CDG to Paris - taxi for 3? Cost effective?

There will be 3 adults arriving in Paris at CDG. Will a taxi hold 3 plus luggage? With splitting the cost 3 ways will this be more cost effective than the shuttle? Anyone who has taken a taxi into Paris recently - what is the average fare? We arrive 8:50 AM and my friends unfortunately will probably have checked luggage. But that should put us past morning rush hour

There are at least six ways of getting from CDG to a hotel in the city, all of them described here: tinyurl.com/mpjhn

The one you choose depends on your location on the cost/convenience scale.

Paris Visitors & Convention Bureau says about taxis from CDG to Paris:

"expect an average fare of 40 euros during the day (7am-7pm) and 45 euros at night and on Sundays and holidays"

It's more like 50-55 Euro-from around the 6th arr. to CDG-when I took a taxi last September.

Hi V,

>Will a taxi hold 3 plus luggage?

Depends on how much luggage.

A shuttle is about 18E pp.

A cab will be about the same price.

Shuttles and cabs can be caught in traffic. The cab's meter keeps running.

..no question, with 3 people (jet laged) a taxi is essentially the same as 3 shuttles..also more convenient.
