Paris Metro: Money Saving Tips For The City’s Subway

by on Mar.01, 2011, under France Travel

Traveling on the Paris subway system (Le Metro) is an excellent way to explore the city on the cheap. And like many popular destinations, Paris offers a tourist card called Paris Visite Carte, but as we found out it may not be the cheapest way to ride the city’s subway.

Sure, the Paris Visite Card maybe the easiest way to start using the Paris Metro, but that doesn’t necessarily mean its the most budget friendly. Depending on what day of the week you arrive in Paris, and how long you are staying, a better (cheaper) option maybe to purchase the weekly or monthly pass known as Passe Navigo Decouverte, which is only available through RATP/SNCF ticket windows in the subway and at train stations. One of the main differences between the two passes, is that the Paris Visite Card is valid from the first day of use, while the Passe Navigo Decouverte takes effect at the start of each week or month.

Except for Disneyland and Versailles, Paris’ famous sights and attractions can be found inside subway zones 1 and 2. Check out the fare chart below to see the different price categories for the Paris’ Metro and subway passes. All prices are in Euros.

Le Metro Individual Tickets:

One ticket 1.70

Book of 10 tickets 12.00

Single-use ticket purchased on a bus

Le Metro Paris Visite Carte

Zones 1 Day 2 Day 3 Day

1-3 9.30 15.20 20.70

1-6 19.60 29.90 41.90

* A perk to the Paris Visite Card is that the tourist pass can be used for discounts for various sightseeing tours and attractions in the city, for example, 20-40% admission discounts to Arc de Triomphe, the Opera House and the Pantheon.

Paris’ Pass Navigo Decouverte

Zones Week Month

1 – 2 17.20 56.60

1 – 3 22.70 74.40

1 – 4 27.90 91.70

1 – 5 33.40 109.90

1 – 6 37.60 123.60

*It cost an additional one-time 5 euro fee to obtain the Paris’ Navigo Pass. In addition, A passport size photo, which you can supply or purchase from a photo booth near the ticket window for 4 euro , is also required for your Paris weekly or monthly Navigo Pass, which is transferable between your Paris’ Navigo Pass.

Considered one of the most efficient transit systems in the world, I highly recommend picking up one of the passes for your Paris travels.
