Navigation Decouverte cards never expire; right? Wrong!

Jump to last reply

I have read many times on this and other Forums that the Navigo card will not expire, and can be reloaded indefinitely, even though it originally had a ten year expiration date. That is no longer correct, I found out today. When we arrived in Paris we placed our ten year+ cards on the reader on the ticket machine, and the screen told us to see an attendant.

The clerk in the ticket booth told us our cards were no longer reloadable, and we needed new ones. My wife, being more cautious than I had brought a new picture for the card, but I did not have one. The agent very kindly assembled our cards for us and even took the trouble to tear my picture from the old card and paste it on the new card. What service!

In truth, he did me a real favor, as I now have a photo on my card of a relitvely young and extremely handsome chap, rather than the shakey old fart I actually am now. ��
