New York, N.Y. (November 12, 2013) — City Pass, the company that packages deeply discounted admission to the top attractions in major North American destinations, has an extra treat for holiday travelers. The annual Winter Special dramatically lengthens each CityPASS® ticket booklet’s traditional nine-day validity period.
Beginning Dec. 15, 2013, visitors purchasing or activating previously purchased CityPASS ticket booklets for New York City, Boston, Houston, Philadelphia or Seattle will have up to 75 days (until Feb. 28, 2014) to redeem the included attraction tickets (one use per individual ticket). Typically, once the first admission ticket in a booklet is redeemed, CityPASS holders have nine days in which to use the remaining attraction tickets. Winter Special, however, waives the nine-day rule, extending the usage period considerably.
In addition to having more time to enjoy leading attractions, travelers with CityPASS ticket booklets will continue to save up to 50 percent off the cost of purchasing the included attraction tickets separately. CityPASS ticket booklets also save time, allowing users to bypass most main-entrance ticket lines.
While visitors have always found CityPASS ticket booklets to be a great deal, the expanded Winter Special usage period also makes the pass attractive to locals who may be hosting friends or family members over the holidays — not to mention looking for ways to entertain the kids over winter break. The Winter Special concept encourages sightseers, both out-of-towners and regional visitors alike, to take their time and explore a city at a leisurely pace.
