Buying Tickets Online

As a licenced ticket broker in New York for several years now I am smart enough to know that we are not the only game in town. Heck were not even the only broker in our neighborhood. Now I know that buying tickets can be difficult and at times very confusing. With all the different website's out there how do you know who is legitimate and who is not? What I tell people on the phone is that even if you don't order from me to do your homework. Try to find a company that has a telephone number so that you can actually speak to someone.

I can't tell you how many people say that they called Applause because they knew that by calling us they were speaking to a live person. I also tell people that sometimes when other companies quote you a price be careful as usually it is much higher when you go to check out. Trust me. It happens all the time.Now besides the two things I mentioned another thing to be on the lookout for is companies that offer "Zone Seating". Basically what that means is that you are paying all that money and not getting exact seat locations.

True the theatres in New York are very small but if you are going to trust someone you don't know you with your money you deserve to know what you are buying. Tickets are expensive nowadays. You are entitle to get what you pay for. Now there are legitimate companies out there. In fact I would say 75% or more of the brokers in the country are not only licenced but are there to help you get the best deal you possibly can. If they didn't then you would never buy from them again right? Look the point is whether you go thru Applause or anybody else take your time. It's your dollar after all.
