Paris taxi fees to be fixed

New fees with a fixed maximum for airport trips unveiled for Paris taxis to help make them more competitive

NEW maximum taxi fees for Paris taxis have been unveiled in a bid to help keep official taxis competitive with mini cabs.

The fees range from a maximum €30 for a journey from Paris south of the Seine to Orly airport, to €55 from southern Paris to Roissy Charles-de-Gaulle.

The other fixed maximums are €50 for northern Paris to Charles-de-Gaulle and €35 from northern Paris to Orly.

These fees are on top of a “reservation fee” of no more than €7 for a reservation in advance, or €4 for an immediate trip.

The fees do not represent a large saving compared to current ones, apart from when there are heavy jams when a trip to Charles-de-Gaulle sometimes reaches around €60-80.

What is more at present taxi metres often start out with €15 already on the clock for the ‘reservation’ fee.

The new fees will be rolled out from March 2016, with some limited trials expected before then.

Minicabs already offer fixed-price airport trips, so the new measure was brought in by the government to help taxis compete.
