The advantages of booking a Private Taxi
The public taxis apply a rate that is based on the time the journey takes. For this reason, it can often happen that the price that has been agreed upon is no longer applicable as some of the less honest drivers try to earn more money by making the journey longer. The private taxis do not apply a tariff that depends on the journey time but a rate that is based on the distance travelled. Therefore, you will be able to take advantage of a fixed rate that is frozen at the time of making your booking.
Choose the date and time that you need for your pick-up. You won't have to wait. The driver will be waiting for you in the airport at the time requested in the booking.
The taxi is booked just for you, your family or the group of friends with whom you are travelling. In addition to this, if you are going on holiday with your children, a child's seat is always included in the price.
It often happens that the airlines schedule flights either very early in the morning or late at night when the various means of public transport are no longer running. In this case, booking a taxi service in advance is the only really workable option because this service is operational 24 hours a day.
A Private Taxi is the ideal solution for those who are travelling on business or those who simply want to drop off their luggage at the hotel and immediately go out exploring Paris without the encumbrance of heavy suitcases. In fact, with a private taxi, you will be taken straight to your intended destination using the fastest route which will save time for all the passengers.
ADVICE ABOUT TAXI SERVICES
It is vital that you book the shuttle a minimum of 24 hours prior to the scheduled pick-up time. The reservation can be done on-line 24 hours a day or via the Customer Services desk, in English, from 09:00 to 18:00.
Collect your baggage from the luggage belt, go through passport control and when you come through the doors of the Arrivals Hall, you will find your driver waiting for you with a sign bearing your name for ease of identification.
The driver cannot accept payment by credit card. Make sure that you are carrying enough cash with you to effect full payment.
In the event that your flight is delayed or cancelled, we would request that you let us know by sending a message to the emergency number that is provided in the email confirmation of your booking.
