Best Airport Transfer in Paris
So, you’ve finally booked your flight to the magical city of Paris. Your hotel room is reserved, your bags are packed, you’re excited to arrive at this wonderful location… but what do you do once you land?
Taking a bus or train can be time-consuming and extremely troublesome with luggage, and airport taxis can be expensive and hard to navigate with language barriers. Your best option? A pre-booked airport transfer.
Booking in advance not only saves you money, but it also gives you the peace of mind that you can step off the plane, glide through luggage claim, sit back in your very own private car, and enjoy the quick journey to your accommodation.
Having said that, not all airport transfers are of the same high standard, and some companies only work with certain airports. However, there is one company that stands out above the rest. One that has an impressive 5* rating on TripAdvisor, and always goes above and beyond to please, Welcome Pickups. So, whether you’re traveling to Charles de Gaulle, Orly or Beauvais-Tille Airport, I highly recommend booking yourself a Welcome Pickup.
What makes Welcome different?
Booking an airport transfer with Welcome isn’t just a secure way to get to your accommodation, it’s like having a well-informed friend living in the city. They can help you plan every aspect of your stay in Paris, and are there 24/7 to answer questions, deal with special requests and give advice. The best part? Welcome works online via email, so you don’t need to have a phone line in France to stay in touch with them, only a wifi connection.
Once you’ve booked your Airport Transfer, a whole world of goodies and extras is opened up to you. You can access your very own Trip Page where you can book local and day tours, make changes to your reservation, pre-order essentials like a SIM card or Wifi hotspot, as well as skip-the-line tickets to local attractions.
When you arrive at the airport, your English-speaking driver will be waiting for you with a complimentary water, map and Welcome bag packed with your pre-ordered goodies. You will then begin the journey to your accommodation, where you can ask any questions about the wonderful city of Paris and your driver will give local recommendations about hidden gems and things to do during your stay.
Hand delivered travel essentials
One of my favorite things about booking a Welcome is the outstanding customer service. They truly go above and beyond to make your time in Paris special from the very first moment. You can really see this through their travel essentials service.
After booking your pickup, you are able to pre-order some amazing products, guaranteed to give your trip to Paris a little bit of added sparkle. If you’re like me and love to keep in touch with those back home while away on vacation, then you’ll love their local SIM cards and Wifi hotspots. Their skip-the-line tickets are also the best way to see all the attractions of Paris with ease. Imagine going to the Arc de Triumph Rooftop, Louvre Museum, Sainte-Chappelle or Centre Pompidou without those gigantic queues… magic!
Whatever you choose to pre-order, your driver will have it waiting for you inside your free Welcome Bag, along with a local map – how handy!
Booking a Welcome Experience
Welcome also offers tours around Paris, and to nearby attractions and towns, which are called Welcome Experiences. Once you book a pickup you will be given access to a personalized Trip Page, with carefully curated recommendations based on your selected interests.
You can book full day tours to places like Versailles Palace, Disneyland, Monet’s Gardens in Giverny and outlet shopping in Troyes. Your driver will pick you up from your accommodation on the morning of your tour and give you any tips and information you may need while transporting you smoothly along your chosen tour route. You can enjoy a day exploring some of the most beautiful areas of France, knowing that your personal driver will be there for any needs or questions throughout the day.
Welcome also offers fully customizable tours within the city of Paris. You can use the recommended itinerary or create one of your own, based on your personal interests. See local attractions such as the famous Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triumph and Champs-Élysées, all with the knowledge and in-sight of your Parisian driver. The stops you choose to make and the amount of time spent in each place is completely up to you, so no matter what your schedule, Welcome can create the perfect tour.
Welcome also has amazing connections and partnerships with local tour operators, such as the amazingly fun Paris bike tour. They can help you get the best prices and book activities with these 3rd party companies, all from your personalized Trip Page.
The reviews speak for themselves…
Welcome Pickups is the only airport transfer service in Paris with a stellar 5* rating on TripAdvisor. Just reading through the thoughtful and gushing reviews is enough to make anyone choose this fabulous company.
“I have used a few car services during many trips. I have never experienced such a high level of personal care. I wasn’t well on the night before our pick up and the staff was in constant contact to make sure I was comfortable. I would recommend to anyone, very good rates compared to other private car services I have used.”
“Initially we had planned on using Uber but did not realize it would rely on using cell phone service (didn’t have international plan). Welcome Pickups was all through web & email so I was able to use wifi to book. The fact that you provide your flight information so they can track arrivals was a specific feature that sold us. Drivers were professional, punctual, and everything went smoothly. Highly recommend, worry free service for airport pickup and drop off.”
“Great Dependable Service. The 2 tours we took were well organized and we got to see a lot in those 2 days. I highly recommend their services for your transportation and tour needs.”
“What you want in a taxi service is on time and quick. Our driver was there on time, with complimentary chilled orange drink and water. If you need a pickup service, you can’t go wrong with this company.”
