Sécurité sociale étudiante

Sécurité sociale étudiante – La réforme

La réforme du régime étudiant pour l’assurance santé – l’étudiant étranger

Annoncé en Octobre 2017 et inscrit dans la loi orientation et réussite des étudiants du 8 mars 2018, le plan étudiants va réformer profondément la sécurité sociale étudiante. La sécurité sociale étudiante a été supprimée et le passage de l’ensemble de la population étudiante au régime général de la Sécurité sociale se fera progressivement.

En attendant, voici comment vos étudiants étrangers seront impactés.

1 / Tous les étudiants étrangers restant plus de 3 mois en France sont éligibles à la sécurité sociale.

Les étudiants déjà inscrits à un régime étudiant reste affiliés jusqu’en Sept 2019, puis seront automatiquement transférés au Régime Général.

Les nouveaux étudiants devront s’inscrire sur le site suivant à partir du 1er Sept 2018 : étudiant-etranger-ameli.fr

Ce site existe également en anglais : foreign-student.ameli.fr

Concernant les étudiants français, ils restent dans leur régime actuel (souvent celui des parents).

Les écoles affiliées à la sécurité sociale n’ont plus l’opportunité de les inscrire sur la plateforme LMDE par exemple. Ces centres ne s’occupent plus de la sécurité sociale.

L’inscription est obligatoire pour tous les étudiants allant dans une école qui porte la mention « d’établissement supérieur » et sera demandée lors du renouvellement du VISA.

Il leur faudra créer un profil sur le site et une adresse en France leur sera demandée.

Ils devront ensuite télécharger des documents comme le certificat de naissance. Ces documents n’ont pas besoin d’être traduits en Français s’ils sont en anglais ou espagnol.

Ils pourront obtenir un numéro provisoire immédiatement, suite à leur inscription au régime général. Puis il faudra compter un délai d’environ 2 mois pour recevoir un numéro de sécu définitif (et autour de 6 mois pour ceux vivant dans le 93).

Feel Parisien les aide ensuite à créer leur compte sur Ameli.fr, à obtenir une carte vitale. Nous leur fournissons une liste de médecins généralistes et spécialistes parlant anglais et nous leur expliquons le choix et le fonctionnement du médecin traitant ainsi que la différence entre secteur 1 et 2 au niveau des tarifs et des remboursements.

Enfin, Feel Parisien en partenariat avec Kinousassur propose aux étudiants d’acheter une mutuelle. Cette mutuelle protège en Europe, à 100% de frais réels pour les consultations (avec un plafond de 50€ pour un généraliste et 75€ pour un spécialiste) et 200% dans les établissements conventionnés en hospitalisation.

Le tarif est de 30€/mois avec inclus un retour anticipé de l’étudiant dans son pays suite à un décès familiale et un billet A/R pour un proche en cas d’hospitalisation de l’étudiant en France. En cas de décès de l’étudiant, les frais funéraire sont remboursés dans la limite de 3000€ ainsi que le rapatriement du corps. Le taris inclus aussi une assurance responsabilité civile.

L’étudiant pourra souscrire à cette assurance, bientôt sur la plateforme, de un à 12 mois, renouvelable.

Cette mutuelle prendra effet le 1er Sept (dès lors que l’étudiant obtient un numéro de sécu temporaire) et marche en télétransmission pour que les étudiants n’aient rien à envoyer.

Si l’étudiant souhaite arriver avant Sept, il peut acheter une assurance privée à la semaine ou au mois. Exemple de tarifs :

1 semaine : 12€

1 mois : 25 €

3 mois : 66 €

2 / En parallèle,  l’étudiant devra obligatoirement s’acquitter de la CVEV à 90€ sur le site cvev.etudiant.gouv.fr à partir du 1er juillet jusqu’à fin mai 2019 au plus tard.

Cette charge est à payer tous les ans et concerne également les étudiants déjà en France. C’est à l’école de s’assurer du bon versement de cette somme et de demander les attestations pour finaliser l’inscription dans l’école.

2 cas de figure différents permettent de compléter cette démarche.

  • En payant la CVEC car vous y êtes assujetti·e. Son montant est fixé à 90€.
  • En étant exonéré·e de la CVEC. Dans ce cas, vous ne paierez rien (voir plus bas « Quels étudiants sont exonérés ? »).

Dans les deux cas, vous pourrez, à l’issue de la démarche, obtenir une attestation d’acquittement de la CVEC.

  • Vous devez fournir cette attestation à votre établissement d’enseignement supérieur.
  • Notez bien que votre établissement ne pourra pas finaliser votre inscription sans cette attestation.

La création de la CVEC s’accompagne de la disparition de la cotisation annuelle pour la sécurité sociale (217€ en moins) et la baisse de 21€ des droits d’inscription à l’université, et ce, dès la rentrée 2018.

« La CVEC est la Contribution de Vie Etudiante et de Campus. La loi prévoit qu’elle est collectée par les Crous.
D’un montant annuel de 90€, on peut y être asujetti·e ou en être exonéré·e en fonction des cas. » raconte le site cvev.etudiant.gouv

Les quatre types d’étudiants exonérés du paiement de cette contribution sont…

  • Les boursiers* ou bénéficiaires d’une allocation annuelle accordée dans le cadre des aides spécifiques annuelles
  • Les étudiants réfugiés
  • Les étudiants bénéficiaires de la protection subsidiaire
  • Les étudiants enregistrés en qualité de demandeurs d’asile et disposant du droit de se maintenir sur le territoire

Une précision sur les « boursiers »

  • Les bourses sur critères sociaux gérées par le Crous (Enseignement supérieur, Culture, Agriculture, …)
  • Les bourses versées par les régions (pour les étudiants dans des formations paramédicales, sanitaires et sociales)

En revanche, ne sont pas concernées…

  • Les bourses du gouvernement français (BGF)
  • Les bourses d’un gouvernement étranger (BGE)
  • Les bourses versées par une structure privée (par exemple, une fondation)

Cette contribution est « destinée à favoriser l’accueil et l’accompagnement social, sanitaire, culturel et sportif des étudiants et à conforter les actions de prévention et d’éducation à la santé réalisées à leur intention » (article L. 841-5 du code de l’éducation).

OFII VISA

The OFII VISA : what is it ?

OFII VISA

What is an OFII Visa? OFII stands for Office Français de l’Immigration et de l’Intégration . (French Office of Immigration and Integration). Once you step foot in France with a student visa, you must complete with this French governmental body in order to convert your visa into a student residence permit. Getting the OFII stamp in your passport within the first three months of your arrival in France is mandatory. If not, you will no longer have the right to travel and come back to France.

Getting your OFII VISA in France

If you are a non EU resident, having a VISA for your study in France is a very stressful point. You absolutely need a VISA to come to study in France. To get this VISA, you might need complimentary documents as proof of payment from your school or proof of accommodation. These documents are required for a lot of countries to get the VISA.

Acceptation of your VISA is great but it’s only the first Big step. That’s why Feel Parisien is here to help you with all the other steps of getting settled in Paris (getting an accommodation in Paris, getting a bank in Paris, getting your OFII VISA etc) and let you fully enjoy your stay in France !

You just arrived in France, here is how to do your OFII VISA

Once in France, you will have to send by post the OFII VISA form filled in, to the OFII office of your department, with the copy of your passport (identity), the page of the VISA and the entry stamp.

If you leave in Paris and apply to the OFII VISA between the 10st of Sept to 23th of Nov, you have to submit your file to the Cité Universitaire, without appointment needed.

Then, you will receive a letter from the Office Français de l’Immigration et de l’Intégration, called shortly OFII.

They will call you for an appointment for a welcome visit. Don’t miss that appointment, otherwise you will have to wait a few weeks or months more to get an other appointment. Meanwhile, your OFII VISA is still not confirmed.

At the appointment, you will have to bring with you :
– the convocation letter
– your passport
– a proof of your french address
– an ID picture
– a €60 stamp to be bought on tobacco shops or online : https://www.timbresofii.fr/pages/information.jsp

Finally, you will receive a yellow sticker in your passport to validate your visa. This sticker serves as your first “titre de séjour,” and you are, for good, considered a legal student resident in France.

I really hope you have a clearer view now about what is OFII and the OFII VISA and if you want to benefit from assistance during the totality of this process, don’t hesitate to buy a pack for more tranquility. Feel Parisien will send your OFII VISA documentations for you. Mostly, Feel Parisien will be here to assist you in each step. Feel Parisien will call the OFII VISA Center for you and translate for you the letters you’ll receive if they are in French.

Feel Parisien help international students to get establish in France by facilitating all their administrative tasks. For more information on our pack or how we can help you through our services just shoot us an email.

More details about your accommodation options

Student accommodations in Paris

If you’re still hesitating about your accommodation, here are some information about the different kinds of accommodations I offer  :

Host family 

A laundry, the cleaning of your room, of the sheets and the towels are done for you once a week.

The good points are : 
– short terme accepted, you can book from one week length
– you can benefit from diners with the family if you wish
– you practice your french
– everything is included in the price (breakfast as minimum, electricity, internet). However, you have to subscribe to a home insurance which is required in France.
– you don’t need a deposit or a guarantor
– the agency fees are included in the price
– you have different formula (private bathroom, number of diners…)

The bad points are : 
– you normally have access to the kitchen only the evening (hot plate or microwaves only). To be determinate with the family.
– the price is quite expensive : min €1000/month with the breakfast formula and a private bedroom

Student residence 

There is a paying laundry in each residence. Internet is included. You have to pay for your own electricity consumption.

The good points are :  
– you live with others international or french students
– you benefit from the presence of a manager in the residence who has his office in case of questions or trouble

– pets & friends accepted
– international guarantor accepted

The bad points are : 

– you have to stay minimum 6 months
– you have to pay from August otherwise the residences are full
– if you don’t have an international or French guarantor, you have to pay 6 months in advance

Shared flat  

Depends on the flat, but sometimes you have to share the electricity bills with the others roommates.
In general there is a washing machine in the flat.

The good points are : 
– the flat is bigger than a studio you rent by your own
– you live with others young people, french or foreigners
– you pay less than a studio by your own
– you have your own lease
– if you don’t have a guarantor you only need to pay 2 months in advance
– home insurance and Internet are included

The bad points are : 
– you generally have to stay at least 6 months
– you can’t book your room a few months in advance (the room are is general available immediately and pay from the day you book it).

Furnished flat 

In general Internet is included. Electricity is not but you don’t have to open an account, only to pay the bills to the owner. Sometimes a washing machine is available in the flat. You also have to subscribe to a home insurance by your own.

The good points are :
– you can book your flat a few months in advance and start paying only from your arrival date.
– you have a lot of choice on the website of my partners Paris Attitude and a lot of pictures per room.
– in general it’s possible to create your own shared flat and share it with friends
– your contract is in English
– Paris Attitude website is in English

The bad points are :
– the minimum price is around €750/month for a studio
– if you want to visit the flats, you have to do a selection and visit your top one or two favorite flats
– the flats don’t have the exclusivity with Paris Attitude so some of them are available on the website but they actually are not. Therefore, you have to select several flats to have one available.
– the process of booking is a bit long (a few days) because we have to wait for the confirmation of the owner.

  • All our accommodations are acceptable for the CAF (financial aid from the french government which reduce your rent up to 20%).
  • All my partners accept foreigner guarantors (which is not the case with a basic french real estate).

I hope you can see clearly your options now and take the best decision for you.

PS : a lot of countries ask for a proof of at least 3 months of accommodation to apply for the VISA so don’t waste time and book a flat right now with us by filling in this form.

The real cost of living in Paris

I’m always sadly surprised when I’m receiving requests for an accommodation in Paris with a maximum budget of €250-€500/month.

I totally understand in others countries this can be a huge budget and the cost of life is different, but this rent doesn’t almost exist in Paris.

Especially for an international student who can’t spend hours on hundreds of French websites looking for THE great opportunity, who won’t be in Paris to do the visit and who don’t have a french guarantor be selected among many others candidates.

A regular budget in Paris is around €700-800 for a studio of 15 sqm or a room of 10 sqm in a shared flat ! That’s the reality.

And this rent doesn’t include the agency fees, the security deposit and the fact you have to pay for a few rents in advance if you don’t have a guarantor.

So when I’m receiving these requests with low budgets I’m wondering to myself : “How will they do ? “

Apparently, they have already made the choice to come to study in Paris. They have been accepted to a school so they probably thinking about it since a long time now. But they didn’t realize or get informed about the cost of life in Paris.

They will have to double their budget for a rent and realize how expensive this city is, once in Paris. This make me feel bad so, as a professional in this field, I’m writing this article for you to be aware BEFORE making a choice. I hope you will have the chance to not be sadly surprised when you will look for a flat and be informed of the prices.

Studying in Paris is a dream for international people, it’s a beautiful culture and city but it’s unfortunately also expensive.

I’m not just talking about the rents, but the movies (around €8,50 for a student and €12 regular price), the cool restaurants for diner (around €30 with a drink), the cool bars to have a drink (around €8 a cocktail).

The life is Paris is very active and, as in every capitals in Europe, youngs people go to restaurants and bars often.

So if we do the math of the cost of the life in Paris for a month :

  • Rent : €750
  • Electricity without heating (if not included in the rent) : €20/month (add €30/month for heating if not included in the rent)
  • Food : €200/month
  • Transport : €27 (Imagine R card)
  • Phone credit : €16
  • 5 lunchs outside your apartment : €200
  • One diner at the restaurant per week : €120
  • Two drinks per week : €64
  • One movie per month : €8,50

We will imagine you won’t be sick and won’t do shopping :)

The Internet is normally included in the rent.

The total for a month is €1 405.

Keep in mind you can have a financial aid from the French government up to 20% discount to reduce your rent.

Of course, you can reduce that costs if you enjoy less but that’s not the point of spending a year study abroad in Paris.

You also can choose another city in France where the cost can be easily split in 2.

Find here tips to reduce your living costs in Paris. But keep in mind the real cost of living in Paris and think well before applying for a school.

Paris for study abroad it’s a very nice choice and will open your mind but if you have to work every time or not going out because you dont have the budget or living in a faraway suburbs, it would be better to choose another cheaper city or country to fully enjoy your stay of study abroad.

I hope this article helped you to be fully aware of what is expecting you in Paris. I’m here to answer to all your questions about your future stay in Paris so don’t hesitate to send me a message.

I really hope you will be able to come to study in the most beautiful city in the world, without the pain of the costs.

If you made the choice of coming in Paris, contact me for having flats offers and others services for you installation (french bank account, SIM card, help for CAF and VISA…).

6 benefits from choosing Feel Parisien

Studying in Paris with the help of Feel Parisien

1/ ACCOMMODATION IN PARIS

Accommodation has to be booked in advance because of the shortage of it, which happens at the beginning of each new school year. Students live a real nightmare from their first day in Paris, realising that the demand outstrips supply and, therefore, they have to fight for a small studio, too expensive. But booking in advance can also be difficult without knowing where to ask and who to trust when you’re not in the country.

That’s why Feel Parisien is THE solution. We have partners specialised in hosting international students and a wide range of different accommodation for all the requests: studio, student residences, host families…We will send you offers according to your request and we will book your accommodation in advance, before everything is gone.

The biggest mistake a student can make is to wait for the new school year to arrive in Paris and start visiting flats, thinking that he will choose the best one. There won’t be anything left, believe me!

2/ A BANK

Feel Parisien opens in advance a bank account for the student and gives him a RIB (Bank Details). He can transfer money when he’s still in his country.

When he arrives in Paris, an appointment has been already booked with the closest bank from his flat or school. He takes his credit or debit card (VISA or Mastercard). A cheque book can be offered on demand.

3/ THE CHEAPEST PHONE SUBSCRIPTION

International students don’t know what the main phone operators’ names are and the standard prices of subscriptions. And even if we tell them the names such as “Orange”, “SFR” or “Bouygues Telecom”, all the websites are in French. It is better to understand what we are buying before to put our credit card number into the e-commerce website!

Feel Parisien offers the best price of the market (unlimited calls and text messages + 5 GO of Internet 4G for €15.99/month) and let the student choose the network he wants: SFR, Orange or Bouygues.

4/ A FOREIGNER CAN’T APPLY FOR THE CAF WITHOUT HELP

Just looking at the list of the required documents to apply for it, make us want to quit. So imagine if you don’t speak French!

The CAF says “We are in France, we only have information and forms in French”. Yes, but international students are allowed to get this rental assistance and no law forces them to speak French when they come to study in France… Arg French administration!

Therefore, Feel Parisien offers, the first days of your arrival, a personal human help to create an account and apply for it on the Internet. We have to admit it: when we look at the price of the rents, we gladly accept the little financial help to reduce it!

5/ INDIVIDUAL SUPPORT

Paris is an amazing city, France is a beautiful country and Europe is a huge continent. To fully enjoy everything, to know what it should be known, and not to miss out what it should be seen, you should be advised by a “godmother” who will make your stay unforgettable.

6/ ONLY ONE AGENCY FOR EVERYTHING

Feel Parisien has various partners to ensure a service of quality.
But students have only one contact for everything: Feel Parisien.
That’s why Feel Parisien is THE quick and easy solution to your arrival and stay in Paris.

7 SECRETS FOR SAVING MONEY IN PARIS

COST OF LIVING IN PARIS : 7 SECRETS FOR SAVING 

The cost of living in Paris can be high especially for students. But Paris is also a city of culture, parties and fashion.

So here’s how to reduce the cost of living in Paris and to enjoy everything the capital has offers even on a student budget!

1. Groupon

I was used to use it A LOT when I was a student. Well-being, restaurants, activities, shopping… There’s loads of services and products with huge discounts. A massage for €30, a spa for €15 or 10 dancing classes for €20…

The process ? You pay by credit card on the website and receive a confirmation by email. If it’s a voucher for a service you print it, if it’s a product it will be delivered to your door. With this website your cost of living in Paris will strongly reduce.

Advice

If you want to buy a service, call the branch before to make sure they have availability that suits you. Sometimes, there is a calendar that shows the availability on the website.

According to the French law, you can cancel the deal until 14 days after its purchase.

2. La Fourchette

Food is amazing in Paris…the best one in the world ! La Fourchette is a specialized website to save money on restaurants.

Advice

Be sure to read all the terms and conditions regarding the discount before making a reservation (eg: not including drinks, only if you order a starter + main course or dessert + main course).

3. Heetch

With Heetch, reduce your cost of living in Paris on your night out. Cheaper than a cab, this application puts you in touch with individual drivers. Available only during the night, from 8pm to 6am, a driver comes to pick you up at an address and drive you to your destination. You pay by credit card through the app (enter your credit card number just once at the first use) or by cash. Before you pay, you are informed about the price and the waiting time.

Get €5 free on your first travel with the promo code : PERLE185614

4. Uber

Cheaper than a cab but more expensive than Heetch, this app works 24/7 and the driver is not an individual but a licensed professional. You only can pay by credit card through the app (you enter your credit card number just once at the first use). Before you pay, you are informed about the price and the waiting time.

Advice

The cheapest option is the option UberPool but, like Heetch, it works only the night from 8pm to 6am and the number of people is limited to 2. The driver has the right to stop to pick up other people.

If you are between 4 and 7 people you can order a UberVan. Don’t hesitate to share the price of the trip with other friends who also have the Uber app, through an option available on screen.

Get €20 free on your first travel with the promo code : m9vf2547ue

5. Vente Privée/Bazar Chic/Showroomprivé : buy online

These are my favourite applications/websites offering big discounts up to 70% off high quality brands. Save money on EVERYTHING (food, hygiene product, electronic product, clothes…).

Specialized in clothes, but they also offer a lot of more. Dress like a parisian at an affordable price and reduce your cost of living in Paris !

Moreover, my friend has created The Cut with nice prices if you want a hairdresser to come to your place to do brushing, styling, cut or color. You can plan a day between friends as well and ask for several hairdressers to come for you. Benefit from 5% thanks to the Feel Parisien code. Write your phone number and email address on the home page below “Je réserve”, she will call you back and she speaks English.

This is the new tendency in Paris ! Be beautiful and well dressed without moving from your cozy little flat.

6. Vestiaire Collective

Only for clothes and accessories, Vestiaire Collective puts you in touch with individuals who sell items from famous brands.

7. Orange Cineday

Another way to reduce your cost of living in Paris is on your movie’s tickets. The French mobile phone operator “Orange”. Buy one ticket and get one for free every Tuesday.

How it works ? If you have this operator, send a text message with the word « cine » to the number 20 000. You will receive the code to give to the desk at the cinema to get your discount.

What to know

If you don’t have Orange, ask a friend who’s not using  to give you his promo code (valuable only once each Tuesday). The offer can also be combined with the reduced prices for students.

8. ISIC

There is a website dedicated to all the students at an international level. ISIC card proof your student status worldwide, help you to enjoy over 45 000 ISIC dicounts int the whole world and join a community of 5 millions students.

How it works ? If you have this card, you can wonder around the website and see all the student discount you are entitled to.

9 WAYS TO TRAVEL IN PARIS

PARIS TRANSPORT : 9 WAYS TO TRAVEL

transportsParis transport system includes the Metro underground subway system, a tramway, buses and night bus (Noctilien), Velib bikes and Autolib cars. The RER regional train service and SNCF trains extend to the suburbs and the Ile de France. You also can own a car or a bike in Paris.

The best app to get around Paris and in English is CityMapper. Very user friendly and will always give you the best options according to your needs (no walking, fastest way…)

1. Subway and Bus

These are the most practical public Paris transport. There are a lot of lines going everywhere. You just need to understand how it works and to be ready to see people not smiling :)

When it’s crowded, please try to anticipate your way out by standing close to the door one station before your destination.

In the metro, make sure you know which side to leave the train. The doors open on the right or left, according to the station.

Make sure the bus you’re waiting for goes in the direction you need. Often, there often are two bus stations, on each side of the road, going in opposite direction.

Download the RATP mobile application or ask a map at an information office in the metro. It’s small and free, and you have the metro, RER and bus lines.

Prices:

– One ticket : 1,90€

– A pack of 10 tickets: 14,90€

-Ticket for week end only, under 26, valid during 14h only (from midnight to midnight) : 4,10€ (zone 1,2,3)

– One day ticket « mobilis » (zones 1-2) : 7, 5€

Please make sure to write your name, surname and the date, the day you use it, on the ticket.

– A weekly « navigo » pass (all zones) : 22,80€€

– A monthly « navigo » pass (all zones) : 75,20€

– A yearly “ImagineR” card (only for students & under 26): 350€ (all zones) – 38€/month during 9 months + 8€ extra fees for the first month for administration fees (card valid during one year). You will be automatically debited on your French bank account each 5th of the month (during 9 months). First debit happens the 5th of October for Sept and Oct at the same time = 38€x2 + 8€ = 84€

All available with buses, RER and metro.
You will have to go to one of these metro stations. You will have to bring :
passport
proof of address
You need to go in person to ask it and put your ID photo on it, they refuse to do in on a behalf on someone.

With an ImagineR card you can have your money back if you don’t spend a full year in Paris. During the weekend and the public holidays, you’re not limited to your zones; you can travel everywhere on the network.

To order your card ask a form at any information office in the metro. Send your form ASAP because the card takes minimum 3 weeks to be received. More information on www.imagine-r.com

2. RER

The RER is another way to travel through the Paris transport. Is faster than the metro but there are less trains : one every 10 minutes approximatively. Be aware that the train doesn’t stop at every station. If your train is on the platform when you arrive, don’t rush yourself to get in, make sure first it stops at your station otherwise you could be wasting a lot of time.

3. Velib’

A nice Paris transport is the self service bikes rental, across the all city.

What to know

You can change bike every 30 minutes to not pay the rental cost.

A deposit of €150 will be asked to pick up a bike and will be blocked on your account but not spent.

Cycle safely because Paris is a big and crowded city. Use the various special cycling paths.

You can find further information on www.velib.paris.fr
  The website is available in Spanish and English.

4. Electric “Trottinette”

This is probably the coolest way to travel. I couldn’t find a world to translate what is a Trottinette :) Have a look on google ! Download the apps Lime or Bird. Enter your credit card number. Each time you see a Trottinette on the street that you also can located with the map on your apps, you just have to scan the bar code and it’s unblocked. When you want to stop juste drop it off on the street click on “vérrouiller” on your app to finish the course and take a picture of where you have put the Trottinette.

Prices:

Around 2,8€ for 15 min

Promo code : RYJNWRP

limelime-trottinette-libre-service-Paris-683x297

5. Uber/Heetch

Others Paris transport : VTC. Cheaper than a taxi, download the free mobile applications Uber (professional) or Heetch (individual) to get a safe transport, especially at night after drinking or when there are no more metros. Save your credit card number on both. With Uber, you’ll never have to pay cash as the trip will be automatically paid with your credit card you registered with. Make sure the driver hits “End of the trip” (“Fin de la course” in French) before you get off. The same works with Heetch, except that if you prefer to pay cash, you can. Before the purchase, an indication of the estimated price and the waiting time is announced.

Uber : Get €20 free on your first travel with the promo code : m9vf2547ue

Heetch : Get €5 free on your first travel with the promo code : PERLE185614

 

6. Buy a second hand bike

Prices:

From €40 to €200, for a high quality model.

You can find an occasion bike in a sales depot, in any cycling professional, through the ads on the Internet for individuals, or at a “bourse aux vélos” (sells for bikes).

7. Les bus Noctilien

During the week, Paris transport stops around 00.40am / 1am, for the metro, depending on different lines (1.40am / 2am the Fridays, Saturdays and public holidays eve) and at 1am for the RER.

Between 0.30am and 5.30am, 47 lines of Noctilien buses run across Paris and its suburb. The bus network goes around all most famous districts: Châtelet, Montparnasse, Gare de l’Est, Gare Saint Lazare and Gare de Lyon.
The bus usually arrives every 10 minutes, but can take up to one hour, depending on the line and the day.

More Information on 
www.noctilien.fr

8. SNCF

To travel to other cities in France, a great option is to take the train.

Prices :

Discount for young people aged 12-25. To enjoy this discount (from 25 to 50% per ticket), you need a card “Carte Jeune” which costs €50/year.

More info on www.12-25-sncf.com/accueil

Discounts for everyone:

The low-cost tickets “Prem’s”, offer a discount, especially if you are a small group to travel: http://www.voyages-sncf.com/promotion-train/tgv-prems

The last minute tickets: http://www.voyages-sncf.com/promotion-train/multi/derniere-minute-intercites

9. Car

If your favorite Paris transport is your car, it has to be in your name and you need a required insurance to enjoy the residence parking price (€1,5/day) in your district. We can help you to get your residential card with our individual support service.

To park outside your district (your district zone is defined by La Mairie who give you a map), you need to pay for a visitor ticket, from €2,4 to 4/h, from Monday to Saturday (except bank holiday). A ticket has to be renewed every 2 hours but thanks to the app “PMobile” you can pay it directly through your smartphone without going to a parking meter.

What to know

If a parking space says “Livraison”, it means it is a parking space for deliveries. However if it has one continuous line, or one discontinuous line, you’re allowed to park from 8pm to 7am every day, and all day on Sundays and bank holidays. If it has two continuous lines, you aren’t allowed to park.

Advice

The police are very strict about parking; you must not park your car in any parking spot that isn’t allowed. If you do, you may get a penalty fare, or worse, get your car taken to the pound. If you find complicated parking around your home, maybe consider renting a private parking space.
