Generally speaking, Paris has you covered but there is more to be desired. You can definitely get around the city, tapping away with your virtual card app. Whilst you may not be able to impress your clients at any of the typically Parisian local bars and brasseries, the global coffee and restaurant chains are providing a consistently reliable experience for the frequent business traveler. Uber won`t fail you and you can confidently book a Eurostar train to your next destination.  

Go go Paris!

*Some excellent news to look forward to, after the time of filming, Paris said 'au revoir' to metro ticket, has planned to usher in contactless payment from fall 2019.

Next stop: Amsterdam!
