AirFrance coach Charles de Gaulle Airport to Paris




The coaches are air-conditioned with good luggage compartments plus you get assistance with handling your luggage. They operate every half hour, seven days a week to various city centre locations.


The disadvantage is, you do not get taken directly to your final destination such as your hotel in Paris but the stops in the city are next to Metro and railway stations so you can easily get to there or access other transport options if you are continuing on your journey.



Once you have cleared customs and collected your luggage look for the signs in the airport (vers = to/in the direction of ) to get to the coach relevant to your final destination within the city. There are 3 colour coded lines or routes from Charles de Gaulle Airport, you should **plan ahead to check which of the routes best suits your final destination or plans.

Buy your ticket at 'Les Cars' Air France counter in the terminals (all except 2G) or pay the driver as you board.
