Is anyone familiar with the RER stop Luxembourg? Looks like we may have to take a wheelchair for our daughter who broke her foot recently. She will have a walking boot so she can walk, but not long distances. My main concern is getting that wheelchair off the RER and out onto the street. How difficult will that be? We will have our RS bags and the chair.
There are up escalators (assuming that they are working). Are you traveling from the airport? How many are in your group?
Infomobi.com is usually pretty current.
There's a way to switch it to English, I think.
Thanks for the website Ed. Although I have done lots of research and mostly don't understand it all!
There are three of us in our group. We may decide on a taxi or shuttle. I got a quote from Inter Service Prestige for 50 E for all three of us with luggage and wheelchair. I'm just cheap so I'm checking out all our options. Anyone use Prestige services?
Susan I have used Inter-Shuttle twice,,they are fine. I liked that I did not have to pre pay, I would never use anything o had to prepay read way too many posts about problems and no refunds for prepaid services.
I would also suggest taking just a official taxi from taxi stand.
With three of you a taxi is worth the extra 10-20 euros for door to door service,.
So, Pat, it the Inter shuttle the same as the inter shuttle prestige?
If I were wrestling a wheelchair and had my luggage coming in from the airport and three people, I would take a taxi without hesitation. Coming in on the train you are prime pickpocket targets especially trying to manage a wheelchair on top of other luggage. And you are putting an injured person through the hassle. It is a false economy to try to take the train which will cost you about 30 Euro when a cab will cost about 50. Shuttles are pretty unreliable in Paris and don't save enough for the hassle to be worth it.
I guess my concern would be if a standard taxi could fit a wheelchair, three bags and three people, or if we would need a van size shuttle. Any thoughts on that?
The starter will put you in a mini van rather than a sedan if it's required.
Exactly. Take a taxi, the taxi line guy will see that you need a bigger one and will out you in one of those. You have way too much going on to be hassling with the RER.
Ok, thank you everyone, that is what we will do….a taxi!
Sounds like a plan. Bon voyage!
