Which? response to Wimbledon cancellation

Adam French, Consumer Rights Expert at Which?, said:

“With Wimbledon cancelled due to the pandemic, tennis fans who paid for packages – which can cost thousands of pounds for high-profile matches – will be concerned about being left out of pocket.

“You should be entitled to a refund for a ticket’s face-value price – as long as you bought it from an official seller. While some rail journeys may be refundable, travel and accommodation costs may be trickier to claim back if you didn’t get them as part of a package deal, so it will be worth checking cancellation policies.”
