I bought tickets for an event that has been cancelled. Am I entitled to a refund?

  • If your event is cancelled the ACCC expects that you will receive a refund or other remedy, such as a credit note or voucher, in most circumstances.
  • If the event is cancelled due to government restrictions, this impacts your rights under the consumer guarantees. However, you may also have other remedies outside of the Australian Consumer Law.
  • For example, you may be entitled to a refund under the terms and conditions of your ticket.
  • If you had a right to a refund under these terms and conditions at the time you purchased your ticket, businesses are not permitted to change the terms at a later time to deny you a refund.
  • Depending on your circumstances, you may also have other rights under common law, contract or state legislation.
  • You should contact the business directly to request a refund or other remedy such as a credit note or voucher.
  • If you receive a credit note or voucher, it should have an expiration date which is long enough to allow you to use the credit note or voucher.

I bought tickets for an event but no longer wish to attend due to concerns about COVID-19. Am I entitled to a refund?

  • If you no longer wish to attend an event due to concerns about COVID-19, this may be treated as a ‘change of mind’. You should contact the event organiser to see if you are entitled to a remedy such as full or partial refund, credit note or voucher.
  • If you have a health condition that means you are at higher risk, you should contact the event organiser to see if they will offer you a refund or a voucher for a later date.
  • Given the exceptional circumstances, the ACCC encourages all businesses to treat consumers fairly, including by offering refunds as a goodwill gesture
