Buying Tickets and Returns
Once you have purchased tickets, they can only be exchanged, refunded or returned in the circumstances described below:
If we fail to fulfil an order as a result of any negligence, or similar act or omission of our own or in breach of contract the customer will be entitled to a full refund including any booking fee charged.
If the event is cancelled, postponed or material changes are made to the Event, namely a change of event content, the original tickets that you have purchased will remain valid for the revised event (except for in the case of cancellation) unless otherwise advised. However, in these circumstances, only the face value of the tickets will be refunded as these are circumstances beyond St Andrews Aquarium’s control.
For any refund of face value you will be required to return the tickets or proof of purchase, on receipt of which we will make the refund. The refund will be made using the same method of payment that was used to purchase the tickets.
Tickets should be returned to St Andrews Aquarium, The Scores, St Andrews Fife KY16 9AS. Refund requests will be accepted up until 1 week before the date of the revised event or 1 week after notification of the change (whichever is the later) unless otherwise advised. We are unable to refund tickets that are received after this time.
It is your responsibility to ensure that tickets returned are received by us. It is therefore advisable to return any tickets either by secure post or in person.
When events are cancelled, postponed or the event content is significantly changed, we will do our best to inform all purchasers using the contact details provided when the booking was made. However it is the responsibility of the purchaser to check whether the event is going ahead at the scheduled date, time and venue. We cannot guarantee that we will be able to make contact with you.
It is the responsibility of the customer to inform St Andrews Aquarium of any change of address, contact telephone number or email address both before and after receipt of your tickets.
Always check your tickets on receipt, as mistakes cannot always be rectified later.
Although St Andrews Aquarium will use their best endeavours to indicate any age or other restrictions that apply to events, it is the customer's responsibility to ensure that they are eligible for entry to the event that they are purchasing tickets for.
