Discount for OAPs8 Replies
How easy is it for non-french nationals to get discounted rates for pensioners? I am over 65 but was refused a cheaper rate at the local swimming pool on the grounds that I had no official french documentation with me. In a way it was flattering to be assumed to be less than the official French retirement age especially as the workers seem to be striking because they want to keep retirement before the age of 62. On the other hand is this another case of french bureaucracy gone mad? What about travelling on French railways or buses trams etc. Is a French Senior citizens railcard or similar the only way of getting reduced rates for elderly people?
