1. It is a time saver.

You also don’t need to print the tickets just to use it: all you have to do is present your voucher through your smartphone and you’re good to go.

If you’re not sure on what to do in a particular city or country that you are in, Tiqets is also here to help.
You can open up their explore option and pin your location to see nearby attractions (and book tickets to them, of course).
5. It is a fast and simple website
One thing we really enjoy is a fast website and simple design. Tiqets has it both.
6. No more printing – your Smartphone is your ticket
They make it very clear what kind of ticket you are going to buy and what you will need when entering the venue. For all the tickets you buy with them, you only need to smartphone to enter the venue or sight.
No more printing needed!
7. Exclusive Tickets and Entrances
This portal has some exclusive entrances you can benefit from. This could be anything from a special museum in London to the Skip The Line Ticket for Louvre Museum in Paris.
Keep an eye on this one!
3. Ordering and using Tiqets (in 4 Steps)
Much like most applications available online, Tiqets is quite easy to use.
There is basically 4 steps:
- Visit Tiqets.com and pick your destination
- Book tickets for museums, attractions and entertainment
- Receive the ticket via email, SMS or app
- Show tickets on your smartphone at the venue and you’re in!
It is really no rocket science!
Again, what we really like is that your ticket is on your phone directly. No printer needed or anything alike. What a relief!
So, here again with a bit more detail to use this platform.
Browse your desired destination or open in the app your GPS to check if there are any available attractions that you can explore nearby.
Once you’re set with what you want to do, you can book a ticket.
Pay through your preferred payment method and receive the ticket instantly via SMS, email or inside the app.
Once that’s out of the way, you can now go to your destination, show your ticket, and enjoy your trip!
While this booking process is standard for Tiqets, make sure that you also check the complete details and instructions on your ticket.
Depending on the sight or activity, additional processes and manual handling may be required by the venue itself.
Again: You will have all the information beforehand and then again in your confirmation email.
If you are having troubles on using and claiming your voucher, Tiqets has real-time Customer Service support available through phone or chat.
4. Group Bookings through Tiqets
Unfortunately, bookings for large groups are currently not supported by the app.
Some venues limit the number of their visitors, thus, there are chances that ordering large amounts of tickets would not go through the checkout.
It is possible to complete multiple orders through the app. However, this is not recommended as this practice is usually frowned upon by partner venues and may risk refusal of your entry.
Better stay safe and do not do this. It could end up being expensive for you.
5. Is Tiqets safe to use?
Okay, it gets a bit nerdy here now. All you need to take away from this section is: YES; Tiqets is safe to use!
Here is the details.
As for payment processing, Tiqets has partnered with one of the world’s top payment processors, Adyen B.V. who handles everything for every transaction.
Geeky Thing to know: Tiqets do not have any access to credit card numbers and other financial information of their clients. Adyen B.V. also processes payments for top companies such as Facebook, KLM, Uber, and Vodafone.

6. Payment methods and concerns for Tiqets
So, how can you actually pay your tickets at Tiqets?
Currently, Tiqets is supporting

7. Changes, Cancellations, and Refunds
Refunds for unused tickets purchased through Tiqets will be processed on a case-to-case basis.
This is usually decided to depend on the policies of the venue in question.
In case a refund will be issued, Tiqets will request a cancellation fee which is 8% of the total order amount to cover for handling and processing costs.
For unused tickets that were canceled after it has already lapsed the date validity, unfortunately, refunds will not be granted no matter the venue policies.
For many sights, your ticket is valid for a certain time slot, such as Sagrada Familia.
Make sure you are on time. You cannot buy your ticket for 8am and then show up at 10:30am. Venues are usually not as flexible on this matter.
8. Tiqets Support
Tiqets offer 24/7 support in English.
For other languages, this may depend on availability as well as on schedules. They can be easily reached through their e-mail address or through Whatsapp.
Standard response time is one hour during operating hours via e-mail, and 10 minutes via Whatsapp.
9. Is Tiqets worth trying?
For us, it would definitely be a yes.
Many travelers are discouraged from visiting top destinations in different cities because they dread the queue and the hassle of getting their passes just for a few hours of sightseeing.
Tiqets definitely lift that problem off of travelers, providing an easy-to-use option that would not only save your time but is also accessible anytime, anywhere.
We also like how there are multiple payment options compared to other websites that only accept major credit cards. This would enable any traveler to avail of their services, no matter what payment method are easily accessible for them.
