DAS: Don’t be a meal ticket when it comes to dealing with touts

Concert-tickets

Getting your hands on the hottest tickets in town can often mean spending hours in a queue or glued to a screen hoping to be one of the few who is lucky enough to secure their entry. Ticket touts are nothing new and the ever-increasing demand and short supply of tickets has seen a surge in the number of ticket re-selling websites.

However, many consumers have been left out of pocket by rogue ticket sellers and recently the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) has taken action against four of the main secondary ticketing websites after finding that they were not transparent with consumers about additional fees and charges.

Under such a ruling, second-hand ticket websites are now banned from not including all charges and fees that apply to buyers at the start of the booking process to ensure that consumers can make an informed choice before buying.
