Which ticket(s) do I need?

By | October 25, 2016 | in

I need some assistance in determining which tickets I need to purchase for a short, upcoming Paris trip:

  • I will be arriving at CDG on a Sunday morning and have a hotel near the Wagram Metro stop.
  • I will be leaving Tuesday morning to head back to CDG to catch my flight out.
  • I really just need Zones 1-2 on Sunday and Monday during the day but would like to see Versailles one day, too.

I'm not certain which travelcard or tickets to get.  I read that a one-way RER ticket allows transfers to metro within 90 minutes.  If true, I could use that to get to my hotel.  If not, I could change from RER B to RER C at Notre Dame and then take RER C to Pereire which is close to my hotel, too.  Does a one-way RER cover a transfer to another RER if I don't exit the station?
I just need help determining which pass to get.
Two single tickets from CDG to Paris and back combined with a 2-day Metro pass?
One pass that covers ALL of my travel for Sun-Tue?
Thank you in advance.

One way RER tickets cover Metro as well for transfers.
To get to and from CDG - Wagram: RER Tickets x 2
For two days of travel within zones 1-2 in Paris, I'd recommend two Ticket Mobilis for each day.
The only pass that would cover everything you need would be Paris Visite 3 day 5 zone at ~52€ vs. ~34€ for Mobilis plus RER tickets.

For Versailles, get RER tickets x 2.  About 9€ in total.
