Shuttle in Paris

What shuttle services are people using in Paris currently? I searched the message boards and see comments from a couple of years ago mentioning parishuttle and supershuttle. I wanted to just get some up-to-date info for our trip next month. Thanks.

Bill, I used one of the Shuttles about a week ago, but didn't really notice which one it was (the hotel booked it for me). I may be able to find a receipt, but will have to dig through my trip records. It was a shared Shuttle and the cost from Rue Cler to the airport was €28. The Shuttles listed in the Guidebook should be reliable. Cheers!

We have used InterServicePrestige.com on 3 different trips. The last time was last month. They have been very good. They meet you at the gate as you exit baggage claim with your name on a card. I highly recommend them and we will definitely use them again.

Thanks for the replies. I am thinking of using Super Shuttle.

No, reviews for Super Shuttle are not good. Also how many in your group.. remember if Ken was alone and paid 28 euros that's one thing, but if he was with a friend and it was 28 euros each a taxi would have cost about the same price as two shuttle tickets. Do the math. Taxi ranges from 45-55 euros usually( can hit 60 at rush hour or if there are 4 of you and luggage as its 1 euro per suitcase extra and 3 euros extra for 4th person) // If you give a few more details people can lay out all your choices, cheapest, fastest, easiest,, they all are different. |How many of you and where in Paris are you headed too.

@pat, "remember if Ken was alone and paid 28 euros that's one thing" Yes, I was travelling solo at that time. I'll have to check my records to verify what I paid for the Shuttle.

There are 2 of us, myself and my wife. We need transportation to our hotel in the 6th arrondissement. We'll be arriving mid morning on a weekday. I hadn't thought of a taxi. I was thinking that would be way too expensive.

Bill, try the Roissybus, it is a shuttle (bus) that runs between Charles de Gaulle and Paris opera house. You are practically in the middle of Paris. From there you can easily take a taxi to your destination. It is relatively inexpensive (10 euros) and runs constantly. After our long journey we did not want to worry about transportation, we enjoyed the nice, quiet ride and the shuttle never makes a stop, it is one way direct from the airport or to it.

Bill, just another thought, have you considered the subway? It runs fast, but will make frequent stops. It would get you there quicker and be very inexpensive. We took the Roissybus from the airport, but to the airport, we took a taxi. Cost us around 75 euros. Way too expensive and I didn't think I was going to make it to the airport alive...of course that could have been due to the fact that it was 4 in the morning and the freeway was empty, but he drove way too fast for our comfort levels (between 80-90 mph the whole way there).

We were in Paris in 2009, 2010 and 2011. We had our hotel arrange a private taxi for us. The driver met us at the train station or at De Gaulle airport. He came up to us right after we picked up our luggage. It was a prearranged price and we paid the driver directly. It was nice to have the driver arrive at our pick-up location or for the return, at our hotel. The driver was on time, all six times. We enjoyed having the security that our driver would be there on time. One time, my husband realized he had left some money and his passport in the hotel safe. The driver had to turn around and take us back to the hotel. He didn't charge us anything extra either. We also hit traffic going to De Gaulle, but it didn't matter as we didn't have the meter running.
