I have to catch a cab from Evry-Courcouronnes near Paris, France to the Charles-de-Gaulle airport on a Sunday. I have to reach at 8:30 AM to ensure an easy check-in. Please let me know if you could tell me a good taxi company that would not cost me too much.

The Guru Take
Scheduling a car? Try these options
Short answer: You should look for a service that allows scheduling, like limos, certain taxi companies, Uber (in certain cities), Lyft (in certain cities), and Gett (in certain cities).
Long answer: Traditionally, rideshares were meant to be requested at the time of travel. It's "on-demand." This is also the case with taxis where you usually have to call or hail one off the street.
If you want to schedule a ride and you wanted to be fairly certain they show up, you would hire a service like limo or "limousines", who would confirm with you the time and place. The driver will show up faithfully and reliably. (You may need to put down a deposit.)
With that said, in the recent months, the rideshare companies like Uber, Lift, and Gett started allowing users to book in advance. Unfortunately, the availability of this service is limited to certain locations and reliability is unproven. (Remember, while they say they are scheduling it, basically, what happens is that Uber will call a car for you around the time you requested. It does not mean any driver is aware or has been assigned in advance.)
