Airport to city with a wheelchair

Looking for advice on how best to get from CDG airport to arondissment 15 with three adults, two suitcases and a wheelchair.

Would we fit all of us and our luggage in a taxi and if so how much would we expect to pay?

Do you just hail a taxi or is there a formalised way of getting one?

G7 (and possibly Taxis Bleus) has vans that can accommodate wheelchairs:

No, you don't hail a taxi. There are clear signs at the airport leading you to the official taxi rank, and that is where you should go (don't pay any attention to random rogues who may approach you asking if you want a taxi - they're illegal). The official taxi line can seem long, but it moves quickly. A taxi official will find an appropriate vehicle for you, but in your case, you may want to call or email G& ahead of time to arrange special service (in which case the official may move your party to a different waiting line).

There are always scores of waiting taxis at CDG. If there is a line, the delay is in the boarding process as only 5 or 6 taxis at a time are allowed to approach the departure platforms but that´s where you should go, the official taxi queue.

In addition to the fare (about 50€ into Paris), expect to pay 1€ per bag placed into the trunk (charged after the 1st). Taxis are specifically prohibited from charging for the transportation of a wheelchair.
