Every sold ticket is automatically insured against cancellation
The Hague, 7 September 2018 – SimpleTicket is the first Dutch ticket provider to integrate Event Protect’s cancellation insurance into its platform. This allows SimpleTicket to automatically insure each sold ticket against cancellation of the event.
With Event Protect, SimpleTicket organizers offers the most complete cancellation insurance, which covers many causes beyond the control of the organizer. In the event that an event is canceled for a reason that is covered, SimpleTicket and Event Protect ensure full claim handling of ticket buyers. A ticket buyer has the money returned to the bank account within 7 – 14 days after the claim has been submitted.
“Event Protect fits into our strategy to better protect organizers and ticket buyers,” says Desmond Koorn, director SimpleTicket. “By offering Event Protect as an integrated solution, ticket buyers are assured of a refund in case an event is unexpectedly canceled. The full purchase price including service and payment costs will then be refunded. ”
If Event Protect is enabled, sold tickets are insured in real-time. “Against a sharp premium of up to 2.5% on the ticket turnover. A rate that matches our competitive ticketing rates. The organizer always has the choice to enable Event Protect or not, we are already seeing that many events are choosing Event Protect “, says Koorn.
