**TAXI PRICE ESTIMATE in Paris**

Jump to last reply

My daughter & I will arrive at the Paris train station *Gare de Lyon* on a Friday afternoon in July 2015. Our hotel is in the 5th arr. I'm looking for suggestions for getting to the hotel w/ our luggage.

The rest of our stay, we will walk and take the metro. That does not intimidate me. However, I'm not certain that that is the best thing for us when we arrive w/ our 2 large suitcases plus carry-ons. I do not speak French; my daughter will have 3 yrs of HS French only at that time.

**What could we expect to pay for a taxi from the train station to the 5th?** Do all taxis take credit cards nowadays? [I do not live in a city in USA and never take taxis here either, so I am not up to date on what is standard for taxis.] Do you tip a taxi driver?

What is best for us? Thank you!
