Ticket Exchanges and Refunds
Coronavirus related refund policy
(updated 13 March)

We all like to have something to look forward, but we understand that our audiences may be reluctant to plan ahead due to the uncertainty caused by Covid-19 (Cornoavirus). To reassure customers we have temporarily updated our refund policy. If you are unable to attend any event at the 2020 Edinburgh International Festival for any reason related to the outbreak, we will refund the full cost of the ticket.
Refunds must be requested up to 2 working days in advance of the performance by contacting Hub Tickets on +44 (0)131 473 2000 or email Booking and postage fees are non-refundable. Refunds will only be issued to the customer who made the booking and proof of ID will be required for cash refunds. If you opt for printed tickets, you will need to return these to Hub Tickets at least 2 working days in advance of the performance.

Standard Refund and exchange policy 

No refunds will be given except in the event of cancellation of a performance. If an event is cancelled, the Edinburgh International Festival’s liability will be to the customer making the original purchase and will be limited to the cost of the tickets purchased. Transaction fees are non-refundable. Tickets may be exchanged up to 48 hours before a performance to another performance of the same show, subject to availability. A £1 fee per ticket exchanged will be charged.

We don’t allow the resale of our tickets for private commercial gain. Tickets are sold for use by the buyer and their party. We can cancel tickets if there’s any breach of this condition and refuse entry without refund. For your own peace of mind, please only buy from official outlets – which is directly from Hub Tickets or selected Edinburgh International Festival venues from August. 

Ticket Donations
If you are unable to attend we can accept ticket donations. Please note, you will not receive a refund for either the cost of your ticket(s) or transaction fees.


All ticket prices are inclusive of VAT. There is a transaction fee of £1 per ticket, up to a maximum of £5 for all bookings. There is an extra charge for despatching tickets by post.
