Go City Card Review - Saving Money for Travelers

Summer vacation season is here! As people from around the world explore the U.S. from sea to shining sea, budget is top of mind when faced with ever increasing prices for gas, food, accommodations, airfare, entertainment, and more.

City Card, Multi-Attraction Pass

AAA has just reported that a record 41.9 million Americans are expected to travel this Fourth of July.  Whether these individuals are heading to the top tourism destinations like New York, Florida, California, etc. or welcoming visitors into one of these destinations, there is no doubt that sightseeing at popular attractions will be on their agenda.

The ability to save money and feel as if you have received greater value for that hard earned travel dollar drives most consumers. The Go City Card offers vacationers the opportunity to enjoy savings up to 55% on sightseeing in major cities across the U.S. versus buying their attraction tickets individually at the gate.

While travel experts are advising everything from “plan ahead” to “book last minute” in order to save the most on summer 2015 travel, the great news about using a Go City Card is that you can do either. You can buy it in advance so you have sightseeing checked off your list, or you can purchase it last minute —even after you already have arrived at your destination —and it will be delivered instantly to your Smartphone. If you don’t activate the pass within one-year of purchase, you can get a refund, too, no questions asked. For families, singles, or couples heading to Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, New York City, Oahu, Orlando, San Diego, or San Francisco, the Go City Card is a valuable way to save a great deal of cash on admission to the museums, tours, and other attractions tourists plan to visit as these costs can quickly add up. And this is before adding in the cost of food, souvenirs, and more.

According to Go City Card Chief Executive Officer, Ted Stimpson, “Our company’s aggregated buying power and close relationships with 400+ attractions across the U.S. enables vacationers to do more and spend less,” a philosophy that is music to any traveler’s ears.
