Refund Protect is an optional service offered to ticket purchasers by Sticky Tickets, it allows the purchaser the ability to upgrade their cancellation rights by protecting their ticketing costs if they are unable to attend an event due to unforeseen circumstances. With a successful claim, the ticket purchaser receives their refund and the event organiser also receives the funds from the sale.
If the purchaser selects to protect the purchase, the whole order is protected, the only exception to this is that donations and free tickets will not be included in the coverage. If a purchaser chooses to add this service, it will be billed and added to the total purchase amount (on top of the ticket price and booking fee).
Some example circumstances covered include:
- Accident, injury
- Adverse weather
- Scheduled airline or private vehicle failure
- Pre-existing medical conditions
- Refund Protect can only be applied during the booking process. Once the tickets are booked and paid for, the service can no longer be applied.
- Refund Protect fee is calculated on the total ticket price inclusive of the booking fee. It will be 8% of the total order (excluding any donation amounts).
- If the event is canceled by the event organiser, you will receive a refund for the ticket and booking fee price but the Refund Protect fee will not be refunded. Note that the amount of the refund will depend on the organiser's refund policy.
