How does the Sightseeing Day Pass work?

Purchase the New York Sightseeing Day Pass easily online, before you travel. You will immediately receive a voucher with a QR code. This code is your pass. You can show it at the entrance, on your telephone to get into the attractions. I recommend that you also print the pass, so you have a copy on paper, just in case.

A change of plans? A Cancellation Cover is automatically added at checkout, allowing you to cancel your unused pass free of charge for up to 12 months after purchase. The pass is activated as soon as you visit the first attraction. From that moment, it is redeemable for your chosen number of (consecutive) days.

The Sightseeing Day Pass is really flexible. You can decide which attractions you want to visit when you are in New York, there is no need to do this beforehand. As soon as you order, along with your pass you will receive a link to a digital guide. It contains information on the tours and attractions and tells you how to use the pass at each one.

Eric’s Tip: “With the Sightseeing Day Pass you can really see and do a lot during your trip. I recommend getting the pass for a minimum of three days, then you are really getting value for money! Do you want to take it a little easier? Then choose the New York Sightseeing Flex Pass. Where you just decide the number of attractions that you want to see and have 60 days to visit them.”
