How Much Can I Expect to Pay for a Taxi from Paris Airports?Depending on traffic conditions and the time of day you're traveling, you can expect to pay anywhere from 35 to 70 Euros for a single taxi ride to or from airports in Paris. Of course, if you take a taxi from Denfert-Rochereau in south Paris to the relatively nearby Orly Airport, you'll pay at the lower end of the scale. If you were to take a taxi all the way from South Paris to Roissy-Charles de Gaulle Airport well north of the city, expect a much higher rate. You may always ask the taxi for the average fare from your point of departure before accepting the ride. Remember that if you reserve a taxi in advance, you'll generally have to pay a reservation and pickup fee on top of the fare itself.
Where to Find Taxis to and From Paris Airports?At Charles de Gaulle and Orly Airports, look for signs and icons pointing to taxi pickup zones from your arrivals terminal.
From Paris, if you don't wish to reserve a taxi ahead of time, you can find taxis in abundance around major train and transport centers such as Gare du Nord, Gare de L'Est, Gare du Montparnasse, Gare d'Austerlitz or Gare St Lazare. If you're heading to Charles de Gaulle Airport, it's best to hail a taxi from Gare du Nord or Gare de l'Est, since the overall fare will generally be cheaper from these points. If you're heading to Orly Airport south of Paris, hailing a cab from Gare Montparnasse or the Denfert-Rochereau RER station can be a good option.
One safety caveat: Never accept a ride in a taxi that does not have a meter, a clearly visible sign on the roof reading "taxi" or otherwise strikes you as less than professional in appearance. This can lead to getting ripped off, and there have also been isolated incidents of kidnappings in the past by individuals posing as taxi drivers.
