Viagogo - sold tickets but it says they must be posted minimum 7 days before

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

Is this ever a problem? Usual thing I don't actually have the tickets and dont know when they will be posted to me.

I notice viagogo site says they must be posted to buyer at least 7 days before or you have to pay for them?

Is this ever a problem? Generally, how long before do tickets get sent? (This is for next May)

    It varies from event to event i've order tickets and had them in a week for an event not due for months but I have order them in the past well in advance and they haven't turned up until the week before the event

    I know that ticketmaster state not to contact them about missing tickets until at least 5 days before the event or 5 days before you travel if attending an event further away

    Easy way to stop re-sales. Send tickets out 3 days before....

  • Hi just curious to know if you were able to send the tickets on time and if viagogo actually paid you as a lot of people are complaining about not being paid
