How it works:
- Whenever there are highly popular events or attractions, there are organized gangs which will likely get street touts to peddle fake tickets (high quality prints with stolen QR codes).
Places to beware:
- Barcelona: “El Clasico” football match between Barcelona and Real Madrid at Camp Nou
- Granada: The Alhambra
- Valencia: Tomatina Festival
What to do:
- Buy direct from company/official counters or licensed retailers.
- Alternatively, online day tour platforms like GetYourGuide (best in Europe) also has many bestselling tickets (e.g. Prado Museum, Sagrada Familia, Alhambra & Generalife, etc).
