SOLD: 1 Holiday Ticket $370; Enter with Us?

Postby atom platypus » Tue Jul 02, 2013 2:28 pm

Hy everyone,

I got myself stuck in some sort of situation...

We are 4 people going to the Man for the first time this year. Until last week we only had two tickets... So I met this guy that is living in the same city as me and was able to sell us 4 Holiday Tickets for a total of 2000$... I thought better be save, cause we already booked the whole trip, and get rid of the additional two or bring the ones already bought into STEP.... So he made the name change and I payed for the tickets... So far so good.. But... I was to fast...

Because meanwhile my girlfriend got a mail from STEP and bought two tickets as well. So now comes my problem... We are 4 people with 8 Tickets...

So what I want to do is sell the Holiday-Tickets (Will Call) for the price I payed (500$ / Ticket (instead of the 650$ he payed in the Holiday sale) - comes as a package, meaning they cannot be sold separately) because we have already spent (and will spend) so much money on the trip that we count every cent we save...
For all of us it will be one of the biggest and most expensive trips so far (5 weeks California with the peak at Burning Man) but its just too good not to do it...

And yes, a second name change on the tickets is possible, already checked that...

[3 tickets now sold, one remaining.]

So I really hope one of you will be able to pay these 2000$ $370 for the remaining ticket - otherwise I will put the 4 normally bought ones into STEP but for our financial situation it would definitely be better the other way... :wink:
I am located in Switzerland but will be around LA/LV/SF from the beginning of August...

Just send me a PM or Email or reply to this thread if you are interested or need further information...

Thanks a lot and see you in the dust...

I hope you can get all 4 tickets sold at once, otherwise putting those tickets back into STEP I think would be good to do sooner rather than later for another 4 people. Good luck!

But there's four additional regular tickets that will if I'm reading correctly. Dilemma is 4 regular tickets and 4 holiday tickets with only 4 people in this op's group that need tickets. They'd be able to get more bang for their buck selling the holiday tickets and keeping the regular priced ones.

Just a friendly word of advice.... I also purchased holiday tickets from a private seller, and having changed them into my name, when I tried to initiate a second name change (as an experiment), the website states quite clearly that only one name change is allowed and does not let you continue with the application. My advice is get a second opinion on whether a second name change is possible.

I did... I wrote a mail to the burning man ticket support and thats what came back:

Your are able to do a second name change on Holiday Sale tickets. Our ticketing vendor will just need to confirm with the original ticket holder that this is acceptable. It is also possible to make two name changes on tickets purchased from STEP.

1 Holiday Ticket 500$

Postby atom platypus » Wed Aug 14, 2013 9:25 pm

Here comes an update:
We found a solution for our dilemma...

But: we now still have ONE SPARE TICKET (one of the 4 holiday tickets).
So if someone is willing to join us through will call that would be great.
We could meet somewhere if you want, so you are safe that we really have this one ticket.
We are traveling with an RV from LA to SF, Redwoods and then heading to BRC. We will be in SF between 19th and 22nd then go up North to Redwoods and after that heading East on the 25th.
Then we could meet somewhere again close to the Black Rock Desert and you could follow us to will call...
Just let me know how your plans are and we can talk about that.

We bought them for 500$ and would give it to you for the same price $370. <-- update
We don't want to gain money we just want to cover our expenses cause this trip costs us a fortune and we can need every penny to be able to do this once in a lifetime travel...

Thanks and dusty greets

Oh I forgot:
I try to go to the internet as much as possible to check your PMs or replies but since we are traveling I might not be able to do that all the time.
I am giving my best and will answer to everyone who is writing me in whatever way. Thank you so much...

Did you already transfer the other 3 tickets to a new name in will call?
Coz it can be bananas crazy in line and at the gate for hours and it would be hard to stay connected to another vehicle in line....
Still if you know how to transfer it to my friends name before it might work...

I was on the other end of the first deal for the 4 tickets with atom platypus, he was very quick to reply and gave me all the necessary information. Unfortunately there was a mix-up and I got the order of his original tickets instead. To anyone considering this ticket offered, atom platypus was an attentive seller with attention to detail. *Edit: The jist is he was great to do business with!
