Navigo Youth Weekend Day Pass – Jeunes Week-end

By | July 7, 2024 | in Passes

What is a Navigo Youth Weekend Day Pass / Navigo Jeunes Week-end?

For tourists/visitors & residents 25 years old or younger a Navigo Youth Weekend Day Pass / Navigo Jeunes Week-end is an unlimited-ride, ONE-DAY pass usable ONLY on a Saturday, a Sunday or a French national holiday, costing 4.70€ for 1-3 zones or 10.35€ for 1-5 zones PER DAY, put onto a Navigo Easy card (2€) or Navigo Découverte card (5€) or Paris Transport mobile phone app (free).  There is no paper ticket version of Jeunes Week-end pass any longer.

Let me emphasize that this is not a “full weekend pass” usable as a single fare for both weekend days of Saturday and Sunday: IT IS NOT.  This is a single-day pass for either a Saturday OR a Sunday (or a national holiday such as July 14).  You can buy &  load (up to) two (2) Navigo Jeunes Week-end passes onto a single Navigo card to cover both Saturday and Sunday though.

Where Can I buy a Navigo Youth Weekend Day Pass?

Any Paris Metro, RER, Transilien station ticket window can sell you a physical Navigo Easy card (or Navigo Découverte card) with up to two youth weekend passes loaded with your desired zone coverage.

Some (few?) newer automated ticket machines can also sell physical Navigo Easy cards, pre-loaded with fares, possibly including a Navigo Youth Weekend Day Pass.  (See the Navigo Easy page for a photo of the new automated ticket machine dispensing physical Navigo Easy cards.)  I say “possibly” as there are anecdotes that some automated ticket machines that dispense Navigo Easy cards, sell the card preloaded with only three options: Ticket t+ full fare, Ticket t+ reduced fare, “regular” Navigo Day Passes; the Navigo Jeunes Week-end is apparently missing as an option to load on a newly dispensed Navigo Easy card. (Or perhaps this option isn’t shown in non-French languages of the ticket machine?  I’m not sure.)  I have not confirmed this myself.  Just beware that you may be forced to buy a new Navigo Easy card loaded with a single Ticket t+, then make a second transaction, loading your Navigo Easy with the Jeunes Week-end / Youth Weekend Day Pass.

Finally, you can buy/use your Navigo Weekend Day pass directly from your Android phone / Apple iPhone using either of the Paris Transport mobile phone apps.  This fare is not yet available in Google Wallet nor Apple Wallet as of July 2024.

How much does a Navigo Youth Weekend Day Pass Cost?

The Navigo Jeunes Week-end / Day Pass comes in 2* different zone coverages (see Paris transport zone map), each at a different price.

Navigo Jeunes Week-end Prices, per-day
Ages 4 – 25
Zones Coverage Price
1 – 3 Central Paris, La Défense, Stade de France, Roland Garros (see zones) 4.70€
1 – 5 Paris + Versailles + ORY + Disney + CDG 10.35€
*There is a 3rd zone of coverage between zones 3-5 that I’m ignoring as it is useless for 99.5% of visitors. It costs 6.05€ for this coverage which excludes central Paris.

When Can I Buy a Navigo Jeunes Week-end pass?

You can buy a Navigo Youth Weekend Day Pass/Jeunes Week-end up to 6 days in advance of its active day.  You must choose the day when the pass is active.  You can choose only a weekend day or a holiday. For example, to use a Navigo Weekend Day Pass on a Saturday, you can buy it as early as Monday but no earlier, and as late as 23:59 Saturday evening (and use it for a total of one minute on Metro, RER, Bus, Tram before it expires, although night buses are different, see below).  So you can buy a Youth Weekend Day pass on a Friday evening at 23:30 (11:30pm), select Saturday as its day of validity and begin using the pass in 30 minutes at midnight 00:00 / wee-hours of Saturday morning up until midnight, 24 hours later.

How Long is a Navigo Youth Weekend Day Pass valid?

The Youth Weekend Day Pass is valid from 00:00:01 the day of its chosen validity, up to 23:59:59 (i.e. midnight) for Paris Metro, RER, Buses, Trams, Funiculaire de Montmartre.  For Paris Night buses, the youth weekend pass is valid until 05:59 the next morning.  So if your validity day is Saturday, you can ride night buses using the weekend day pass up until 6am Sunday morning.

Do I need photo ID to use Navigo Youth Weekend Day Pass?

You need some form of identification to prove you are under 26 years of age in order to rightfully use a Navigo Weekend Day Pass if you are stopped by a controllor and asked to present ID.  Normally this would be a passport.


Can I put Ticket t+ / Paris Metro tickets onto Navigo Easy card with a Navigo Youth Weekend Pass?

Yes, you can load both regular Paris Metro tickets (Ticket t+) onto a Navigo Easy card while also having a Navigo Youth Weekend Pass / Jeunes Week-end loaded onto the Navigo card.  On the active day of the Navigo Jeunes Week-end on a Saturday / Sunday / holiday, the pass will be used first before individual Paris Metro / Ticket t+ tickets are used.  On other days, the single-use tickets will be used instead.

See the Navigo Easy page for more details on which fares (and which quantities) can be loaded onto a Navigo Easy card at the same time.
