Member organisations of LPA are bound by the LPA Ticketing Code of Practice (the Code). The LPA Complaints Handling & Dispute Resolution Policy explains to consumers our procedures for handling complaints and resolving disputes.
What Complaints and Disputes are Covered by this Policy?
The formal procedures set out in this Policy apply to complaints about matters covered by the Code from consumers. For example, you can make a complaint under this Policy if you think one of our members has not complied with one of their obligations under the Code.
How Can Consumers Make a Complaint?
Before making a complaint to either an LPA Member or to LPA directly, we recommend reading p.11 - 14 of the Consumer Code. This explains the circumstances under consumers may be entitled to a refund or exchange for a ticket purchase.
