Top Ten Best Online Ticket Brokers

Buying tickets to concert, theater, or sporting events can be a daunting task. Simply checking out prices is not enough as ticket brokers add on service charges and shipping fees that are not transparent until checkout. So with reference to all the extra charges, here are the top ten Ticket Brokers!
The Top Ten
1 TicketLodge

I never bought tickets to a concert online before and I have to say I was quite surprised how simple the process was. I needed tickets to a sold out Justin Bieber concert for my daughter and obviously they were sold out. I always thought ticket brokers were the equivalent of scalpers so I thought I would have to pay and arm and a leg. The Ticket Lodge had the Justin Bieber tickets I needed and they turned out to be way cheaper than they would have been had I ordered them from ticket master. I don't know how they make any money but my daugher was very happy. For anyone who has reservations about ticket brokers you really need to check these guys out!

Love these guys! Like many parents I had a overly-dramatic teenage that "would die" if she didn't get One Direction meet and greet tickets. You could buy a reliable car for the price some ticket brokers were charging for these meet and greet tickets. Fortunately I found these guys off a referral from Angie's List (highly rated by the way) and was able to get a passes for my daughter without going broke. Ticket Lodge literally saved my daughters life... Well probably not but you know how teenagers are!

The Ticket Lodge was established in 2003 and has been your trusted source of discount event tickets for over 10 years. We pride ourselves in our commitment to customer service and offer a massive selection of event tickets ready to purchase at discount prices. Although we specialize in sports tickets, we also are able to provide outstanding deals on theater and concert tickets. So kick up your feet, have a drink, and enjoy your stay at the Ticket Lodge!

I used to buy all my tickets at stubhub then I found these guys. Didn't realize that tickets brokers like the Ticket Lodge often have tickets below face value and cheaper than stubhub. They really have awesome prices on sports tickets. Unless you are looking for something crazy in demand they are almost always below face value. Got some Milwaukee Bucks tickets for $2... Yes, you saw that right... $2!

Have used them several times over the years and always find them to have solid (if not the lowest) prices. Never had any issues with the tickets or delivery. Would recommend them and will use them again.

Order some Cincinnati Bengals tickets from them and was very satisfied. got them for about 1/2 of face value and received them in 2 days. Will be using them again.

Got me some Chicago Blackhawks tickets for the 2013 Stanley Cup finals! Prices were great and $50 less than stubhub. If you need a discount code try "GOVIP".

Go Hawks!

Pretty solid ticket broker. Prices were competitive and felt safe using them. Got my tickets in 2 days and had no complaints.

I have been getting tickets here for the last two years. They always come fast. The company also has great customer service, safe/ trustworthy. I ordered tickets for the 50 Cent concert off of a site my friend had recommended to me called The Ticket Lodge. My credit card was charged twice and I never got the tickets. I called customer service numerous times trying to have the charges corrected. I was told that they excepted no liability for what happened, they are only a broker, not the ticket resaler/ holder and that when I bought them I accepted those conditions of sale. I called and spoke with a gentleman named Matt, I told him my bad experience and why I was now ordering from they, Matt comped me the tickets to 50 cent @ HOB Boston. Thanks again, Kyle Kaplan

I buy tickets here because they are a trusted source! I always get authentic seats and great shipping time and can confidently order pre ordered seats and relax knowing the order is locked in and secure and seats always arrive in time for the event. I have been a customers for 4 years know and will remain a loyal customer since this company has earned my support and business, if you use other websites your wasting money and chancing issues is a company I never have to worry about when I order tickets. Be smart shop here for any event!

I am writing this review because I have had a truly exceptional purchasing experience! I purchased tickets for my sons Birthday this year ordered ticket through Ticketmaster and was told my order was screwed up and they sold the seats I was told were mine. I talked to a friend and was recommended Finallyitsyours. Com, and was I glad I did I got better seats for a better price they arrived in 48 hrs which impressed me and the selection was much bigger than Ticketmaster. 100% my new ticket place

I never bother to leave reviews most of the time it's not worth it, but I was extremely happy with I wanted to express my Thanks in this review: I will start by saying Great Website guys extremely easy to search either categories or specific events and also Great job on the map lay outs and zoom in seat view on the sports area always good to see the view of the area before buying. I called 855-326-8149 and spoke to are real person which was a nice change and the rep named Steve walked me through seating options and found me a great deal! We are like everyone else I assume simply trying to find a safe place to buy tickets, Well this is it! Best variety and unbeatable prices I think this company should be #1 and we will shop here again. Try them out yourself

4 StubHub

The tickets I bought for a concert were misrepresented on the StubHub website. The description stated a specific row and seat numbers, but the tickets turned out to be standing room general admission tickets. StubHub offered no help with the problem, and I got stick with expensive standing room only tickets. I will never use StubHub again.

Bad experience. Bought tickets here and just 2 seconds after purchase realised I had the wrong game date. Talked with customer service and they indicated there could be no refunds. Totally terrible service. completely unfair as these were an xmas gift and did not have money to repurchase. No heart in this company. I would spend my money elsewhere.

Stubhub is a little expensive (15%) but I felt that they were absolutely awesome when dealing with issues. I recently had an issue where I accidentally sent one instead of two tickets and stubhub straightened it out in under five minutes. Then when one of my tickets didn't pay right the Customer service rep. Literally said "Okay it's fixed" and I saw the paypal payment. They are awesome!

I completely agree that StubHub is an expensive rip off! Uploading tickets is difficult and sellers assume all the risks. I sell $10-$15k on the site every year and they hosed me for an error I made uploading that could have been easily fixed. Be very careful, they are greedy and do nothing for the seller!


Got my Pink concert tickets today for the show at Prudential Center - this show sold out almost instantaneously and when I went to Ticketmaster's "partner site" I found that the ticket prices were ridiculously expensive. Cheap Concert Tickets had tickets for Pink at about 20% less than Ticketmaster's "partner site." I've purchased tickets from this site before and have never had any issues.

Hands down - ALWAYS - the cheapest prices here - don't even bother shopping for your tickets any place else. Their customer service people are very helpful too. One tip - use the Instant Ticket Option and you can save on shipping - you just end up printing your tickets out at home!

Been buying my tickets here for years.

Decided to give into my daughter and bought her tickets to see Justin Bieber - I already received the email with the downloadable tickets. I've been ordering from this site for years and we have always received our tickets promptly. Their call in center is also incredibly helpful and pleasant!

I love this site - every time I order tickets their prices are by far the best. I never have to worry about receiving them on time either. I'm a huge fan of Broadway shows and I've gotten amazing deals on tickets to Hamilton, Wicked, Dear Evan Hansen, The Lion King and Phantom of the Opera from this site.

6 Vivid Seats

Vivid Seats is unreliable, undependable, untrustworthy, and to be quite frank, liars! I was promised by Vivid Seats that my tickets would be overnighted to me via UPS on September 2nd, 2016 (concert is September 11th). I called on September 2nd, to of course, verify. I was then informed there was nothing about the tickets being mailed to me on September 2nd. I was cut off of their live chat with agents twice, because they didn't want to deal with me. I placed four phone calls to Vivid Seats the same day and was given the proverbial run around. Now, I am told that they will be overnighted September 6th to me. I am sitting on pins and needles hoping that I get to attend this concert. Do not ever do business with Vivid Seats, you will spend hours and hours trying to obtain your tickets and, in the process, be given the run around and be lied to!

The WORST customer service on the planet. Bar none. The review below speaks volumes.
Tickets purchased in June 2018, concert Maroon 5 October 7. Promised tickets would be delivered UPS, but no dates given. Then told they would arrive day before show. Problem was I was out of town and needed to change delivery. As show got closer, sent 5 yes 5 emails, all of which were unanswered. Customer chat not working three days, then cutting customers off without answers. 100% customer satisfaction guarantee means NOTHING to them. Had I not made one more call on day of event (four hours before show), I would not have gone to show (with substitute tickets that they somehow could e mail me. Former loyal customer bought thousands of dollars of tickets without any problem. NEVER AGAIN. Not hard to see why they are rated 9th in ticket brokers

What a nightmare! I was trying to purchase 2 tickets in the max $200 price range. I believed that I was purchasing tickets from a reputable company associated with the DCU Center in Worcester. I haven't bought tickets for a concert for years, so I was caught unaware.

The website is very unclear and I ended up buying 3 tickets, not 2, because I didn't notice the "small print" which listed the number of tickets. (Granted, I was on an old computer with a not so great browser at my school, so things were not that clear, but I've read many reviews which confirm that the Vivid Seats website is unclear and misleading.) So, I clicked "Buy" and it showed a price of $800.00! I have read several reviews which claim that the website setup is designed to not show a total price until you click the button which makes the purchase final! I nearly had a heart attack! I immediately contacted the managers of the site, however, they gave me the "party line" that the sales were final, no refunds, ...more

They DON'T guarantee payment
Yankees announced mobile ticket back in Feb 2016. I sold the tickets prior to Feb 2016. I called vivid seats two weeks before the game to find out what was happening since VIVIDSEATS DID NOT update my status still stating e-tickets. Now two days before the game, they finally told me I might have to eat the tickets since I did not call them back in Feb and it is my fault that I should have follow up. Why didn't vividseats contact me in Feb about different option (paperticket, mobile tickets or cancelled order). Vividseats is not proactive at ALL unlike other website. They DON'T guarantee payment even if you sold your tickets.

7 TicketsNow
8 RazorGator
9 Ticketmaster

As someone else said, Ticket Master works alongside the event. Most of the time, while buying tickets on the official site, I am directed to Ticket Master. Yes, you can get it cheaper, but this a reliable and trustworthy site were officials actually sell you the tickets. A lot of other sites are random people who buy the tickets and sell them to you, and I would only need it in case of an emergency.

I am quite satisfied with Ticket Master, it is 100% safe, secure and reliable. I honestly prefer using sites like this if I am not in a rush, considering that many hockey games I see actually work alongside ticket master. A bit more expensive, I would only use other sites in case I really need sold out tickets.

This site found the cheapest tickets by far than all of the other sites for my event. More than half the price of the other places.

Yes they have good tickets, but it's a pain in the rear to get through the process

10 TicketNetwork

They have a call center which is helpful when you need to talk to a human.

Good site for last minute tickets. Fees are steep

The Contenders
11 Ticket Liquidator

Avoid this website. This site gave me tickets for a different price (higher) on a different date after checkout. When I called them, they told me all sales were final and refused to correct their mistake. Completely fraudulent.

Worst business ethics ever. No customer service and a shady website.


I don't want to blame other sites. I tried many websites to buy tickets online. Personally I feel Tickethub is better than others. Very simple, easy to search, fast open. I think is different from It is also depends upon the ticket I am looking for but my first choice is

TicketHub is new website with pretty reasonable prices and great website.

Great source.. No extra service fee.

Great website and have almost every ticket with better seating options

13 Live Nation

Great selection amd easy to order
I always use Live Nation. You can also set up monthly emails to see what shows are coming up.

Best service of all ticket purchase.

14 Barry's Tickets
16 Ticketfly

Excellent service, no hidden charges. Rates are low when compared with other sites.

18 Gametime

Came across this app and found unbelievable last minute deals on Red Sox tickets. Everything's done on your phone too, so you never have to print anything out. Great experience.

Great app! Get cheap Giants tickets all the time!


Ordered Radio City Christmas Spectacular tickets and was thrilled with the service I received - seats were great and very affordable. Will buy again from

20 Captain Ticket

This company has been around for over 30 years. They have been in Covina California since the early 80's. The best thing about them is the guys running the place have been to so many events you can ask for their opinion on where to sit for a game or a concert and get a valuable idea for what you pay because they actually know what they are talking about. I also like that they always quote the full price for their tickets. We don't go to as many events as we used to but if I need tickets I call Captain Ticket or buy them on their web site. It is easy to use. Hope this helps.

You can't go wrong here, their prices are more than fair, their website is awesome, they are very helpful and full of great advice, and the tickets are delivered fast - what more could you ask for?

I've tried other ticket brokers and am not always happy. I've been using Captain Ticket for a while now and am never let down. Fair prices, no extra fees ever, and GREAT service!

These guys are great! They have a huge inventory, great service, usually cheaper than stubhub, and NO SERVICE FEES - what more could you ask for!


Great place to buy super inexpensive sports tickets, especially baseball.

22 Coast To Coast Tickets

I've been buying my tickets from this site for several years - they always seem to have very low prices and I always get my tickets very quickly. Found amazing deals on Hamilton tickets here too.


Great tickets! I have used websites to order in the past but this made ordering so simple and my seats arrived very fast :) Thanks you guys are a great company.

25 FromThisSeat

Allows fans to read seat reviews before purchasing their tickets to NFL, NBA, NHL and MLB games. Fans can also see the view from their seats, purchase tickets and parking ahead of time, find hotels and sports bars near the stadium, etc.
