Valencia Tourism launches family card
Birth of a new tourist card for families with children including free transport and discounts at major attractions. Travelling with the family is a sector of tourism that is rising. According to data compiled by Valencia Tourism in 2010, about 12% of tourists visiting the city come with their children.
Attractions such as The Science Museum, L’Oceanographic and Bioparc which are all extremely family orientated are among the most visited tourist attractions in the city. Together the beaches, the Turia Gardens and the Natural Park of La Albufera, all propel Valencia forward as a destination for tourists travelling with children. This is now further enhanced with the launch of their tourist card.
What is the Family Card
The Family Card is a new tourist card that offers a discount on the usual prices of the Valencia Tourist Card: 10% off adults and 20% off children between 6 and 12 years travelling with them.
The Family Card includes free travel on public transport, free entrance or family discounts for many interesting museums, like 15% off the City of Arts and Sciences and Bioparc, 25% off guided tours, up to 20% off in restaurants, a reduction of three Euros on the tourist bus and various discounts on buggy rides and on boat, bike and Segway routes, visits to the stadium of Valencia CF and bicycle rental.
Like the Valencia Tourist Card, Family Card is available in three forms: 24, 48 or 72 hours, saving up to more than 13 Euros in the case of a family of two adults and two children. The new family card can be purchased at tourist offices and on the offers page on www.turisvalencia.es
Children under five years do not need the new card as they travel free on public transport and enjoy free or reduced fares on most tourist attractions.
