IETF Meeting Wiki


There are a number of ways to get from Charles De Gaulle Airport to the main IETF Hotels (Hotel Concorde La Fayette and Le Meridian Etoile).

There are taxi ranks at Terminal 1, Exit 20; Terminals 2A and 2C, Exit 6; Terminals 2B and 2D, Exit 7; and Terminals 2E and 2F, Exit 1. Standard metered rates into central Paris are around €50. Fares increase by about 15 percent at night, and on Sundays and public vacations

When you're in the taxi line, you can ask the dispatcher (who typically will speak English) for a taxi that accepts credit cards. They will check with the driver for you, since not all taxis take cards. Those that do accept cards have in the past accepted Visa cards, but not American Express.
