Hints and tips

  • Airport transfers

    The AirTrain links JFK terminals to Jamaica Station, with a convenient way to access the subway. Board the train heading towards Times Square. This affordable option takes around 45 minutes for the entire journey.

  • Travel off peak

    Travelling during off-peak months provides a more relaxed and cost-effective experience, with fewer crowds and potential savings on accommodations and attractions.

  • Coupons

    When you check into your hotel, keep an eye out for voucher booklets in the lobby, these handy booklets often contain a variety of discounts that you can utilise at nearby shops, restaurants, and bars.

  • Show tickets

    If you're happy to be flexible with which shows you see, it's worth waiting until the day to visit the kiosks and see what bargains can be had for last minute tickets.

  • Shopping for souvenirs

    When it comes to souvenir shopping in New York City, consider bypassing the pricey options found in heavily touristed areas. Instead, venture into local markets where you can uncover unique and budget-friendly finds.
