The Essex-based ticket insurance provider is going global, most recently launching in Italy in partnership with Bookingshow
By IQ on 13 Feb 2017
TicketPlan, a UK-based provider of insurance cover to ticket agencies, venues and festivals, has launched in Italy in partnership with local primary ticketer Bookingshow.
The company’s entry to the Italian market follows successful launches last year in Denmark and the Netherlands.
All claims in Italy will be administered via TicketPlan’s multilingual, multi-currency refund application platform and handled by its refund centre in Britain.
“The Italian regulatory requirements are quite specific, so it was absolutely crucial that our proposition met the criteria”
TicketPlan Group CEO Graham Berg comments: “We are delighted to announce our partnership with Bookingshow, [which is] one of the leading ticketing companies in Italy.
“As always, the launch of this new facility in Italy followed extensive research and operational effort. The Italian regulatory requirements are quite specific, and it was absolutely crucial that our proposition fully met the appropriate criteria.
“TicketPlan is the accepted benchmark brand for ticket insurance and protection in the UK – and increasingly within other overseas markets – and we are always aware that many ticketing organisations have entrusted us with a vital part of their overall customer service.”
