Question about selling a pair of tickets individually

Postby Trynottobreathe » Tue Aug 21, 2012 3:19 am

Hi guys,

Quick question; I'm frantically trying to sell a pair of spare tickets in order to afford accommodation in the SF before BM, but response has been thoroughly flaky. I think I might have more luck selling them individually; is this an option? I've logged in to the Will Call name change page & the only option I am presented with is (you guessed it) changing the name. What should I do?

Can't split a will call pair. Best you can do is have the first person leave the second ticket in someone else's name at will call. So that's not going to work for you re selling. Maybe sell both for the price of one and try to recoup at least some money.

Thanks Melanie for the tip on getting two tix to different people at will call.

This is what I did with two friends heading to the burn on two different days. The two tix are in Kevin's name. He's going on Sunday night. I told him to take one and leave the other at will-call for David. (last names obviously included at will call.) David will show up Wednesday and get his ticket Kevin left at will call.

Though Melanie probably knows her stuff, would a moderator or someone with BMorg credentials please comment to verify this will work? If it doesn't actually work like this at will-call, I'll have to get working on this to make things right. Thanks.

You're doing it correctly - as long as Kevin leaves the second ticket in David's name, everything will be fine. David will need to bring ID showing his full name to retrieve his ticket, so don't leave it under a playa-name!
