SuperShuttle Will Now Pick You Up At Paris' Three Airports

Where: Paris, France

Où allez-vous? These are the words you will be hearing from your blue-jacketed SuperShuttle driver when he arrives to pick you up at any of the Paris airports for the trip into the city. That's right—Supershuttle, the shared bus airport transport company, has just opened their first international location, giving you some options for getting between Paris' center and its Charles de Gaulle, Orly and Beauvais airports.

Today in the Sky fills us in that average per-person rates for the trip between Paris and CDG is 27 Euros ($40) and reservations must be made at least 24 hours in advance.

We actually frequently opt to take SuperShuttles to the airport, but warn that being picked up from the airport by them is very iffy and not once have we had a successful pick-up. Once, after a 13+hour flight back from Hong Kong, we spent an hour and a half on the curb at JFK while we waited for our SuperShuttle ride, despite having made reservations online. Oh, there were plenty SuperShuttle drivers there hanging out, it's just none of them had our name on their roster. Moral of the story? Always program SuperShuttle's phone number into your mobile, which was the only thing that eventually saved us.

Don't Use Super Shuttle Paris...

..if you want to make your flight. I've had a good experience with using Super Shuttle in the US, but Super Shuttle Paris was a horrible mistake. This summer I booked their shuttle to take me to CDG from Paris. The shuttle never arrived. Had to take a taxi instead. And my refund requests have gone into a black hole.
