Most all taxis are independently owned and operated, usually by the driver himself. There are three primary dispatch companies: Taxi G7, Taxi Bleu, and Alpha Taxi. At least one, Taxi G7, has an English speaking operator 01 41 27 66 99.

Call the night before to arrange for pickup. Allow 50 minutes to reach CDG. If it is raining, allow an additional 15 to 20 minutes to the pickup time as drivers can become overloaded.

What time is your flight? For the beginning of the morning, the airport staff don't even go on duty mostly until about 5:30 a.m. Are you planning to be there to greet them?

No. I only assumed we needed to be there 2 hours early for a flight to Budapest. We have a 7:10 flight.

You might want to find out what time the check-in desk will open and plan to be there just a few minutes ahead (as there will likely be a line when the desk opens).

That early in the morning, a taxi will likely get you to your terminal in under 30 minutes. But, it's always a good idea to allow more time than less.

Here's another huge recommendation for reserving a day ahead and for

Taxi G7 (English) 01 41 27 66 99. They have always been totally reliable. Be at the curb and ready to go a few minutes ahead of time, as they are always a bit early and there's often no place to park.

Know your departure terminal.
