Ticket insurance and protection company TicketPlan has announced a new partnership with iconic London attraction, The View from The Shard.

The View from the Shard allows ticket buyers to see 360-degree panoramic views of the capital from 800ft above the city.

Ben Bray, development director of the TicketPlan Group, said: “We are delighted to partner with the View from the Shard in order to provide a Refund Protection solution to their advance ticket purchasers.

“It’s incredibly exciting to be working with this iconic London attraction which offers breath-taking views and an experience like no other in the capital.”

TicketPlan, which works with clients such as Glastonbury Festival, provides insurance cover to ticketing agents, venues and locations across the UK, enabling those ticket sellers in turn to offer a refund facility to their customers following cancellation of tickets or packages as a result of specified unforeseen events.

Luke Reilly, head of sales at The View from the Shard, added: “Now, more than ever, our visitors are looking for peace of mind and flexibility when purchasing tickets and the partnership with TicketPlan has enabled us to offer this. In this ever-changing climate customers can take comfort that, with the protection of TicketPlan, they can obtain a refund if they are unable to visit the attraction due to a range of unforeseen circumstances.”
