While you can use a RATP public bus, OrlyVal train shuttle, or a hotel shuttle minibus to get from the airport to CBD, perhaps renting your preferred vehicle from car rental at Paris Orly Airport is a better option. Having a rental car offers you flexibility, comfort, and convenience. Besides, unlike public alternatives that operate on a fixed schedule and route, you have the freedom to plan your day and night travels as you wish without any restrictions. Paris is a beautiful city with many places to visit and sights to see. Having a car will ensure that you leave no route untraveled.
There are numerous on-site Paris Orly Airport car rental companies, and locating their desks is quick and easy even for first-timers. The airport has a rental car center located next to the arrivals area of Terminals 1 and 2. Some rental companies are located along Aeroport D'orly 3 Niveau -1, Bat 101 Zone Des Petites Industries, and along Orly Ouest Airport.
If you are a traveler operating on a tight budget, you can still save some dollars with your rental car. First, go for an economy car. Some compact minivan, mini SUV, and small-sized family cars that can achieve a fuel economy of over 40 mpg will save you some dollars on gas. You can still save a few more dollars if you refill on gas stations that are located further away from the airport.
Like any other big city, Paris roads have different speed limits that aim to enhance the safety of all road users.

These speed limits are usually lowered during wet climates. For example, the speed limit on the périphérique ring road is usually 70 km/h during dry climates and 50 km/h during wet climates.
