Tips for Planning an Incentive Trip to Paris

A company’s success is very important, but it’s not possible without its employees. After and during busy seasons, employees sometimes feel stressed and overwhelmed, but there are many opportunities to keep them motivated. With an incentive trip, employees will work hard to earn it. Here are some things to consider as you start thinking about your company’s incentive trip to Paris.

Accommodation

All arrondissements, the neighborhoods in Paris, have many things to offer to visitors and each one is accessible to every corner of the city. We would suggest that you base your accommodation site on the needs and interests of your employees.

For example, the 1st and 2nd arrondissement are the heart of Paris. Here you will find many classic Paris attractions. In the 11th you will find that many young Parisians hanging out at trending restaurants and cafes. It is also close to Canal Saint-Martin for relaxing and quiet walks along the canal. On the other hand, the 8th arrondissement is busier and has many luxurious hotels, great museums, and a lot of name brand stores to shop.

Transportation

There are many ways to get around Paris. Car, bike, train, bus, scooter, you name it! If the employees going on the incentive trip would like to travel the city like a true Parisian, we suggest you utilize Paris’ metro and bus system. The public transportation is very reliable and you can get to anywhere in the city! There are individual tickets or unlimited passes that you can purchase depending on how long you plan on staying in Paris.

If your employees would rather get from point A to point B as quickly as possible to make the best of their time in Paris, we suggest you book private transportation. Although this option is a bit more expensive, your employees will have a driver with them all day to drive them anywhere they would like to go.

Places to Visit
