One of my nightmares in covering attractions in New York City is the crowds and the lines waiting for tickets. I shouldn’t actually isolate New York as I find that generally speaking, waiting for any high-demand tickets basically eats up a good portion of my trip.
When I discovered Tiqets, I could pre-book skip-the-line tickets for various top destinations the same day. I know there are other websites similar to Tiqets, but Tiqets offers a last-minute cancellation on all tickets. Tiqets is also very reputable with excellent ratings. The website is so easy to use. I entered my zip code and discovered a local attraction for a discounted price for the next day. Tiqets also provides tips for the city you are visiting and sample itineraries.
Tiqets offers combination passes such as the Big Apple Pass and Hudson River Bundle. We, in particular, went to the Empire State Building and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The app is a simple login, and it’s pretty easy to use. It gives you a QR code that is scannable immediately at the ticket counter. It might sound silly, but one of my biggest concerns was that I would have to scan this to pick up tickets elsewhere, but the QR code worked right at the gate correctly without any issues.
Right now, they are running a “Summer of a Lifetime” special for New York so you can go beyond what we did and also do the hop-on, hop-off bus, the American Museum of Natural History, and the 911 Memorial.
Fortunately, they have other options besides skipping the line, like the premium access for the Empire State building and night and day access. If you’re considering going to the city, I would highly recommend Tiqets for its ease of use and discounts.
