Refund for badge and event tickets.

Posted by ewamba

 I have a friend who at the last minute is unable to go to Gen Con. She has a four day badge and many event tickets. She will be unable to get to Indianapolis but would like to know if there's anyway to get a refund for her badge and events. The only information she can find right now is that she has to go to the customer service desk on site, but she will not be able to  make it to Gen Con at all. Is there anyway she can get a refund without having to be there?

I think we are past the point of badge refunds.

 yeah. I saw that. They're supposed to be a place where you can refund event tickets for credit on the website. But she hasn't able to find it. Any idea where that would be?

No one there I'd expect. The offices are closed for them to come to Indy. The return tickets for credit on the website is only available until the cutoff--that's when tickets are printed. If you are nearby, she can give the tickets, not badge, just tickets, to you and you can turn them in, and she will get a refund to the original method of payment less the 5 percent fee.

If her tickets and badge are will call I am reasonably certain she is out of luck.

I've heard from a few people on Facebook in this same situation. The best I could advise them is to email Customer Service and hope they're lenient when they get to it after the con. They're probably out of luck though.

Anyone know if there is a way to transfer your badge to another person?  I have a friend in a similar situation but he found someone that wants to go that doesn't have a ticket.

Badges are non-transferrable per the terms of service.

Event tickets can be used by anyone with a valid badge.

Not if you fell ill over this past weekend and are just now getting out of the hospital and find that you can't go. I'm only an hour away and I'm not sure if I can even pick up my badge let alone attend. Sometimes stuff happens that might actually call for a refund if someone truly can't attend for a good reason other than just not able to go.

Yes, that's usually the way it works.  If a badge was mailed and never delivered, it should have been returned to Gen Con and they should have it available at Will Call.

Do tell them at Will Call that it would be with the returned badge packets.

I think they mean policy wise.  It doesn't matter if you have a good reason not to go.  You're unfortunately past the point of no return and will just have to eat the loss.
