See Paris for free
It's been a bit hard to escape the credit crunch this year, everyone's been affected by it and one of the things that has had to be put on the backburner is, quite rightly, travel plans. It's hardly an essential (although sometimes it feels like it has to be done) but now there's good news on the horizon for people who love to jet set, particularly for those who have rooms booked in hostels in Paris.

Apparently, a card called the Paris Pass has been launched that offers those who buy it the chance to gad about the city cheaply, while taking in all the major sights. People who opt for this most helpful scheme will get free entry to some of the best attractions that Paris has to offer, like the Tour Montparnasse, the Musee Grevin and a river cruise down the Seine.

What's more, you'll get a complementary guidebook (that comes in three different languages) and free public transport, which any seasoned traveller knows is a bit of a spoiling. You'll also be able to do a bit of queue jumping if you have the Paris Pass with you and can skip out on all the waiting time at places like Notre Dame Cathedral, the Palace of Versailles and the Centre Pompidou.

Bear in mind, however, that, while you can take in as many of the interesting things to see and do in Paris with your card, you can only visit each attraction once every day, although you can of course come back again tomorrow.
