“Extortionate markup on ticket prices”

Written on: 13/05/2014 by Davidson104 (1 review written)

The concert was great for my wife and daughter. The fact that getme in is supposed to be a ticketmaster company would suggest that the tickets should be reasonably priced. Absolute day light robbery for probably the worst seatsin the house for McBusted. Ticket face value £39, final cost per ticket £93. Forgive for thinking that the face value is supposed to be adhered to, and it is an offence to tout tickets at a greatly increased price. A nominal surcharge would be acceptable of perhaps 15%, but not a markup 250%. There appears to be no moral conscience and this is a company I will probably never use again. Shame on you!

Thank you for your review, we really do appreciate your feedback and I'm sorry to hear that you were unhappy with your McBusted tickets.

As we’re a ticket resale website we provide a secure platform for members of the public to sell on their tickets, so the price is set by the seller depending on the current market rate and how much they want to receive per ticket.

We always display the face value during the checkout process so you can make an informed decision.

If you have any more questions please don’t hesitate to get back in touch.

Kind regards,

It is perfectly legal to sell tickets over face value. Getmein always show the face value of tickets on their site - it's up to buyer to decide if they want to pay that much.
