We consider touting as charging more than it costs to buy a ticket from the official vendor. This means booking fees and credit card charges from the official vendor can be passed on. Additional fees paid to a middleman of any sort can not be passed on!

If someone attempts to charge more than face value for tickets on this site please send the details onto the mods or myself / gary or you can email us at

We will endeavour to keep reporters anonymous in our dealings with the alleged tout.

We also ask sellers to report if someone tries to offer you more money than face value as well. I know this may be difficult but we're trying to stop the idea that people can buy their way into sold out gigs as this is what causes touts to stockpile tickets for popular gigs (and probably causes them to sell out in the first place!) so in the long run you'll hopefully benefit from this.

When you are listing tickets state that you are looking for no more than the face value and state what that is in your listing. If you do not do this and someone claims you touted we will instantly assume you have and ban you without investigating it further. If there are different types of tickets for an event make clear which the ticket you are selling is. If you list a ticket for a cheaper section at the price of a higher section we'll consider this an attempt to tout.

If you want to tout or offer more than face value... DO IT SOMEWHERE ELSE. There are several other high profile websites that allow you to do this. If people are here, they are here to deal at face value.

Please do not ignore the issue if someone asks for more for a ticket after you contacted them. It is wasting your time and others when someone does this and we will act as quickly as possible to remove them from the site.
