MSE News: Don't fall into the red as Olympic ticket payments delayed

UK Hols and Theatre


We’re struggling at the moment with the huge volumes of messages we’re getting from Forumites about coronavirus and the impact it’s having on their finances. We’re a small team and we’re doing our best to manage this spike in demand.

It’s an exceptionally tough time for the holiday, travel and events industry, and we are swamped with questions about your consumer rights around cancelled concerts, flights, hotels, theatre shows etc.

We’re a small team and we want to make sure Forumites are getting the answers they need accurately and quickly. So for the time being, we are hitting pause on this board and redirecting everyone to the MSE coronavirus guides that contain all the info we have – these guides are being constantly updated:
Coronavirus Help & Your Rights * Coronavirus Travel Rights

And of course, we have the Coronavirus Boards on the forum:
Coronavirus Support & Help * Coronavirus Travel Help & Info

    can i just double check something? do they take the whole amount for all the tickets you bid for, or just for the ones you've been successful at getting? a friend told me the former, saying we would then be reimbursed the balance at a later date, but that seems unfair to me.
  • They only take the money for the tickets you have been allocated. I got lucky and had a letter from MBNA before I applied for tickets saying any purchases on my credit card between April and June 2011 would be interest free until April 2012 so used that.

    If you pay by card my understanding is they will only take the amount you've been successful for. If your paying by cheque you need to send a cheque for the total you've applied for and they will cash the cheque and refund the difference for any tickets your not successful for.
