TopView NYC, a tour bus company that takes people all over New York, knows all about the costs of visiting New York and how tourists can take a more budget-friendly trip.
Blair Nicole, the PR director for TopView Sightseeing, says, ďYou donít need to go broke to see New York. If youíre smart about where you stay, what you see and how you get around, you can have a great time without spending like a high roller.Ē
From the research TopView NYC has done on how to see New York on a shoestring budget, a few strategies stand out as big money savers. By implementing these on a trip to New York, visitors will spend much less.
Around for Accommodations
With how close everything is in New York and the ample public transportation, staying outside of a preferred area isnít a big deal. Travelers should check out a variety of hotels, not just the major ones, and broaden the search with Airbnb. Tourists could opt for a room on there instead of a whole place.
This doesnít mean travelers need to avoid the expensive attractions entirely. Just be selective about them and look for cheaper alternatives when possible.
Overspend on Transportation
Public transportation is inexpensive and fast. For travelers who plan to use the subway frequently during their trip, there are MTA passes for just over $30 that let visitors ride as much as they want over a seven-day period. Even for visitors who will only be in town for three or four days, this may still be the most affordable option.
