Changing the name on one Will Call ticket.

Post by venereal » Thu Aug 06, 2015 10:02 pm


I'm buying one ticket from a friend of a friend (I trust this friend and her judgement, but will still be getting a copy of their license, etc.) and they are at Will Call. I looked through the ticketing FAQ but it wasn't entirely clear. Will my seller be able to change just one ticket to my name? How exactly does that page on Ticketfly work? Will it ask for my email so I'll have some sort of confirmation to show up with?

I just want to make sure to get this all sorted out. We can meet up to do the exchange in person, but I just want to make sure I'm doing everything I need to to not only stay safe, but to not arrive missing a piece of information I need.

Thank you.

You cannot split a Will Call order except at Will Call on the playa. The person you're purchasing the tickets from would have to arrive first, pick up their tickets, then put one back at Will Call under your name (all done while they stand at the window, they don't have to get in & out of line). The only way a Will Call order can be transferred to another name via Ticketing or Ticketfly is if it's for the entire order.

I would ask the person for a copy of the Will Call order, and a photocopy of their ID. After that it's all in the amount you think they can be trusted. Since you have mutual friends you're in a much safer place that way, but go with your gut.

I'm locking the thread since the questions been answered, but you are free to PM me or any Mod if you have further questions.
