Verified Tickets: What Are Verified Tickets?

October 10, 2019 by Vivid Seats


If you’ve ever purchased tickets to a live event, chances are you’ve stumbled across listings for “verified tickets.” Certain sites target eventgoers with their selection of verified tickets, but what is a verified resale ticket?

Are Verified Tickets Safe?

While the hype around verified tickets may be attention-grabbing, they can often be a major letdown. There have been cases of fans spending more money on verified resale tickets only to be denied entry to an event or have issues accessing their tickets. It raises the question, are verified tickets legitimate?

Are Verified Tickets More Expensive?

Verified tickets not only still run a risk for being denied entry at the venue, but they can be more expensive than tickets that offer a 100% buyer guarantee. Check out the price comparisons below, with “verified resale tickets” on the left and Vivid Seats on the right:
