    Are there any major differences or drawbacks going into Orly (ORY) instead of DeGaulle (CDG)?

    Is Paris your destination or are you connecting? Connecting at CDG is time consuming because the terminals are so spread out. If youre just arriving, I dont think it’s too much of a difference. ORY might be faster because its a smaller airport. I think it also depends on how you’re getting from the airport to your final destination. There’s RER trains at CDG but not at ORY. ORY involves a tram to a nearby RER station.

    Thanks David.

    The ORY transit to Paris isn’t that bad. I actually prefer it to CDG – just follow the signage and you’ll be fine. It definitely isn’t a reason to prefer CDG as an arrival airport.

    The RER ride from CDG into Paris is about 40 min, but it’s a pretty painless transit. I will note if you arrive at an odd hour you can’t purchase RER or even Metro tickets from the kiosks (or at least I wasn’t successful during my visit). I had to purchase them from an attendant so they could use the EMV chip.

    Chip and pin is SO important for Europe. I think only the Barclays Arrival+ and AAviator cards have chip+pin for US cards.
