2 Amazing Discounted Ticket Packages for Top Tourist Attractions

Updated: Dec 4, 2023

Throughout the Dale, Let's Travel! blogs, you have seen us talk about Go City in our first blog post, Fun while Saving in Los Angeles, California. In the past month, you have seen us go over the Tampa Bay CityPASS when we visited Busch Gardens, The Florida Aquarium, ZooTampa at Lowry Park, and the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. Now, let us explain what CityPASS and Go City are, what's the difference between them, where you can use them, how to use them, and why you should use our links below. Let's learn to save!

What are CityPASS and Go City?

Before defining them, I want to point out each company's slogan as they perfectly encompass what each company is:

CityPASS - "Spend less. Experience more.™ See Top Attractions."
Go City's - "One pass, all the sights."

In short, CityPASS and Go City are companies that sell discounted ticket packages for you to enjoy top tourist attractions in a specific city. Although the concept is similar for both companies, they carry them out in different ways.

What are the main differences between CityPASS and Go City?

CityPASS sells ticket packages for 16 cities in North America, while Go City sells ticket packages for 30 destinations globally! Another difference is that CityPASS typically has fewer attraction options as it solely focuses on the top attractions for that location. On the other hand, Go City has more options as it includes activities that are less well-known, like scavenger hunts and walking tours.

Where can I use CityPASS and Go City?

As mentioned above, CityPASS is in 16 cities in North America, and Go City is in 30 destinations globally. Below, I will list each location for both companies.

How do I use CityPASS and Go City?


CityPASS

You purchase your tickets online for the city you are interested in exploring. Most cities on the list, excluding Denver, Orlando, and Southern California, have a validity period of 9 consecutive days, including the first day of use. Denver's validity period is 7 consecutive days, including the first day of use. While Orlando and Southern California have varying validity periods depending on the tickets purchased - this information is included with your purchase instructions.


The validity period begins and includes the first day you use your CityPASS tickets (not when you purchase them online), except for the Orlando and Southern California theme park tickets. You have 365 days from the purchase date to redeem your pass. In that 365-day grace period, you can get a full refund on any unused CityPASS tickets - refunds are not available once a portion of the ticket has been used or if an uncanceled reservation exists. However, make sure to check with the CityPASS website itself for its return policy as there are some exceptions for the theme park CityPASS tickets.

Concerning the validity period, yes, you can visit more than one attraction in a day! For example, we did the Clearwater Marine Aquarium and the Tropics Boat Tour Dolphin Cruise on the same day within our 9-day validity period.

Most CityPASS tickets allow you to visit 4 to 5 attractions. However, some only allow you to visit 3 attractions, and there is even one that grants access to 10 attractions! It's important to note that the Orlando and Southern California CityPASS tickets have distinct features - check out the website for more details.

Go City

Similar to CityPASS, you purchase your tickets online for the location you want to visit. On the other hand, Go City offers an All-Inclusive Pass and an Explorer Pass for a majority of their cities. Exceptions: Go City only offers All-Inclusive Passes for Gothenburg, New Orleans, Oahu, and Stockholm. While Rome, San Antonio, and Sydney are offered only as Explorer Passes.

The validity period for Go City depends on the pass type you get. For instance, the All-Inclusive Pass is purchased by number of days meaning your validity period is the number of days you bought. While the Explorer Pass is valid for 60 days from the activation date. Either pass you purchase, you have 2 years to redeem your first attraction/activity. Moreover, Go City offers a 90-day cancellation period from your purchase date for any non-activated passes. However, if you purchased an All-Inclusive or Explorer Pass for Chicago, you have 365 days to cancel.

As previously mentioned, the All-Inclusive Pass allows you to go to as many attractions as you want from the listing in the number of days you purchased. You can purchase between 1 through 7 days, depending on the location - check out the website for more details. Concerning the Explorer Pass, you can pick to visit 2 - 7 activities from the listing and will have more time to visit each one compared to the All-Inclusive pass - you can find more details for each specific location and pass on the Go City website.
