Anyone who buys tickets, season passes, coupons, products and packages or registers an event/activity through BookTes.com, therefore, accepts the agreement below with SC Booktes Media Ticket System SRL, the parent company of BookTes.com and all intellectual property associated with BookTes.com.

Informative note: to make it easier to go through the document, we will call the ticket, season pass, coupon, product and package hereinafter with the term ticket or tickets for the plural form.

How it works and the ticket delivery policy

BookTes.com is an online guide to events, activities and a ticketing platform. Buyers can purchase tickets online at BookTes.com or through any BookTes.com partner store. Orders placed on the website www.booktes.com or through any partner store are delivered by a confirmation e-mail received at the moment of completing the ticket order on the e-mail address of the account from which the order is made or the e-mail address indicated by the account holder. The ordered tickets are sent in PDF format by e-mail or SMS after completing the order. Each ticket will be assigned a separate PDF. For example, if a Customer buys 7 tickets, he will receive 7 individual PDFs.

Access to the event/activity is based on tickets sent by email. Tickets will have a unique QR code that will be presented at the access point being marked as used by scanning. Each ticket allows access for a single person or multiple people, as the case may be. This information will always be indicated on the ticket. The ticket can only provide access once per event/activity regardless of the number of access gates.

Ticket purchase policy

  • Tickets purchased on www.booktes.com website or through BookTes.com partner stores are only refundable in the exceptional situations described below in the Return Policy.
  • Tickets may only be exchanged in the exceptional circumstances described below in the Return Policy.
  • Tickets cannot be transferred to a third party person except to close family members and friends of the Customer and, in such cases, never have a value higher than the initial purchase price. Purchased tickets are intended for use by the named Buyer or family or close friends. Tickets cannot be resold at a value higher than the initial purchase price. If BookTes.com finds out that there are Ticket resold for commercial winnings at a price higher than the original purchase price, BookTes will cancel the Ticket without a refund to the Buyer and the Ticket will not be valid for entry.
  • Customers are advised not to buy BookTes tickets resold through so-called secondary ticketing websites (such as Online Ticket Shop, Viagogo, Getmein, Stubhub or other similar websites) or through online sales websites such as be eBay, will not be valid for entry or will be cancelled by BookTes if BookTes finds out that the Ticket has been resold. In some countries, the resale of tickets is prohibited by law.
  • BookTes may require the Customer to prove that he is the original Buyer of the Ticket at the event/activity point of entry by presenting an Identity Card, such as a passport, driving license, national identity card and/or presenting the original credit card/debit used to purchase tickets. If the Client purchases more than one ticket for the same event/activity, then all members of the Client's party participating in the event/activity must enter at the same time as the Client.
  • It is the responsibility of the Customers to protect their tickets from loss or theft. BookTes is not responsible for replacing lost or stolen tickets and does not grant refunds for lost or stolen tickets. This applies to electronically tickets as well as printed tickets on paper. If a Customer's e-ticket is copied/stolen (for example, by breaking email or delivering to an e-mail address shared with someone) and the Ticket is used and scanned before that Customer enters the event/activity, Customer access will be denied because the tickets were validated at the time of first use. The Customer will not receive any refund in this case. Customers are strongly advised to protect their electronic tickets with the same care and attention as they would protect a physically printed ticket from theft.
  • In most cases, the full payment for the ticket is made at the time of purchase, and the ticket is sent to the Customer by e-mail shortly after the end of the purchase. If the payment is made fraudulently using a lost/stolen credit/debit card or if the credit/debit card is used without the permission of the cardholder, BookTes reserves the right to cancel such purchased tickets without refund to the buyer who committed the fraud.

Ticket use policy and participation in the event/activity

  • It is the Customer's responsibility to check for restrictions on entry to the event/activity, such as age restrictions or dress code restrictions, which were also reported before purchasing a Ticket from the website. BookTes will not be held liable and will not reimburse the value of tickets if entry to the event/activity is refused by the Organizer for any reason, including, but not limited to, non-compliance with the dress code, non-compliance with age restrictions, uncontrolled behaviour, dangerous behaviour, disruptive behaviour, illicit behaviour that results in the denial of access to the event or activity by the Organizer of that event/activity or the Venue Management where the event/activity is held.
  • All tickets are issued in accordance with the Rules and Regulations of the event/activity and the venue event/activity. It is the Customer's responsibility to abide by these Rules and to become familiar with the Rules and Regulations before purchasing a ticket.
  • In all cases, the Promoter and the Management of the event/activity venue reserve the right to refuse access to the event/activity and reserve the right to perform security checks at any time to ensure the safety and security of the event/activity.

  • Many venues operate a strict "No Readmission" policy, which means that if the Customer leaves the venue of the event/activity during the event/activity, he/she will not be allowed to return to the venue using the original ticket. It is the Customer's responsibility to familiarize himself with the event/activity Readmission Policy before coming to the event/activity. No refunds will be given to Customers who leave the venue during an event/activity and will be denied readmission due to the "No Readmission" policy.
  • Venue Management or Organizer may restrict what items may be brought to the event/activity, including, but not limited to, food, beverages, cameras, video and audio recording equipment, chairs, selfie sticks, and items considered illegal, hazardous, dangerous weapons or objects that can be considered weapons. BookTes will not be held liable and will not reimburse the value of tickets if entry into the event/activity is denied or if a Customer is excluded by the Organizer or Venue Management due to bringing or attempting to bring a restricted item into that venue. In addition, BookTes accepts no responsibility or liability for items confiscated by the Organizer or Venue Management.
  • For events/activities that the Customer fails to reach, BookTes.com will not return the value of the tickets.
  • It is the Client's responsibility to participate in the event/activity on time. Some venues and Organizers will refuse entry to delayed Customers. No refunds will be issued for delays.
  • Many events/activities will have an exact time for the admission of the "last Client", ie the last moment when a Client can enter the event/activity. The last moment of admission is generally earlier than the closing time of the event/activity. It is the Client's responsibility to take note of the last moment of admission to the venue. If a Client is denied entry to an event/activity because he arrives at the event/activity after the last moment of admission, BookTes will not issue a refund.
  • Most venues and Organizers prohibit unauthorized use of photographic and video recording equipment. Please consult the Organizers and Venue Management before arriving at the event/activity.
  • By purchasing a Ticket through BookTes, you agree to be photographed, filmed or recorded by the Organizer, Venue Management or any third party operating on behalf of the Organizer, the venue or in the immediate vicinity of the entrance to the venue.

Return / cancellation policy

IMPORTANT! The purchase of tickets is subject to the exceptions of GEO 34/2014, in accordance with art. 16 lit. l) of the normative act mentioned above.

All purchases and bookings made on BookTes.com are final and non-refundable. In the event of a cancellation or a request to change the reservation, BookTes and the service providers are not obliged to comply with these requests, and the full amount paid will be withheld by the provider. Refunds, if any, are provided at the sole discretion of BookTes and service providers.

BookTes acts as a ticket distributor and therefore cannot be held responsible for returning the value of access tickets. Consequently, the entire responsibility towards the Users in connection with the respective events/activities rests with the Event/Activity Organizers. Organizers assume full responsibility to ticket Buyers for any delay, postponement, cancellation or any aspect related to the event or activity for tickets sold through the BookTes.com platform. The Organizers also assume responsibility for the conduct of events and activities and the conditions in which they take place in accordance with public communications and in accordance with the relevant legislation and any restrictions on events/activities of third parties involved in organizing by authorities. At the same time, the Organizers have the right to make minor changes to the program or distribution.

In case of returns, the price printed on the ticket will be returned in full.

In case of cancellation, postponement or major changes to the program or distribution, no other adjacent expenses (transportation, accommodation, delivery charges or other charges) will be refunded. Certain events/activities on the website have the commission (regardless of its nature) added over the ticket price. BookTes will be able to return in case of cancellation of the order only the ticket price and not the fees related to the payment. These commissions will be signalled on the event/activity page until the payment page which is the last step in the purchase process. All commissions will be displayed and will only be charged if they are displayed. The value of the tickets will be refunded to the valid account from which the initial payment was made. This also applies to debit/credit card payments as well as PayPal payments. BookTes will work with the event/activity Organizer in question to reimburse the amounts paid for the tickets purchased by you but does not offer any guarantee in this regard and has no obligation to indemnify the Ticket Buyer in the absence of a prior agreement with the event/activity Organizer. BookTes must have confirmation from the Organizer that it can make cash returns. If BookTes has already paid the amount in advance to the event or activity Organizer, the Organizer is responsible for returning the value of purchased tickets. If the payment has not been made in advance to the Organizer, then BookTes will refund the money after Organizer confirmation.

Ticket booking with exclusive cash payment

BookTes offers the possibility to book tickets for a limited period of time and pay them in cash. The booking time differs from event to event and from activity to activity because it is set at the request of the Organizer. The choice of the booking option is made on the payment page by selecting the desired chain of stores through which you want to pay for the booking. After completing the booking steps, you will receive an email and/or an SMS with the instructions to claim your booking as well as details about the time available to claim the booking.

The booking payment must be made during the time communicated by BookTes otherwise, it will expire and automatically the reserved tickets will be cancelled.

Management fees that are added over the value of tickets (on the website and in partner stores)

The related fees charged for ticket sales are, where applicable, added over the ticket price. These fees do not always represent the BookTes commission. Some Organizers choose this practice and it is not related in any way to the wish of BookTes. As a result, in some cases, the ticket price will be higher than the one communicated on media channels. These fees will be displayed and signalled on BookTes before the tickets are paid.
