The Paris Visite Pass or a ‘carnet' of t+ tickets : which product is the best choice?
If you are only thinking of using public transport occasionally (less than 4-5 times per day) and only in Paris, it is more interesting to opt for the ‘carnet’ of 10 t+ tickets.
If you are planning to use public transport on a regular basis in Paris only, it will be more interesting for you to purchase a Paris Visite Pass zones 1-3.
Finally, if you wish to use public transport on a regular basis in Paris and also in the inner suburbs (e.g. to go to Versailles, Disneyland or even the airports, we suggest that you purchase a Paris Visite Pass zones 1-5.

Can I use the Orlyval, OrlyBus and the RoissyBus with the Paris Visite Pass?
The airports of Orly and CDG are situated in zones 4 and 5; you will not therefore be able to use them to get to the airports with the Paris Visite Pass zones 1-3.
Only the Paris Visite Pass zones 1-5 enables you to use the Orlyval, the Orlybus, the Roissybus and the RER B.
Does the t+ ticket allow me to travel on the RER beyond Paris?
The t+ ticket enables you to travel on all of the metro and bus lines in the Paris region of Ile-de-France (except Orlybus and Roissybus) and tramways, the Montmartre funicular, and the RER only in Paris (zone 1).
For any other journey outside Paris, you need to purchase an ‘Origine-Destination' (point-to-point) ticket. This is an Ile-de-France ticket, whose price is calculated from the station of departure to the station of arrival.
Can I receive my travel tickets by email?
No, all Paris travel tickets are materialized, therefore, it is not possible to receive them electronically.
What do I do if my transport ticket becomes demagnetised?
If you have any difficulty using your ticket due to a malfunction, please bring this to the attention of RATP staff in metro stations or RER stations, who will replace it free of charge.
