Tips and tricks: The best way to get around Paris

The Vélib '(A mix of "vélo" (bicycle) and "liberté" (freedom)) is really the best way to get around the capital whether you are alone, accompanied, with your family, during all seasons, provided you are at least 14 years old.

It is a practically free bicycle rent service offered by the city of Paris to reduce pollution and increase the pleasure of pedestrians and cyclists. The city of Paris offers 19,000 bicycles, 1,000 stations, and a network of more than 370km of bike lanes.

This article answers the main questions:
  • What are the rates?
  • Where can I pay for it?
  • Where are the stations?
  • Walk ideas and small tips

What are the rates?

Unless you prefer walking, you cannot find cheaper and there is a rate adapted to occasional residents.

Short-term tickets offer access to the Vélib's service for the day by the week and offer an unlimited number of journeys thanks to the first 30 free minutes.

  • Day ticket: 1.70€
  • Weekly ticket: 8.00€

After 30 minutes, the fare is as follows: 
  • 1st additional half-hour: + 1.00€
  • 2nd additional half-hour: + 2.00€
  • Each subsequent half-hour: + 4.00€

The sum is then withdrawn from your bank account upon the return of the Vélib'. This pricing allows you to park your bike in a station at the end of your journey.

A deposit of 150€ is requested upon the purchase of tickets and charged under the following conditions:

Theft of the bicycle with deterioration of the anti-theft or violence to the person:
  • 35€ subject to the production of a receipt for filing a complaint with a police station.
  • Disappearance of a bike under 48 hours: 75€
  • Disappearance of a bike under 7 days: 100€
  • Disappearance of a bike after and including 7 days: 150€
You must therefore check that your bike is correctly put back when you return it: A green light comes on and 2 beeps sound.

Where can I pay for it?

You can pay your tickets by credit card:
  • On the website www.velib.paris
  • From the existing Vélib' terminal in each station
A ticket number is communicated to you when purchasing at the terminal, or by email confirmation if bought on the web. This number is then requested for each station rental.

Where are the stations?

To reach your destination most effectively and locate the nearest station, you can use different downloadable apps that meet the following needs: 
  • Where is the nearest station to me?
  • How many bikes are available at that station?
We recommend downloading the app BikePredict which is very well-made.


Walk ideas and small tips

There are plenty of ideas for cycling. Here is one that will surely satisfy you: A small 6-kilometer trip on the banks, recently prohibited to cars. More than 6km for a journey of about 35 minutes. A real treat in fine weather. You can begin your journey at the Pont de l'Alma to go up to the quays of Austerlitz.
Good to know: the Vlib' is increasingly used by Parisians for their professional trips. Access to the service at the beginning and end of the day may be less easy:

Have a good ride! And be careful.

Nearest station to the Relais Montmartre: Near the Blanche metro station 250 meters from the hotel.
