Twickets

Recommended Posts

What’s peoples experience of twickets?  Generally it’s been pretty good for me but been trying to get a Sam Fender ticket for my daughter for past few weeks and no matter how fast I am to the alert I always seem to miss out. I think the touts have some kind of automated sniping system in place.  Very frustrating.

You just have to be quick as everyone else gets the alerts. Well worth checking back on places like ticket master as people put tickets back foor resale. Managed to get tickets for Sam Fendor & London Grammar resales recently when all the twickets alerts never turned in to tickets. It's time consuming checking twickets and back on the ticket sellers but often prodcues the results eventually. More often then not I get twickets tickets by logging in as opposed to waiting the for the alerts. You sometimes luck out.

For sought after stuff the email alerts simply aren't quick enough, luck of the draw really. It's a solid system that I trust and I've got some great tickets via that route but I've equally missed out on a few.

Twickets has been good for me but suppose it depends how in-demand the tickets are - and there is likely a slight delay between when the tickets go up to when the alert is sent out so as has already been said above, it's a good idea to keep checking the site anyway in case you time it right.

Ticketswap is also worth keeping an eye on if you're not already: https://www.ticketswap.uk/

I’ve had some great success with Twickets over the years - but as others have said relying on the email notification for the most sought after gigs can be touch and go. 
 

I’ve found it best to download the app and set a push notification up. It’s usually about a minute faster than the email coming through for me - and you can open the app direct from the notification, saving a few more all-important seconds

I like twickets, it’s great.  But, yes if a ticket is in demand it can be a challenge, and you need to be on your toes. The last one I got was for Sam Fender back in august and I ended up selling the spare through twickets too and both experiences were positive.

I will say that I think your best chance at getting a ticket will be in the 24 hours before the gig. I guess a few people have last minute cancellations, flakey mates etc,  and also, the touts are less likely to buy a ticket with such a small window in which to flip it for profit.

I've found with arena gigs checking the arena site around 2 weeks before the date should yield results. There's always a few thrown back in the hat at that point, especially production holds on the floor.

There are other reasons too, like a few people qualifying under the insurance they trick you into buying. I got 3 One Direction seats right next to the middle stage about 10 days before the show. It had been sold out for about a year prior. For WWE I've had front row and fifth row bought literally days before the event. I think in those case they were unsold meet and greets where they uncouple the tickets from the 'experience' late in the day.

I managed to get Sam Fender tickets on Twickets for his Leicester show a couple weeks ago (although I ultimately didn’t end up by going). I had the push notifications (which were a lot quicker than emails), and just tried to get tickets every time I got a notification and was free.

Is this for those in mid to late November? If so more tend to come on nearer the time as people realise they can't go. These are rescheduled from a while ago and for gigs that size that are rescheduled I've noticed as you get into the couple of weeks before it gets a bit easier. 

As mentioned before app and twitter probably best for the alerts

What confuses me is that you tickets to non sold out shows going for face value on Twickets.

Unless it’s out of the kindness of your heart for an unknown stranger, why would you buy from someone on Twickets rather get your own ticket for the same price officially? (And then sometimes go though the hassle of having to go and meet the person to get the ticket)

I reckon most people don't even look to see if it's sold out or not. I always get tempted by the below face value ones, it's dangerous sometimes to look at that part!

Yeah I always look at the below face value ones too, that’s the only reason I’d buy from Twickets if the event wasn’t sold out.

I have to admit if the price is the same between a resale on a ticket agent like ticketmaster or twickets fo a sold out show. Then I will always go with the ticket agency. Always seems a safer bet even though I have only had good experiences with twickets.

Facebook is decent too, have to meet in person which is a pain sometimes incase they flake but I got Bicep tickets a month ago for below face value (all 3 nights sold out) and they transferred me them on DICE. That's a good point actually, if its on DICE app be sure to join the waiting list

The sam fender Newcastle tickets on ticketmaster say you need to come with the lead booker and names are printed on ticket , how does that work for Twickets as I’m worried about buying any as I’m guessing these will be invalid ?

bit at the top says twickets is official resale partner. hardly anywhere checks anyway so your all good 🙂

Does the app work for you guys when you click on a notification? For me, it freezes every time. Tried deleting and re-installing, still the same. 

No, does exactly the same for me. Then by the time I’ve got to the tickets after closing and reopening, the ticket has gone.

Had a mare with Fender tickets the past three weeks, there must have been over 50 odd listings and I’ve not got near any, even listings that have gone up through the night. There’s got to be bots at work… sheet the demand would have dropped the more tickets sold. Hey ho!
