Order Time Limit:

whelanslive.com will not be held responsible for any inconvenience or loss incurred in cases where the customer failed to complete the order within the maximum time limit allowed, either per individual page or for the entire order.
If you do not complete your order within the specified time limit, the tickets you have selected are released back into the pool and become available for other customers to buy. This rule is common on all ticketing websites and is required to correctly manage sale of tickets for high-demand events.
In the case of high-demand events, it is possible that all tickets will have been sold to other customers in the meantime and you will be unable to secure tickets to the event when you restart the purchase process.
It is the customer’s responsibility to ensure that they complete their order within the specified time limit.

In such cases, whelanslive.com will automatically offer you the “Best Available” seats associated with the ticket price you have chosen. In this way, you are assigned the seats with the best location and view available at that point in time.
This approach is standard in the ticketing industry and is needed to allow whelanslive.com to sell extremely high volumes of tickets within a matter of minutes for concerts by very popular acts.

Seating Location:

whelanslive.com offers no guarantee that it will be possible to seat all members of a party in a single location within a venue for a given event.
If a restriction exists on the location of seating, you will be made aware of this restriction irrespective of whether you are choosing your own seats or having ‘Best Available’ seats assigned by the system.
At this point you can decide to accept the seats even though they are not located together or instead opt not to continue with the ticket order.

Ordering Tickets for More Than One Event:

Unfortunately, it is not possible to buy tickets for more than one event as part of a single order. You can place more than one order if you wish to buy tickets for more than one event.
Please note that if you choose postal delivery, the standard postage fee will be charged for each order.
