Citypass New York Costco sells the Explorer Pass.
Most American shoppers are familiar with Costco, the huge wholesale retailer associated with bulk purchases, like reams of toilet paper or industrial-sized mustard bottles. So it may come as a surprise that the giant retailer can be a resource when planning a trip to NYC: Costco sells both e-vouchers – for items like tours – and citypass books at discounted prices.
The citypass New York Costco sells is the Explorer Pass. If you take a look at our article about the different citypass New York offers, you’ll see that the Explorer Pass is our favorite option. It works like this: You can either purchase tickets to specific attractions at a discount or purchase access to a certain number of their 56 attractions and enter any of them until you use all your entry passes. The Explorer Pass website offers package passes for three, five, seven and ten attractions.
The three-attraction pass sells on their website for $76. For only six bucks more, though, you can buy the unique four-attractions pass on Costco’s. That means you will be able to enter any four of the 56 total NYC attractions for only $83. So, for example, you could use the pass to visit Top of the Rock, the Museum of Modern Art, take a Circle Line tour, and rent bikes to ride along the Hudson River Greenway for the day, all for just $83. That saves you $50 when comparing the costs of individual tickets. The total savings depend on which attractions you select to visit with your Explorer Pass, but you are bound to save some money regardless of your choices.
So, even though it may seem counterintuitive, consider shopping at Costco to save some money on your NYC vacation. And you can even pick up some industrial-sized mustard while you’re at it.This entry was posted in New York City
