For select events, you may choose "print-at-home" as your delivery method. You would then be able to print your tickets on regular computer paper directly from the confirmation email by clicking on the link provided. You may also access your tickets via the My Account section on ticketstonight.ticketforce.com. Your Print@Home ticket will be scanned for a single entrance at the event, preventing duplicate attempts to enter on the same ticket.
For a limited number events, you may be able to choose mobile delivery. You will receive a QR code for each 'ticket' which will be scanned at the entrance at the event, preventing duplicate attempts to enter on the same ticket. Mobile tickets may be easily sent to a friend, the link is under the quick reference code.
A very limited number of events may have mail as an option for delivery. We mail your tickets to the address provided within one week. We typically do not encourage mailing tickets for security reasons.
Please note that your delivery method cannot be changed after your purchase is completed.
Why are print-at-home and mobile delivery not available on all events?
These delivery methods are not available on all events because it requires the venue or promoter to secure the scanning equipment, a cost which some may not be able to justify. It is, however, becoming more common and you should see an increase in its use in the months ahead.
What age constitutes 'senior'? 'Student'?
Typically, a senior is anyone 65+ years of age, students are anyone with student ID, and children are under 12 years of age. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for specifics on your event if you are unsure.
I'm confused by a seating map when trying to book my tickets online. Why is the scanned image different from the choose-your-own seats map?
When you're choosing your own seats the stage or performance space is always 'north' (i.e. the top of your web browser). Although we make every effort to find seating maps with the same orientation, many of them face the other way. Please remember that the stage is 'north' when you're selecting your seats to get the best available line of sight!
I'm having trouble buying tickets on your website. Can you help me?
How can I be sure to get the best half-price tickets?
Ticket quantities may be limited. To ensure you have the greatest selection we recommend:
* Getting to the booth as early as possible; generally around 8:30am for Friday and Saturday.
* Reviewing the day's selections ahead of time on the infoline, or online at http://www.ticketstonight.ca/half-price-tickets
* Having an alternate show in mind if your first choice isn't available - be sure to check the posters and rack cards at the booth.
What is Tickets Tonight's refund policy?
All sales are final. Each show will have certain conditions, which should be reviewed before any purchase of tickets. Refunds are made only if an event is cancelled by the producer, presenter, or artist. Refunds are subject to the policy of the venue or producer of the event, and are net of all transaction fees.
Why am I paying a service charge?
Every ticket we sell includes a service fee, including half-price tickets. Service charges assist us in covering staffing and administration costs at Tickets Tonight. The base ticket price is returned to the producer of the show.

My friend had a hard time finding Tickets Tonight. Where, exactly, are you located?
We are located at 200 Burrard St., inside the Tourism Vancouver Visitor Centre. The Visitor Centre is located inside Waterfront Centre, which occupies an entire city block between West Cordova and Howe, Canada Place Way and Burrard Street. The Tickets Tonight booth is close to the northwest-most corner of that block.The best entrance is the north-facing door off Canada Place Way.
Please note that the Visitor Centre is not connected to the rest of Waterfront Centre on the inside of the building, but there are two doors from the outside in to the Visitor Centre. If you're coming in to Waterfront Station on the Expo or Millenium lines, you can walk directly into Waterfront Centre from the platform. Exit by the security desk in the lobby, and the Visitor Centre is around the corner on your right, just past Rogue!
The door closest to the Tickets Tonight booth is just up the stairs outside from the Tim Horton's in the Waterfront Centre food court.
What forms of payment do you accept?
Online, you may pay with credit card: American Express, MasterCard, or Visa. At our 200 Burrard Street location, we also accept Tickets Tonight Gift Certificates, debit cards, and cash for ticket purchases.
I lost my confirmation email! Can you send me another one?
Sure! Just email email@example.com with your confirmation number or the name and email address it was booked under, and we'll be happy to help.
Can I choose my own seats when I buy online?
Absolutely. Whenever we are selling a show online with reserved seating, you click on the seat map to choose your own seats. Be sure to take a long look at the full map before you click in to a section, though - you'll want to make sure you know which row is closest to the stage for optimal lines of sight!
