Since the pandemic began, it’s been tough for businesses, HiP Paris included. Most of our revenue was based on travel commissions which were lost. While things are starting to look up, we still need your support. To continue paying our team and contributors and bringing you the best of Paris and France, we need a financial helping hand!
