These are the terms and conditions (the "Terms") on which we facilitate bookings for the purchase of tickets for events and performances through a platform (the "Coras Services") accessible on our website or on the websites of our partners (the "Websites"). Please read these terms carefully before you submit your order to us. By using the Websites and/or the Coras Services you acknowledge and agree to the Terms.

We are Corasdotio Limited, a company registered in Ireland and trading under the name "Coras". Our company registration number is 572005 and our registered office is at 32 Stephen's Lane, Dublin 2. Our registered VAT number is IE3394316KH.
If we have to contact you we will use the contact details that you provided to us.
The Coras Services provide an online booking platform through which you can purchase tickets for events, performances and any other additional services provided by third parties organisers (the "Organiser"). While we reserve the right to set event ticket or booking fees, by providing the Coras Services, we act as an intermediary and mere facilitator between you and the Organiser. We do not set the event terms between you and the Organiser or any other conditions of purchase, or any other matters related to the events, performances or any other additional services provided by the Organiser. We are not the Organiser and merely provide a facility for you to purchase tickets.
By purchasing a ticket through the Coras Services you enter into a direct (legally binding) contractual relationship with the Organiser with which you make a reservation, booking or purchase a service (as applicable). From the point at which you purchase your ticket, we act solely as an intermediary between you and the Organiser.
In order to use the Coras Services, you may be required to create and/or log into an account on the Websites. This is so that we and our partners can provide you with easy access to your personal section of the Websites. You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and account, and you are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your password or account.
You are entitled at any stage to delete the account you have on the Websites. To exercise this right, you will need to contact us or our partners on the email addresses provided at registration.
To purchase tickets for certain events or performances available through the Coras Services or the Websites, you may be required to be over the age of eighteen (18) or twenty one (21) (as applicable). It is your responsibility to check that you qualify to purchase the tickets and to attend the event or performance for which you purchased the ticket. Coras accepts no responsibility should you be refused entry on account of your age into any event or performance for which tickets were purchased through the Coras Services.
When you make an order to purchase a ticket for an event or performance through the Coras Services or through the Websites or the services of our partners, this is deemed to be an offer to the Organiser. We will communicate your offer to the Organiser who will review and verify ticket availability and your payment details will be processed by a third party electronic payment services provider (the "Payment Services Provider").
When ticket availability has been confirmed and payment for the purchase has been processed by the Payment Services Provider, we will issue a purchase confirmation email to you on behalf of the Organiser.
The Organiser's acceptance of your offer will take place when you receive the purchase confirmation email from us, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and the Organiser.
If the Organiser is unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this via email. However, it is possible that your payment will be processed even if there are no tickets for your selected event or performance available. If a charge is made to your card and the Organiser is unable to accept your offer, we will provide you with a full refund for your purchase.
We are not responsible or liable for the non-delivery of emails or the delivery of emails into your "spam" or "junk mail" folders or other communications from us or for failures in the payment collection or invoicing functionality of the Coras Services which are caused by technical matters beyond our control.

Unauthorised commercial advertisements, affiliate links and other forms of solicitation may be removed from your account without notice and may result in termination of your privileges. Appropriate legal action will be taken for any illegal or unauthorised use of the Coras Services. You are prohibited from selling, trading or otherwise transferring your Coras account to another party.
The prices for the tickets purchased through the Coras Services are displayed on the Websites. These prices will include any applicable booking fees charged per ticket. Depending on the method of delivery selected by you at checkout, there may be an additional delivery fee added to your order. After you have chosen a method of delivery, this fee will be included in the full price communicated to you before you purchase a ticket. Some of our event partners may add on additional fees such as local taxes, venue restoration fees and other fees necessary to facilitate the purchase. Any such fees (as applicable) will also be displayed on the Website and should be considered by you before purchasing a ticket.
We make every effort to ensure that prices quoted at the time a purchase is made through the Coras Services are accurate. Nonetheless, if you choose to pay for the tickets in your local currency we reserve the right to amend the price quoted at the time of purchase is made. The foreign exchange rates used by us to display prices in the currency chosen by you are updated frequently, however, all prices are subject to change without prior notice due to currency fluctuation
We accept payment with many major credit and debit cards and via payment platforms which may be updated and/or changed at our discretion.

Your tickets will only be available at the venue for collection. You can collect your tickets directly from the venue's box office or other designated collection point on the day of the event.
When you collect your tickets from the venue box office or other designated collection point, it is your responsibility to produce on collection:
the order reference number;
the debit or credit card used to purchase the tickets; and
a valid form of identification.
Certain venues at which events or performances take place might not release the tickets if any of the information presented on collection does not match the name of the person that purchased the ticket(s).
Event changes or cancellations
If for any reason a performance or event for which you have purchased a ticket through the Coras Services or the Websites is cancelled or changed after you have purchased a ticket and it is not possible to substitute another performance or event satisfactory or suitable to you, then we will arrange to provide you with a full refund of the ticket price paid by you and neither party shall be under any further obligation or liability to the other with respect to the applicable purchases. No booking fees or other discretionary transaction fees will be refunded
