Sore feet, grumbling crowds, and hours of your trip down the drain. Sound familiar? It doesn’t have to. Enjoy ticking top sites off your list and saving time with our tip for savvy travelers: skip-the-line tickets. That’s right, priority access. See the sights you just can’t miss and use the time saved for more fun.

1. Enjoy royal treatment at Versailles

A true aristocrat wouldn’t dream of waiting in line, much less to enter the palace. With us, you won’t have to. Instead of waiting amongst the crowds (strictly for peasants), use the time saved to nibble on delicate pastries and macarons. When you’re done, glide through the palace gates on your own time — after all, you belong there.

2. See Dubai from every angle

Dubai is a city of superlatives. With dazzling opulence at every turn, it might seem extravagant to breeze past the line to see the top floor of the Burj Khalifa. Trust us, it isn’t. We promise you’ll get used to the good life (and fast). Take advantage of your newfound free time with a cruise of Burj Lake by abra water taxi and see the mighty skyscraper from below before you head to the 125th floor.

3. Discover history & mystery at the Vatican

The world’s smallest country boasts so much history and so many visitors. Don’t let the crowds dictate your day: see the Sistine Chapel and Vatican Museums on your own time in an exclusive group. Enjoy the perks of no-wait access: more time for gelato and Illuminati tours.

4. Meet the masters at the Rijksmuseum

In the past, securing an audience with one of the Dutch masters would have taken ages. These days, the lines to see their work can feel just as long. Not to worry! We make it easy to skip the line at the Rijksmuseum and see famous artwork by Vermeer, Rembrandt, and more. With all that time saved, you’ll have time for a pint or two at the old Heineken brewery just around the corner.

5. Delight in curved lines at Sagrada Familia

Gaudi wasn’t a fan of straight lines, so we can’t imagine he would’ve liked waiting in one. Enjoy fast-track entry to Sagrada Familia and see Gaudi’s curvy masterpiece up close. After you’ve soaked it all in, use your extra time to sip on sangria (time of day doesn’t matter, you’re on vacation!) and enjoy some tapas.

6. Explore the Big Apple

New York City has a lot to offer, and the last thing you want to do is wait in line when you could be on the 86th floor of the Empire State Building. Take full advantage of priority access tickets and plan your visit around what really matters: your stomach. We recommend a food tour of Greenwich Village. It hits the spot and sure beats standing in line.

7. Go big at Miniatur Wunderland

Though Hamburg’s Miniatur Wunderland model railways are, well, small — we can’t say the same about the lines to get in. Lucky for you, priority entrance tickets will bring you past the crowds and directly to the tiny trains you’ve been longing to see. After you’ve seen the world in mini, walk along the Speicherstadt’s waterways and enjoy the area’s Neo-Gothic architecture.
