Paris Travel Planner   Taxis & Transfers: Orly Airport to Paris
Taxis from Paris-Orly Airport work on flat rates. They are more expensive than fast RER trains or airport buses but they make sense for traveling parties of two, three, or four people.





The advantages of taking a taxi from Paris-Orly Airport into central Paris are obvious: you load yourself and your luggage into a taxi at the airport, sit back, relax, and let the driver take you directly to your hotel or rental apartment.


The big disadvantage is cost. Also, depending on traffic, the taxi ride might take longer than riding the OrlyVal shuttle train to the RER train to Paris, and travel time might be almost the same as the much cheaper, similarly comfortable OrlyBus.

Of course, the number of travelers in your party affects cost also. There may not be much difference in cost between three airport bus fares and one taxi fare for three passengers.

Book Your Taxi in Advance!

The safest and best way to go by taxi is to book your taxi in advance (for up to three passengers). You'll know the price, and where to meet your driver, in advance, and you'll go straight to your hotel. More...

Avoid Unauthorized Taxis!

Do not respond to anyone in the terminal who asks if you would like taxi service, even if they "look official." Instead, if you want a taxi, follow the signs to the authorized taxi stand and take one of the authorized taxis there.


Whether or not to use a taxi depends to some extent how close your destination is to an RER Line B train station, Métro station, or airport bus stop: if close to a station, you might save time—and will certainly save a lot of money—by taking the train and Métro, or an airport bus.

If your destination is a long walk from an RER Line B train or Métro station, or from the OrlyBus stops, you may have to switch to a taxi in central Paris.

Although this short in-the-city taxi ride will cost much less than the 25-km ride from the airport, you will still have to pay the minimum fare, and it's a hassle to change vehicles.
