How do I know if my online/phone booking is confirmed?
Your e-ticket, along with your order confirmation will be emailed to you once payment has been processed. If you have paid for your order by MCB Juice or Bank Transfer, you may receive a pre-order confirmation email before your e-ticket/ order confirmation email.
What should I do if I haven’t received my tickets yet? / Where are my tickets?
If you have successfully ordered and paid for your tickets, but haven't received your e-tickets, there may be several reasons for this:
- Spam Folder. Otayo’s email may have been redirected to your email’s spam folder. If you do not find your e-tickets in your main inbox and in the spam folder, then contact Otayo for assistance.
- Incorrect email when booking. An incorrect email address may have been entered during the booking process. As a result tickets have been sent to the incorrect email address. Contact Otayo for assistance.
- Payment is being processed. Payment processing usually takes 48 hours. Please note that bank transfers made from banks besides MCB, require a longer processing time.
Contact Otayo for assistance, if you have still not received your tickets after 3 days from the time of order / payment. In case of any last minute ticket orders and urgent requests, it is always recommended to verify the processing of your booking with any of the Otayo customer service representatives.
Do I need to print my tickets for entry?
If you have ordered your tickets online or through phone bookings, you will receive an e-ticket sent to you by email. You can choose to either print the e-ticket (ensure that the details are visible and that the QR code is not distorted) or present it on your mobile device at the event.
What do I need to bring to the event?
For all events, you always need to present your ticket, either as a physical ticket, printed e-ticket or on your mobile device as a softcopy. Some events have an age restriction where you will need to produce an ID ie. for 18+ events, student events, etc.
What happens if my ticket is damaged, lost or stolen?
If your e-ticket or physical ticket has been damaged (the code cannot be scanned) or destroyed, simply reprint it from your email. If you cannot locate the email, please contact Otayo and it will be resent to you. Once printed, tickets should be stored in a safe place until the day of the event.
If your tickets have been lost or stolen, you should contact Otayo and the ticket will be annulled so that it cannot be misused by a third-party.
Should you wish to have a physical ticket reissued (instead of an e-ticket), you will be required to pay a fee of Rs 100.
Does Otayo offer any special deals or discounts?
Some events on Otayo are usually sold at special prices, such as Online-Exclusive prices, Early Bird offers, Limited Time discounts, etc. Additionally, if you sign up for an Otayo account you automatically join our loyalty program, where you will receive exclusive, member-only rewards.
If I wait to buy, will ticket prices change?
Some events are usually sold at special prices, such as Early Bird offers, Limited Time discounts, etc. You should also consider that the price of tickets at the door or on the day of the event is usually higher. If you wait until the last minute, you may end up paying much more for the same tickets by missing out on these offers or even worse, tickets may be sold out. So, we recommend that you get your tickets as soon as you can.
What happens if an event is cancelled?
If an event is cancelled by the event producer (not rescheduled), only the price paid for tickets will be refunded. Service charges, bank fees and order processing fees will not be refunded.
What if I can no longer attend an event?
If you can no longer attend an event, no refunds will be given (see Terms and Conditions). Tickets once sold are non-refundable, so once you have booked your ticket, you won’t be able to cancel, exchange it for another event or get a refund.
You are not permitted to sell, offer for sale, resell or auction tickets, though you may give the ticket to another person such as family members or friends.
Can I get a refund?
