CDG Drop-Off Parking

When you are just dropping off or picking up your friends or loved ones, Charles de Gaulle Airport offers the Drop-Off Car Parks, which are very close to the terminals.  These car parks were designed with very short-term parking needs in mind and are ideal for when you need to park for just 10 minutes, up to an hour.  The Drop-Off Car Parks are open air and located near each of the terminals, including Terminal 1, Terminal 3, and Terminals 2A, 2B, 2C, 2D, and 2G.
