7. Tickets, payments and refunds

We allow you to purchase tickets for events from third party resellers (“Sellers”) through Kidadl. You may make a purchase at any time by clicking through to the link displayed on Kidadl. Once the order has been accepted and your card has been charged you will receive an email containing details of your order and e-tickets where applicable.

We provide this part of the Service as an agent for the Sellers except in rare circumstances. When we are not acting as agent for a Seller we will make it clear to you that this is the case.

When you purchase tickets from a Seller, we will process your payment on behalf of the Seller, but you will form a contract directly with the Seller, and we will have no liability to you except for our fraud or negligent misstatement. We pass the payment through to the Seller on your behalf, less our commission and related fees that we are entitled to deduct.

When you request information about tickets we may temporarily reserve them for a brief period of time in order to allow you to make your purchase. If you do not complete your purchase before the time is up, we cannot guarantee that those tickets will still be available for purchase after the temporary reservation has expired.

You must make payment for any tickets via a debit or credit card that you own or are authorised to use. You will be prompted to enter your card details in the sign up process and during the checkout process.

Once you have entered your card details, our third party payment processor may store these details securely for future use with your permission. You acknowledge that your details may be subject to online verification and fraud checks, and it is not our responsibility if you fail to pass these checks.

We reserve the right to modify or remove tickets at any time. For example, we may change our prices or remove a ticket or event from sale at any time without notice to you. We shall not be liable to you or any third party for any modification, price change, suspension or discontinuance of tickets that previously featured on Kidadl.

Cancellation Policy

Nothing in these Terms shall limit your legal rights but you should note that the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations contain an exemption to contracts for leisure activities (such as the sale of tickets) hence do not apply to purchases made via Kidadl.

As a result, we do not offer refunds on tickets purchased through Kidadl unless:

a)      There is an error with the price we calculated for your order, in which case we will contact you and you can either pay or be refunded the difference in price, or cancel your order and we will provide a full refund.

b)      There is a change in the nature of the event you have booked to see to the extent that it is no longer reasonable to describe it as the same event that you originally booked for.

c)       The event has been canceled by the Seller

If the date, time or place of an event is changed and you are no longer able to make it, we cannot guarantee that you will receive a refund but we will assist you by coordinating with the Seller on your behalf.

We will only issue refunds via the method of payment used to purchase the tickets. If we refund you for the tickets you have purchased, you will have thirty days in which to notify us that you have rejected the refund, but if you do not do so, you will be deemed to have accepted the refund in full and final settlement of any and all claims relating to your purchase of the relevant tickets.

At Kidadl we are passionate about providing great value for families. We know how important getting a great deal is. We work really hard to ensure we get you the lowest ticket price available.

All our ticketing partners sign up and agree to the Lowest Price Guarantee. So we are very proud to be able to offer you the Lowest Price Guarantee. You can book your tickets on the Kidadl platform with confidence.
