Fixed Taxi Fare Between Paris and Airports

Fixed Paris taxi fare from right bank plus supplement for reserving day of reservationBeing stuck in traffic to the airport Roissy-Charles de Gaulle one day last year, an anxious feeling came over me. The taxi meter kept counting, the fare kept mounting. I could not solve this mystery because I had no clues! It was now showing thirty euros over what I expected to pay. As we pulled up to the terminal, eighty euros was the final total plus my suitcase. Those days of the mystery taxi fare to or from an airport ended March 1, 2016.

The set rate to and from my apartment on the right bank is now fifty euros. A supplement is charged if you order a taxi the day of departure (four euros); any day prior (seven euros) and pick up on the street (zero euro). From the left bank, the flat rate is fifty-five euros. Additional fare information for Orly and explanations can be found on the G7 website for Paris Taxi Fares. One of our readers, Madelyn, suggested LeCab as an alternative to G7 for fixed prices within Paris and to and from the airports.

The Paris Mayor’s Office launched a Mairie de Paris – special taxi booking service without the supplement.

With the plethora of private taxis, the Parisian taxi monopoly has awakened to the dawn of competition.

The official site for French law (French Service-public page) includes the new rates between Roissy-Charles-de-Gaulle and Orly, supplemental charges and distance rates within Paris. These figures may change each year when taxi rates are adjusted in each of France’s departments (Ile-de-France is department number 75).

This Web site and and its blog articles are for travelers to Paris who are looking for advice from someone who lives in Paris. These tips are "for Parisians at heart". Many people would like to visit, some can and some cannot - so I will help you enjoy a glimpse of the city and its surroundings. This project has been ongoing since 2002. Prior to living in Paris (since 1992) my European history began in the early 70s with three years in Wiesbaden, Germany. My next foray onto the Continent was in the mid-80s after graduation from the University of Florida (where I met Erik): traveling around Europe and UK with my friend, Margie, hitchhiking around and working in Ireland. After living and working as a journalist in Sweden for four years, traveling on boats, the Trans-Siberian Railway, local trains and planes took Erik and I around the world. I began working as a flight attendant in 1990 for American Airlines, based in Chicago. We moved to Paris, France in 1992 where I commuted between Paris and Chicago for my flight attendant/stewardess job. Finally my inner voice said "Stop!" and I left American Airlines six weeks shy of 20 years January 1, 2010. Now that is over and I am back working as a journalist and photographer full time on Colleensparis.com - My videos are posted on YouTube on the colleensparis youtube channel. and I am active in Toastmasters 75.
