How to negotiate the start of your campervan holiday from Paris Charles de Gaulle airport (CDG)
- Your first motorhome rental?
If this is your first time to hire a campervan no worries as the procedure is quiet simple and we are here to advice you all the way.
We can advise where is the best place to hire and suppliers that have the best vehicles to suit your requirements.
- You have landed at the airport so how to get to central Paris?
Paris as a city can be daunting but in fact it is well serviced by the Metro the underground and excellent trains.
There are many means of transport from the airports like Charles de Gaulle airport (CDG), Beauvais and Orly airports.
There are many options but the best way from my experience is get a private chauffeured car direct from the airport terminal to your hotel.
- Second choice of transport would be a pre-arranged shuttle van ?
Shuttle van transfers cost more than a bus, but less than a taxi and are a less stressful way at the end of a long flight. Then if you want to save money and don’t mind struggling a bit with your luggage, there are also two bus choices, as well as the RER train. Whatever you decide, our advice is to know what’s going to happen when you arrive. It makes the experience much more pleasant. Let’s take a look at five ways to get from Charles de Gaulle airport to central Paris.
- What is the RER train in Paris?
In Paris the RER is as an express underground or underground train. Beyond Paris city centre, the Paris RER is a ground level commuter train connecting outlying suburbs and tourism destinations such as CDG Airport (RER B), Disneyland Paris (RER A) and Versailles (RER C) to the heart of Paris.
It takes 40 minutes the RER A train travels from city centre Paris to Eurodisney at Marne La Vallée station.
- What is the cheapest way to get from Charles de Gaulle airport (CDG) to the Paris city centre?
The cheapest way is by Bus or take the RER train but this means having the hassle of luggage and if you have any elderly companions this is not a good idea.
This option is ok for young people that do not mind a bit of hardship to save money.
But if you have a large group I would highly recommend a large shuttle taxi or minibus as the individual price will be pretty affordable when split by 6 or 8 persons.
- Planning a campervan holiday starting from Paris?
Paris can be a little daunting due to it’s size but all Campervan rental companies have their bases in the suburbs of Paris one near Eurodisney at 77400 LAGNY SUR MARNE (PARIS) and another supplier in the South West of Paris at 92500 Rueil-Malmaison. There are also some supplier that will service the airports in Paris and collect you at the terminal building from your incoming flight. The airport service is generally more expensive as the driver have to make his own way home and may be serviced by campervan suppliers up to 100 kms outside Paris centre.
- What do you suggest I bring on a Campervan holiday?
The first suggestion is not to bring any rigid suitcases, best to bring canvas baggage that can be put in storage lockers under beds.
But you can bring sleeping bags if you want to save some money on bedding.When you book online you can add any extras you like like picnic tables and chairs nice when sitting outside in the summer evenings in a campground.
- Can I pick up a campervan on the day or should I book in advance?
You definitely cannot pick up a campervan like a car rental. Car hire is readily available except for some high season dates.You should always pre book your campervan well in advance in the summer high season Mid June to mid September we would recommend you book some months in advance. In fact we recommend about 6 months is advance if you want to be sure to get the model you prefer. campervans in Europe book out every year well in advance for high season. We also recommend you take a larger vehicle if travelling with a few people to give more room on a long trip. If there are only two people travelling then a small compact campervan is fine and great for getting into urban areas.
- Can I pick up a campervan in Paris and drop it back in another location?
This is called a one way trip and is on special request and generally it is with a minimum rental period of 7 days hire.
But Paris to Nice,Marseille,Nantes,Grenoble,Lyon are possible for an extra one way fee. This is an ideal way to pick up in paris and maybe travel down south to do a trip around the Camargue or the French Riviera or over to the vineyards of Bordeaux. The one way helps you by not having to drive back to Paris.
- Is it possible to travel to other counters in Europe?
The Europe Union (EU) is made up of 28 countries including Switzerland and Norway who are aligned so you may travel without restriction to all these countries.
This is part of the EU thought is to have a border less Europe with freedom of travel to work in any country.
Some travelers to Europe may require a visa check here
But once inside Europe there are no internal borders so freedom to travel.
You may travel from Paris to Greece or Paris to Finland the whole of Europe is open to travel.
- Can I pick up a campervan in Paris and drop back in Rome?
This is possible to do a one way Campervan trip on a minimum rental period of 14 days hire. The rental centre in Paris does not have any rental depots outside of France so they will send a driver to collect the vehicle in Rome. have a look at our one way page here.
- How do I get around Paris is there a ring road?
This is the A86 known locally as the Paris super-périphérique.
Traffic on this can be very congested at pear times so important to travel off peak if possible. But it is nearly impossible if you wish to travel North / South or to cross Paris.Most campervan rental depots are near the A86 so you can get on an Autoroute fast and get out of Paris.
- Can I drive a Campervan around Paris?
We do not recommend this as traffic and parking is very congested in Paris. Also this experience would ruin your holiday so we suggest a local motorhome campground in Paris.
- Can I stay at a convenient RV or Motorhome campground near Paris city centre.
There are some excellent campgrounds available in and near the Paris city centre. One in the west of Paris at Bois de Boulogne and you may also park a campervan at EuroDisney.
- How do I get to Camping Paris?
By Campervan or car
From Paris: ring road exit Porte Maillot / Bois de Boulogne.
From the A13 motorway: exit “Bois de Boulogne”
By public transport: Metro 1 to Porte Maillot station, exit 6 – Avenue Charles de Gaulle. At the exit of the metro, take bus 244, get off at Moulins Camping or opt for the private shuttle of the campsite which drops you off at the entrance.
- Should I take the autoroute or a minor road?
When driving in France, in spite of the cost, it is generally worthwhile taking motorways (autoroutes) unless you have time to go at a more leisurely pace. However, there are some useful tips to help you cut down on the cost of your trip across France. When you get out of the major urban centres you may transfer off the autoroute to a minor road and enjoy rural France.
