Is today the last day of being able to start the payment plan?

Posted 20 February 2012 - 06:27 PMIt's the last day that you can buy at Early Bird Prices - RDB tweeted earlier.
I assume they'll get rid of the payment plan as well?

Cheers for the reminder, just bought mine
It's the last day that you can buy at Early Bird Prices - RDB tweeted earlier.
Posted 20 February 2012 - 08:46 PMNope the payment plan will continue for a bit, but will just reduce the months and increase the amounts..
For your information, the price for adult ticket is going up tomorrow by £10 for Thursday entry and £5 for Friday entry. there will also be a student ticket for £170. The payment plan will continue after today, but at new prices
Why not get on board the payment plan now? pay a sixth of the total (early bird if you buy today) ticket price now (plus the total booking fee) and then pay the rest over the following 5 months. and at no additional cost... will end up costing exactly the same as if you'd bought it in one go
Posted 20 February 2012 - 10:43 PMStill debating to go for it 10 pound cheaper or wait and see!!
Posted 04 March 2012 - 12:11 AMI got mine in just in time! Payment plans are such a good idea.
Posted 14 March 2012 - 04:10 PMJust looked into this, as my partner and I would really love to go to Bestival, but REALLY can't afford it!
The total repayment price comes to £195.20. I appreciate postage and booking fee are included, but that's £15.20 above the £180 ticket price. Is this correct?
Posted 14 March 2012 - 04:47 PMYeah its the same price to buy it outright or to use the payment plan.
Posted 14 March 2012 - 04:54 PMYeah, but it's cheaper if you do the payment plan because the payments are, like, spread out (that's what I told myself anyway and it seemed to work for me!).
Posted 14 March 2012 - 08:24 PMSo the booking fee and postage amount to £15.20, yeah? Sounds decidely steep!
Posted 14 March 2012 - 11:58 PMIt is steep, its a £10 booking fee, but im sure the postage is combined for how many tickets you buy.
Posted 14 March 2012 - 11:59 PMMost larger festivals (Glasto excluded) are around 10% booking fee plus postage.
Special Delivery is just over £5 these days alone.
Posted 15 March 2012 - 10:51 AMI think most gigs even are around 10/12% booking fee, just seems less obviously with gig tickets . (At least for academy/arena sized venues.)
Posted 19 March 2012 - 12:16 PMOn Bestival's Facebook site today....
"If you haven't got your tickets yet and want to spread payments for Bestival tickets over 6 months, tomorrow is the last day to do so. On Wednesday, it will switch to a 5 month payment plan x"
Posted 19 March 2012 - 01:12 PMOh thats decent of them just switching down the months!!! Still not fully decided :S I am leaning towards it but trying persuade a mate still, hoping the headliner impresses her on Wednesday
Posted 29 April 2012 - 09:05 PMCouldn't find anywhere else to say and didn't wanna start a new thread
But I got my tickets All fully paid up
Posted 01 May 2012 - 12:48 PMDoes anyone know whether once you've started a payment plan you can cancel it and get any form of refund? I've paid the £50 deposits for two tickets and the first monthly instalment of £30 each - so £160, but it's looking decidely bleak financially, and I can't see any way we're going to be able to keep the payments going. I've emailed Ticketline and asked the question, but had no response. I'm wondering whether I could get a full refund of what I paid, or failing that if I simply cancel the direct debit what the outcome will be. Anyone seen any information on this?
Posted 01 May 2012 - 01:26 PMAm afraid the money paid is non-refundable.
Best option is to continue paying it off somehow, then sell the tickets once you have received them.
It's not a direct debit either, it's a re-occuring card payment so you would need to cancel that card.
