You can buy a ticket on the website of Velib, 15 days before your stay. There are tickets lasting a day or a week. You need one ticket per person. Buying tickets online lets you save time when getting your Vélib' bike. After paying online, you will be sent an access code by email, which you will need to identify yourself at the station.
Or you can buy your ticket on the day at the Vélib' station.
The first 30 minutes of each journey are free. After 30 minutes, you will have to pay the usage charges: €1 for the first additional half-hour, €2 for the next half-hour, and €4 for each half-hour after that.
