Discounted Helicopter Flight with Day Pass

When you purchase your Day Pass, it is possible to add a helicopter flight over Manhattan for $229 + heliport fees, making it a very good deal instead of booking your helicopter flight separately. This price is in addition to the price you pay for the Sightseeing Day Pass.
In the confirmation email, you will find a code for your Day Pass and a separate code for your helicopter flight. Follow the steps in the mail to secure your helicopter flight. Do this in time to be sure of a spot.

How does the Sightseeing Day Pass work?

Purchase the New York Sightseeing Day Pass easily online, before you travel. You will immediately receive a voucher with a QR code. This code is your pass. You can show it at the entrance, on your phone, to get into each attraction. I recommend you also print the pass, so you have a copy on paper, just in case.

A change of plans? A Cancellation Cover is automatically added at checkout, allowing you to cancel your unused pass free of charge for up to 12 months after purchase. The pass is activated as soon as you visit the first attraction. From that moment, it is redeemable for your chosen number of (consecutive) days.

The Sightseeing Day Pass is really flexible. You can decide which attractions you want to visit when you’re in New York; there’s no need to do this beforehand. As soon as you order, along with your pass, you’ll receive a link to the digital guide. It contains information on the tours and attractions and tells you how to use the pass at each one.

Eric’s Tip: “With the Sightseeing Day Pass you can really see and do a lot during your trip. I recommend getting the pass for a minimum of three days, then you are really getting value for money! Do you want to take it a little easier? Then choose the New York Sightseeing Flex Pass. You just decide the number of attractions that you want to see and have 60 days to visit them.”
