The Paris Pass

Convenient But Not a Bargain

We bought these passes ahead of time and picked them up at the only and somewhat obscure location in Paris. Here's the thing about this pass. If anything changes before you start using the pass, you will likely do better cost-wise by getting the individual elements as needed. Our flight to Paris was delayed 18 hours and because we had a six-day Paris Pass, we had to completely rearrange our remaining six days because this pass has to be used consecutively and we wanted to visit Giverny outside of Paris. So we ended up using the 6-day pass for 4 days. Second, if you have kids, you will not use the museum part of this pass more than once or twice a day. Kids, including teenagers don't have patience for more than a few hours at museums. When I added up cost of the things we planned to do against the cost of the Paris Pass, the Paris Pass came out cheaper. But we didn't have time to do all the things we had planned and neither will you. We took taxis occasionally and so will you. Any deviation from your planned 4 or 6 consecutive days in Paris will put you on the losing end. At the end of our short vacation, we ultimately had lost money. My conclusion therefore, based on our family-of-four experience, was that the Paris Pass is convenient to use (picking it up was a pain) but it is not cheap and is probably not going to save you money. I'm not saying don't get the Paris Pass, but it is not a bargain.
