Cornwall Tourist Pass
The Cornwall Tourist Pass is different from many of the city passes in that it is a discount card, rather than a smart card that allows swap money for card payment. It can be used in various shops, attractions, restaurants and more..... It does not have any travel benefits.
Its comes in three different formats but is widely accepted in businesses within Cornwall, helping visitors and residents save money. They can be purchased by Tourists, Students & Residents and gives you unlimited discounted admission to Cornwall's top attractions for one low price but also you can make savings of up to 50% and Free Nights Accommodation. Anyone over the age of 16 can purchase a pass but this does not restrict under 16ís from taking advantage of the benefits.
All the cards are valid for up to five persons including the holder.
The Tourist Pass is sold to visitors for £7 for 7 days & £10 for 14 days.
There are also two Cornwall resident passes.
You can buy the Passes online via this link or from an Authorised Retailer and is valid for the period purchased. 25p from every card sold is donated to Cornwall's Air Ambulance, so you're helping a charity as well.
How to Use it.
What Savings Can Be Made
The sort of savings you can make for instance if you were to visit Flambards a family of 4 would cost £23.80, however with the discount card it would give you the benefit of a 10% discount and cost you £21.42. If on day two you then visited the National Seal Sanctuary in Gweek normal price would be £37.80 with the discount of half price being offered by this attraction it would only cost you £18.90. So far we have saved £21.20 and for a 7 day ticket at a cost of £7 it has certainly paid for itself. The prices quoted here were taken off the website in July 2008.
