What we like about the Turbopass
There are a few arguments in favour of the London Turbopass:
- Although the selection of attractions is comparatively small, it is attractive.
- The Turbopass costs less than the comparable London Pass.
- If you are interested in several services of the Turbopass, you will save some money with the pass.
- The validity of the pass is flexible. Opt for a duration of one to seven days.

What we don't like about the Turbopass
However, there are also some arguments against the turbo pass:
- The number of services is comparatively small. Other London Passes include more attractions: the London Pass and the London Explorer Pass.
- Some top attractions are missing: for example Westminster Abbey, St Paul's Cathedral, The Shard, London Eye, Madame Tussauds and London Dungeon.
- The Turbopass is most worthwhile for two to three days. The other variants are less worthwhile.
- Unfortunately, Turbopass does not grant priority entry. For most attractions you will have to queue at the box office.
Our assessment: Is the Turbopass worth it?
From our point of view, the Turbopass can be worthwhile for some travellers. You should use many of the expensive services: Tower of London, Hop-on/Hop-off bus, boat trip, Kensington Palace, Hampton Court Palace or even London Zoo.
The Turbopass is most worthwhile with a validity of two or three days. During this time it is quite feasible to use many services and save money.
However, there are a few things you should consider: Some major attractions are not covered by the Turbopass. You must reserve your tickets online before visiting.
We think the Turbopass is worth the money. Savings are possible if you use a lot of expensive services.
