DoSomethingDifferent.com has added to its extensive collection of experiences in New York this winter, with tickets now available for ice skating at the iconic Trump Rink in Central Park and a number of new tours and Broadway Shows offered from this winter.
DoSomethingDifferent.com is the only company in Ireland that provides actual rink-ready tickets, instead of vouchers, meaning agents can guarantee their customers admission to the rink even if their chosen session is full. Customers also do not have to queue at a separate location to redeem a voucher.
The Trump Rink (formerly Wollman) in Central Park is the epitome of New York winter cool, surrounded by the splendour of Manhattan’s buildings and as featured in numerous movies and TV shows. Ice skating tickets with DoSomethingDifferent.com are priced at €18 per person and include guaranteed admission and skate rental. The rink is open daily between 25th October 2014 and 5th April 2015.
Agents can choose from a huge range of experiences and attractions, to create the perfect holiday in the Big Apple for their customers. In the run-up to Christmas, availability for attractions and shows becomes much more limited and those who do not pre-book risk not being able to tick everything off their wish list. In addition to passing on cost savings to customers, agents can maximise their own commission earnings by offering tickets to suit the interests of each customer.
