Paris Beauvais airport, is quite a distance (88km) north of the city. It is a small regional airport used by some low-cost carriers such as Ryanair and WizzAir and is actually just outside the village of
Tillé and not in Beauvais itself !
but there is a convenient coach service that ties in
with flight arrivals to take you into the city of
Our advice is don't do it !!!.....use another form of transport.
If you have come to France only to experience 'The City of Lights', that is Paris, then we recommend you avoid the driving adventure entirely.
If you need convincing not to drive in Paris check out the video below. This is at the notorious roundabout at the
'Arc de Triomphe', the roads are not all like this but af for your first time in the city or your sanity -maybe it is best to avoid driving. If your touring Europe by car then you may have to although you might consider parking your car in the station car park and picking up the RER train in the suburbs and taking this into central Paris - it is inexpensive and easy to manage ( see here... ) as once you are in the city its transport network means you won't need your car!
If you you really
must drive then you can check out your route into Paris from the airport
**To help plan your trip to your final destination check-outratp's-interactive-map-herewhere you will find maps for RER trains, buses, night buses and the Metro. Note: to find the metro station at the on the map simply click on the 'Find on map' tab and scroll down until you locate 'Porte Maillot'- once chosen it will start to 'flash'. When it does just click on it and it will display your route options. Because of its map location 'Port Maillot' appears under the drop-down screen so you need to close it to view its location. Remember your ticket, once bought, will work for both the metro and RER within zone 1.
