Should I use Uber?

We are a traveling party of four, arriving around 11:30 AM on May 21,2016. What would be the best way to reach our destination? Should we take an airport taxi or an Uber taxi to get our hotel? Which would be the cheaper way to travel from the airport? Any advice is appreciated.

Just go to the airport taxi queue. Do not take rides from people who approach you offering a taxi - they're not licensed.

It's a flat rate to the left bank of Paris. You'll pay 55 Euros for up to a total of four people, including luggage.

I'VE NEVER HEARD OF A FLAT RATE FROM A TAXI. I've paid anywhere from high 50s to high 60s. (euros). Depends on traffic & which way they go. This is from CDG to the 6th.

Sarastro gave this great pdf in another thread. When I go to Paris again, I will have it in my hand.

Uber works very well in Paris,but from the airport taxis are better because you can just go to the taxi line-very easy!

Sorry I don't know how to make the pdf a link.

Can you use credit cards in Paris taxis...or Euros only?

All taxis accept credit cards but I would ask before getting into any specific taxi as occasionally the processing equipment can have technical problems.
