Hi Everyone, hope you are all either getting to travel or planning to do so again. I am off to Europe with my better half. We fly to Paris for a few days. I want to book us a transfer to the city. Hoping to have a nice car, driver with a professional reputable company that can meet us in the terminal, I haven't flown to Charles De Gaulle before so anyones experience if you can share would be greatly appreciated. Thanks LTF

I've never booked a transfer from CDG but you should not be too quick to discount taxis. Taxis in Paris are clean and the drivers are generally good. There's a mandatory flat rate for transfers into the city (from memory of when I was last there in April I think it was EUR 55) so you can be reasonably certain that you're not getting ripped off. It's usual practice to tip about 10%.
I can recommend G7 taxis, and you can book them online.
Many thanks for the reply Sibelius and that is really helpful. Puts my mind at ease more.
Glad to be helpful! If you book online, be aware that it may take an hour or more to collect your luggage and clear immigration if you're arriving from a non-Schengen country (ie. Australia). If the stories of airport chaos in Europe are to be believed it might even take longer.

Current rates from CDG are 58 euros to Rive Gauche, 53 euros to Rive Droit. I agree with Sibelius; use a taxi, hire cars are unnecessary. Same rates on return, with lower fixed fares to/from Paris-Orly. The trip can often run into very heavy traffic, so if you return to CDG by road leave sufficient time to be sitting in a traffic jam. Train (RER) is often preferable in this case, that is when they are not having a "mouvement social" (i.e. strike)!
