So if you’re planning a trip to New York City, you’ve found the right place. But we know you still may have some questions about our product, our service and us. We’ll answer them for you before you even ask. We’re mind readers too.

WHY SHOULD I BUY A PACKAGE? 

Don’t take our word for it. Listen to what a renowned travel writer says in Frommer’s New York City guide book:

“A terrific source specifically for Big Apple packages is NEW YORK CITY VACATION PACKAGES, which can sell you a complete vacation package, including hotel stay, theater tickets, and more – usually for significantly less than you can do by booking everything on your own. What’s more, NYCVP can often build a package that includes otherwise sold-out tickets to Broadway shows like THE LION KING and sporting events; they’ll even book airport transportation and dining reservations for you, if you wish.”

WHAT IF I CAN GET A HOTEL ROOM ELSEWHERE, CAN I STILL GET YOUR FREE INCLUSIONS? 

Chances are if you think you found a hotel for a lower price than we offer, you may be misled. Our package prices INCLUDE ALL TAXES (which are quite steep in the City That Never Sleeps) and all the free features outlined above. Plus, when you book with NYCVP we can arrange all the sightseeing, dining, theatre and event options that you want.

If you still want to book your hotel room elsewhere, we can’t stop you. But we can’t send you all the free stuff, or help you with everything else you’ll want to do. Sorry. Our boss won’t let us.

WHAT DAYS CAN I ARRIVE IN NEW YORK? WHEN DO YOUR TOURS DEPART? HOW LONG CAN I STAY? 

Wait, wait! One question at a time.

Our packages are extremely flexible so you can travel at any time, stay as long as you want (with a few minor exceptions) and arrive on any day. We require just a 2-night minimum stay, but you're welcome to stay as long as you'd like. In fact, we predict you'll like New York City so much you'll never want to leave!

DO I HAVE TO BUY A BROADWAY SHOW OR SOME SIGHTSEEING TOUR? 

No. All you have to purchase through us is hotel accommodations. The FREE EXTRAS are just that … FREE. If you want to purchase tickets to a Broadway show, no problem. If you want to purchase a sightseeing tour or a dinner, no problem. If you don’t want anything except accommodations, no problem.

WHO ARE YOU REALLY, AND HOW DO I KNOW I’M GIVING MY MONEY TO A LEGITIMATE COMPANY? 

Very good questions. We are owned by our parent company, Tenenbaums Vacation Stores Inc., who has been in the business of providing leisure travel vacations since 1983. They are bonded under the rules of the Airline Reporting Corporation (ARC).

We are members in good standing of New York City’s convention and visitor’s bureau, NYC & Co., as well as the Better Business Bureau of Northeast and Central PA.
