My opinion on the La Rochelle Privilege Passport

What if I told you that I know a very nice way to (re)discover La Rochelle while saving money? For the past 13 years, the Privilege Passport has allowed you to take full advantage of great activities in La Rochelle and the surrounding area. I had the opportunity to test it for you!

The principle of the Privilege Passport

As its name indicates, the Privilege Passport allows you to benefit from exclusive offers. As a Passeport holder, you can benefit from discounts of 30 to 50% in more than 150 establishments in La Rochelle, but also in the surrounding area. Restaurants, shops, wellness, leisure or cultural activities… You are spoilt for choice!

The passport is available in two versions:

Presented in the form of a booklet, the Privilege Passport is a real little guide to leaf through. Classified by category, you will find on each page a presentation of the partner establishment and the associated offers. It is a very good gift idea if you want to offer it. Its small size allows you to carry it easily during your walks in La Rochelle.

If, like me, you live grafted to your smartphone, then you should know that the Privilege Passport also exists in a digital version. After a short registration, you will be able to connect to your account, select your partners and favorite offers to take advantage of it! For this version, you have two options: activate your Passport immediately using the activation email you received after your purchase or receive an activation card at home if you wish to offer it to a loved one.

The Privilege Passport is sold for 49€, either in paper or digital version. It is valid for one year, in all partner stores and establishments.

Depending on the partners, you will benefit from Privilege offers and Permanent offers:

  • Privilege offer – from 30% to 50% valid on your first visit
  • Permanent offer – from 10% to 30% on each visit, valid throughout the year

The best addresses to try thanks to the Privilege Passport

During my meeting with Marie Jeudy, the founder of the Privilege Passport, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that many of the addresses I frequent in La Rochelle are available in the Passport. Here are a few examples of the good addresses where you can take advantage of these offers:


Another address where you can travel and enjoy yourself at the same time: Koya. This Japanese-Peruvian restaurant is one of my favorite places to eat sushi or tataki. Again, it’s a rather chic restaurant, but affordable.

The Privilege offer: 1 menu bought (starter + main course + dessert) = 1 menu offered. The offer is valid for any first visit. The permanent offer: a free cocktail (with or without alcohol, up to 4 people) for each visit with the Passport.

The Brasserie Là-Haut

Located on the second floor of the aquarium, the Brasserie Là-Haut offers a breathtaking view of the port of La Rochelle. A charmingly decorated setting offering traditional cuisine with seasonal flavors.

Privilege offer: 1 menu purchased (starter + main course + dessert) = 1 menu offert, as long as you consume at least one paid drink. Permanent offer: -10% off the bill for the table.

Nonno Leo

Head for Naples without leaving downtown La Rochelle! Located on rue Bletterie, Nonno Leo offers a nice menu of Neapolitan pizzas.

The Privilege offer: 1 pizza bought = the same one offered (on the spot or to go). The permanent offer: -10% off the bill, drinks included.

Garden Café

The salad bar located in the courtyard of the Temple, in the heart of the city center, is a good address for lunch! Its large terrace allows you to enjoy the sun during your lunch break. But you can also take away or eat warmly in one of the restaurant’s rooms.

The Privilege offer: 30% discount on the bill for 2 to 6 people (drinks included), on the spot or to take away. The permanent offer : -10% off your bill, from 1 to 6 people (drinks included).

Sophie Pozzobon

I met Sophie 2 years ago and I can only recommend her studio with my eyes closed. I did eyelash extensions at her studio as well as a Japanese manicure. But Sophie also offers nail polish, nail arts, etc…

Privilege offer: 30% off all services (except nail art). Permanent offer: -15% on all services (excluding removal only and nail art).

Hugo Coiffure

For over 16 years, Hugo has been styling the hair of the people of La Rochelle. Installed in a beautiful salon on avenue des Cordeliers, he has made it a welcoming place, where events are regularly held in the presence of designers and various speakers.

The Privilege offer: -50% on all services (excluding products). The permanent offer : -20% on all services (excluding products).

Isabelle Ribert

Want to treat yourself to a moment of well-being? Discover Isabelle’s massages ! She offers different techniques from all over the world: foot reflexology, Californian, Indian or Ayurvedic massage. There is bound to be a massage that will do you a world of good!

Privilege offer: 50% off a massage. Permanent offer : -15% off all treatments.

The Flowers between them

Head to Les Fleurs Entre Elles on Boulevard Sautel, a florist who creates custom-made bouquets. You can also find decoration there. The little extra? During the composition of your bouquet, take the time to have a little coffee on the spot!

The Privilege offer: -30% off your purchase (offer cannot be combined with the loyalty card or in-store offers). Permanent offer : -15% off your purchase.

Adventure Games

Looking for an idea for a family outing? Head to Angoulins, a ten-minute drive from La Rochelle, at Aventure Games. Laser game, battle arena or Crazy Bbubble Academy: you are bound to find the activity that will allow you to spend a good time with your family or friends.

Privilege offer: one free activity for one paid activity (-50%, 3 free activities max/group). The permanent offer : -2€ on all activities (from 1 to 6 people)


Where to buy the Privilege Passport?

Would you like to have your Privilege Passport or to offer it to a loved one? You can order your Passport in paper or digital version directly on their website.

Don’t hesitate to contact your company’s CSE for more information.

In conclusion

If, like me, you like to go to restaurants or if you regularly do activities in La Rochelle and its region, this is a very good idea! Sometimes in just one outing, the price of the Passport is amortized.

As someone who is very connected, I must admit that the digital version is the one that suits me best. I have access to it in one click on my smartphone, via a shortcut. New partners are added throughout the year and one can easily find out about them by simply visiting the “New” category in the offers presented on the site. The paper version is a beautiful, qualitative object. It is perhaps more suitable than the digital version for a gift, especially if you give it to someone who is not necessarily very connected.

Did you know the principle of the Privilege Passport? Is it the kind of product that makes you want to discover the city?
