How to Get From Beauvais Airport to Paris

Flying from or to Paris through the Beauvais Airport? Man, this will not spark joy. The good news? This article won’t be long since this Airport is the size of a handkerchief – so you will be able to just skim through it and ~enjoy the views~.

TAXI/UBER/ETC

This is def­i­nite­ly the fastest and most com­fort­able way to get to the city, with the jour­ney last­ing around 60–90 min (depend­ing on where you’re stay­ing). They are wait­ing for you by the exit on both of the ter­mi­nals, so it should not be dif­fi­cult to spot one. While book­ing a good ol’ Uber may be tempt­ing, they can’t use the bus lane here (while the ~real taxis~ can). A sweet spot? Get a G7 taxi app – it works like Uber (so you can pre-book it while wait­ing for your lug­gage or even a few hours before; and you can pay with cash tho). It’s super reli­able and can use that bus pri­or­i­ty lane, allow­ing you to wave to all the uncul­tured swines stand­ing in the traf­fic while you pass them by ~like a VIP~. Taxi dri­vers rarely speak Eng­lish, but you may eas­i­ly get by with a lit­tle help from a trans­la­tor of your choice. By the way, unless you’re 100% sure you know the cor­rect pro­nun­ci­a­tion of the place you need to go to, don’t try to freestyle – it sets the French peo­ple right off ~for some rea­son~ (an eye­roll in eng­lish-speak­er). Want to bal­ance the cheap air­port with some lux­u­ri­ous dri­ve? Check out our favorite pri­vate shut­tle com­pa­nies here:

BUS BEAUVAIS

Bus Beau­vais is the easy and cheap way to get to Paris. It con­nects the air­port with the Porte Mail­lot metro/RER/ tram (soon) sta­tion at the west­ern bor­der, near the Arc du Tri­om­phe with­in 1:15h. From there you can hop on the 1 line metro line hor­i­zon­tal­ly cross­ing the whole city, which actu­al­ly makes the Bus not such a bad solu­tion after all. With the ser­vice run­ning from 3:30 am to 10:50 pm, there’s a pret­ty good chance you will catch your flight and the bus does not real­ly enter Paris inner cir­cle, the traf­fic is not so severe. You can buy the tick­ets online, as well as in many auto­mat­ic machines around the air­port – let’s say you will def­i­nite­ly feel encour­aged to take it. The truth is, there’s no oth­er way that will get you to the city with­out any con­nec­tions before­hand, so it’s def­i­nite­ly worth try­ing out if taxi or any oth­er pri­vate shut­tle is not for you.
