Designed for all those who are put off by long queues, the ( portal informs users of the busiest times in the places where they want to go. According to the start-up that publishes the website, a Frenchman spends an average of four months of his life queuing. Administrations, places of interest, travel agencies but also companies’ customer services… The website aims to provide the most relevant information in order to reduce waiting time and enable companies and public organisations to regulate flows.

Loads of tips to jump queues at museums
The company announced on December 14th the release of the second edition of its guide of tips to save people waiting for hours in the rain for Parisian exhibitions at the beginning of 2012. For each exhibition, a chart displays the most favourable times: “The mere act of postponing a visit by a day or even an hour really makes a big difference: it improves people’s comfort and saves them queuing for hours,” Stéphanie Lequeurre, from J’aime Attendre, indicates in a communiqué. The guide also gives a few valuable tips to save time: do not visit an exhibition on the first Sunday of the month because entrance to museums is free, do it on a Thursday or at lunchtime. The guide will be freely downloadable from January 24th on. Do not, under no circumstances, spread the word to your neighbours!
