AIM Holidays Pricing Policy
AIM Holidays is a travel wholesaler and is not a primary ticket agent. AIM Holidays advertised ticket and package prices include the base supply cost of the products and all fees charged to and by AIM Holidays to supply those packages and Show/Event tickets. All prices are inclusive of GST. All prices are subject to change upon any changes of such taxes.
In the case of bookings with Show/Event ticket(s) any amount above the face value printed on tickets reflects additional costs such as fees charged to us for securing seats and pre-sale access amongst other things. Such amounts vary from time to time based on market factors relating to the particular event and date(s) on offer.
For certain events, tickets are sourced and bought from specialised ticket agents that act in the secondary ticket market place. Prices of tickets sold by such agents in this market more often than not will be higher than the price printed on the ticket. Ticket prices in this market are determined by popularity of the event and demand and supply.
We will always do our utmost to supply you with a choice of tickets and at all times you will be supplied with all relevant details and prices so that you can make an informed decision prior to making a booking.
