    • To Paris Airports by plane and then on to various hotels in Paris via public transport





When travelling in Paris with public transport, you will need a ticket which can be used for : metro (till the terminal station), buses, RER and trains within Paris 1st zones.

For visitors in Paris RATP (public transport operator) proposes :

1)       T Tickets (for more information you can see : http://www.ratp.fr/en/ratp/c_21895/ticket-t/)

It is always better to buy a set of 10 tickets than a single one.

The fares for this kind of ticket are as follows :

-one single ticket : 1,70 € (when purchased on bus : 1,90 €)

-a set of 10 tickets : 12,50 €


Please note :

When changing between a metro line (n°1-14) and an RER train you have to revalidate your ticket and use it as well when leaving RER zone. In other words : when changing between two metro lines (ex. 1 and 12 at Concorde station) you validate you ticket only when entering metro), but when you need to change from line 10 to RER B at St. Michel Station you will use your ticket 3 times :

1)  when entering metro for example at  Mabillon Station (line 10)

2) changing for RER train at St. Michel (you have to validate your ticket at the RER terminal)

3) leaving RER zone at other station  (validation at the RER terminal)



2)       The Paris Visit Card (for more details please see : http://www.ratp.fr/en/ratp/c_21894/paris-visite/)

You can buy a one for 1,2,3 or 5 days. The fares are as follows :


Please note :

At a ticket office you will be given a magnetic ticket and the accompanying non-transferable card. However, should you make your purchase at a ticket machine you will only receive the magnetic ticket. You should then request the non-transferable card at a nearby ticket office or information counter. Without this non-transferable card you will be travelling in breach of the law.







If you would prefer to use the bus (which is a lot cheaper but a lot slower) then you can use a T-Ticket (see prices mentionned above and when purchasing on board a bit more expansive : 1,90€).



Visitors will be expected to pay for their own travel for the duration of the visit and keep all receipts or ensure their budget covers the cost.
