FAQ - Frequent Asked Questions

Registration

Open/Close section
Why do I have to register?
In order to buy tickets online you have to be a registered member. If you are already registered with us you can log in directly. If not, it can be done simply and securely: click on „new user“ at the top of our home page www.oeticket.com - you only have to enter your name and e-mail address. Activate the „ always stay registered at this computer“ option so you don’t have to enter your user name ( = e-mail address ) and password each time.

After registering you will receive an e-mail asking you to confirm your registration to activate your account. This is a pure data protection measure to check if you are the owner of the e-mail address and that this address is not being misused. Security is important to ÖT.
How can I change my email address?
To change your e-mail address log-in to our homepage or if you are already logged in click „my account“. Here you can change your e-mail address at „ change e-mail address“.
Why do I have to state an additional delivery address?
You do not have to state an additional address but you may save up to 5 delivery addresses in your account. These can be different from your billing address if for example you want to send tickets as a gift or you are not at home during the day and you want them delivered to your office address or your secondary residence.

You can save up to 5 delivery addresses with names (e.g. home, work....) and then choose the appropriate address for delivery.
I forgot my Password - what can I do about it?
If you have forgotten your password simply click „log in“ on our homepage and next to the log in area there appears the prompt „forgotten password?“ You then receive an e-mail at the designated e-mail address with instructions of what to do.

For data protection reasons ÖsterreichTicket does not send passwords via e-mail in this case you receive a code (link) with which you can reset or change your password.

Shopping Process

Open/Close section
Why do oeticket tickets have another price as is given on the official home page of the event?
oeticket is responsible for the reservation, booking and delivery or provision of advance sale tickets. Therefore we charge advance sale and delivery or provision fees. Very often the ticket price without any fees is given on the official home page of the event.
When tickets are ordered by automatic bank debit transfer why does it take 7 days after a successful transfer for delivery or pick up?
If incorrect information is given the bank can, according to bank statutes, re-call the amount transferred within 5 working days.
Why can tickets only be picked up in the designated oeticket centres?
The many sales outlets are licensees of the trade mark oeticket. Services (e.g. pick up of tickets ordered ) of the firm CTS Eventim Austria GmbH are only available in its own sales outlets.
Why can I not order by automatic bank debit transfer from abroad?
According to Austrian banking laws it is not possible to debit a foreign account automatically.
Why does oeticket not offer the possibility of pick up at the box office for all events?
Due to the multitude of events that oeticket offers it is for organisational and promoter specific reasons not possible for all events.
Why can’t I find the event of my choice in the category search?
Because of the merging of several systems it can happen in the first few months of the new platform that not all events are shown in the right categories. Therefore please always try the quick search or the detailed search without the use of category if you can’t find an event under category

Payment, Pickup and Delivery Methods

Open/Close section
Why do you send Tickets only by registered letter?
According to the general terms and conditions of the Post AG (national letter service) item 1.7.1 (since 1.10.2005), trade letters used to send goods that have a value of more than 7 € can only be sent via registered mail.
Why can't I choose "cash in advance" with some Events?
The „cash in advance“ option is not available when
· If you wish to buy tickets from abroad ( cash in advance is only available within Austria) or
· the event will take place in less than 3 weeks. ( Because tickets chosen for cash in advance can only be sent after the amount is booked to our account we can only guarantee that you receive your tickets in time within this period.)

If you have chosen tickets for more than one event in one order it can also happen that this option is not available. This results from the combination of events chosen.
I want to pay by credit card – where do I find the CVV / CVC verification code on my credit card? What is CVV/CVC?
These are the verification codes of the credit card known as Card Value Verification (CVV) or Card Verification Code (CVC). Both expressions mean the same, Visa uses the term CVV and Mastercard the term CVC. The verification code is an additional security feature that is required by ÖsterreichTicket when tickets are bought over the phone or the internet. This is to ensure that the person ordering has the card in his possession.

The verification code can be found on the rear of the credit card as a small number in the signature field. The CVC / CVV code is the last group of digits (the last three digits ) in the series.
Why are orders made by automatic debit transfer sent or respectively can be picked up only after 7 days?
When incorrect information is provided the bank is authorised , according to bank statutes, to withdraw the amount to be debited within 5 working days.
Why can tickets only be picked up in the designated oeticket centres?
The many sales outlets are licensees of the trade mark oeticket. Services (e.g. pick up of tickets ordered ) of the firm CTS Eventim Austria GmbH are only available in its own sales outlets.
Why can’t I order by debit transfer from abroad?
According to Austrian banking laws it is unfortunately not possible to automatically debit transfer from a foreign account.
Why doesn’t ÖsterreichTicket offer a box office pick up for all events?
Due to the numerous events that Österreich Ticket offers it is not possible to offer this service for all events for organisational and promoter specific reasons.

Questions AFTER a successful order

I ordered my tickets a long time ago but have not received them yet. Where are my tickets?
ÖsterreichTicket is a ticket agent and is not responsible for delivery. If the tickets were sent by registered mail we would ask you to contact the post office. If the tickets were lost in the registered mail you will receive duplicate tickets or if this is not possible a seat confirmation which allows admission to the event of your choice. In this case please contact us at order@oeticket.com or by telephone at +43 1 96096.

If you did not choose the registered mail possibility you will receive a confirmation of purchase as far as this is possible ( only possible with a numbered seat ticket ). We accept no liability for standing room tickets that have been lost. We therefore advice you when you buy standing room tickets to choose the delivery methods: pick up or registered mail.

If it is a print@hometicket please address your question to:
print@home

Lost / Theft / Cancellation

Open/Close section
I have lost my tickets or they have been stolen. Can you help me?
Tickets are security papers – for which no replacement can be issued in case of loss or theft. If they are positively identifiable seat number tickets we can issue a seat confirmation which will allow admission to the event of your choice. In this case please contact us at order@oeticket.com or by telephone at +43 1 96096.

If they are standing room tickets or seats that can not be positively identified ( tickets were sold to customers without customer data ) we unfortunately can not issue a replacement.

If they are print@home tickets the original ticket will be cancelled for a fee of € 5.- and a new will be issued. The old ticket then becomes invalid and will not be accepted by the electronic admission control.

Print@Home
It is not possible for me to attend an event. Can I return the tickets?
All tickets sales are fixed orders without the possibility of cancellation. If there are serious reasons ( hospitalisation, death in the family etc. - with a medical certificate ) why you can not attend the event, it is possible under certain circumstances ( series events) to exchange for another date, if this is not possible the tickets can be returned and a goodwill cancellation will be given. In this case you will receive an ÖT voucher for the ticket price excluding any delivery or other fees. A return on the day of the event is not ,under no circumstances, possible.
