Going to see your favourite sports teams or performers is undoubtedly a thrilling and memorable experience and in some cases an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Obviously, you would want to get your hands on some tickets when they around town, but you will maybe be up against many others if it is a super special event. As disheartening as this may sound, cheer up. There are a few tips and tricks you can store up your sleeve, which will come in mighty handy especially if you are someone who goes for lots of events in general. If you are new as well, this guide will be useful in offering some pointers on the subject.
Use Multiple Devices
You will need some extra pairs of hands here. A lot of people do this, so you need to be up against the competition. Since the queue will be long, you need a way in as soon as possible. So that means all forces out, laptops, smart phones, tablets, you name it. Make sure any mobile apps necessary are installed and fully functional, and that you have access to a good Internet connection even when so many others are logged on.
Do Not Be Greedy
If you try to score 4 tickets at a time, you are likely to get none. Remember that tickets for high profile events are highly coveted, and therefore are likely to be gone in a whoosh. Go for 2 tickets. All ticket sales generally account for 2 tickets per person, so you are more likely to score on that deal. Be it the AFL tickets or passes to Kanye West’s next concert, remember not to be greedy. It may end up in you losing a chance at all.
Timing Is Everything
Mind you, this is not the sort of thing you can do while being completely complacent. You need to make fast decisions. Working efficiently and as a team is important here. You see, often you only have a short time span to complete checkout, mainly because the sellers do not want to hold onto the tickets for one person for long when there are so many others waiting to get them. So when you do locate another pair of tickets through another browser, compare within that time span to see which is better. Then get whichever is right then without dilly-dallying.
Think Of Your Maximum Spending
Sure the ticket could be $150, but what if for say, $170 you could get better seats elsewhere? Though your budget may have been for $150, with $20, you can enjoy the event better. You should keep this in mind and be prepared to make this decision if it does come up. Being prepared for it is a good idea, hence one of the reasons we included it in this list. Instead of trying to figure out whether it is worth it or not for too long, you will be ready for when it comes up, allowing you to act more efficiently. Definitely the type of thing you want when looking for hard-to-secure tickets.
