The Paris Visite Travelcard zones 1-5 gives you access to unlimited travel on all forms of public transport (Metro, RER – the fast metro that takes you out to the suburbs, Public transport buses, trams and even the Montmartre Funicular) within zones 1-5 in one simple ticket. By having your ticket in advance, you won’t waste any of your precious holiday time waiting in queues for the ticket machines at Gare du Nord or Charles de Gaulle and then being faced with a vast array of different types of tickets. With this ticket you can walk straight off the Eurostar at Gare du Nord, or a plane at Charles de Gaulle, and straight into the metro/RER system.
But which zones to buy? Most of the famous monuments and museums are within zones 1-3, however this ticket also covers Versailles , Disneyland, and Charles de Gaulle and Orly airports. We do also sell single journey tickets to the airports, Disneyland and Versailles, which you can use with a zones 1-3 travelcard, if you are intending to spend most of your time in central Paris (see our Paris Maps page to check the zones).
The Zones 1-5 Paris Travelcard is undated, so can be used at any time, and is activated the first time you use it. You can choose between 1, 2, 3, or 5 consecutive days, and the first day the ticket is activated is day 1 of the ticket, no matter at what time you start using it.
