I) How to go to Paris Roissy Charles-de-Gaulle airport?

The airport of Paris-Charles-de-Gaulle is in the Top 10 of the busiest airports in the world. However, it is one of the few that is not linked with an express railway line.

Several solutions are offered to travellers.

By train lines, you can head to Roissy CDG airport by RER but you should opt for it if you do not carry too much or heavy bags. Indeed, as it is crowded and lacks of storage spaces of luggage (without mentioning all the stairs you will have to cope with during connections) it may be the less convenient and the longest but definitely the cheapest way to go to the airport. Make sure to travel light or even better let Eelway take care on this burden for you (we transfer sport and baby equipment, awesome, right?)! We can deliver your luggage from your home, to your destination.

By road, there is a stiff competition between buses, taxis or VTC but be aware of traffic jams!

Since the dezoning of the Navigo pass, during weekend and holidays, the airports are accessible with your usual pass.

Finally, for those who can go to CDG with their own vehicle, you still have the choice between a cheap parking lot or one of the new concepts like Ector or TripnDrive.

Also, think of verifying the terminal from which you leave, it can affect considerably the commute time. It takes about 10 minutes to connect terminal 1, 2 and 3 by CDG-VAL (free shuttle at the airport).
