Taxis Tips (30)

Taxi monsieur

Got taxi from gare du nord coming up to friday midnight.

there was a huge queue and although we had to wait, it was not a long wait. i think the taxis know when eurostar arrives and there were loads, hence the short wait.

It was safe, the queues orderly. And not as pricey as i was expecting!

The only warning is as you leave the station, dodgy sorts approach and offer you a taxi, with no waiting. even when we said no, he wouldnt not stop badgering us so i had to REALLY tell him.

Take a Taxi

Taxi was our choice of transportation to get from the airport to the hotel. We found a tai relatively quickly after claiming the bag and off we went. The ride was smooth and virtually traffic free since it was so early in the morning. The tipr cost 40 Euros but was worth it to not have to lug luggage on public transport.

Best Taxi in Paris

G7- taxis must be best taxis in Paris. You can order it advance and it REALLY IS there just in time.

About 50EUR from Paris to CG Airport, but it may be more if there are lot of traffic.

Also, very nice drivers and they can talk english too (they really asked if we like to have english-spoken driver)

Paris Taxi Fare Calculator Tool

I get a kick out of this online taxi fare calculator for Paris:

When I put in CDG to your destination I get this: -(assuming you arrive in am):

Estimated Fare using meter at 08:43

Distance: 29.58 km. | Duration: 29 min.
jump in the taxi 2.10 € (this is probably wrong - should be 5,60 ?)
29.58 km. x 1.10 € per km 32.55 € (should be 30km x 0,83 euro?)
waiting in traffic (~11 min.) 5.55 € (thought this was clever)
Total 40.20 €

Sounds close but who knows? Anke-Thea
is probably more accurate.

Either way, it's a fun tool to play with for estimating Paris fares & my hat's off to whoever put this little taxi fare site together. Supposedly works in Amsterdam Barcelona Berlin Boston Chicago Dublin London Los Angeles Madrid New York Paris Prague Rome San Francisco Toronto. It would be fun to know if you think it's accurate in your city. Best regards!

Go to the North subburbs of Paris


to go to Gennevilliers, you can take RER + metro, it would take you around 1H30 and 13 Euros for the both tickets

Genneviliers is in the North, I would suggest you to consider to take a Shuttle company for 35 Euros (net)
for example

Rip-off taxi driver

We arrived at the Gare du Nord by Eurostar on the first day of a strike of all public transport in Paris. It was cold and dark and there was a massive queue waiting for taxis at the official taxi-rank. When we spotted 'taxis' waiting at another place we went over to them. One of the drivers told us that we would not get to our hotel in Montemartre for less than the 70 Euros he wanted to charge. He became quite agressive when we tried to get the price down so we left him and went back to the queue. We didn't have to wait too long for an 'official' metered taxi which took us to our hotel for €10!

Taxi to CDG

In the interest of speed my cousin and I decided to take a taxi from
our hotel on the Left Bank to CGD Airport. It took about 45 minutes
with moderate traffic and cost about 50 Euros + tip. It was faster
than the Blue Shuttle (25E) and much faster than the Metro.

Parisien Taxis

If you will take a taxi in Paris , you have to pay minimum Eur.5,70 even taximeter shows less than Eur.5,70 when you get out of taxi.
From Orly Airport to Opera area by taxi at 23:00 , I had paid only Eur.35. But from Opera area to Orly I had paid Eur.45 in the afternoon.

Taxi vs. Airport Shuttle

We just had family visit us in Paris and they had to pay over 100 euros to take a taxi from the CDG airport to our home in the 15th arrondissement for 3 people and 6 bags.

For their return trip to the CDG airport, we booked an airport shuttle with Paris Shuttle. The total price for the 3 people and 6 bags was drastically better as they only paid 57 euros. This seemed to be a much better option as the pick-up could be for a private residence and the driver showed up on time. The company uses VW vans, so there was plenty of room for passengers and lots of luggage.

The Paris Taxi!

Well, the Paris Taxi is useful. It's the only transportation after 1 am but don't count on it during the week ends, you spend hours looking for them and they are rare and all taken. You might have to walk back to the Hotel. But that isn't so bad in the summer and is very romantic if you are not wearing high heels. It has happened to me often, twice on New Year's Eve, walking home after the Party from the other side of Paris! Be careful they don't take you on a trip. From the airport to Paris is around 45 euros. Anywhere inside Paris is around 10, a bit more at night. They often take tourists to their destinations in a very roundabout way which is not fun if you are on a tight budget, but otherwise it's always nice to visit Paris and it's beautiful. But watch them, I am sorry to say I have had some nasty surprises and I live here!

From one airport to the other

Getting from one airport to another by taxi costs about 50-60 euros! There are shuttles for only 12 euros, but stop running after 9-10 pm. The taxi was our only option. Our taxi driver was very kind and even had a candy jar on the arm chair....but he was very fast and did not obey any signs...i don't think any of the driver do.
