Q: Is the MainEventTravel.com site secure? A: The website has been developed with your privacy and security in mind and employs the latest settings and practices. All financial transactions are completed through a secure 3rd party provider, either Paypal or Sagepay.
Q: What are my payment options? A: We currently accept payment via Visa Debit, Visa Credit, Visa Electron and Mastercard. Please note that a card handling fee will be applied for credit cards (max 1.5%). We also accept payment via direct Bank Transfer
Q: How and when is my credit / debit card charged for a hotel reservation? A: When your package involves a hotel reservation made with us, the payment is taken in full at the time of booking by ourselves (or if partial payment is made, the reservation is confirmed only after full payment of any outstanding balance is received). The hotel may request your credit / debit card details upon checking into the hotel which is held against your room. You will then be required to settle the bill at the time of check out directly with the hotel for any purchases charged to your room.
On rare occasions we may request your credit / debit card details and pass these on to the hotel at the time of booking, where the hotel will charge you for the reservation, not us, however if this happens your confirmation e-mail will advise of this. If you do not arrive at the hotel, they have the right to charge you for at least one night's accommodation.
Q: The packages you advertise are not quite what I am looking for. Are you able to tailor a bespoke one? A: Of course. The packages advertised directly on the MainEventTravel.com site are a reflection of the more popular UK, European and International live poker events. We have the ability to arrange your travel and hospitality requirements for a wide spectrum of Poker events, be that major calendar sessions abroad, or smaller regional events at premier private poker clubs.

Q: Can I book on behalf of a group of poker players? A: Absolutely. Our site offers the flexibility for an individual to book equivalent packages on behalf of multiple players in a group. Better yet there is flexibility in terms of confirming fully payment, just in case all elements of your group are not yet organised. Please see our Group Bookings section for further guidance or contact our Sales Team directly
Q: Is there a limit on group size? A: No. There is no limit on group size but we would advise that larger groups plan well in advance to avoid disappointment. If you need assistance with booking travel arrangements for your group please Click here
Q: What happens if we have non-players who want to join a group? A: No problem. Our packages are flexible enough so that non-Poker player members in your group can be accommodated (e.g. accommodation only options). If speaking directly with our Sales Team please let us know so we can be sure to make suitable arrangements and even offer something to keep them occupied whilst you are at the tables.
Q: When I prepay my tournament buy in, how is this confirmed at the Event? A: We offer buy in as a service to our clients on behalf of the tournament/event organiser for some events. After confirmation of your package your details will be forwarded to the tournament/event organiser who will then confirm directly with you via email. (This should be expected within 24 hours of your booking confirmation.)
