that they got from the customer and the experts that rate transport companies in France.

Once Again we are to cite a review of a customer in this time Sharon Sullivan wrote the next review “We used this to/from Paris CDG and found the service very timely (mostly early) and easy to use. They were aware our plane was delayed 5hrs from Lisbon and still were there to pick us up on time. The guy from Pakistan (forget his name) into Paris was very well dressed and had a very clean Mercedes van gave us great advice. The guy out of Paris was less polished but nice. Great price $55 / 2 peeps. I only wish they would respond to email when we emailed them to discuss delay. I called to reassure myself but they seemed aware. Will use again”.

In the web site of the company what we can note is that is colorful and easy to use for the customer. They offer Private taxi transfers from Charles de Gaulle (CDG), Orly and Beauvais Airports to Any destination in Paris as well as transfers to Paris Disneyland Resort and hotels near by Marne-la-Vallée and Val d’Europe Areas.

Taxi in Paris: Another Parisian company but do not let the name confuse you, they have present in all the country. Debora Pellegrini told us the next “The driver arrived on time and took us to the CDG airport without any issues. I plan to use them again! The cab was clean and the driver was curtious!”.

About the booking process is easy and friendly also have their own App but just for Apple devices, alsoin the website, you can easily calculate the amount of money required to have the services. There are many more options further like which one of the package you choose on the basis of quality and economic satisfactory. The primary specialty in theirpayment process is there is completely no Hidden Charges. And that is entirely sure! So, you need not worry about any extra amount of money to carry about. And that’s obviously a plus for the valued customers they have. Paris taxi fare is the genuine format that they follow, and they are good at it.

Flash Transfer:This company also have very good reviews they are good but also is the best choice in the economical perspective, yes they are cheaper but not for that reason the service is bad, they have an excellent service punctual and very warm fulltreatment, so other highly recommend company I don’t have word to describe them, and they offer you a variety of vehicles all depend of the service that you need. A Little description from them is they consider themselves as one of the most experienced and economical Private shuttle service in France. They operate in all the major airports in France (CDG Roissy Charles de Gaulle, Orly and BVA Beauvais) and all the main train station in Paris (Gare du Nord, Gare de Lyon, Gare Montparnasse, Gare Saint Lazare, Gare Austerlitz and Gare de l’Est). They also provide transfers to and from all Paris hotels. They will be delighted to pick you up and drop you off at any location you have chosen in your reservation.

Jason Sandler wrote the next review “Booked airport transfers from CDG to the city and back through the website and through email. It was fast and easy. Communication through email was a breeze. We had some flight changes the night before our departure and we coordinated via email, they are very accommodating to adjust to the new schedule even if it was last minute. The drivers were very nice and polite. Cars were clean. Will book the service again when I go back to Paris.”

BT Transfer:OK, from the beginning let me explain something this is a British company in France and you know what this mean, they are punctual, excellent booking service, all the drivers are very friendly and of courses they are fast, all the reviews speak wonderful things about the service but the main reason is because most of the clients of the company work for an airlines and that tell you a lot about how fast and how good is this company. They describe as a private Airport Transfers company in France. Specialists in travels to eurodisney providing free booster seats & baby seats, you can book your transfer now and pay upon your arrival. Most dependable and experienced team in Paris

Andrea Leit wrote the next review “I was hesitant to prearrange a transfer based upon past comments but saw the high ratings of the recent comments and decided to take a chance. BEST decision ever! We had 6 people in our group. Our pick up was there to greet us with easy travel into Paris and they were early to pick us up for the return trip. Both drivers assisted with luggage. Highly recommend them. It was worth the little bit of extra money over a taxi.”

Note: All the reviews were taken from tripadvisor and yelp and the description of the company from the web site of each company.
