How Does The New York Pass Work?

The New York Pass is a ‘smart card’ – like a credit card with a computer chip inside – which allows you completely cash free entry to over 90 New York tourist attractions.

It’s a bit like an all-inclusive holiday – once you’ve bought your New York Pass you don’t have to pay to get into any of the attractions covered by the pass and the more sights you see, the more money you save.

When in New York, simply show the attendant at a New York Pass attraction your card, they will swipe it through a special machine and you will be allowed entry.

ACTIVATING THE NEW YORK PASS
The smart card records when and where you first use your Pass, as well as how long the Pass will remain valid. This means your Pass is activated the moment that you first use it at an attraction or service.

Your New York Pass is then valid for the number of days that you’ve purchased – be it 1, 2, 3, 5, 7 or 10 days. It is important to note that a ‘day’ is based on a calendar day, not a 24 hour period.

VALIDITY OF THE NEW YORK PASS
The New York Pass is valid for use on consecutive days only. You can visit each attraction just once with the New York Pass. At the end of your validity period, the pass will expire and will no longer allow access to attractions. If, for example, you used a three day pass for the first time on Monday, your pass will cease working at the end of Wednesday, regardless of how often you have used it in between.

FAST TRACK ENTRY
As well as free entry, the New York Pass allows you to skip long lines at some of the busiest tourist attractions. Simply look for the New York Pass signs and show the attendant your New York Pass – they will swipe your card through the New York Pass machine and you will be allowed entrance – more >>

BOOKING TOURS IN ADVANCE
The most popular tours often sell out in advance, but once you purchased your New York Pass online, you can secure your place with your online confirmation number. There are 17 Tours you can book in advance with New York Pass

FREE GUIDEBOOK
Every order comes with a 200 page pocket guidebook, which details all attractions and special offers available for Pass holders. If you choose the delivery option it will be delivered with your Passes. Customers collecting their Passes will also receive their free guidebooks at the collection point.

Do you need a break after this exhausting day of hopping around in New York, well click here to rest in a Hotel, and continue tomorrow!
