Can someone please help me.
Husband and I are arriving in CDG Paris next Sunday 25 June at 3.40 in the afternoon. This surprise Paris trip was booked by me two months ago and being female and not interested in it, I was unaware that the world cup was on. I think my husband would like to see a little of the England match if possible. He's not obsessed by football, but I know he'd prefer to catch some of it after all it is his birthday treat.
First of all I though we'd just grab a taxi as we usually do. But reading around makes me wonder if the RER would be faster as we are staying very near according to the hotel to ..."RER B "Luxembourg" station, exit : "rue de l'abbé de l'épée", in front of the hotel, 35 minutes far away from Roissy CDG Airport."
My niece has sent me 16 carnet tickets which I believe are left over from her Paris trip this month. ( Don't know why it's 16 and wonder if the number is important)
My question is how many of these carnet tickets would my husband and I need to use for the trip from CDG on the RER.? Having the tickets will surely speed everything up.
Are they suitable on all transport?
Would a taxi get us there faster? I presume this match starts at 5pm on Sunday France time. Sports fans please help a bewildered wife! Might there be a large screen TV at the airport somewhere so we could delay our journey to the hotel so he can see this. Normally I might protest, but I'm really flexible on this as this as it is his treat.
