CityPASS | Are you really saving?

Hello, Fellow Travel Stop Adventures (I think we may have to find a shorter name for you all. But this shall do!)

How many of you have heard of CityPASS? To be honest I only have heard of it for Atlanta Georgia but I never thought that it was a true saving. Until I did my research…

My curiosity of if I was really saving money started when a client asked me to book the excursions for their vacation in Atlanta Georgia. They told me they wanted to visit the Aquarium, Coca Cola World, and one other activity that I think they may enjoy. So I started with checking the price of each one; Aquarium $31.95, Coca Cola World $17, and the Zoo $22.99 (who doesn’t enjoy the zoo?) All three totaled out to be $71.94. That was not a saving for Travel Stop to book their client with; I needed more for that price. I noticed that CityPASS was advertised on almost all Georgia websites I just thought it was a way to get people to spend more money, but hey it doesn’t hurt to check it out. Then I realize for 3 activities my clients were paying $71.94 when for $4 more (total of $75 +tax) they could enjoy 2 more activities on their extra free time during their vacation.
Now that is a saving I like and I know Travel Stop Adventures will too!

What is CityPASS? How does it work?

So let’s back it up to what exactly is CityPASS? CityPASS is a booklet of saving (But hey great news!! It now comes digitally so all you do is show the tickets on your phone and you are good to go! No need to wait in line!) You can purchase it by clicking one of the imagines below and all tickets get sent to your email. The booklet is offered in 11 different states and you get passes to 4-6 different activities for up to 51% off (according to their advertisement). Guess who verified if this was true? Yup this girl right here! Below I put the entrance fee for each location (I choose the cheapest price to whether it was buying online, an early bird pricing, or on a discount website) and calculated the total saving in dollar amount! You are welcome! You have a total of 9 days (from the first ticket used) to use all tickets. On each ticket, it has the location operation hour so you don’t have to worry about looking up that information.

Travel Stop Review

Now that I have done the comparison and verified the saving I say it is a steal! Many of the locations partnered with CityPASS are places that people would like to or have plans to visit when they travel. If you have plans to attend any of these locations and the price is the same or a little less for the locations you want to go to why not spend a couple dollars more and get extra activities you may find down time to use. It’s always good to have a backup! I would advise Travelers to purchase CityPASS and avoid the hassle and stress of purchasing each ticket separately and having to wait in line to purchase it at each location.

If you plan on visiting any of these states click on the image for the location and it will take you directly to the sight to read more and make your purchase!
