How it works

It works like a buffet. You buy it and you get free entrance in all the attractions included. The more you visit, the more you save. For more details you can visit the section how it works on the producer's website.

Should I get the New York Pass?

If you visits 3 top attractions per day, according to the producer you can save on average:

1-day pass - $18
2-day pass - $45
3-day pass - $73
7-day pass - $196

So it is a good choice if you are going to visit at least a few attractions.

If you are staying for several days, then the longer multi-day passes (3 or 7 days) let you save more as their daily cost is lower.

The pass includes a 140 pages guide, which is useful to plan your trip in advance, particularly to group nearby attractions to visit on the same day to save even more time.

Who makes it

The pass is made by Leisure Pass Group Ltd, who is a member of the European Association of Tour Operators and of Visit London, the official tourism organization of London.
