How the Cape Town Flexi Attractions Pass Works

The most popular Cape Town product offered by iVenture, the Cape Town Flexi Attractions Pass is an easy-to-use, budget-friendly way to see the best of Cape Town and the surrounding neighborhoods. You can save up to 50% on admission to the attractions you’re interested in, and don’t need to purchase individual tickets for each attraction.

You buy the pass in increments of three or five tickets, and then you’ll get admission to your choice of any three or five attractions of the included attractions listed above. No need to choose in advance, just pick as you go and enjoy!

The pass itself is a Smart Card that tells the admission counter you’ve paid in advance for your tickets. Simply swipe it at the gate, and you’re ready to enter the attraction. Keep an eye out for any attractions that allow iVenture cardholders to skip the line, too.

What’s Good?

The most exciting thing about this product is the obvious value you get. Their website promises that you’ll save up to 50% on combined attraction admission, which is an excellent deal.

Another great benefit is how flexible this product is. You don’t need to confirm anything you want to see in advance, just pick and choose as you go (although don’t forget to make reservations if a cruise or tour you’re interested in requires one!). This is particularly useful when your plans need to change on vacation for weather or other reasons.

The Cape Town Flexi Attractions Pass is also really simple to use. It’s like a credit card, so all you need to do is swipe it and go! No need to keep track of a lot of tickets.

Another useful feature is the duration of the pass. You’ll get 14 days from activation (the first time you use the pass) to visit all of your chosen attractions. Again, really handy for when plans may need to shift or if you’ve got a really long stay in Cape Town.

The pass also comes with a lifesaving full-color guide that includes helpful information for all your eligible attractions. This makes it so much easier to plan what you want to see and do.

As an added bonus, the pass also comes with extra discounts on shopping, dining, and additional activities. It’s a terrific way to save more on everything you like to do during your vacation.

How Could the Pass Get Better?

The Cape Town Flexi Attractions Pass includes a wide breadth and selection of attractions to choose from. So, the downside is that you can only visit five at most with the pass! If you want to visit a sixth attraction, you’re paying out of pocket. If you want more options, you may want to consider one of the other iVenture Cape Town Cards, the Unlimited Attractions Pass or Unlimited Premium Pass.

Another important consideration is that the pass typically only includes general admission to the listed attractions. So, if you want to take advantage of a special exhibit or additional activity at one of the chosen attractions, that’s an additional cost for you. That’s not uncommon on passes like this, but it can sometimes be disappointing.

Get Your Money’s Worth

A crucial bit of calculation you should make when deciding how to maximize the value of your Cape Town Flexi Attractions Pass is which attractions will give the most bang for your buck, so to speak. You want to pick high value attractions with a high admission costs to use for the pass, and anything else you want to see that’s under $20, for example, just pay for yourself. That way you can see more, and save more, too.

You should also budget in transit costs. Although many of these popular Cape Town attractions are located in a central area, a few (especially the wild life attractions) are located a decent trip further away from the heart of the city.

Insider Tips

The Cape Town Flexi Attractions Pass is good for two weeks after your first attraction visit. Be sure to purchase the pass in advance (enough time for them to mail it to you) but don’t use the pass for any discounts until you’re ready to start sightseeing.

It can be smart to have at least a rough idea of what you want to do and see on your trip. Because some attractions require reservations (like cruises, tours, or animal encounters), it’s a good idea to decide somewhat in advance so you can be sure to get those reservations in.

This pass also allows you to skip some lines! Check the guide to see which attractions offer skip the line benefits. This guide is available online or in hard copy with your purchase.

iVenture also changes their included attractions periodically, so you may find that something you saw before is no longer include, or that there’s something new. If something is inconsistent or unclear, contact their customer service agents.

Where to Buy the Cape Town Flexi Attractions Pass

The Cape Town Flexi Attractions Pass is available from iVenture online or over the phone.

You may also purchase the pass in town once you arrive at a number of specified purchase locations. However, you will likely pay more for the pass than you would if you purchase in advance, online.
