Ticket Purchasers

How do I get my ticket?

Easy just purchase your ticket online and hit the ‘Print Ticket’ button.  The ticket will also be automatically emailed to you as a PDF attachment that you can print. Make sure you look after your ticket and the email as there are no refunds on lost, stolen, misplaced or damaged tickets.  The beauty of this site is that you can reprint it from the emailed PDF; however each ticket number only admits one person unless otherwise specified by the Event Host/Promoter.

You can reprint your ticket at anytime by visiting the Reprint Ticket page and entering your mobile phone number.

If you have not received your ticket , please check your "junk mail folder", as in some instances it can be classed as spam. 

What if I have lost my ticket?

  1. Find a copy of the email that we sent you with your ticket attached and reprint it.
  2. If you can’t find this email go to the Reprint Ticket page.

Can I get a refund on my ticket?

At the time of purchasing your ticket, you will be presented with two sets of Terms and Conditions and it is imperative that you read both sets very carefully, especially in relation to ticket refunds.

The first set of Terms and Conditions are ours, Local Tickets Pty Ltd and our policy is without exception that we do not offer refunds.

The second set of Terms and Conditions are those of your Event Host/Promoter and it is as their discretion as to what Terms and Conditions they place on their event.  Their policies on Ticket Refunds will be clearly outlined at the time of purchase and listed on your ticket.  If they are going to accept a Ticket Refund and you qualify within their Terms and Conditions, then you must approach them as to receiving a refund.  Their details will be listed on your ticket for this purpose.

Can I buy a ticket for a friend?

Yes, you can purchase a ticket for a friend.  Each person listed on the ticket will have their own ticket.  The person purchasing the ticket will be sent all the tickets and it is their responsibility to issue their friends with the tickets and not our responsibility.

How secure is my personal information

We take your security and privacy seriously. All personal information is encrypted using SSL. No credit card details are kept or seen by Local Tickets Pty Ltd.  As part of our terms and conditions, your personal details will be made available to Local Tickets Pty Ltd to keep you updated as to upcoming events (you can unsubscribe at anytime) and to your Event Host in the form of an RSVP List.
