Disgraceful Europe to UK Delivery Charges.

Recommended Posts

Is it another way to rip fans when ticket agencies charge outrageous fees for international postage?

Today Ticketmaster.de charged 34 Euros & Blueticket.pt (Lisbon) 40 Euros.

No option for collection at either venue unless anyone can advise there was.

Just about had enough with membership fees,service charges,booking fees and numerous presales.

Would it be possible for a mod to enquire about the delivery charges please.

 

Thanks.

Don't where you're having your ticket delivered but for Berlin I get  the following shipping options:

As the title states-the United Kingdom.

Didn't get any options apart from World,Belgium/Netherlands?? or Austria???

Maybe you get other options if you spend 230E's

Created a fake Ticketmaster account with a UK address.

Same shipping prices for a 46E ticket as a 230E , maybe they added "WillCall" later in the day.

But that 5.9E for "WillCall" is a bit on the steep site.

The German promoters I've bought tickets from in the past (Hektickets , Eventim,etc) usually only charge a couple of Euros wheter for it's for a really small show (Lara Snow@Berghain Kantin was 1E) or a much more popular event (NIN@Zitadelle Spandau was 0E)

Good luck with Lisbon

Got GA tickets today through Ticketmaster France.

There was an option for mailing to the UK but skipped that and opted for "print your own ticket", which still cost something like € 1.45 but the tickets came with the confirmation email and I've now got them in my hand!

Been like this for years from most countries, the costs seem excessive. On the plus side, at least they actually send tickets quickly instead of the UK method of waiting until about a week before the show!

Well Ive been purchasing European & US U2 tickets for years and have never come across postage charges like this tour.

Eventim are one main culprit however on I&E tour for cologne they used mobile ticket entry only-simple and cost free.

Whats the issue with print at home??

"Pick up at Box Office" cost me 0,00 EUR on TicketOne.it And that is how it should be.

I paid 16,90 euros to send the Cologne tickets to Belgium. For that amount we could have driven the 90 minites and get them ?. 

I didn’t get any of the delivery options mentioned above.

Thanks again. Did you get a collector ticket? They said no refund because I selected a collectors ticket. Hmm.
