Is Viagogo Legit,
Reliable or Safe Today?

My Experience: I’ve tried Viagogo (it’s legit and safe, but not always reliable), but discovered SeatGeek.

Cons: Viagogo Review

As a resale marketplace, ticket availability fluctuates with demand—as do prices, and as such neither is guaranteed by Viagogo.com.

Many times a ticket might have wildly different prices to the face value, particularly for in-demand events. However, if a buyer is eager to go to a particular event, the extra money may not be a major concern.

  • Ticket May be Over Face Value
  • Ticket Prices Can Fluctuate
  • Service Fees at Checkout

    Do not use Viagogo. Not sure why the reviewer gave it such a high score. But go by the dissatisfied customers.
    New word for us to use: Vaigog -meaning a low life, someone who is deceptive, underhand and lacks any moral integrity.

    DO NOT PURCHASE TICKETS THROUGH VIAGOGO UNLESS IT IS THE LAST RESORT
    The prices are exorbitant. They blame the seller but it is on them. The claims they make on their site about the best tickets available in the most popular part of the venue at the best price are not true. Their site shows false information, trying to con the customer into believing the tickets are about to run out, whereas, 5 minutes later, the same tickets miraculously become available. Customer service and satisfaction are not part of their company philosophy.

    + PROS: There are no PROS in dealing with this Company
    - CONS: Too many to list, Misrepresentation, high prices, no customer service, lack of integrity, no morality etc

    I purchased tickets for the HSBC London Sevens and wrote to Viagogo customer services about there pricing structure several times but the emails were never received.
    Face value of 4 tickets £130.00 Viagogo ticket price for 4 tickets including their charges, Vat and internet delivery £295.68.
    We enjoyed our day at London 7’s but the cost has left me feeling ripped off. I will not be using this service again.

    I feel I have been conned. It appeared that these were the last tickets available for that price. Doesn’t show up that you are not buying ticket from the event organiser.

    Will recommend no one uses them ever.

    I can get over paying exhuberant fees, but when you pay 2600 euros for premium tickets in the front rows and receive tickets in a different section way in the back worth only 800 euros…UNACCEPTABLE!! After 4 hours in the phone, the tickets were replaced only to find out at the venue on the day of the event that these were fake tickets. BE WARNED, AVOID AT ALL COSTS. Save yourself the frustration

    + PROS: Easy to navigate site.
    - CONS: Fake tickets Poor customer service

    I have read a number of reviews with all the same problems. I too have been conned by paying exuberant fees. Not realizing that this was a resale site, I eagerly purchased tickets for village people only to be stung by paying double the amount. I have now listed these tickets for sale on Viagogo, hoping that I can recoup some of my costs. I need to ask questions: when will I have to pay for these tickets? As I have relisted them to sell, when will I receive payment, if sold. Questions that I cannot find answers to. A hotline number would be most beneficial. Afterthought, I should have checked these reviews first.

    Viagogo is a total rip off site. They sell back row tickets as front row tickets and deliver them 6 days before the concert. When our tickets arrived we thought they had made a mistake as we paid for front row seats only to find we had been send seats for the very back row worth on %59 each when we paid $240 each, They are impossible to deal with and have no phone or email and only send a standard reply to their web portal, They are a total scam stay away.

    During the night after I purchased tickets, I received an email saying that I would be accompanied into the venue by the seller.
    I am from the US and am arranging European travel in such a way so that I can get to this concert. What I want to know is will I really be able to get into the concert? I am willing to accept that the charges may be higher etc., but if I can actually get in, I will be happy. Do people ever actually get into the concert with Viagogo tickets? It seems so many reviews are very negative. Someone please tell me a success story!

      I have used them twice in Australia for Bieber concert and Australian Open mens tennis finals and got the seats we paid for even though we paid more than face value but we knew that up front. For beiber even got an email the day of the concert and final from their customer service in case there were any issues

    Dreadful, I went on line to book some tickets, it flashed that only 6 tickets where available, so it made me panic buy, yes my own fault, only then to receive the tickets and them been extremely over priced, my heart sunk at the way I had been conned, then I tried to find out how I could contact them but to no avail!!!! So then the biggest con, thought I would see what happened if I tried to rebook and low and behold it flashed again only 6 tickets left!!!! Will never be taken in again or use this dreadful company- shocking

    + PROS: Non
    - CONS: Booking fees:-(((( the booking fees where more than the face value of the tickets!!!!

    Fell into this site by accident thought I was on the ticket master site during the adele concert ticket rush. Was refreshing the page and it came up on tickets available. After putting in the details I checked my inbox to find it was from viagogo. The confirmation had section number only no row or seat number. I rang ticket master they told me that the tickets should have row and seat numbers as well.
    I rang my card company to stop payment but to late. They are looking into this as a scam and fraud.
    I have pursued viagogo as they asked me to.
    No joy from viagogo as yet. No tickets no confirmation as to row and seat numbers.
    E tickets have been available for printing for 2 weeks now still nothing
    No answer to my correspondence either.
    I think the only way to stop this scam is via your card company and the weight of complaints into the card companies

    This website should be shut down. Thought it was official website for booking concert ticket. Misled by the way this website advertised. Official booking ticket company should not let other website to advertise concert as if it is official one. Never explicitly informed that the ticket that I am about to buy is a resale ticket with a lot of brokerage fees. How can this website allow to rib off many people and still operating. Please inform many people as many as you can to stay away from this website.

    Avoid like the plague. Secondary ticket site. High hidden fees so a shock when you have finished payment tab. Got charged $189 for 2 x $46 tickets for Reds game. Invoice charged me $72 per ticket (Scalping? ) then added $45 booking fees. No way to cancel order once you have paid.

    PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY AS THEY RIP YOU OFF WITH EXCESSIVE CHARGES AND FALSE PRICE ADVERTISING.
    This company shows when you are ordering 2 tickets ie. 2 tickets £235.99 then states that there is a handling charge and delivery charge BUT NOWHERE IN THE ORDERING SYSTEM DOES IT STATE WHAT THAT AMOUNT IS until you have actually paid for the tickets. For 2 tickets we paid £650.39 which we were unaware of until payment had been taken – £235.99 EACH ticket, £69 handling fee EACH ticket & delivery fee of £5.99 EACH ticket plus VAT. THIS MUST ILLEGAL and am getting in touch with Consumer Advise to report them.

    I have fallen victim to Viagogo. I have lost £200
    UPS and Viagogo claim they have opened an investigation on my missing tickets and all they’ve done is lie! They are trying to insist my tickets were delivered when they were not. Their policy states the package must be signed for and they claim it was yet when I tracked it it says received by “ineligible” and UPS even confirmed, to me when I called them, that there was no signature taken!

    I have requested on two occasions that they raise this as a formal complaint and so far they are all but too happy to ignore this direction.

    I was told that replacement tickets would be sent to me and they are refusing this. I requested to at least refund me and they have refused this too. They claim I didn’t report any issues within 14 days of delivery. They didn’t confirm the item was “delivered” until the 13th day! And I had STILL not actually received my item!

    I listened to their “Guarantee” over the phone and nowhere does it state anything about 14 days to report an issue! It simply says if package isn’t received they will fully refund or find replacement. They have declined to do either for me!

    I will be consulting an Ombudsman and my local Borough Councillor about this and anybody else who is willing to investigate. I will add Choice Magazine and Consumer Affairs too! I assure you I will follow this through!

    I had no idea viagogo is a scalping site. Googled the tickets I wanted and was sent to the site of these cheating pigs.
    Paid $431.00 per ticket booking fee $264.55 Handling fee (whatever that is) $10.22. Total $1136.00. Tickets arrive by email cost $230.00.
    Total these disgusting slugs stole from me $676.00. The venue cannot even guarantee they will honour the tickets on the night.

    I had bought 2 tickets for Paul Anka concert dated on 02,02,2016 in Cracow. The concert was postponed (as Viagogo said on 02,02,2017). I have checked in www, and found nothing about this concert. I have asked Viagogo to give me any url that could convince me about this event. No result. Finally they have informed me the concert is cancelled. According to their procedure I have sent the tickets to their headquaters. I should have wait 10 days for money return. In fact more than 20 days I have no return, but only e-mail they say ”we are working hard on it „
    What disappointment. Think twice before you buy a tickets from them… there is no protection of the buyer!!!

    We have used this service for overseas but now we have used here in our own State, know the actual venue and value of actual received tickets received we started to actually question this whole practice. We don’t understand how people are allowed t, even on priority purchasing days, buy sufficient tickets to immediately sell on. I must say this is where we didn’t fully get this booking service business practice as we believed this type of thing was scalping and is illegal. I never thought a site endorsed by Ticketek would cause us to think they were anything but a genuine service. Providing honest practices but the huge fees are also another area of concern. I have forwarded a complaint or query to Fair a Trading. The Help Centre exists on paper but ad a source of helpother than a generated email is really non-existent, as is the phone number provided. I cannot possibly see how it can be condoned by our relevant laws. We will never use or recommend this site to anyone in fact I think that it should actually be investigated.

    Do not buy from Viagogo – they take the money and then default last minute! Bought ticket for Shawn Mendes concert. Until 2 days before the concert they said all was fine and I should not worry. Then on the last day before the concert they cancelled the order saying that they couldn’t contact the seller. Pathetic. Don’t buy from them!

    As we have received incorrect tickets as our first part of order we are expecting the A Reserve tickets to be correctly issued first up as they are apparently not being delivered until very close to the date of the concert. We are hoping for a speedy resolution and the issuing of our correct tickets according to our confirmation emails.

    + PROS: I believed it was ok when using for overseas events. But hopefully our current issue will sort out as would say bit disappointed with Australia booking to say the least. In fact I would not use again if this isn't an error I would have to say Beware.
    - CONS: Booked and paid huge money for another order for same event for Reserve A tickets and is confirmed hopefully same doesn't happen as our other tickets we received are not those confirmed and are 100.00 each cheaper so value of that order besides all fees etc. is more than 200.00 less than what we were confirmed when booking snd paying. So I would certainly take exception to any lesser tickets for order in excess of 800.00 for 2 tickets! Total spent 1,350.00 for 4 tickets. You would expect correct tickets to be issued.!

    Tickets were paid for and then the order rescinded after more than a week – feels like a scam for money to be used for interest/investment and then refunded to the buyer!! Viagogo should hold the tickets to guarantee good service!

    Never use this company, they are a scam. We’ve recently bought tickets for the Wales v Japan rugby game next month worth £150 for 2 tickets but instead received tickets worth only £20 each. The tickets we originally ordered were £45 each (meaning the remaining £60 must have gone on fees that we had no idea about) in block L37 (at the front) but instead we received tickets worth £20 in block U37 (right at the back).
    Have tried phoning them on the many phone numbers that are online but all I get is an automated voice messaging service and then eventually get cut off.
    Have tried emailing them with the email they provided on my confirmation but this email does not exist.
    Complete scam of a company and an absolute rip off. I would never use this company again and I strongly advise anyone thinking of using viagogo to stay away or they will only steal your hard earned cash!!

    They don’t have any customer service we could reach.

    I was told explicitly by a ticket master representative NOT TO TRUST VIAGOGO

    I just hope they will get my money back.
    They ruined my intire trip!!!

    - CONS: Worst customer service accevity Extremely high handling fees NOT LEGIT or acceptable by Ticketmaster official service!

    Don’t trust Viagogo

    They don’t deliver their commitments. Will NEVER do business with them again.

    They promise they will deliver to your home (which btw costed me $50)…instead, they change the delivery address to 30 miles from my place, in the middle of downtown very difficult to get to…
    They say if you have problems with the tickets, they will refund the cost…instead, despite they had issues, they would not refund the money
    They offer higher prices for tickets and saying “Outstanding value”…which actually are the same as the cheaper ones.
    They are rude when you call them…first you need to call them internationally, very expensive call, they leave you waiting for a while and then they are rude, not interested in helping you and…they hung up on me.

    Will NEVER do business with them again.

    I bought ticket to see Louis CK in London.
    Firstly the surprise of the booking fees of 42£ for 2 tickets that wasn’t clearly announced before making the payment.
    Secondly, I’ve received a message saying that the tickets I bought weren’t available anymore and that they didn’t have any other tickets available for this show at the time and date I paid for. So I’ve asked for reimbursement (tickets + booking fees) and since then I am waiting for a clear answer about my problem. Feel like they don’t want to give me my money back when they can’t fulfill the order I paid for. That is simply theft!

    - CONS: This is just theft! No reliable No guarantee Hidden fees Absolutely unsafe !

    I Paid $499.95 exactly for four tickets and when I received them on the 02/08/2016 after buying them a month ago, I see on the tickets they were $45.00. After a closer look at the tickets they were not even were not even in the section I paid for but right up the back in 626-3 rows 38.I see other people have the same problem. I think this is an absolute rip off but a lesson learned. I will not buy from them ever again. This is my first time using this service and I should’ve done more research, so my fault just want to warn others thinking about purchasing tickets through viagogo. Beware!!

    An absolute rip off sham company! After you commit to buy you will be charged a booking fee, a handling fee then VAT! I was sold tickets to a concert that had already started. 6:30pm was when it started I got my tickets threw at 7:51pm. I e-mailed viagogo to be told I had plenty of time to get to the event! As I am not a time traveler I have no idea how they came to that conclusion! Therefore I would not get my money back, it’s not until your tickets are e-mailed that they then tell you your tickets are in someone else’s name! Avoid these money scamming lowlifes!

    never use Viagogo, unless you want to make sure you loose your money without having tickets!
    We paid 220€ for EUFA 2016 match ,1/8 final. We send several mails telling them that we still haven’t tickets, they respond that they are checking and will revert to us. we never had tickets but few days after the match we noticed that they made us pay for these tickets. While contacting again the client service, they told us that the tickets had been delivered to our address by UPS a week before the match, and gave us a UPS record number. Hence UPS confirmed us that this record number is not for our adress but someine else….we continue sending mails to viagogo , each time they come up with a new response completely dishonest!

    Bought and paid for tickets for an Andre rieux concert in January 2016. Concert was in Oct.. 2 weeks before the date of the concert we started emailing and received only holding mails in reply. All phone numbers we found online either did not ring or trapped you in endless recorded music and no answers. 3 days before the concert- originally the guaranteed date of arrival of the tickets- we upped the frequency of emails. And still received only holding replies. 24 hours before the event, by reading other complaints online we found a number that was answered. With no apology, we were told we would not receive the tickets.

    They are a bulk reseller. They just buy them in thousands and resell them for a lot more.

    + PROS: You can find tickets at 5 times the initial price.
    - CONS: They buy tickets in bulk as soon as tickets go out for sale. Than they resell them for a lot more.

    It was a horrible experince, I didn’t receive my tickets in Romania (even if I paid for transport), then they gave me replacement tickets which were on the last row (even if they were supposed to be at least as good as my original tickets), I had to go and take the new tickets (they didn’t want to send them at my UK adress) and I didn’t receive my delivery money. I also spent 3 hours at phone because all the e-mails from them were useless.

    There’s a new service called Peddlr launching that is trying to address the problems that are left unaddressed by Viagogo, Seatwave and the rest. Taking money from both buyers and sellers, not being paid until after the end of the event, etc.

    It’s being built by people like you who have been ripped off before from these companies, and thought it was time to put their foot down.

    Full disclosure, i’m affiliated to the company, but I really do think they’re working to address a huge problem right now.

    They’re in the early stages, but it’s worth heading over to their website (www.peddlr.co.uk) to show support and encourage them that this is something people actually want fixed, otherwise the big 4 will carry on being able to get away with what they’re doing to customers.

    My husband bought tickets to the rugby thinking he was buying from tiketek because it was the first one to come up on the search. He did not realize they were re-sellers of tickets until we printed out the e-tickets and they had someone elses name on them. They were so overpriced it was ridiculous and on top of that they have exorbatant booking fees and handling fees that are not obvious. Although we have our tickets to go, there is no guarantee on us getting into the rugby. Also it is said that they don’t take money out until after the event. This is not true. They took it out as soon as the tickets were purchased.
    Will never accidently use this site again.

    My wife bought Cold Play tickets for June 12th in Zurich from Viagogo. Unfortunately she picked the first result that was returned on Google when she searched for tickets without checking any other providers.

    We paid 460 francs for 2 tickets. The face value on the tickets is 126.75 or 254 frabncs for 2 tickets. Viagogo charged over 200 francs extra on top of the face value – almost double the cost of the tickets!

    It was very disappointing when we realised that our friends that had bought from honest trustworthy providers had paid nearly half the price we had for the exact same tickets.

    My advice is to avoid this provider – what they are doing is legal (I presume) but their model seems to focus on charging ridiculous charges and inflated prices and hope that they manage to catch some unsuspecting people who don’t know to compare ticket prices.

      A little more info would be helpful for a fair judgement:

      You write “Took my tickets and never paid.”

      … which suggests you sent the tickets to viagogo directly (not to the buyer) using their last-minute-service, because the event was close ahead.

      Were your tickets ever listed online for sale?
      Were they actually sold … and you didn’t receive any payment from them?
      … which would obviously be a shame, if your tickets were legit.

      Or did you sent the tickets too late and they were therefore never listed/sold
      … which I would count as a case of bad luck then.

    I ordered tickets from Viagogo for the Portugal v Austria game at EURO 2016.
    I received an email form Viagogo saying that the ticket was delivered to my address on May 13th but it was never received.
    according to the UPS tracking number they provided me with it had been delivered but it wasn’t.
    You cannot speak to them on the phone as they don’t have a phone number other than an automated system, you can contact them by email but they just don’t reply.
    They used UPS to make the delivery so I contacted them to see what had happened with my ticket, was told that as Viagogo are the shipper it is them who would need to contact UPS for them to start the investigation process, I have requested Viagogo do this on several occasions but still no response & checked again with UPS to see if Viagogo had made contact them a week or so later & they confirmed that no contact had been made.
    This is the first & last time that I will ever use Viagogo & I would advise anyone else not to bother they charge well over the odds as most people are aware, they take your money & don’t deliver the ticket & they are unwilling to speak to you to try & resolve the issue.
    horrible company

    I just managed to buy tickets for a concert that people had trouble getting tickets for since Monday because of the high demand/selling date confusion. I really hope the tickets I bought are legitimate and will work when I travel to the venue because I’ve never really fully trusted any website that re-sells tickets. It’s my first time buying a ticket from a secondary site from the the main vendor so I feel like I’m taking a risk since I heard my friend’s story of getting scammed from buying tickets from a secondary website to a Taylor Swift concert.

    Hope this all works out! I admit I’m still worried from this purchase.

    Hi
    Do people realy not realize that Viagogo is a re-seller of tickets which individuals have put up for sale. This process is no different to buying a ticket on the street outside an event really , the tickets are nearly always going to cost more than face value and you would only want to but from them for sold out events where the official event seller has no tickets left.
    I have bought tickets for last minute events on Viagogo and realize I have to pay more.
    I would advise that you select the tickets that are marked as ” available for immediate download” as then you will not be waiting for something in the mail to arrive.

    Please also note that many sports events do not permit the re selling of tickets and often threaten to refuse entry without ID which matches the name of the ticket purchaser. This puts you at risk but most people accept that. This is true of things like Wimbledon and other sports events but many people do buy and use resold tickets without any problem.

    If you want tickets for sold out events there are always going to be a price to pay. Book early!
