How to get discounts in Paris
Since Paris is one of the most expensive cities in the world, getting to know which discounts in Paris you can get is very helpful. Even if I had collected much advice on what to do in Paris for free, and which are the low-budget alternatives to the most expensive activities, here is some advice on which other price reductions you can get in Paris.
Discounts in Paris
Take note of the price reductions in Paris that could really make your day!
Discounts for theater in Paris
Going to the theater in Paris is a unique experience. You can take advantage of discounts for theaters in Paris.
You can go to the Opera Garner theater or at the Opera Bastille paying 12 or 5 euros only if you are lucky enough to find a list-minute standing place at the Bastille.
Senior discounts in Paris
Always keep your ID with you! Proving your age, you can take advantage of many discounts for seniors in Paris. If you are a member of AARP, you can even get discounts on hotels, flights, and car rentals.
Students facilitation in Paris
Students in Paris can get lots of facilitation. I have collected most of them at Benefits for Under 26 in Paris. In Paris, students always pay less for sights, food, transportations, and most of the time also for accommodation. Always take with you your Student ID!
Free access and price reductions for museums in Paris
Museums in Paris always have free-access days or hours during the week. By collecting every updated information about hours and costs at the tourist office, you can plan your tour of Paris museums paying the lowest prices. If you don’t leave Paris on a Sunday, keep in mind that lots of museums in Paris are free on the first Sunday of the month! Plus, in many museums under 18 don’t pay.
More museum discounts
You can try to ask if it is possible to take advantage of museum tickets price reductions. That is because most museums under 18 enter for free, even if they don’t show the EU paperwork.
Another discount formula is to visit museums in tandem. That means that if you buy the ticket to the Musée d’Orsay, you can visit the Palais Garnier with a discounted ticket.
How to pay less in restaurants
If you pay attention enough, you can even spare some money on restaurants. When you order, remember that tap water is free and safe to drink. This will make you save lots of money since bottled water in France costs a lot. Also, if you order the set lunch menu, you will have a full meal spending just 10 or 20 euros!
