Ideally, you would return the car at an in town rental office near Porte d´Orléan, the point at which A6 enters Paris at the Périphérique (you do not actually enter onto the Périphérique). Alternatively, you could drop off at ORY which is along A6 and relatively easy to reach.

Secondly, from ORY a taxi is exactly 30€ to the Left Bank as long as you avoid unlicensed drivers soliciting from within the terminals. Go to the official taxi queues which are at the baggage claim exits. Taxi drivers are not tipped.

Just did it again last month driving in from Brittany. Easy to follow the signs, drop off, take an elevator up one flight, walk out the door to the official stand. As Tocard said, 30 euro flat rate from Orly—quite a deal. And we do tip cabbies in our family, always. Although we have French licences and used to drive in Paris daily, I prefer to drop outside the city and let a taxi take me to the door, but if we have to drive in town, we do, but it can be slow and frustrating.

From the Porte d’Orleans you’d still need a taxi and it wouldn’t be a flat rate, so it could be 30 € or more. That’s another reason we dropped at Orly—we’d need a taxi anyway with the junk we were lugging.

From the airports, Uber and other VTCs are problematic as there is no place to easily pickup passengers. With other Uber concerns such as surge pricing and the inability to access bus lanes, I would stay with taxis.
