Paris CDG early in the morning

My son is travelling from Tours in the Loire Valley to Paris to catch his flight from CDG to Birmingham. The problem is that he will arrive in Paris at around 5pm in the afternoon but his flight from CDG is not until 7am the following morning. What should be do, is there a cheap hotel near the airport or would it be safe to bunk down at the airport?

Any advice gratefully received. Thanks

He should either stay at one of the cheap hotels at airport or rest his head at a place close to the RER B line, which connects the airport to the rest of Paris.

Hotels in Roissy-CDG:


Sleeping in airports comes with its own advantages and risks...I guess he could try his luck, but I wouldn't endorse the idea...

The RER B line starts operation from Paris - Opéra at 5h45 and does not reach CDG until 6h30 at the earliest. An attempt to use it will not get your son to the airport sufficiently early to catch a 7h00 departure.

I recommend he either stay in a hotel near the airport with shuttle service sufficiently early to deliver him to the airport around 5h00 or maybe take his chances staying at the airport overnight.
