Question: Can I buy them directly at the pickup location?
Answer: No, you must place your order online at JustRing first to be able to pickup your passes there. That's the only way to manage passes stocks and be ready for your visit with service efficiency in mind.
Question: How can I use the Paris metro pass for airport transfer?
Answer: Yes, BUT you must know that this is not convenient at all if you have a lot of luggage: We've seen people stuck in the metro because they could not get their luggage through turnstiles. You may wish to take Paris shuttle instead and order 1 to 3 zones passes.
Question: Are Versailles castle, the airports, and Disneyland included in 5 zone passes?
Answer: Absolutely, all these destinations are located within the 5 zone area.
Question: What if I only need to get to Versailles during my stay?

Answer: First, reduce stress and don't waste your time, most metro station employees do not speak English and a lot of stations do not have any staff but machines that do not sell those passes. Second, the passes are available for you at the pickup location close to the Eiffel tower. Third, you get unlimited free access to French lessons and discounts at some venues (see details below), voila!
