Do I get an arrival transfer?
You will not have an arrival transfer because Charles de Gaulle airport is very well-connected to the city via public transport, which is an easier option. We suggest taking the train to Gare du Nord – this will be the quickest and cheapest option for you. Your dedicated Trip Expert can, however, arrange an arrival and departure transfer for you, but please note that this is an optional extra and not included in your adventure.
Do I get a departure transfer?
A departure transfer is not included, however, the journey to the airport only takes around 30 minutes. Uber is available in Nice or a taxi can be booked from the hotel. We recommend that Flashpackers share taxis if they are heading to the airport at similar times. You can also take a bus, it’s a good idea to check the best route with the hotel before setting off.
