Paris insider tips

  • Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG) is 26 km northeast of the city and serves as the main international airport in Paris, but you can also fly into Orly Airport (ORY) and Paris Beauvais (BVA).
  • Asian carriers such as China Air, China Eastern, China Southern and Vietnam Airlines regularly have the cheapest flight deals to Paris. The catch is a long layover in Asia, although you could take advantage of this for a quick stopover. You'll find more favourable layover times, and a resulting shorter total journey, with airlines like Qatar, Singapore Airlines and Qantas.
  • Use more than one online flight search engine to expand your search for flight deals to Paris, since there is not one that shows all possible flight options. You can also sign up to alerts when the route price changes.
  • Most airlines can fly you into one airport and out of another and this is common for a trip to Europe. Flight-booking websites have multi-city search capability so you can figure out the options. Taking one leg to/from Amsterdam could even be cheaper than a return flight to Paris, whereas flying into or out of London will normally cost a bit more.
  • Paris is understandably very strict on security at present, so allow yourself extra time at the airport – the same applies for sightseeing around major attractions.

How to get around Paris from the airport

The cheapest and most reliable transport method from Charles de Gaulle is the RER train line. Take the CDGVal light-rail to the train station, which takes around 45 minutes or the Roissybus, which runs to the Paris Opera area non-stop and takes up to 90 minutes. Air France provides shuttle buses to nearby metro stations, Montparnasse and Gare de Lyon.

The Orlybus departs from Paris Orly and goes to the metro station in Montparnasse. Air France runs shuttles to Les Invalides and Montparnasse. The cheapest option is to take take the Orlyval monorail or a shuttle bus to the RER train station, and the train to Paris then takes 35 minutes.

Paris Beauvais is a lesser known airport located 85 km north of Paris, and budget airline Ryanair uses it for for flights coming in and out. Shuttles to the city are available and take about 75 minutes.

Alternatively you can reserve private shuttle services in advance or take a taxi from outside any of the three airports. Just note that taxis in Paris are not cheap. Car hire desks are open at both Charles de Gaulle and Orly Airport. You can also pre-book online to avoid disappointment, particularly during peak periods. Companies available to book are: Avis, Budget, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Europcar, Firefly, Hertz, Sixt, Interrent, Alamo, Advantage, Dollar, National, Thrifty and TT Car Transit.
