Customer feedback

Superorganized in every detail. ....The information before, upgrading the car without extra charge in advance, the fast and nice service at the pick up place and the reasonable price!
Ten out of ten. Both drivers were on time and professional. Would definitely use Kiwi taxis again. Communication was also good Keeping us informed of driver contact details
The driver was waiting for us at the exit, even with the plane arriving late. He was very polite, drove well, we could understand each other perfectly in english (even that it was not our first language). Everything went well and I definetly recommend the service.

Transfer vs. Trains from Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport

Advantages of a private transfer

You will not get lost. Charles de Gaulle Airport is a huge building and one can easily get lost there. Practically identical signs guide the people to suburban and inter-city trains. And if you do not know the difference between abbreviations RER and TVG, you risk ending up in Marseille instead of Paris city center. Transfer driver, on the contrary, meets you in front of the Arrivals area and shows the way.

No transport changes. Obviously, you will not get to your hotel by RER-B: after the train journey, you will need to change to the underground and then sometimes to the bus. To grasp a payment system is even more difficult: when you buy a train ticket from Charles de Gaulle Airport, you get a free underground ticket but not for all zones (e.g. you cannot get to Disneyland with it). Having booked our service in advance, you can avoid all problems connected with route building and price calculations, as the driver will choose the shortest way for you.

Disadvantage of a private transfer

Trains are 5 times cheaper. RER B ticket costs around €10 for one person. However, given the changes to underground or buses, this price is competitive with the transfer cost for four people, which is € 50.

Transfer vs. Buses from Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport

4 times faster. Given the number of stops and a waiting time, the bus trip will take you almost two hours, whereas a transfer - only 30 minutes.

No need to speak French. One of the major problems tourists face at Charles de Gaulle Airport is unwillingness of public transport drivers to speak English.

All Kiwitaxi drivers at Charles de Gaulle Airport speak English and all the trips are coordinated by an English-speaking operator.

Disadvantage of a private transfer

Bus ticket is much cheaper. City bus ticket from the airport costs €6–7,6.
