Petition Action

Ban dynamic ticket pricing and extortionate booking/handling fees.

Petition Details

Put a ban on ticketing websites such as Ticketmaster using dynamic pricing for when their sites are at their busiest and scrap extortionate booking/handling fees. Tickets should only ever be sold at their face value on legitimate booking sites.

Additional Information

Ticketmaster has a monopoly on ticketing for stadiums worldwide and in a cost of living crisis have introduced dynamic pricing to increase tickets from their face value when the site is at its busiest. This is unacceptable. Of course people are going to be on the site at the same time when the tickets go on sale, that's how ticket selling works.
There is no proof of improvement to Ticketmaster's booking service with the amount of extra money they are making from dynamic pricing.
