best Uber alternatives in Paris

Colleague and I will need to travel short distances around central Paris with bulky video equipment. Walking or public transport is normally fine, but not really with the gear we’ll be schlepping this time. There are bound to be situations when waiting at a taxi rank or taking a chance at hailing won't be ideal. I’ve used Uber previously but am curious about other app-based services in Paris. For example, is G7 reliable? I realize calling for a cab is also a possibility, but sometimes it’s just easier and quicker to use an app. [more inside]

An American teenager in Paris.

Where in Paris might a bright, queer, nerdy but stylish American 16-year-old who's there for a month go to meet likeminded kids around her age? This is my daughter's situation. Also, any other recommendations for her, as long as she's there? (She has a few years of school French but is not fluent.)

France Travel Filter: Is renting an EV for vacation recommended?

I'm planning a trip for my SO and I sometime later this year to France (no actual dates yet). We'd like to visit some regions of France where public transit is not as prevalent and are planning on renting a car for part of the trip. I've seen on various auto rental sites that you can rent an EV at very low rates but I'm not sure that where we're going has a lot of infrastructure for EV charging. Are we setting ourselves up for a logistical nightmare? [more inside]
