Frequently Asked Questions

What are "consecutive calendar days"?

"Consecutive calendar days" are days in a row.

If you have a 3-Day card, and you visit your first attraction on a Monday, your card will be valid on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Start your day early to get the most out of your card!

How do I "activate" my card?

Simply visit your first attraction!

How many days should I buy?

Most travelers visit between 2 and 3 attractions each day depending on individual preference. Our most popular card is the 3-Day card.

Is my card valid all day?

You can enter attractions any time with the Go Chicago Card.

What is your refund policy?

We know sometimes travel plans change, even at the very last minute. That's why, if you don't end up activating and using your pass within a year of the purchase date, we'll give you a full refund. No questions asked.

Here's the best part: unlike our competitors, this built-in cancellation insurance comes with every card purchase — free of charge.

If you have any questions, or if you would like to initiate a refund anytime within 1 year of your purchase, please call our Customer Care Team at 800-887-9103. We'll tell you how you can return your non-activated card or pass.

Please note: Activated passes are non-refundable.

Which delivery method should I choose?
  • Instant delivery is the fastest option. You'll be able to access your Go Chicago Card from your email or on your phone immediately after you purchase.
    With instant delivery you will receive a printable and mobile version of our guidebook.
  • Having your cards shipped in advance will save you time traveling to a pick up location when you get there. Note that transit times vary depending on shipping options. View delivery options.
  • With in-city pickup you can get a physical card and full-color printed guidebook without waiting for shipping. We will email you a voucher which can be redeemed for passes at one of our voucher redemption locations.
Do you ship Go Chicago Cards to hotels?

Sorry, we cannot ship to hotels because of delivery concerns.

I have a voucher, where can I pick up my card?

View a list of in-city pickup locations where you can redeem your voucher for cards.

Where can I buy the cards in Chicago?

View a list of sales locations in Chicago. Note that in-city purchases are available for full price only.

Does a Go Chicago Card expire?

Yes. You have one year from the date of purchase to begin using your pass. After one year, it will expire.

How much will I save?

We’ve made it easy to compare the combined gate prices with the price of the Go Chicago Card, to see how much you could save. Try our Savings Calculator!

How many attractions can I visit in one day?

On a Go Chicago Card, you can visit as many attractions as you want in a day.

Can I visit an attraction more than once?

In most cases, you can visit each attraction once per day. Some attractions are valid only once during the life of the pass. Please reference your guidebook for specific information on each attraction.

What is the age cut off for child cards?

Child cards are for children ages 3-12. Most attractions do not charge for children under 3 years old. However, there are some exceptions (especially children's museums and attractions geared toward very young travelers). If you have a child under 3 years old, please check with the attraction directly in advance. You may be charged at the gate.

Do I need to make reservations to visit the attractions?

Attractions that require a reservation will display this symbol on the guidebook page.

Some attractions require a credit card to hold a reservation. In these cases, your credit card will not be charged unless you do not show up for your reservation.

What happens if an attraction is closed or a tour is cancelled due to weather or other problem?

While we do our best to ensure that all attractions are available, events happen that are out of our control. The great thing about a Go Chicago Card is that there are so many attractions to choose from. If an attraction is closed, or cannot be visited for some reason, we know you'll find a fun alternative in your guidebook!

What do I do if my Go Chicago Card is lost or stolen?

Unfortunately, it cannot be replaced if it is lost or stolen. Please treat the card like cash.

What’s the catch?

There’s no catch. Go Chicago Card has a partnership with all of the participating attractions to make your visit to Chicago as memorable as possible and to help you save time and money.

I still have questions!

GREAT DEAL
By Dan from Las Vegas on
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Go Chicago Card:

Very easy to use. We "killed" Chicago. We probably saved about 1,500-2000 bucks. Taking the bike from the navy pier and biking to other museums saved tons of time. You can use the bikes for a LONG time, so it was perfect. My gripe was the boat rides. You can only do one a day, and the lines and getting there early enough took a lot of time. Overall a great buy and very glad I made the purchase.

Well worth $ for site-see'ers!!!
By Crazy Jen from East Hartford, CT on
Pros:
Diverse Attractions, Variety Of Packages, Shorter Admittance Lines
Cons:
Ltd Entrance Times, Ltd Transportation Incld,
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Go Chicago Card:

My Pros: Online purchasing and pass is emailed to smartphone; no waiting, no paper HUGE bonuses!! Get 'preferential access' with most attractions so no wait in looong lines. Includes a good variety of attractions. Very good value and if you plan things out to maximize how much you do, the value gets even better! My Cons: 'Last entrance times'...Cut off times with this pass is typically limited to 5:00 p.m.; earlier than some attractions allow. So be sure to read the description of each attraction in the book you get; including the fine print! No viable transportation option included. The trolley/bus service offered mostly circles, in one direction, around The Loop. Not efficient; but is good to get a narrated tour. Though be sure to ask current passengers how the tour is going.... The bus we got on was VERY late and then rushed thru the tour. So fast that the guide didn't always get to finish the info and we all thought the speed was actually dangerous! Overall...definitely a good value and I was very glad I had decided on this package after lengthy consideration of ALL of them!

Best Uses:

Bottom Line:
No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Go Chicago Card:

Friends purchased City Card. They were given 7-9 days to use their passes, unlike Go Card, only 3-4 days. At the end of the day, rushing through all that we could, we broke even. I would recommend comparing City Card to see if it's a better option. At least in Chicago, it was.

Great deal
By Gramma in Wisconsin from Junction City Wisconsin on
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Go Chicago Card:

At the Aquarium the line was extremely long, and we skipped right past everyone. Loved it! Best part was the FREE Frango mint pie for dessert at the Walnut Room in Macy's that we got with our cards. The Gray Line bus tour was disorganized, unfriendly, and the PA system screeched so loud it hurt our ears - every 30-60 seconds! We had the 2 day pass for Gray line, but after the first day, that was enough. We didn't even finish the tour.
