I tried to make a booking but it was declined/expired.
If a booking expires it means it was not successful, so no tickets are sent. If monies look like they have left your account, this is in fact a banking error and the amount is 'pending' and has not left your account. This will rectify itself in a few hours.
I tried to make a booking but was redirected back to the 'Confirm Booking for..' page - did my booking go through?
No, if you are taken back to the 'Confirm Booking for...' page where you have to re-enter your name and email address unfortunately you booking was not successful, as no tickets have been sent. You can always check 'My Tickets' for tickets, as if your booking is successful tickets will show here to be downloaded. If monies look like they have left your account, this is in fact a banking error and the amount is 'pending' and has not left your account. This will rectify itself in a few hours.
I saw a 'Card Declined' pop up when I tried to making a booking did my payment go through?
No, if you saw this message your booking did not go through and tickets have not been sent. If monies look like they have left your account, this is in fact an error, the amount is 'pending' and has not left your account. This will rectify itself in a few hours. You can always check 'My Tickets' for tickets, as if your booking is successful tickets will show here to be downloaded.
Do I have to collect tickets from the Box Office?

For certain events i.e. concerts you may have to collect hard copy tickets at the venue's Box Office - an email would have been sent to the email address you used to book tickets. In these cases your e-ticket acts as a receipt which must be exchanged for hard copy tickets at the box office.

Please take the e-ticket to the box office to get your hard copy tickets, as you are only permitted entry with hard copy tickets.

Please ensure that you bring relevant forms of personal ID - must be photo I.D. that is a full/provisional driving licence, passport. Other forms of I.D. may be rejected.

The main ticket buyer must be present to collect the tickets, and their full name must match their I.D. must be photo I.D. that is a full/provisional driving licence, passport. Other forms of I.D. may be rejected.

Depending on the venue please double check the Box Office opening/close times as you must arrive during this time. Failure to do so can result in non-entry.

I received a 'Payment Declined' email but the monies have left my account.
If you receive a 'Payment Declined' notice, we can assure you that the payment is certainly declined. Please note that although your transaction has been declined, your bank may see this as a "pending charge". However, this will automatically rectify itself in a few hours and the pending charge will disappear.
