Will saterday be a very busy day on the road ?

Hello,

Saterday leaving to go to charles de Gaulle Airport .

We are leaving from Belgium .

Anyone an idea if it will be very busy on the road from Lille to Charles de Gaule ?

Need to be there at 14.00 and thinking to leave home at 7.30u ( the distance is 290km)

Many thanks .

Every Saturday **except** this Saturday -- you're forgetting the mass exodus to the countryside, since French schools finished the school year this week, and the mad rush to head out on holiday starts Friday afternoon.

Inbound to Paris, however, should be better -- most of the traffic will be headed north to Normandy and south to Provence.

Heading INTO Paris on a Saturady morning will be no problem.

Saturday June 30 will be one of the busiest days of the year on all roads going south through France. You will be sharing the Autoroute du Nord (A1) with half of the population of Belgium and the Netherlands. (The other half will be on the A31 motorway in Lorraine.)

You can always go get a cup of coffee and whinge about having time to kill....but you can't catch a plane that's already left...
