Best pass

Hi Ben
Great website! What is best pass for me and my son (aged 9).
We are arriving at CDG on Sunday (lunchtime), wish to travel by public transport into Paris, do a number of tourist trips (just in Paris city area) on next few days and leave Wednesday afternoon back to airport? Priorities are price and simplicity. Thanks.

I would recommend the Navigo Easy, one for yourself and one for your son with the following tickets loaded:

  • Roissybus x2 (one to Paris, one for return to CDG)
  • carnet (booklet) of 10 single-use Ticket t+

This will cover your travel from CDG Roissypole (the bus terminal at CDG, close to T1/T3) to Opéra in central Paris (and back).  There are bus stops for Roissybus at the other terminals but I prefer to get on at the origin of the bus while it's stationary at the terminus.  It's more relaxed and you should be guaranteed a seat for the ride.
There's a small discount for putting the Roissybus tickets on a Navigo Easy, but there are no child fares.  Each ticket is 12€.
For the booklet/carnet of 10 Ticket t+ (good for Metro and RER in zone 1) there is a child discount for 9 & under, so be sure to ask for that for your son's card.
You can purchase the Navigo Easy card from the large ticket window inside the Roissypole building (serving T1/T3 ground transportation customers) close to the escalators down to the RER B trains.  The bus loop is nearby, just a minute walk outside.
If you end up needing more than 10 one-way rides inside Paris, you can top-up the Navigo Easy card with more Ticket t+ at any automated ticket machine at Metro/RER stations.  You can buy individual tickets or booklets of 10 to add to your card.
Have a great visit.
