3 – Paris Métro Tip 6

Don’t keep your Paris subway ticket in your wallet. The black strip on the ticket is magnetized: being in contact with coins may de-magnetize the ticket, and the machine at the métro entrance will refuse it.

If this happens to you, and you are at an entrance with a clerc, cut the line (how French) and just hand your ticket to the clerc… You don’t really need to say anything, since this happens a lot, the clerc will simply hand you another ticket… Just in case, say something like: “excusez-moi, mais mon ticket ne marche pas” (sorry, but my ticket doesn’t work).
