    Can anyone advise me what is the cheapest way to get to CDG T1 for a 7am flight on a Saturday? I will be staying close to Chatlet-Les Halles so the RER B could be a possibility but I can't find much information about the first departure time ..
    Any advice would be great,

    We took te Air France bus from Arc de Triomphe for 12 EUR each from memory. Leaves early from memory. Cheap, but not fast!

    If you have a 0700 departure, and it is an internaitonal flight, you'll probably need to be at the airport at least by 0500 (for a Y or W booking) or 0530 (for a J booking). The earliest departure for RER B to CDG is 0516 from Denfert Rocherau, which will get you to CDG too late, or leaves little room for error. I guess a cab, or if not self funded, a hire car would be your best option (I doubt there are any shuttles that run that early in sufficient time for you to check in):

    Paris airport shuttle services : schedules, fares travel time...

    The only alternatives would be to book into an hotel close to the airport or change your flight.

    I agree with VirginiaF - If you caught a taxi at least there would not be much traffic. However if you phone for a taxi the meter starts from its originating point, so it could have 10 euro or so already on the meter. It would be a risk to just try and hail a taxi at that time in the morning.

    I think your best alternatives is, to either book a shuttle, or stay the night before at an airport hotel.

    Thanks for your help. Might just look for a shuttle then.

    I've done the early departure from CDG a couple of times and both times successfully used transfers booked through - just reconfirm the day before.
