Most Common Questions

Reserved seating tickets may be replaced with a Lost Ticket Voucher available from the Venue Box Office 1 hour prior to show time. An administration fee of $10 will be charged.

Please note there maybe no replacement for General Admission tickets.

When contacting us about lost or stolen tickets please ensure you have:

  • your My Ticketek account number.
  • details of the event including: name, date, time and venue.
  • an explanation of the circumstances.
Only the credit/debit card holder is entitled to collect the Lost Ticket Voucher upon presentation of their credit/debit card used to make the booking, sufficient photo identification and their My Ticketek account number.
We endeavour to deliver tickets within New Zealand in 7-10 working days in accordance with New Zealand Post guidelines.

If you have not received your tickets after this time, please contact us online. We will lodge a request with New Zealand Couriers to trace items sent via courier. Tickets sent by regular mail cannot be traced.
When the ticketing system is unable to locate a sufficient number of available tickets, you will receive the following message:

"Unable to obtain the tickets you requested.

Other customers may be in the process of completing their transaction on all remaining tickets, or the number of tickets requested is greater than the maximum available adjacent seats. Please try reducing the number of tickets you have selected, or try again. When tickets are no longer available the event will be displayed as Allocation Exhausted."


This message is displayed when there is either an inadequate number of tickets to fulfil your request for adjacent seats eg. you have requested 4 tickets yet there are no more than 3 seats next to each other in the venue, or all tickets have been selected by existing customers and they are in the process of completing their transaction. The event is only displayed as "Allocation Exhausted" when all transactions for Ticketek's entire available tickets have been completed as, on occasion, a customer may not complete their transaction and the tickets are then released back for another customer to select.

Credit Card pre-fill

The credit card pre-fill feature allows you to save time and securely save the details of a credit or debit card to your My Ticketek account to make purchasing tickets even faster. Your saved credit or debit card details will pre-populate whenever you are logged in and buying tickets, so all you need to enter is the CVC security code on your card to complete the purchase.

When you arrive at the payment page of your next purchase, you will see a checkbox under the credit/debit card payment section to 'save credit/debit card details'. Checking this box will securely save the details of credit or debit card for use when making your next Ticketek purchase.

You can also add the details of your credit or debit card ahead of your next Ticketek purchase by visiting the Payment Details page after logging in to your My Ticketek account. Please note that the Payment Details page is not accessible from the mobile site or mobile apps.

No, the credit card pre-fill feature simply gives you the option to save your card details. If you prefer not to save them you just need to ensure that the check box on the payment page is not checked before submitting payment on your Ticketek purchase.

Yes, on the payment page your saved credit or debit card will appear pre-filled in the card details section. Also, you will need to enter the relevant card's corresponding CVC security code before submitting payment. For security, only the first 6 digits and last 4 digits of the relevant card number will appear as clear text in the card details section of the payment page.

You will be able to update your credit or debit card details during a purchase transaction by entering new card details and leaving the check box checked to save the newly entered credit or debit card details. You can only save the details of one credit or debit card to your My Ticketek account at any one time, so if you choose to save newly entered card details they will override any previously saved card details.

You can also update your credit or debit card details while you are logged into your My Ticketek account and navigating to the Payment Details page.

Yes, if you wish to delete the details of your saved credit or debit card, you simply need to log into your My Ticketek account, visit the Payment Details page and hit the 'delete' button.

Yes, the option to use your saved credit or debit card or to save the details of a new credit or debit card while making a Ticketek purchase will be available on all online purchase platforms, including Ticketek's mobile site and mobile app as well as the website ticketek.co.nz. Please note that the Payment Details page is not accessible from the mobile site or mobile apps.

If you are purchasing for an event that requires payment by a particular type of credit or debit card, and your saved card type is different, you will not get the option to use your saved card for that particular Ticketek purchase. So for example if you are attempting to purchase tickets in a Visa Entertainment pre-sale, but your saved credit or debit card is a MasterCard, you won't have the option to finalise payment using your saved card.

Ticket Delivery & Collection

Ticketek mobile ticket offers you convenience and improved access at selected events with tickets sent direct to your mobile phone. You'll be able to purchase tickets from either Ticketek’s Web Site, Mobile Site or Call Centre and have them sent directly to your mobile phone.

Alternatively, you may wish to receive all Ticketek mobile tickets on your mobile phone and either forward them to your friends yourself or keep all tickets on your phone and arrive together with your friends.

Helpful tips when arriving at the event:

  • If you selected to have all tickets sent to your mobile phone, make sure these have been forwarded on to everyone in your booking
  • Before arriving at the event open your Ticketek Text message
  • Once your message has been opened, click on the link to reveal your Ticketek mobile ticket in preparation for scanning
  • Ensure the back-light on your mobile phone is turned up to aid the speed of scanning your Ticketek mobile ticket (see the manufacturer's manual for instructions.)

  • Where hand held scanners are used, simply present the mobile ticket to the customer service representative for scanning.

Seat Allocation - Including wheelchair access, stage views and locating a seat
When you book online you cannot choose the location of your seat. We sell tickets on a "next best available" seating system. This means that for each event, tickets become available in order of best seating according to the promoter.

When you make your booking, the tickets allocated to you are the best available in your chosen category at that time.

Please be advised that we act as a ticket-selling agent on behalf of venues and promoters. We have little or no involvement with decisions regarding price. All seats are sold in good faith and in accordance with direction from the event promoter.
Restricted (or obstructed) view refers to seats that have restricted viewing of the stage or event. The obstruction varies in different venues.
If you have special seating requirements such as wheelchair access, hearing difficulties or you require companion seating please contact us on 0800 686 677.

Alternatively you can contact us online.

Most special seating arrangements need to be done through the venue directly. Where possible we will book the tickets for you or advise how to proceed.
On some occasions seats are released closer to the event. Promoters sometimes request that a number of tickets be held for promotional purposes. These tickets are released when not required by the promoter and generally given to us to sell to the public. We are the ticketing sales agent selling on behalf of promoters and according to their instructions. There are no guarantees.

Invite A Friend™

The email you received was sent to you by one of your friends when they purchased tickets for an event through the Ticketek website, to let you know that they reserved tickets for you to the same event.

Invite A Friend allows website customers to purchase their own tickets and then hold a number of adjacent tickets for their friends to purchase. This makes it easy for someone to organise a group of friends to attend an event without the hassle of paying upfront.

When purchasing tickets to certain events (with Invite A Friend enabled) through the Ticketek website, you will be given the option to hold additional tickets on top of those that you are purchasing. Once you select the number of tickets to place on hold, you will need to enter your friends email details (up to 20 addresses) into the Ticketek on-line email form. Once the transaction is completed, Ticketek sends an email invitation on your behalf to your nominated friends, who can then log into My Ticketek and purchase their own tickets from those reserved for the group.

Invite A Friend is available to all website customers for shows where it has been enabled.

No, Invite A Friend is only available for selected shows where it has been enabled. For shows where Invite A Friend is turned off, a simplified version of the functionality will still allow you to send email invites to your friends without placing any tickets on hold.

My Ticketek customers can purchase and hold seats in any combination up to the ticket limit for the event. For example, if the ticket limit for an event is ten tickets then you could buy two and hold eight, buy four and hold six and so on.

You will have the option to invite up to 20 friends to purchase the held seats. The number of seats placed on hold does not affect the number of invitations that can be sent.

There are a number of reasons why an email does not reach its recipient, including:

  • There was a spelling mistake in the email address entered.
  • The email account that the message has been sent to is full.
  • The email account that the message has been sent to is closed.
  • There was a problem with the email server that the message was sent to.
  • The email may have been filtered by a spam filter. Please ask your friend to check their junk mail.

The hold period will be configured (in minutes) on an individual basis for each show. Some shows might choose a short hold period of thirty minutes or one hour, others may prefer to allow seats to be held for several days.

When a My Ticketek customer places seats on hold, the Ticketek website will clearly identify how long their seats will be held for. When the customers friends receive their invitation email it will clearly indicate the date and time at which their held seats will expire.

No. Placing seats on hold and redeeming them is limited to online transactions only.

Held seats are sold on a first-in basis. An invitee purchasing seats can select up to the maximum seats currently remaining for the group. For example, if eight seats were placed on hold and two have already been purchased, the next My Ticketek Customer can buy between 1 and 6 seats.

The website only allows one invitee from a group to purchase at a time. This ensures that the group remains together when purchasing seats by avoiding the following scenario:

  1. Invitee A starts purchasing two seats from hold. They will be assigned the seats nearest the original purchaser.
  2. Invitee B starts purchasing two seats from hold. They will be assigned the next two seats along (next to Invitee A).
  3. Invitee A changes their mind and does not proceed with their purchase.
  4. Invitee B purchases the two seats they were assigned at step (b).
  5. If no other invitees purchase the seats that Invitee A would have purchased then those seats will be released back for sale and the group will have been split.

No, Ticketek will not retain your personal information unless you have already signed up as a My Ticketek member.

iPhone App

This is so we can show you upcoming events in your vicinity. The app also uses your location to alert you of events currently being held at specific venues.

Mobile tickets will automatically be added to your Ticket Wallet when you are signed into your My Ticketek account.

If you are buying multiple mobile tickets, your friends don't necessarily need the Ticketek app – you can simply forward on the mobile ticket SMS to your friend and they can open the link on any internet enabled smartphone on the day of the event to gain entry. If they are using an iPhone they have the option to 'Add to Ticket Wallet' (they will need to download the app to view the ticket in their wallet). This can be accessed using the 'Share and Save' button on the mobile ticket.

Yes, 90 days after the event, tickets will automatically be removed from your Ticket Wallet.

You can opt-into Friend Spotter during the purchase pipeline, on both the Ticketek website and mobile site. To opt in, you simply need to authorise Ticketek to access your Facebook friend details and agree to share your seat details with your friends.

If you don't opt-in during purchase, you can also opt in to Friend Spotter at a later date by using the 'Share and Save' button on your mobile tickets.

This allows the Friend Spotter feature to link your seat location with your Facebook friends.

The Ticketek app will only use your basic Facebook details to access your Facebook friend list and, if they have also opted to use Friend Spotter, show you which of your friends are at the same event as you and where they are sitting.

You can access specific privacy information for Friend Spotter .

Yes, you can turn on and off notifications and location services at any time within the 'Settings' menu of their iPhone or the app?. For location services: Settings -> Privacy -> Location Services, for notifications: Settings -> Notifications

If you find yourself at the venue and unable to access your ticket on your mobile phone, please visit the Box Office and they will be able to help you. You will need to provide some form of ID so that the staff can access your Ticketek account details.

The Ticket Wallet is only accessible within the app once you are logged into your My Ticketek account, so if your phone is stolen, no-one can access your wallet without first logging in to your account. You can log into My Ticketek within the app on your new phone (or on a friends phone) and the tickets will be in your Ticket Wallet.

Mobile tickets may be reissued to the ticket purchaser only, and we recommend that customers contact the Ticketek Call Centre on 0800 842 538 ahead of the event day to do so. You will need to provide some form of ID so that staff can access your Ticketek account details.

The app is built for the iPhone, although it will run on an iPad at iPhone resolution. If magnified, the display may be blurry.

Mobile Tickets

Mobile Ticket delivery gives you the option to have your event tickets delivered directly to your phone via text message.

When you purchase your ticket and choose Mobile Ticket as your delivery option, you will be asked to put in your name and your mobile phone number as part of the purchase process. Once the purchase is complete, a text message will be sent to your phone containing the event information and a hyperlink. By clicking this link, a web page will be displayed containing your ticket. We recommend you open your ticket prior to arriving at the venue to ensure it quickly loads when you are entering through the turnstile.

If you are purchasing multiple tickets in the one transaction, you can elect to enter all of the mobile numbers of your friends to have the tickets sent directly to their phones, or choose to have all of the tickets sent to you to then forward to friends at a later time.

If you are using the Ticketek iPhone app, the mobile tickets will also be automatically stored in your Ticket Wallet when you are logged into your My Ticketek account. Ticketek mobile tickets can also be added to Apple's Passbook for iPhone users with iOS6 or higher installed. To add your ticket to Passbook, simply open the ticket and tap Share and Save to open the Add to Passbook feature.

If you are purchasing through the website or via the iPhone app or mobile site for an event with Mobile Tickets enabled, you will simply need to select Mobile Tickets in the delivery option menu. You can also opt for Mobile Ticket delivery when purchasing tickets via the Ticketek Call Centre or at any Agency or Box Office by informing the operator or agent.

The Mobile Ticket delivery option will be displayed with the existing delivery options when it is available. Note that Mobile Ticket delivery may not be available for every event.

The number of Mobile Tickets that can be purchased per transaction is set to the ticket limit for the event you are purchasing for.

The Mobile Tickets that you have purchased will automatically be added to your Ticket Wallet when you are signed into your My Ticketek account. If you have been forwarded your Mobile Ticket from a friend, you can add it to your Ticket Wallet by tapping the Share and Save button at the base of your ticket.

If you have not received all of your expected SMS's to the nominated mobile number, please contact the Ticketek Call Centre on 0800 Ticketek. Your confirmation email will include all of your delivery details, plus your customer information.

No, as long as every customer has their own Mobile Ticket, you don't all need to arrive together.

When you are purchasing multiple Mobile Tickets, you can opt to have them all sent to your phone or have each ticket sent to a separate mobile number.

As a separate text message will be sent for each individual ticket, you also have the option of forwarding tickets to additional people at a later time.

Yes – you can forward one or all of your tickets to any phone of your choice (consult the user manual for your particular handset for instructions on how to do this). Systems are in place at every venue to ensure that each ticket barcode can only be used once. The recipient must have an internet-enabled mobile phone to be able to view the Mobile Ticket.

Mobile Tickets may be reissued to the ticket purchaser only, and we recommend that customers contact the Ticketek Call Centre on 0800 842 538 ahead of the event day to do this. You will need to provide some form of ID if you are requesting tickets be reissued, so that staff can access your Ticketek account details.

If you have access to the Ticketek iPhone app, you can log into your My Ticketek account within the app on your new phone (or on a friends phone) and the tickets will be in your Ticket Wallet.

If you find yourself at the venue and unable to access your ticket on your mobile phone, please visit the Box Office and they will be able to help you. You will need to provide some form of ID so that the staff can access your Ticketek account details.

Your original SMS may take a short period of time to arrive when a popular show is on sale due to the large demands placed on our systems. If you haven't received your text message after 24 hrs, please contact the Ticketek Call Centre on 0800 Ticketek.

The user will not be able to view the ticket. The user in this instance may view the Mobile Ticket on a desktop computer via the link in the confirmation email and print the barcode, or can visit the box office on the day of the event.

Yes – there should be no issue using a phone that has a clear screen protector.

Make sure the backlight on your phone is set nice and bright. Scanners work much better with a bright screen and it will save you time at the venue entrance changing it if your ticket won't scan.

If you are using the Ticketek iPhone app, the tickets in your Ticket Wallet will automatically adjust the backlight to be suitable for scanners.

No – Most venues have only a small slot in the turnstile where the ticket or mobile phone is inserted to be scanned.

Passbook- using your mobile ticket with Apple's Passbook

The new Apple Passbook application allows you to organise your mobile tickets, boarding passes, vouchers and more in one place for easy access, and will be available to users of the new iPhone 5 as well as existing iPhone users who upgrade to iOS 6.

Simply open your mobile ticket as usual from the SMS you receive from Ticketek. Tap "Add to Passbook" at the bottom of your mobile ticket. This will display a preview of the event pass with all ticket information needed to attend the event and the option to Add to Passbook.

Once tickets are added to Passbook, simply open the Apple Passbook app. Locate your ticket by the Ticketek Logo and event name and tap on the event pass to view. Also tap on the 'i' icon at bottom right of event pass to 'flip' the ticket over to find extra transaction information.

Mobile Ticket Delivery can be selected via ticketek.co.nz when accessing from either a PC or smart phone, or ordered through the call centre.

No, only Mobile Tickets can be added into your Passbook.

No, you can continue to use your mobile ticket. This is just another way of conveniently storing and viewing your mobile tickets.

All mobile tickets stored in Passbook are also barcoded (but with a different 2D barcode). On arrival, simply present your mobile ticket for scanning to gain entry as usual.

Once you have added tickets to your Passbook, you will be able to access event passes at any time regardless of connectivity.

In addition, Apple's Passbook is time and location based, so provided you haven't disabled the feature (in Settings or back of the event pass), tickets added will automatically open and show on the iPhone lock screen when you are within a radius of the venue and event time, making entry into an event with a mobile ticket even quicker and easier.

Once a ticket is added to Passbook, you can the drag back of the event pass to initiate a manual update of details.

Tap the trash can at the top right of the event pass to shred the event pass.

Scalping & Online Auction Sites

Selling tickets or offering tickets for sale for above their face value via auction sites or any other unauthorised means is in breach of Ticketek's Terms And Conditions. Tickets that are detected as being sold or offered for resale in breach of the Ticketek Terms And Conditions may be cancelled without a refund.

If you can't attend an event for legitimate reasons and want to sell your ticket via an online auction site, Ticketek will not object to your sale as long as the selling/offer price is no more than the face value of the ticket. For example, you can use eBay's Buy Now function as long as the ticket price is set at face value or below.

Ticketek doesnot recommend purchasing tickets from any unauthorised ticket resellers as the tickets may not be genuine or may be cancelled by the event organiser.

Ticketek is concerned that the unauthorised onselling of tickets will have significant detrimental effects on the availability and affordability of tickets to consumers and genuine fans.

Ticketek takes a range of steps in an attempt to reduce the incidence of scalping, which are set out below.

  • Ticketek's ticketing system is able to set/limit the number of tickets individuals can purchase to an event at the request of an event organiser.
  • Each ticket that we sell contains the following condition of sale:

    This ticket may not, without the prior written consent of Ticketek and the seller, be resold or offered for resale at a premium (including via on-line auction sites) or used for advertising, promoting or other commercial purposes (including competitions and trade promotions) or to enhance the demand for other goods or services, either by the original purchaser or any subsequent bearer. If a ticket is sold or used in breach of this condition, the ticket may be cancelled without a refund and the bearer of the ticket may be refused admission.
    Scalping warning: In addition, the resale of tickets in certain circumstances is governed by ticket sales legislation and may attract criminal penalties.
  • This condition of sale entitles Ticketek to cancel any ticket that we detect as being sold in contravention of the condition, without refund.
  • Ticketek monitors eBay and other online auction sites for tickets that are being sold in breach of our terms of sale. We also regularly monitor our ticketing system for suspicious transactions.
  • Where possible, we approach eBay, via its VERO program, to have copyright infringing listings removed from its site.
  • We liaise closely with event organisers on matters related to ticket scalping.
  • From time to time we issue statements using for example our Facebook page warning customers not to buy tickets from unauthorised resellers.
  • We cooperate fully with the Fair Trading departments when those departments are pursuing ticket scalpers.
  • Ticketek has also been an active participant in various government forums relating to ticket scalping and has also over the years worked closely with Live Performance Australia on this issue.

Some States have specific legislation in place to manage the sale of tickets in certain circumstances. For example, Queensland has the Major Sports Facilities Act 2001 and Victoria has the Major Sporting Events Act 2009.

General Admission (GA) is a term used to describe a venue where there is no reserved seating for patrons. As a result, strict operating procedures are adhered, to ensure security and crowd control of the event.

Tickets purchased to General Admission events cannot be refunded should they be lost. Ticketek will very rarely permit GA tickets to be distributed via regular mail thus only the delivery option courier is available for General Admission tickets.
