If you're planning a trip to Toronto, you will undoubtedly want to visit some of its many attractions. To help save money on your trip, it is a good idea to check for money-saving coupons on the places that you would like to visit. Coupons for attractions in Toronto can save you anywhere from 10% to 50% or even more off the price of regular admission.

This article highlights some of the best deals and places to find discounts on popular Toronto attractions.

Toronto CityPASS

For visitors wanting to see some of the most popular tourist attractions on their trip to Toronto, the Toronto CityPASS can be a great money-saving option.

The pass includes admissions to the CN Tower, Casa Loma, Royal Ontario Museum, Ripley's Aquarium of Canada and either the Toronto Zoo or Ontario Science Centre, and saves you 41% of the cost of admission tickets if purchased individually at regular prices. It can be purchased online or at any of the participating attractions. Passes are valid for nine consecutive days once they're first used. Once you have the pass, you can avoid waiting in the ticket line-ups at each of the attractions.

The cost of the passes bought on-site (as of May 2016) is:

Adults (ages 13+): $72.00 + $9.36 tax = $81.36 CDN

Children (4-12): $46.00 + $5.98 tax = $51.98 CDN

If you buy the passes online, there is also a processing fee of $1.39 per pass.

The CityPass is a great deal if you are planning to visit all of the included attractions. Keep in mind that the Ontario Science Centre and Toronto Zoo are located a fair distance from downtown Toronto. While it is possible to travel to these places by public transit, it will take quite awhile - something to keep in mind, especially if you have young children.
