    I am in Brussels for a short break and get the response “competition is not available in your area”

    • Rob says:

      Correct, it’s not. We don’t have a lawyer who could look at Belgian competition laws and confirm that they were met.

  • Can says:

    Oh god, I’m travelling internationally without a vpn and missing this!!!!

  • Matt says:

    Any news on being able to get Wimbledon tickets via Amex? Thanks to Rob’s post last year, I got front row tickets for the mens QF.

  • Colin MacKinnon says:

    Amex obviously doesn’t know the the most difficult and sought after tickets to get this summer in the UK will be at the worlds larger arts festival.

    But then Edinburgh isn’t a suburb of London! (Even though you might think that from hearing the accents in the street in August!)

    • Erico1875 says:

      Although my wife and her friends have always been able to secure Lady Boys of Bangkok tickets

    • RussellH says:

      Nice point! Far too long since I was at the Edinburgh Festival.

      There is only one of the five ‘experiences’ on offer that I would be interested in, so perhaps HfP will have some sort of exchange system if I were to win one of the others.

  • Froggee says:

    This merely serves to remind how rubbish Amex offers are if you live outside London.

  • twoclicks says:

    Is it just me or is the safety warning about attendance just, well, odd?
