Taxis

Expect to pay 40 to 45 euros for travel between Orly and the city center. (Fares are slightly higher between 5 p.m. and 10 a.m., on Sundays, and on holidays. Tipping is optional but customary; a few euros should be adequate.)

Driving time can be anywhere from 30 to 90 minutes, depending on traffic. See our Paris Taxis article for more advice on traveling by cab.

Airport shuttles

Paris Airport Shuttle will take you to or from your hotel in central Paris for 17 to 30 euros per person (depending on the number of travelers in your party) with a €3 surcharge for trips early in the morning or at night. Transportation is in shared seven-passenger vans. Book online at least 24 hours in advance, and you'll receive a voucher by e-mail or fax.

A competitor, Parishuttle, offers rates of €13 to €32 in eight-passenger vans.

Another option is to prebook Orly airport shuttles in euros, British pounds, US. dollars, or Australian dollars with our tour partner, Viator Paris. (Viator's rates are sometimes--though not always--lower than the shuttle company's own prices.)

Need a car in Europe?

If you live outside the EU, a tax-free Renault or Peugeot tourist lease can be cheaper than renting. Minimum driver age is 18, there' s no upper age limit, and rates include insurance.
