What are the booking fees for?
When you're booking with us, we'll always be sure to give you a clear breakdown of exactly what charges are involved. The total you pay to receive your tickets is usually made up of:
- The face value of each ticket
- The service charge for each ticket
We know no one likes to pay extra costs, so we do everything we can to keep our fees as low as we can, while still being able to offer you the best possible service.
This is the base cost of your ticket, set by the event organisers – we're not involved in deciding the price, but it's usually based on the costs involved in presenting the event.
This is the only part of the booking that we keep – the face value goes straight to the event organisers. These charges help us to cover the costs involved in running our website and booking line. There are all kinds of things going on in the background – not to mention paying our hardworking staff who keep the cogs turning! The service charge can vary depending on the event – we agree the amount charged with the venue or promoter, based on the costs involved in them putting the show on and us organising the tickets.
