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

I tried selling my Jimmy Carr tickets in April for a gig in May. Unfortunately (and I swear the site changed the date for me as I remember trying to put the correct date in a few times without success) I put it for a date some months in the future, September. I did not notice this and dutifully sent the tickets to the buyer. Viagogo informed me that the tickets were for the wrong gig. I pointed out that the seller had 4 or 5 wks at least to inform viagogo and return the tickets. This was not done and I assume the buyer either used or sold the tickets for April. I have since sent and received several messages from viagogo pointing this out. They eventually said they are trying to investigate why the seller did not return the tickets immediately and tell me to wait for their findings.... whilst also sending me automated emails saying they will be charging me £49 for not fulfilling the correct sale. Today I see there is a pending charge on my bank account that will be taken very soon. I asked my bank to stop it but apparently they can't without me changing my card and the payment will go out of my account very soon.
Please help me deal with these crooks. Time is of the essence!

    Ask them for a cancellation and refund by email!!!
    Keep dates and times of calls, requests, and emails.
    If they refuse take them to the small claims court, you´ll have to send a letter before action can this done via email.
    You require a UK address, despite Viagogo AG is in Switzerland, they APPARENTLY trade in UK under the name of VGL at 78 cannon street in London :) Good luck!
