Taking the Métro 

Your Eurostar ticket doesn't include the Métro or RER.  You can buy Paris Métro tickets at the bar buffet on board Eurostar to save you time on arrival as the queues at the ticket machines can be long.

Taking a taxi 

The taxi rank at Paris Gare du Nord is near Eurostar arrivals. Head to the concourse at the front of the train then take the exit on the right where you'll see the line of taxis. 

If you're travelling in Business Premier, speak to the team in the Business Premier lounge or on board to pre-book a taxi and beat the queues.
