WHY ARE THERE BOOKING FEES?
Booking fees go to the agent that sells our tickets for us. In this case Bristol Ticket Shop.
They can feel like an ‘extra’ but as an independent promoter for us to sell our own tickets pre-event would push the price up by between 20 and 30%. The bank would want to take about 20% for processing all of those payments, we would need a specific website, we would need staff specifically to run sales, we would need manned phone lines specifically to deal with sales, etcetera, you get the point.
Our agent acts as a necessary middle man allowing us to keep ticket prices low.
We want Sunrisers to be able to spend their money on other more exciting things such as a couple of workshops, a few rounds at the bar or a relaxing massage.
