Paris (CDG) Airport
Charles de Gaulle Airport is large and can be difficult to navigate although there are plenty of terminal maps throughout the buildings to assist you. Arrivals from Edinburgh are into Terminal 2D where you’ll find car hire desks for Avis, Budget, Enterprise, Europcar, Hertz, Sixt and Thrifty located in the terminal building. The taxi rank is directly opposite as you walk through arrivals.
A major train station for the TGV and RER B railway services is located beneath terminal two of the airport, between concourses C/D and E/F. Trains to Paris and various other French and Belgian cities are available from this station.
Flybe, easyJet and Air France offer a mobile check-in service which is available by downloading their respective apps. This can make your journey flow much easier because the app sends the boarding pass to your phone, avoiding any check in at the airport.
What to expect in Paris
When arriving from Edinburgh the first thing to note is the change in time, with Paris one hour ahead of The UK. The most important thing to remember is that Paris is an extremely expensive city! On the outer arrondissements or Parisian suburbs, a meal in a reasonably priced restaurant can cost around €30 per head and in the city centre, considerably more. The metro underground train system is a great way to get around and explore Paris and is well run although it can get extremely busy.
When arriving at Charles de Gaulle Airport it is important to remember that the only legal taxis in Paris are black and extremely regulated by the authorities. When you walk from arrivals towards the taxi rank or TGV station you will almost certainly be approached by several people offering cheap taxi services. You are advised not to hire a tax that is not regulated by the French authorities.
