Fixed Taxi Fare Between Paris and Airports – Strike Tips

Fixed Paris taxi fare from right bank plus supplement for reserving day of reservationStrikes getting the best of you? Book a taxi on the G7 Book a Taxi page in advance to get to the airports. Usually you can either step outside and into a taxi or book the same day. With the strikes, you want to reserve a taxi, with G7 whether going to the airport or into Paris. Taxi stands are outside the airport and do not usually have to be booked in advance. Rates vary between Rossy-Charles de Gaulle (CDG) and Orly (ORY).

After an expensive experience pre-fixed rates, I had a rude surprise. Being stuck in traffic to the airport Roissy-Charles de Gaulle one day, 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. I was very happy to see the fixed rate!

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.

Add four (4) Euros if taxi is booked on the same day. Add seven (7) Euros when booked in advance. During a strike period, book in advance within a week of knowing about the strike.

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 (Site officiel de l’administration française) 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 a few decades ago with three years in Wiesbaden, Germany. My next foray onto the Continent was 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. In 1990 for American Airlines I began working as a flight attendant, 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 after 20 years. 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 https://www.youtube.com/colleensparis and I am active in Toastmasters. Enjoy!
