Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update
The impact of the coronavirus is an issue we are taking very seriously as we know globally it has a direct impact on both our buyers and sellers.

The evolving situation due to COVID-19 (the novel coronavirus) has likely led to questions about what happens if an event gets cancelled or postponed.

If there has been an official announcement from the event organiser that your event has been cancelled or postponed, we will have sent you an email informing you of the next steps. If after 24 hours from the official announcement you haven't received an email from us, please contact us immediately.

  • If an event is cancelled – you do not have to do anything. We will contact you. You will be entitled to a full refund or a 120% voucher.
  • If the event organiser is offering vouchers or tickets to another event – you do not have to do anything. We will contact you. You will be entitled to a voucher or tickets to another event.
  • If an event has been postponed or rescheduled – you do not have to do anything. We will contact you regarding the new date as soon as it is announced. All events are considered valid unless there has been an official announcement stating the event has been cancelled.

At viagogo, customer satisfaction has always been our highest priority. We recommend anyone feeling ill take precautionary steps if attending an event in any region and to always consult your doctor.

Per viagogo’s guarantee, buyers are entitled to a full refund if an event is cancelled.

However, given the unique circumstances surrounding coronavirus, we’re also offering an alternative option:  If an event is cancelled, you have the option to receive a viagogo voucher, valued at 120% of your original purchase price, so you can enjoy an event of your choosing in the future.
