    The service is good and quick. They had no diesel cars left, but we could choose from several gasoline cars. The only minus - too many scratches on all doors, roof ...

    It was a little unclear at first after coming through passport control in the arrival hall, but found the rental place very quickly, bus service ok. Service was excellent, very friendly person, taking the time to explain the contract. I knew about the full tank of petrol, which I don't like, but have to accept. Also the insurance was explained. The car hire was very cheap so I wasn't expecting too much, the car had a few marks on it, but was in perfect working order. Tires could do with a renewal soon. The car was clean, radio working,so all in all I was happy.

A Quick Guide to... Paris Charles De Gaulle Airport

Charles de Gaulle Airport is around 16 miles north east of Paris in the village of Roissy-en-France. For this reason, the airport is often locally referred to as Roissy Airport. Charles de Gaulle Airport (or CDG) is Paris's main airport and France's largest. It sees in excess of 50 million passengers each year from all over the world and covers an area of around 12.5sqm. Compare that to Heathrow which covers just 4.7sqm and you can begin to understand the scale of it. It has a reputation for being a little confusing as although it officially only has three terminals, Terminal Two has been extended to incorporate seven smaller terminals known as 2A ? 2G. Once you know this, everything becomes clear.

Also serving Paris are Paris Orly Airport and Le Bourget Airport. Paris Orly lies around 8 miles to the south of Paris and is around 25 miles from CDG. It is France's second largest airport and has two terminals which see in excess of 20 million passengers each year. Le Bourget is 7 miles north northeast of the French capital and around 4 miles from CDG. Le Bourget is mainly used for business jets as well as the occasional Airshow.
