About Biltmore One-Day Passes
Share with Friends & Family!

This complimentary one-day admission allows Biltmore One-Day Pass guests to enjoy all regular Passholder benefits plus Passholder Appreciation Limited-Time Discounts on the day of their visit. Passholder does NOT need to be present with One-Day Pass guests for admission.

Please note that a Biltmore One-Day Pass:

  • Must be presented (with One-Day Pass barcode intact) at Biltmore Admissions Gate to gain access to the estate; without barcode, One-Day Pass is not valid for estate entry
  • Is not valid for Free Exhibition Audio Guided Tour to A Vanderbilt House Party: The Gilded Age
  • Must be kept with you at all times
  • Is not valid for re-entry after leaving the estate 

Special Reminder for Biltmore One-Day Pass Guests:
While enjoying your One-Day Pass experience, you have the opportunity to upgrade to a NEW Biltmore Annual Pass for just $119 (plus tax)*—a $100 savings off regular new Pass price! To do this, please visit any Guest Services location.

*Valid for NEW Passholders only.

Biltmore One-Day Pass may not be redeemed for cash or sold by any person for cash or other value. Biltmore in its discretion may refuse to honor any Biltmore One-Day Pass which it determines has been sold and may revoke Passholder status if restrictions are violated.

Review Our Passholder Appreciation & Biltmore One-Day Pass Visit Tips

Here’s how to have the best possible Passholder Appreciation experience.

Please Plan Ahead:

  • Consider visiting on weekdays when Biltmore guest volume is lower and Biltmore House Reservations are not required.
  • If a weekend visit is the best choice for you, please know that Biltmore House Reservations are required for all guests on Saturdays & Sundays during Pass Appreciation, and every day from March 1–15. Please use your Passholder Priority Line 800-413-9787 to reserve your preferred date and time.
  • Be aware that activities, tours, experiences, and events have limited capacity—advance reservations are required. Please use your Passholder Priority Line 800-413-9787.
    Before booking, review age and physical requirements to ensure accessibility to outdoor activities
    Biltmore reserves the right to cancel activities, tours, experiences, or events if certain requirements are not met, or due to inclement weather or availability.
  • Need more admission tickets? Passholders and Biltmore One-Day Pass guests save $10 on regular gate price during Passholder Appreciation (January 7–March 15, 2019).
    Passholders: Simply log in with your pass ID and purchase additional tickets online.
    Biltmore One-Day Pass guests: Please visit the Reception & Ticketing Sales Center to purchase your additional tickets.
  • All Passholder Policies apply during Passholder Appreciation.

Please Try to Avoid the Following:

  • Weekend visits and the final days of Passholder Appreciation (March 1–15) when we anticipate the highest volumes of guests. 
  • Arriving without a Biltmore House Reservation! Please use your Passholder Priority Line (800-413-9787) to reserve your preferred date and time.
  • Removing the barcode on your Biltmore One-Day Pass prior to arriving at the estate Admission Gate.
  • Reselling your Biltmore One-Day Pass—these One-Day Passes are our gift to you.

Plan Your Visit Today!

Remember: on select days, your visit requires a Biltmore House reservation. Call ahead to reserve your preferred date and time with our Passholder Priority Line: 800-413-9787.
