ggirl was that track cycling. I have been trying for about 2-3 weeks to get them (any session). We are very lucky to have already got athletics, swimming and road cycling but really want the velodrome ones, The few that come up go immediately sad

I signed up to twitter to follow 2012ticketalert which sends tweet when new tickets on sale

Didn't manage to get anything at all for the Friday in the Olympic Park - tried for all evens within the park, but all not available once it went to the checking bit.

balls I missed this one! However I will now follow that twitter account and hope to get some soon!

That's how I got my tickets - following the twitter alert - at about 3.30 this after noon they started coming through thick and fast - so make sure you have a ticket account ready and are logged in and have your Visa card at the ready.

Some £50 opening ceremony ones listed at the moment. Probably all gone by the time I've finished typing this! Shame I'm not free that day.

got my ticketing account already and know my card details by heart blush

Will keep the lappy logged on to twitter when I am home tomorrow

WooHoo Just got closing ceremony for £50 each (well DS did, I'm much too slow)

jennywren123 Thu 16-Aug-12 21:56:57

Well done Quite's DS!

Bugger, sounds like I missed them, and now the sites broke!

I managed to get tickets for athletics earlier and received the confirmation email. I chose print at home option but I still haven't received the actual tickets. When I bought Olympic tickets last week, I received the tickets within an hour of purchase. Has anyone else received their tickets having chosen print at home option? I seem to remember seeing something last week that said you should contact them if not received in 24h but I can't see that anywhere and not sure who to contact. Any suggestions anyone?

Oh sad

Missed this.

The Twitter alert sounds good.

Saker I got athletics tickets this afternoon. The email with the tickets to print out arrived about three hours later.

Does anyone know if Paralympics tickets include a travelcard?

caramelwaffle Thu 16-Aug-12 23:51:30

therein Yes. They do.

There definitely wasn't a travelcard with the print at home tickets hmm

caramelwaffle Thu 16-Aug-12 23:58:17

There was the same problem with the print at home Olympic tickets: they are definitely part of the package however.

Jenny, you can't remove tickets once you have requested and been successful. you have to decide before you submit your request.

The only thing you could do is buy all of them and immediately put the unwanted ones back for resale. I think you'd have no problem reselling given demand! Or you have to request only what you want to buy.

TheDoctrineOfEnnis Fri 17-Aug-12 00:02:34

I think on one of the Olympics threads someone explained how to get a travelcard printed if you had print at home tickets. Try advanced search!

Saker Fri 17-Aug-12 00:27:24

Mmm doesn't sound promising, I have found a number so will ring in morning.

SoupDragon Fri 17-Aug-12 07:30:52

Does anyone know if I can change the delivery method for my tickets? I chose to pick them up at the park because I panicked during the ordering process and didn't remember the they included a travel card.

TunaPastaBake Fri 17-Aug-12 08:03:33

You do get a travel card if you print at home but you pay to get to venue then pick up the travel card at ticket pickup point when you get there - to get you home !

TheDoctrineOfEnnis Fri 17-Aug-12 08:21:19

Tuna I think it was possible to get a travelcard printed if you took your tickets to a station.

bisjolympics Fri 17-Aug-12 08:26:57

If you go to here you can order tickets to print at your local station. If you are within the games travelcard area they are free, if outside you pay a discounted fare to get to the travelcard area.

Have had a look but can't see where you order tickets to print at local train station - tried the phone number but after various options got disconnected.

Will have another go .
