You should know

Before you use the card, you need to write your name on the attached ID card, and attach a photo. Your Navigo Découverte card is only for your own personal use, and can't be used by anyone else.

Validate your Navigo card before each trip

If the station has turnstiles, place your Navigo card over the purple validator marks at the entrance to Transilien stations, RER and Metro stations, and when getting on buses and trams: that's all you have to do! If there are no turnstiles, validate your Navigo card at a validation point.
