West End Booking Fees Drop by Half

Tourists on London theatre breaks will be pleased to hear that the amount of money charged by booking agents for making transactions on tickets to West End productions has dropped drastically over the past 12 months, in some case falling by as much as 50 per cent.

In 2012, the average additional fee charged on theatre bookings on top of the price of the ticket was £1.96, although this has now been reduced to just £1.12, The Stage reports.

Certain booking fees in the commercial sector had been as high as £2.21 last year, although these have now dropped to an average of £1.06.

Some agencies, including See Tickets and Nimax, are now charging no additional costs on the quoted ticket price.

Several smash hit shows are currently on offer across Theatreland, include the likes of Burn the Floor, The Book of Mormon, We Will Rock You and Billy Elliot, which is why anyone planning a visit to the capital will surely be delighted at the news that booking fees are now on the decline.
