All about New York Passes

There are several different types of tourist passes for travelling to New York. So how do you make the right choice and enjoy your stay? To help you get the deal that’s right for you, here’s a guide to comparing New York passes.

What is a New York Pass?

New York Passes work like a discount card. Buying a Pass is like buying one collective ticket instead of several individual tickets to visit attractions. This can save you a lot of money during your stay compared to buying individual tickets.

To take advantage of this, simply order a pass and show it on your smartphone (or in paper form) at the entrance to the attractions. There are two types of tourist passes for New York: attraction-based passes and day passes.

Two Pass formats

Attraction Based Passes

Attraction-based passes include the Sightseeing Flex Pass, CityPASS and GoCity. They allow you to visit between 3 and 12 attractions in New York, depending on your preferences. All of these passes are valid from 9 to 30 days after first use, giving you plenty of flexibility.

Day Passes

Day Passes, such as the New York Pass and Sightseeing Pass NYC, allow you to visit as many attractions as you want or can during the number of days for which you have purchased the pass. They are available for 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 10 days. There is no limit to the number of attractions you can visit, but the days must be consecutive. To choose between these two categories of pass, see if you prefer to travel by the day or by the type of attraction.

Which is the best New York Pass?

Tip: Travel according to your needs and preferences

The New York Pass is the best day pass for people who want to see as many attractions as possible and plan their stay on a fixed budget. It is our most popular pass.

The New York Go City Pass is ideal if you want to travel with more flexibility, i.e. spread your visits over several days (and if you occasionally plan a day off). It includes all the best sightseeing tours in New York.
