CDG Departure Help

Jump to last reply

We are two couples in our 60's, who will be meeting up in Paris at the end of August. Just for background. my husband and I have only visited France on cruise port stops, but have been to Italy four times, where we have taken a ferry, train, and rental car. The other couple have little international travel experience. None of us speak French.

We will spend some time in Paris before taking the train to Bayeux, where we have booked a two day Normandy tour (this is my husband's "bucket list" item). We will pick up a rental car there and drive to the Mont Saint Michele area, where we will spend a few more days. All accommodations and the rental car have been booked way in advance due to the World Equestrian Games.

We leave MSM early on a Sunday and will drive to Roissy en France, planning a stop in Giverny en route. We have booked the Marriott in Roissey for Sunday night and plan to return the rental car at the airport the next morning. Our flights depart Monday from different terminals at 10:05am on United and 10:30am on Air France. I've studied the CDG map and also read threads with instructions for finding the Hertz rental return (is it on the lower level of the parking area marked "Pr" across from Terminal 1 on the CDG website map?), but I'm hoping someone can tell me how we will get to Terminal 1 and 2 after dropping off the car. I guess I really just need to know how we will get to a CDGVAL stop. I know there will probably be directional signs, but will feel better if I have some idea of where we are going.

Thank you in advance for any information/suggestions that you feel will be helpful in reducing our departure day stress.

Carla
