How to visit theme parks and attractions for free

Days out with the family can be very expensive with on average tickets costing from £50 to over £200 for a family of 4.

It’s the perfect time to take advantage of your Tesco vouchers that you have sitting in your Tesco Clubcard account. You can exchange your vouchers for attraction tickets and there are some fantastic deals to be had using Clubcard Boost.

Tesco Clubcard vouchers can be worth 4x down to 2x their normal value when you redeem them against one of their days out partners.  This makes your days out with the family to some of the UK’s top visitor attractions completely free.

For every £2.50 of Tesco Clubcard Vouchers you have in your Clubcard account you can exchange them for £10 if it’s a 4x boost to use against entry at a days out partner such as Alton Towers, Legoland, Longleat, Thorpe Park etc.  Even at double their face value, it’s still a better option than just spending your vouchers in a Tesco store.

ccaAt the time of writing you can use your Tesco Clubcard points against over 180 family attractions and restaurants across the UK.

I frequently use Clubcard vouchers to enable me to take the family to some of the top family attractions in the UK as you often get up to 4 times their value, making it one of the best ways of using these points.

Here is a list of some of the major attractions and theme parks that are available in the Clubcard Boost deals

Longleat Safari Park

On the gate prices at Longleat are £33.95, but if you book online 2 days in advance the cost reduces to £28.95.

There are many other attractions and days out to make best use of your Clubcard vouchers across the UK, too many to mention in one post!

The other benefit of using your Club card vouchers for attraction tickets is that they are flexible tickets, so you can use them within 6 months.  This can be a better option than booking in advance with the attraction as you are committed t visit on that day, even if the weather is poor, which can happen a lot in the UK!

I’m a big fan of using my Tesco Clubcard vouchers to enable me to take my family out at a very cost effective way to attractions across the UK and if you have the points, exchanging them for attraction / days out tickets is one of the best ways of using them.
