Given all my comments here previously about credit card surcharges, and todays earlier comments regarding the £11 per ticket service charges with Ticketmaster.co.uk, I thought I’d give a quick mention to Leopardstown Race course.
I booked 4 tickets online with them today for the December 26th meeting – one of their most popular meetings for the whole year. And their service charge was €2.54. Total. For 4 tickets. Not per ticket.
Nice one. How can these people, whose raison d’etre isn’t selling tickets but to run race meetings, manage to charge less for a service than Ticketmaster who are the experts in selling the damn things?
