“Paid too much money and still don't have tickets. awful”

Written on: 26/12/2013

ABSOLUTELY NO communication. I have emailed multiple times and heard nothing back. I received one completely unhelpful email yesterday. I want the problem fixed and my tickets sent to the correct address. I paid my money, how hard is it to get them to me. Or respond to an email especially when i pay 250 aud for 80 aud tickets. I want someone to answer my questions or give me a refund for undelivered tickets. No matter how desperate you are to see a show, unless you have much money to burn and… Read Full Review

“Fraudulent selling tactics!!!, Please do not use them”

Written on: 17/12/2013 by bmerm59 (1 review written)

As a present for our son and his visiting australian friend, we applied for tickets for the boxing day match Manchester City -v-Liverpool from Manchester City partners VIAGOGO. My wife found 2 seats and tried to purchase them, but payment refused and transaction cancelled. So she tried again this time it was confirmed, then 20 minutes later an email stating payment had not been authorised this was all done before lunch on Fri 6 Dec 2013. I came home at 6.30pm and then tried to get tickets for… Read Full Review

Doesn't sound as if Viagogo is being very helpful at all. Why don't you list them for sale? At the very least you may get your money back. (It's free to list tickets).

Unfortunately, it states on the back of the tickets, that it is a criminal offence to re-sell them. Viagogo, wont transfer us to a supervisor, thier contact us links are disabled, having read more reviews on this bunch, Watchdog and the press are a definate approach.

As Viagogo have entered a partnership with Manchester City it's perfectly legal to list or buy tickets on their site. If they didn't have a re-selling agreement with Manchester City you wouldn't have been able to buy the tickets in the first place!

No - I don't work for them! Only trying to be helpful. If you're not happy giving Viagogo your business you could check out Seatwave, Stubhub or Getmein and see if they have a selling agreement with MC.
It is only illegal to sell the tickets without the permission of the home club.
Honestly, all the big re-selling companies are the same and although sites like this make it look as if they are totally incompetent the majority of buyers are happy with the service. You have to remember that they all sell thousands of tickets every day and a very small minority of buyers are unhappy. You have obviously been the victim of a computer glitch and I am surprised that Viagogo haven't been more helpful. Are you sure their original email didn't say that they were still trying to get authorization on your card?

“Lost my money”

Written on: 30/11/2013

I wanted to sell my tickets, because I wasn't able to attend the concert. So, I was really happy to come across this site, only to be cheated at the end. I followed the instructions, get the tickets in an envolope, meet with the UPS guy and send them as instructed. The concert was unfortunatelly canceled, which is bad luck for the guy who gut the tickets (but could still get the money back). However, I did my part but so far I haven't recieved any money and it's been more then a month since the… Read Full Review

If the concert was cancelled (not rescheduled) then you will not get paid. However, Viagogo should return your tickets to you so that you can get your own refund from whoever you bought them from.

“I WOULD AVOID! - completely messed up my ticket”

Written on: 28/11/2013

Conclusion: I wouldn't recommend Viagogo. Stub Hub seems like the best option to me Bought a standing ticket for a concert 3 weeks before the show. 6pm the day before the show, I get an email from viagogo saying they couldn't contact the seller and they could only offer me a replacement ticket in row x block 210...miles away. No refund offered. Takes 20 minutes to speak to someone in customer service and once you get through they are not helpful. I would avoid. Managed to get a ticket… Read Full Review

There is no guarantee that Viagogo can supply you with any kind of ticket. The company are just middle men selling tickets that they are not guaranteed to sell.

Three days before the event they sent me an email saying that they could not supply the tickets… Read Full Review

We bought our tickets about 4 months before the night out, was all confirmed, tickets paid for etc. Then 2 weeks before night we got an email to say the sellers had pulled out and they would offer us tickets further way and refund £20! I did not want to let kids down as it was such last minute, so i accepted. Only to find out the lady sitting next to us had been through the exact same thing with VIAGOGO!!

It's more than possible that the lady sitting next to you had ordered tickets from the same seller who had let Viagogo down. Viagogo only act as the middle man between buyer and seller and are at the mercy of the seller. More power to Viagogo for honouring their guarantee and finding you tickets for the event.

Transaction ID 3520493 This is the worst company I have ever dealt with!! They should be arrested as what they are doing must be criminal!!

Written on: 20/11/2013

Viagogo act as a middle man between buyer and seller. They never see the tickets, therefore they have no way of knowing if they are fake or not. If the tickets were fake ofcourse they will refund you, but they do need proof that you were refused entry - that's obvious. Once they have the proof they will offer you a full refund and they seller will not get paid.
Yes, Viagogo is based in Switzerland which is not a third world banana republic. It's one of the most law-abiding countries in the world.
They have refunded you for the tickets you were able to prove were fakes and have offered you a 50% refund on the one you have no proof for, which is actually above and beyond their call of duty. What else do you expect them to do?

Hi,

First of all, who actually are you?
If you work for Viagogo you really have to brush up on your customer service skills.

If you don't work for them, only 1 word for it -Sad!

As I am not going to get in a discussion with someone with no customer service skills, I would just like to clarify a few points for any other customers reading this review.

1. Viagogo offer a 100% ticket guarantee.
2. At no point did I say Switzerland was a 3rd world banana republic- these we're Andiamo's words.
3. This company is based in Switzerland, so it is difficult to get support from Trading Standards and any EU authority.
4. I have actually received a FULL refund for ALL the tickets purchased.
5. Unfortunately the police in Turkey did not stop to write me a letter to state I had fake tickets.
6. I still have 2 of the tickets in my possession.
7. I travelled half way across the world to see this event.

I would like a reply from a trained member of staff from Viagogo please.

Regards

I believe this website is open to anyone who wants to comment.
I am delighted to hear that Viagogo refunded you for all three tickets, therefore honouring their guarantee to the full.
I am just interested to know which law you think Viagogo have broken.

Yes it is open to anyone, but you do comment a lot on this site. I have read some of your replies and they seem to me quite sarcastic. I don't wish to get into a debate with someone like you. I will happily reply to any other genuine customers.

Again if you do work for them I still think you could do with some training in customer service skills.

Seated tickets were found and paid for a year ago for a Jessie J concert - £250+ paid for 2 tickets - 8 year old daughter very excited. No word until a stock email a week before the concert, saying that tickets would be on their way soon - that was reassuring... 2 days before concert and still no tickets - so I called Viagogo. Eventually got through and was told that 'oh, actually we had an email from the seller(??) this morning...' - alarm bells as we were under the impression that our… Read Full Review

“Did exactly what they said they'd do”

Written on: 09/11/2013

Had been hunting for reasonably priced last minute tickets for Richard II at Stratford. Finally found them, the day before we wanted to go. Not only good price (Viagogo added £15 fees - fair enough) but arrived by special delivery on the day. This, despite Royal Mail sending them to the wrong sorting office and having to redirect them!! Excellent guy on the customer service phone was very reassuring about all this. Admittedly that would be my only grumble, took hours of holding to get through… Read Full Review

“Rip Off”

Written on: 08/11/2013 by rainie25 (2 reviews written)

I purchased tickets to see Elton John in Las Vegas which were very expensive but I assumed that the seats would be brilliant for the price we paid...wrong! They were the cheapest seats, right at the back, the mark up on them was outrageous and to top it off I had no choice but to pay and extra £40 to have them couriered. I guess that's another way to make more money rather than email them to me to print. I felt completely ripped off by this company and wouldn't use them again… Read Full Review

Hello,

Thanks for getting in touch through the Review Centre.

viagogo is a ticket marketplace and prices are set by the seller and may be less, the same or more than the original price. As a buyer, you can choose which tickets are the right price and location for you. viagogo’s role is to guarantee every ticket traded on the marketplace.

Kind regards,

I was a little skeptical at the beginning as I got Platinum tickets for $50 each less than the original price. Once I confirmed the booking I received the tickets as eTickets so I had them right away. The viagogo staff assured me they are true tickets and if not i was covered by their guarantee.

Me and my friends purchased 6 tickets 30 days ago, to go to a Dortmund football match tomorrow. We were supposed to receive the tickets, but we never did. Viagogo blames the reseller. I blame Viagogo for the crappiest customer service support ever. It's almost impossible to reach them, you need to wait an eternity on the phone.

Dear Storove,

Thanks for getting in touch with us through the Review Centre.

We were very sorry to hear about the problems you experienced with your Barcelona tickets. This was a rare and isolated incident where a seller let down a small number of buyers.

We are refunding any of those who were affected and will be providing compensation. We always go above and beyond our guarantee to make sure our customers are looked after.

We have also taken the necessary steps with the seller to ensure that this won’t happen again.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any other questions.

Kind regards,

Written on: 29/10/2013

It's a shame that somebody of Viagogo stills trying to clean their name on the net after a day like last saturday. It's also a shame that this person, don't sign his comment, because probably don't know what is he talking about because probably he wasn't at Barcelona disorder. There were more than 100 people with no tickets, I don't think there is a small number of buyers. There is no point on compensation that can repare to be a weekend abroad spending huge amounts of money to only see a match that you'll never get a ticket for. NEVER WILL USE VIAGOGO AGAIN
