Is the  iVenture Card London worth it – Our opinion

Is the iVenture Card worth it? Only if you have a very select number of high cost attractions to see – such as those in our example above. You could cover some smaller value attractions with your card, but they would likely not cover the cost.

For example, if you picked a  3 day card costing £69 and then used it to pick the travel Oyster card (worth £10) the London by Night Bus tour (worth £21) and Kensington Palace (worth £17) you would actually lose money!

If you want a pass that covers a wider range of attractions and isn’t limited to a certain number of visits, we suggest you check out the London Pass. Review our complete comparison table of all major London Passes below to help you decide.

For whom is the iVenture Card London intended ?

iVenture Card London reviews indicate that the card is good for those who have 3 or 5 specific attractions in mind. If they are featured on the card, then this is a good option for you. It’s also not reallllly expensive, so good for budget travellers. A lot of other passes cost more and include a great range of attractions, but you might not be able to use them all, so that’s essentially wasted money.

If you want to cover a wider range of attractions over a longer period of time, then some of the other city passes on offer might be for you. Check them out here.

iVenture Card London Cons

  • A lot of attractions require you to go to the iVenture ticket desk to collect your voucher. This kind of defeats the purpose of the pass.
  • The bus tours to excursions out of London do not include access to the actual sights, you have to pay those yourself
  • There are a couple of good attractions on here – the Shard and the Hop on Hop of Bus for example – but it leaves out a lot of others. London Eye, Madame Tussauds are not included
  • You can count an Oyster card as one of your attractions, but it is worth only £10 and you could buy one yourself. So that’s not really worth it.

iVenture Card London Benefits

  • Select the attractions you want to see and pay for a pass that only covers those – no wasted money
  • The card covers your attractions of choice, so you can budget easily
  • Some interesting experiences on this card, such as the medieval banquet and other restaurant deals including Planet Hollywood. These usually aren’t offered with other city passes.
  • It’s  therefore quite good to help you cover the cost of some meals out as well, which can be expensive in London
  • Save up to 50% off the standard prices overall

FAQs – iVenture Card London

It’s a sort of mixed iVenture London review here. Whilst we like the idea of using the pass for specific attractions, we find it a bit fumbly. For example having to collect vouchers for an online pass is just an extra hassle.

A lot of the attractions on the list don’t actually cost a lot of money, so you need to hit only the big ones to get the value.

We love the idea of meals being included in the pass, so it gets a big plus here.

In summary, if you are a first time visitor to London and want to hit off the Shard, Hop on Hop off Bus and have a decent meal out, a 3 attraction pass might be worth it for you. Otherwise, we’d suggest a pass with a bigger presence in London.
