Which is the best way of transportation to use for airport transfer?
We actually booked a private vehicle from Charles De Gaulle Airport to the hotel and the same for the return trip back to the airport. It cost about 55-65 euros and was well worth the cost for myself and my son, as we had never been to Paris before. And yes, we did tip the driver. It is a long distance between the airport and hotel. We booked the private vehicle via email to the hotel, whose staff graciously arranged to have someone meet us at the airport. We simply provided exact information on the airline we were traveling on, the flight number and arrival time. Once we were at the hotel, I simply made a request at the front desk and a driver picked us up at the appointed time and safely delivered us to the airport.
Paris is a huge city with very heavy traffic at all hours. We found this to be the best way to get to and from the hotel to the airport.
I had a shared van on my last trip, because the trip before I rode the train. I noticed someone scoping me out on the train and it was a pain dealing with luggage on the train. The shared van much easier and I learned in April to leave the driving to the locals. I booked the van ride though my travel agent.
