Activation of your Paris Pass
Your Paris Pass is activated the first time that you use it, but to begin using it you must first sign and date the Paris Pass, Paris Museums and Monuments Pass and the Paris Visite Travelcard.
In addition you must write the serial number of the Paris Visite Travelcard on the ticket that is passed through the ticket machine. The card and ticket must be kept together at all times and both must be shown in the case of inspection.
Validity of your Paris Pass
After activation your Paris Pass remains valid for the duration that you have purchased. It is valid on consecutive days and at the end of the validity period, will no longer entitle you to free entry at attractions or transport. If for example, you used a four day pass for the first time on Monday, your pass will cease working at the end of Thursday, regardless of how often you have used it in between. It is important to note that a ‘day’ is based on a calendar day, so should you use your pass at 4pm on Monday, Monday is counted as day one of your pass usage.
The Paris Museum Pass part of your package can be used for multiple entries to the attractions which are part of that for the duration of your pass. The attractions included in the Paris Attractions Pass may be visited only once.
State Museums in Paris are free to visitors from EU countries under the age of 26. Visitors claiming free entry in this manner will need to queue for a ticket and have ID to prove their age and nationality. Remember: Paris Pass holders get the luxury of leap-frogging the queues!
The Paris Pass does not permit access to temporary exhibitions or guided visits.
