We understand that CarFest tickets are in high demand and that buying them can be stressful so here at CarFest HQ we’ve worked on some handy tips to guide you through the experience.
Tips for buying tickets
This will appear at some stage on the initial selection page and means that this particular ticket is sold out at that time. However, ticket buyers have 6 minutes and 50 seconds to complete their transaction and records show that for a variety of reasons a number of people do not complete their transaction. If the transaction is not completed the tickets they had selected will go back on general sale. This means some tickets will appear as ‘unavailable’ and then reappear as ‘available’ at a later stage.
Tickets for CarFest are in huge demand and the number that don’t complete is relatively small, therefore we advise you to purchase what you can, rather than wait as you could lose out altogether.
Our system will hold your tickets for you as you go through the buying process, so once you’ve selected your tickets, they will be reserved for you for 6 minutes and 50 seconds (you will see a timer on the pages as you go through).
Ok, the first step! Select which tickets you'd like to purchase here, and click 'continue'. If you've selected camping tickets, you'll then proceed to the 'camping extras' tab, where you can select caravan/campervan permits if you wish, and also will need to tell us how many free parking passes you need.
After this, or if you've selected day or weekend without camping tickets, you'll proceed to the 'charity' tab, where you can choose to donate to UK Children's Charities if you're purchasing free under 6 tickets.
One more 'continue' to click, and you're through to payment!
9 handy tips that'll increase your chances of getting tickets.
Like all tickets, CarFest permits are in high demand. If permits are all sold out by the time you get to ticket purchase stage, we recommend that you discuss in advance whether you still wish to purchase camping tickets or whether you would rather day visitor tickets. This way, if permits are sold out, but camping tickets and day tickets are still available, you know that you can buy those tickets and won't lose out.
Note - Permits must be purchased with your weekend camping tickets, and can not be bought separately.
