They use their own vehicles, 8 seater mini vans which can fit up to 8 persons for their shared shuttle and “parisgreencar” for their private transfer. These cars driven by uniformed bilingual chauffeurs are air-conditioned, non smoking and outfitted with GPS. For a ride from Orly or CDG airport to your hotel or home address for instance, their rate is 25 euros for one person and 16 euros for 4 to 8 persons. The rates are adjusted depending on the number of the passengers. Like many of the shuttle companies, the more you are, the more the tariffs are cheaper. So, for a ride from Orly airport or CDG to Eurodisney, you need to pay 38 euros for one person and 21 euros for 6 to 8 persons. As for the private transfer, from CDG to Eurodisney, they apply 83 euros for 1 or 4 persons and 103 euros for 5 or 8 persons.

The company owner of this website is among the first shuttle service in Paris since they begin to operate also 21 years ago. They propose different services including private transfer, shared shuttle, transfer to Eurodisney, Versailles’s castles, Park Asterix, the Parisian Exhibition Park, and also visit of Paris and France. They use a fleet of 8 seater and recent vehicles less than 2 years. These air-conditioned, non-smoking and GPS controlled vans are also outfitted with GSM mobile phones and are driven by clean, courteous, bilingual chauffeur with decent appearance. The mark of these cars is caravelle of Volkswagen. Concerning their pre-purchased shared shuttle transfer rates, they propose 29 euros for 1 person and 13 euros for persons for a transfer from CDG to Paris city. And between Orly airport to Disneyland, their tariff is 60 euros for 1 person and 12.5 euros for 8 persons. And the price for a private transfer between Orly and Paris is 65 euros, and for 7 to 8 persons, they propose 110 euros. So, if there are many passengers, their rates are among the cheapest compared to the other websites as we’re going to compare at the end of the post, but their child seats are charged at the adult fee’s fare. But note that they debit an extra fee of 20 % for a departure or arrival between 10 pm and 5 am. And if the client cancelled a reservation from one day to 2 days before transfer, the website applies cancellation fees about half of the overall price and for more than 2 days before the transfer, they take 15 % of the total price. But if it’s done on the day of transfer or one day before the transfer, the service gives no refund. On the other hand, for any delays of flight, the company applies also additional costs. Clients have also to call the company 24 hours before their departure to make a confirmation of their transfer. This company accepts various methods of payment such as American express, Paypal, visa, mastercard, blue card.

 

 

This company serves 4 airports (Orly, Beauvais, CDG and Bourget). They propose no hidden charges. The clients have to pay ahead all online booking via Mastercard or visa on their secure website. For the booking process, the client has to fill out the enquiry form and their requirements for the transfer. After this purchase, they simply need to print off the confirmation email and show it to the driver during the transfer. They have uniformed bilingual drivers and their agents speak also English, german, italian and Spanish. Their fleet of cars includes comfortable saloon cars, luxurious mini vans and spacious cars. And the color of all their minibuses is yellow with their logo. Their tariff for their door to door shuttle service between CDG to Paris or vice-versa is 31 euros for 1 person and 13 euros for 8 persons. Like parishuttle, they also have a logo of parisgreencar.com with their 4 seats car. Clients can make also reservations making a call straight away to the website or sending them a fax. As for their methods of payment, they offer only visa and mastercard. Concerning the cancellation fees, this company takes 50 % of the overall price the day before the scheduled time of the transfer and more than 2 days before the transfer, they deduct 5 % of the amount paid. But if the client does the cancellation the day of the transfer, he shall get no refund. This company does not track the arrival of flight. They wait up to 60 mn after the scheduled time of the arrival of the plane, but after this time they do not guarantee the transfer. So, if there are delays of arrival of flight due to strikes or whatever cause, you might miss your yellowvan since they do not adjust the pickup time to the arrival time of the flight.

 

This company created in California led the way to the airport transportation concept 30 years ago. It is the first shared and private shuttles airport transportation service worldwide. It provides service in about 40 airports and 50 cities in the worlds. Supershuttle is known for its responsiveness (reply within 24 hours), its reliable and safe passenger service with personalized greetings, and its several quality partnerships (Corsair, Look Voyages, vacances Transat…). It started operations between the three airports (CDG, Orly, Beauvais), Disneyland and nearest suburbs in 2009. Actually, they own 1200 blue and yellow vans which operate on the road. This company offers also an affiliate program for those who are interested in displaying their offers, thus monetizing their websites at the same time. Concerning their service, Supershuttle tracks the flight of its clients and regulates the pickup time to the landing time or the flight departure time. So, passengers will not have to worry if the driver is there waiting for them with the sign or not. Otherwise, they can cancel reservation 6 hours up to their departure times. If they cancel booking more than 24 hours before the scheduled time of the pickup, they get 100 % reimbursement. If the cancellation is done between 6 hours and 24 hours before the scheduled time of the transfer, they receive back 50 % of the paid amount. And if the cancellation takes place less than 6 hours before the time of transfer, the clients get no refund. Besides, clients can have a free wifi connection during their trip. This leader of the transportation industry takes a banking prepayment and credit cards (American cards…). About their rates, a shared ride from CDG to Paris and northern suburbs for one passenger for example costs 37 euros and for 8 persons 86 euros. And a shared shuttle from Orly to Paris and northern suburbs for one passenger is around 23 euros and 72 euros for 8 passengers. And from BVA to Paris and northern region, their rate is 47 euros per person and 166 euros for 8 passengers. Looking at these prices, we see that they are rather on the high side for one person or for many passengers, and so are also the private rides. Their tariffs are in fact set between the price of a journey by taxi and that of a bus but they are not still very competitive. For example, for a private ride from CDG to Versailles, it costs 155 euros and from BVA to Versailles, it costs 170 euros. So, if you’re on a tight budget, you might not choose them but if you’re looking for a high quality transfer, you might opt for their service.

All these companies say that they offer the best service at the best price. But the best shuttle service depends on your criteria. Since each company has a different fleet and you might want to choose the most comfortable one. Some vans provide also more available options such as free wifi access, free child seats whereas in other services, passengers using child seats whether they are provided by the carrier or not have to pay full adult fare. When choosing a shuttle service, you have also to take into consideration the budget, the extra charge (for a bigger vehicle for example or for delay of arrival time) and to check rates and customer reviews.

So, for the cheapest shuttle service, we have chosen super-star-travel or their formula economy options with 1 to 3 persons available at 55 euros and paris-shuttle for up to 8 persons, you can choose sayshuttle for their quote at 69 euros. The quote of paris.airport-shuttle might be also interesting if your flight arrives during the hours where there is no extra charge.

So each company has their specificities but the one thing you have to bear in mind when choosing an airport shuttle service is whether the service tracks plane arrival or not. Since, if you purchase in advance a transfer, but there is an unexpected delay of one hour and a half, if the service does not adjust their pickup time to the flight arrival, you might as well pay again an exorbitant fee for a taxi. So you do better by choosing a convenient van at a price that matches your budget, but do not forget to inquire about this matter. Calling multiple companies and comparing their extra services might help you also to choose for the best ones.
