What method of shipment is used?
Tickets are delivered by DHL for all events. When tickets are ordered close to the event date, the delivery method "pick up" is used. This means that you will simply have to collect them directly at the event.
When will my tickets be delivered?
Generally, tickets are delivered by DHL approximately 2-3 weeks before the event. You will receive a tracking number once your order is shipped so you can track the package on DHL’s website.
Can I provide a different delivery address?
Yes. If you need your tickets delivered to an address other than the invoice address, please send us an email with details.
Does someone need to be present when DHL delivers?
Yes. DHL delivers tickets during the daytime, so please be sure to provide a delivery address where you or a trusted party can sign for the tickets during the day.
What is the delivery charge?
The cost is based on your delivery address. The amount is automatically calculated when you enter your country on the Checkout page.
How can I collect my tickets if my delivery method is “pick-up”?
To collect your tickets at the event, you need to print your e-Voucher from your account (you will be advised by email once the voucher is ready to download, usually 1-2 weeks before the event), and present it to our pick-up team with your ID or passport. Details of the pick-up address and opening hours are printed on the e-Voucher.
I want to collect my tickets at the circuit, but the option is not available on the website.
If you need to collect your tickets at the circuit, please place your order normally and contact customer service afterwards. We can help you change your order to pick-up.
Can another person collect the tickets on my behalf?

Why do you sometimes charge handling fees?
A handling fee may be applied depending on the event chosen. Thus, in order to cover our costs and to be able to offer you optimum service, we need to apply a small percentage to the ticket price.
