Attraction Pass Discounts

Will it really save me money?
This is probably the most common question we get asked. We’ve built our product to deliver savings compared to buying individual tickets.
Here is how we can save you money:
  1. Smart Destinations (the company behind the Go Card and Explorer Pass) works with each and every museum, tour, zoo, park, and attraction on the price we pay them for visits they receive using our product. Because we bring a lot of visitors (over 2.5 million visits so far), they give us a deal.
  2. We then price our product to pass those saving onto you. Our goal is to ensure our price represents a real saving compared to the cost of buying individual tickets at each attraction.
  3. The card works as your ticket. It covers the regular admission to the included attractions – there is nothing more you have to pay.
Here’s how the savings can work.

Here is an example of the things that one family of four (two adults and two children) did using the card. The prices in brackets are the prices they would have paid if they did NOT have a Go Card and instead had to buy individual tickets. Their three days are just an example - you don’t have to do what they did – what you see and do its up to you!

That’s real money. And we’re not even counting the savings many travelers get at participating restaurants and shops.

Most people spend a lot of time on the costs of hotels and flights but less time on how much it is going to cost when they get there. Smart Destinations makes it easy to see and do what you want for less.
