Paris Navigo Pass Question

Jump to last reply

Would like to buy a Navigo pass, as we plan to use the bus and this would be very convenient. We DO NOT have a chip and PIN CC, which I understand is required to buy the starter pack for the Navigo. Are we SOL or is there any other way to buy the Navigo starter pack (don't want to pay shipping costs, that negates the savings) and then load it in Paris?

Someone suggested you can buy the Navigo starter at CDG with a regular CC. We are arriving on a Friday morning, can we do this and then wait to load Mon morning OR is there a better way?

Planning to purchase a carnet and a couple of RER tickets to Versailles to tide us over until the Navigo starts. Thanks!
