Gigantic Tickets Refund Promise

We understand that sadly not everyone can attend every event that they book. We wish to give you some peace of mind, although our promise does not extend to all circumstances. Our promise is that we will provide you with a refund for any unused booking if you are unable to attend the booked event due to any of the circumstances set out below.

The promise we offer is an additional service and totally optional. It is a promise that we will make a refund to you in certain limited circumstances for the payment of an additional fee in addition to your booking fee.

Refund Promise is not an insurance nor covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme.

This promise is administered by TicketPlan on our behalf. Please direct any questions that you may have as regards this promise or any refund to them at the address given below. Definitions are given at the end of this document.

Provided that the relevant booked event has not taken place and you give written notice to us within fourteen (14) days of having taken advantage of our Refund Promise, of your wish to cancel the benefit of your Refund Promise, then this promise will be cancelled and your fees paid in respect of the promise will be repaid.

Please note that all relevant reports must be provided in English. We cannot deal with any other language. Our promise is subject to English law.

Our Promise: When we will refund

Except as provided below under the heading “When we will not refund”, we will refund the cost of your booking if you are unable to attend a booked event due to:

  • unexpected disruption of the public transport network which could not have been reasonably known about before the date or time of the booked event provided you supply an official notice from the transport service provider in the event of delay, cancellation, mechanical breakdown or accident in relation to the public transport network;
  • the death, accident, or illness happening to you, a member of your immediate family or any person(s) in the group due to attend the booked event with you, provided you supply either a doctor’s certificate where your refund request is for accident or illness which is not a pre-existing medical condition, or a death certificate where your refund request is for death (additional medical confirmation may sometimes be required following submission of a death certificate). In relation to the death of an immediate family member a refund will only be provided where the death occurs within 4 weeks of the date of the booked event and after the purchased date;
  • the mechanical breakdown, accident, fire or theft en route of a private vehicle taking you to the booked event provided that you supply a vehicle recovery service report (AA, RAC or equivalent), copy of garage repair bill or parts receipt, or confirmation from the vehicle motor insurers, vehicle repairers or police;
  • jury service of which you had not received notice at the time of the booking provided you produce the original dated jury invitation inviting you to be a juror;
  • burglary or fire at your residence in the 48 hours immediately before the booked event requiring attendance of the emergency services provided that in relation to the burglary, you supply the police report with crime reference number or confirmation of attendance of the Emergency Services in the case of fire.

  • you being a member of the armed forces and being posted abroad and/or having leave withdrawn unexpectedly which you had not received notice at the time of the booking provided that you produce the original advice of cancellation of leave/advice to travel at short notice in relation to military service;

  • where a normal pregnancy is the sole reason you cannot attend a booked event, with the exception of pregnancy which occurs after the purchase date and where the expected date of delivery is within 4 weeks of the booked event;
  • you are prevented from travelling to a booked event due to disruption of the public transport network which is public knowledge prior to the booked event;
  • you can recover any part of the booking;
  • in our reasonable opinion, you did not allow sufficient time to travel to a booked event;
