Discount vouchers are, in essence, "coupons" that give you a price break on such things as admission fees, meals, transportation, and other things that can quickly add up on a trip to New York City. There are different types of discount vouchers, all of which can offer different discounts, so you want to do a little price comparison. A few of them are listed below.
This card allows you free entry to over 45 attractions in New York City. The only thing you pay for is the card purchase, and of course any food, souvenirs, and other items you want to purchase at each attractions. Further, The New York Pass also lets cardholders go to the front of the line at some attractions. This can be a great benefit for families who have small children or for those visitors who cannot stand for long periods of time.
This pass is in book form rather than card form. To use one of the vouchers, you simply tear or cut it off the page it is on and present it at the attraction or restaurant that it applies to. The New York City Discount Attractions Guide leans heavily towards discounts at eating establishments, which can save you a lot of money, as it can be expensive eating in New York City. However, there are also discounts on admission fees, as well as discounts for tours.
The name looks similar to the one listed in the first section of this article, but it is a different discount program. This program allows you to visit six of the most popular New York City attractions, or take a Circle Line Cruise, or visit the Guggenheim Museum.
A word of caution about some of these passes. While they do offer great discounts, and are worth the money you spend on them, some of them do have a usage time limit on them. The NEW YORK CityPASS, for example, has a nine-day usage time limit, and your nine days starts the first time you use it. And, these are calendar days, so you need to keep that in mind. The New York Pass can be purchased for one, two, three, or seven days. The day count starts when you first use it, and, again, these are calendar days.
