HOW TO USE THE NEW YORK PASS CARD AND BOOK TICKETS


First you must purchase your New York Pass for the days you want. It is recommended that you first make an itinerary around the city. My recommendation is that the first few days you group all the activities with a cost so that you can do them with the tourist card and go full speed, from one place to another, to amortize the card as much as possible. And then, dedicate your remaining days to discover the free places in New York or visit places that may not be included with the tourist cards.


Once you have your New York Pass card and download the APP, you must configure your reservation with the APP with a QR code sent to your email.


You must keep in mind that the day of use ends at midnight. That is, if you start your day at 3 p.m., for example, you will only have until midnight to use the card. I recommend that you start using your minimum card one day after arriving in New York, and that you get up early to get a very early start.


With this card you have unlimited activities per day. You can do as many as you have time for, so at the beginning I recommended that you have your New York itinerary very well marked and that you choose places to visit that are relatively close to each other, so as not to waste time on transfers.


Once you have the itinerary, it is necessary to access all the attractions' websites where you will be allowed to make a reservation, indicating that you have the New York Pass in most of them. With this reservation, you just have to show up at the entrance and pass the QR code that you will have for each reservation through the reader, through the APP.


The system is really very simple, but don't forget to reserve, especially in high season, since if you show up without a reservation at a place that requires one, you may be left without entry due to lack of availability.


WHERE TO BUY THE NEW YORK PASS


You can buy the New York Pass on several pages. I recommend buying the NEW YORK PASS on the official website, since it usually has the best rate without intermediary commission.



Although sometimes, some agencies have some sporadic offers, so I leave you all the links so you can compare:
