Navigo Easy—the pass for tourists and occasional transport users in the Paris region

Want to see Paris? Or perhaps you live in the region but only use public transport occasionally? Our Navigo Easy pass is for you. You can pay as you go, and it’s reloadable, so it can store single-use tickets.

Goodbye, paper tickets. Hello, Navigo Easy

For public transport users in and around Paris, paper tickets have been part of daily life for generations. They stick haphazardly to clothes after an unintended trip through the wash. They’re a favourite raw material for origami lovers. And occasionally, alas, they land in the bin without ever being used.

Now paper tickets are gradually making way for a greener option: digital T+ tickets loaded on the new Navigo Easy pass. It’s a great solution for tourists and occasional public transport users in the Paris region.

Contactless. Pay-as-you-go. Easy to top up

The contactless, pay-as-you-go Navigo Easy pass is reusable and transferable, and it can store a variety of tickets and passes:

  • single, full-fare T+ tickets
  • books of T+ tickets at full and discounted fares
  • short-term passes (the Navigo Jour day pass, the Navigo Jeunes Week-end for young people, and the Antipollution pass)
  • Orlybus and Roissybus tickets for Orly and Charles de Gaulle airports

The Navigo Easy pass costs only €2. You can buy it at any station in the Paris area, and it’s ready to use immediately.

Top up your pass at a ticket machine or with any of these apps: Île-de-France Mobilités and Bonjour RATP.

With Navigo Easy, a pack of 10 paperless T+ tickets costs €2 less than the paper version—so the pass pays for itself with your first purchase.

How it works

Can I lend my pass to someone else?

Yes. Your Navigo Easy pass is not in your name, so you can lend it to others when you’re not using it.

Can several people travel on the same card at the same time?

No. If you’re travelling with others, each passenger must have their own Navigo Easy pass and scan it when boarding.

How can I check the balance on my Navigo Easy card?

Choose from 4 different options:

  • place your pass on the reader on a vending machine
  • visit an RATP/SNCF Transilien ticket window and request a balance receipt
  • use the Île-de-France Mobilités app or the RATP app. Simply place your pass on the back of your mobile.
  • check the display on the reader when you scan your pass to board metro, RER, light rail or a bus

Can I store discount tickets on my card?

Yes. When you buy tickets, you can load discounted T+ ticket books on your pass. IMPORTANT: you cannot store full-fare and discounted T+ tickets on the same Navigo Easy pass at the same time.

Are there other alternatives to books of paper T+ tickets?

Yes. Choose the option that’s best for you.

If you live or work in the Paris region and use mass transit occasionally

Navigo Liberté + is for you. This product is a post-paid contract, stored on a Navigo pass issued in your name.

As you scan your pass for each journey, the fare is recorded, and the total for each month is debited automatically the following month.

If you don’t use your pass, you pay nothing! Total fares may not exceed €7.50 per day (excluding Orlybus and Roissybus), but if you travel more than usual, you can always add a monthly or weekly Navigo pass (all-zone pass only).

When you choose this contract, you get a special fare (lower than the T+ fare for paper tickets) from your very first journey.

If you travel regularly in the Paris region

Choose a weekly, monthly or annual Navigo pass to travel freely across the entire network.

You can also buy and store a ticket or buy and download another pass, right from your compatible smartphone. To choose this option, go to the Île-de-France Mobilités app or the RATP app.
