3.1 You can purchase a Card from Ticketmaster by telephone on 0844 847 1640, online or in store at any participating retailer.
3.2 Your Card will be activated and ready to use at the point of purchase. However, it may take up to three (3) working days for an e-Gift Card to be activated and ready to use.
4. WHAT CAN YOU BUY WITH YOUR CARD?
4.1 The Card may only be used for purchases in the United Kingdom, online at www.ticketmaster.co.uk or by telephone on 0844 847 1640, of tickets to participating events taking place in the UK and other event-related products ("Ticketmaster Products").
4.2 In Northern Ireland only you can also use your Gift Card (but not your e-Gift Card) at selected retailers ("Participating Outlets") to purchase Ticketmaster Products. A list of Participating Outlets in Northern Ireland can be viewed online.
4.3 You cannot use your Card to buy ticket insurance, to buy any goods or services other than Ticketmaster Products or to buy any goods or services on any third party website, even if the website is linked from Ticketmaster (e.g. www.ticketweb.co.uk).
4.4 Ticketmaster sells tickets and associated products and/or services on behalf of promoters, producers, teams, performers and venues. We refer to these parties who organise or provide the event and/or from whom we obtain tickets and/or associated products or services to sell to you as our "Event Partner".
4.5 We sell tickets allocated to us by Event Partners. The quantity and type of tickets allocated or made available for sale by us varies on an event by event basis. Ticketmaster does not control this inventory or its availability. Where Ticketmaster does not have an allocation of tickets of a particular type (e.g. accessible tickets) for an event or an allocation of any tickets whatsoever for a particular event, the Card may not be used in relation to the relevant ticket type(s) or particular event(s).
4.6 A payment for Ticketmaster Products can be made partly using the Card and partly by other accepted payment methods (for example, credit or debit cards). In respect of online purchases at www.ticketmaster.co.uk, the full value of any unused funds remaining on the Card must be exhausted before another payment method will be accepted in respect of the remaining value of the transaction. In respect of telephone purchases, the full value of any unused funds does not have to be exhausted before another payment method will be accepted.
4.7 When using your Card for online transactions you will need the 3 or 4 digit security number written on the reverse of the Card in order to complete the transaction. In respect of e-Gift Card purchases, the 3 digit security number will be specified in the email which contains your e-Gift Card.
5.1 If you have purchased your Card online or over the telephone, you can cancel your Card purchase and receive a full refund of the price paid for a period of fourteen (14) days beginning the day after the date of delivery of your Card (or activation of your e-Gift Card).
