Latest Health Guidelines for Travelers

With so many uncertainties surrounding COVID-19, we understand you might be concerned about your travel plans but rest assured we are here to help New York Pass holders

How is COVID-19 impacting my upcoming travel plans with my New York Pass? 

Unfortunately, in response to COVID-19, New York City's sights and attractions are temporarily closed. We advise you to check attraction websites for the most up-to-date information.

Although your travel plans may be on hold, there's no need to worry - all unused passes now work for two years from the purchase date! We have automatically updated your passes to be valid for an additional year, so there is no need to contact us to confirm this change. You will not need to cancel your order and repurchase at a later date, as you will have plenty of time to visit once New York City returns to normalcy.

I want to visit a different city once things open up after COVID-19. Can I exchange products?

If you are no longer planning on traveling to New York City, we would like to offer you the opportunity to change locations. Please send us an email in the form at the bottom of this page, and we will assist you with this inquiry

The New York Pass app says my pass is only valid for one year from purchase, although I’ve read that it will now work for 2 years.  How do I confirm my new expiration date?

We’ve already extended all passes in our system to a 2-year expiration date.  In some cases where you’ve already downloaded your passes, the PDFs (or the app) will still show a 1-year expiration, but please note they will still work for 2 years.  On pre-purchased passes, in order to see the updated 2-year expiration, please follow these instructions:

  • On the PDF:  you will need to download a new copy from your email confirmation.
  • On the App:  you will need to delete and then re-install the New York Pass app again.  Once you have downloaded a new copy, you should see the extended expiration date.  

If you have any issues with the display of the new expiration date, just send us a note and we’ll assist you with these steps.

How should I prepare for my upcoming trip?

We recommend you check the travel advisory from your local authority and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's website for travel planning. 

We do advise checking opening times of attractions directly on the attraction website and if unsure we’re on hand to help through our various customer service channels, detailed below. 

We also know that your future travel plans may change, that’s why we’re offering 30-day free cancellation.  Plus, you have up to 2 years to start using your pass - and you don’t have to commit to the date in advance.  This means you can plan your sightseeing safely in the knowledge that you’re protected if things change.

Should I purchase a pass now for an upcoming trip?

Absolutely!  Our highly-rated New York passes remain available for advance purchase despite attractions being currently closed.  When our world-class cities reopen, we’ll be there for you! If you purchase a pass now, you can have peace of mind that:

  • Passes are at the lowest prices of the season and you can start your experience any time within 2 years from the time of purchase
  • We have a flexible return policy.  Passes purchased during this promotional period may be returned within 30 days, with no questions asked
  • You are supporting the tourism recovery effort and helping our family of attraction partners! 
  • Contactless scanning at the attractions - no need to exchange money or hand over a credit card
