So you’ve decided on a trip to the nation’s capital. Now you just need to decide what you are going to do when you get there! Thankfully London contains more things to see and do than anywhere else in the country and one of the best ways this is proven is by the world famous theatre scene, from the West End to other stages around the city. And if you want to get hold of coveted theatre tickets then you will undoubtedly want the peace of mind and security that comes with purchasing tickets online safely.
But how can you ensure that you have purchased theatre tickets safely when buying online from dozens of different theatre agencies? Ideally you will want to get the tickets that you selected and paid for whilst also getting the best deal around.
To do this you will want to firstly ensure that the site is based in the United Kingdom (for example their address might end with ‘.co.uk’) and then look into other aspects of the business. Have they been in business for a long time? Do they have any contact details such as phone numbers? If they do then this means that you can call someone at the company if a problem has arisen.
You will also want to ensure that you have a good seat in the auditorium before buying, so ensure that the website confirms your seat number at the time of booking. That way you will not be disappointed after you have paid for the ticket.
Finally, you can also ensure that the website adheres to particular rules, such as those laid out by the Society of London Theatres, who can be found at www.solt.co.uk.
