It can be stressful being in a new city, not being able to speak the language, and struggling to understand a vast array of different public transport tickets being offered to you! The Paris Visite Travel Card is the ideal way to get around Paris if you are visiting, and if you buy it online from us, you can have it in your hand, ready to use as you step off the plane or the Eurostar. With just the one ticket the Paris Visite Travel Card entitles you to unlimited travel on the metro (underground/subway), RER trains (high speed trains linking major stations with the suburbs), the Ile-de-France bus and tram lines (RATP and Optile)*, and the Montmartre funiculaire. Choose between 1, 2, 3 or 5 consecutive calendar days (i.e. if you activate your travelcard at 17.00 on your first day, this will count as day 1 of your travelcard). The ticket is not dated and only becomes active from the date you first use it. When you purchase it you will also receive a Paris Metro/RER and street map with discount coupons for various attractions around Paris.
Your Paris Visite Travel Card zones 1-5 covers destinations such as Disneyland Paris, Versailles and the airports including Charles de Gaulle and Orly. The Paris Visite Travel Card for zones 1-5 is also valid for the Roissybus from Charles de Gaulle and the Orlyval (linking Orly Airport to the RER B).
If you do not need to travel into the suburbs or airports, choose a zones 1-3 Paris Visite Travel Card which will cover all of central Paris.
