Are you the type of person that wants to experience as much as you can when you travel?  So are we! And we’re always looking for cool ways to make traveling less of a hassle, while still saving money.

We love a good deal as much as the next person, but not if it comes at the expense of convenience.

That’s why the iVenture card is such a neat option! It lets you prepay for attraction tickets to your travel destination… which saves beaucoup de bucks, but you aren’t locked into any one experience. Go to whichever available attractions you want. It’s really flexible (unlike a traditional tour package).

Plus, all your tickets are stored on a single card, so there’s no need to carry around a bunch of cash. A big plus in certain foreign countries. And in most cases, you can skip the line all together and walk right up to the front door. Not only is it cheaper, it’s faster.

Want to know more? We’ll break it all down for you.


What Is An iVenture Card?

The iVenture Card is a ‘smart card’, like a credit card with a computer chip inside, which allows you completely cash-free entry or access to your choice of top experiences in the cities that they cover.

Each destination city has different, flexible packages available. iVenture is kind of like the smorgasbord of travel planning.

Take London, for example.  iVenture offers 33 different London experiences including the biggies like London Bridge & Tombs and the Tower of London. You can choose 3, 5, 7, or 10 ticket packages, depending on your ambition level and length of stay. The tickets are recorded on your smart card.

All you have to do is pick which of the experiences you want to do on any given day; be it a theatre show, sightseeing tour, dining, etc., and you just SHOW UP. That’s it. You don’t need money, and most of the time you can skip the ticket line entirely. Easy-peasy.

Mix and match the experiences that you want. Go on whatever day, in whatever order you want. You have a set number of consecutive days to use all your tickets before the card expires. This is usually one month from the date of issuance.

It really makes getting around to see the popular sites relatively painless. Plus, by purchasing a bundle of tickets in advance, you save up to 50% off individual ticket prices.

If we were going to any of the cities iVenture card covers, we would not pass up the chance to get that kind of savings.
