Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG) @Kevin Bosc

Travelling from the airport into Paris:

From Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport (Roissy) to Paris, you may choose to travel by official taxi, which charges a set rate for the journey into the city.

The only taxis allowed to pick up passengers are those waiting at the ranks outside the Arrivals exits.

These official taxis can be easily recognised by their illuminated signs on the roof. We advise you to decline any offers from anyone claiming to operate a licenced taxi who approaches you as you leave the baggage claim area.
