If you prefer faster and less crowded vehicles, then a taxi is the best option for you. However, keep in mind that Beauvais Airport is 85 km from the center of Paris, so be prepared to pay a high amount of money — from 140 euros to 180 euros.
If you do not like to use public transport, consider booking a private transport that will be waiting for you at the airport and will take you to the hotel or where you need it. The transfer company will send a professional driver to pick you up. You can even pre-order a child seat if you are traveling with a child.
For those who would like to get to the city and explore the surroundings on their own, the best option is to rent a car directly at the airport. There are six car rental companies such as Avis, Europcar, Sixt, Ucar, Hertz and Enterprise. Save time and book your car online (for 24 hours).
For large groups of passengers, we recommend renting a bus at the airport.
