How To Buy And Activate An Istanbul Tourist Pass?

It's simple to place an order for your Istanbul Tourist Pass®! You can only buy it online, therefore in order to get started, these are the steps you need to do. First, determine the total number of days for which you intend to utilize the Pass: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 10-Day. Remember that the Istanbul Tourist Pass® only counts calendar days, not 24-hour increments, so keep that in mind while you use it. If you start using a 3-day pass on Friday at 4:00 p.m., for instance, the pass won't run out until Sunday at 11:59 p.m., rather than Monday at 4:00 p.m., on the following day (Monday). Because of this, if you want to get the most out of your pass while you are in Istanbul, we suggest that you start using it on the first full day of your vacation there.

How To Enter Tours With Istanbul Tourist Pass?

When participating in guided tours, you are required to present the tour guide with your digital pass and attend at the meeting spot ten minutes before the trip's scheduled start time. For guided tours, making a reservation is not required; all you need to do is show up at the area that has been specified as the meeting point. If the attraction you want to visit is designated as "Walk-In" in your account, you may go there by foot and show your digital pass at the entrance. Walk-in attractions are those that do not require reservations and are not part of guided tours. There is no need to make a reservation in advance for the vast majority of the attractions that are included on the pass. However, there is a possibility that some of them have restricted capacities or quotas. As a result, you will be required to make reservations in advance.

How To Make Reservations?

The majority of the sites and services included in the Istanbul Tourist Pass do not require advance booking. However, you may need to make reservations for some of them. To place a reservation for them, you will first need to log in to your account and then scroll down on the homepage of the website. The products in question will be shown to you in a separate list labeled with the phrase "Reservation needed." You may reserve the things that you are interested in by selecting them from the menu and then clicking the "Book" button. On the "Attractions & Services" tab of your account, you also have the option to do this. Lastly, a confirmation email of your reservation will be sent to you through email.
