PROS / Coast to Coast Tickets has an excellent and easy-to-use search engine right on the homepage.
CONS / It lacks most of the convenience features other online concert ticket websites provide, from paperless tickets to price alerts.
VERDICT / This is an average service in price, fees and features. As such, it's not the go-to for online concert tickets, but it is still worth checking when doing comparison-shopping.
Coast to Coast Tickets is a satisfactory place to find online concert tickets but certainly isn’t where you should start. Coast to Coast Tickets has a variety of ticket options and a good selection. Its prices and service fees run about middle-of-the-road in comparison with other concert ticket services we reviewed.
The site has some interactive maps, so that if you click on a section, the available seats in that area pop up, and you can sort by section, row, quantity or price. There's also a special section for eTickets. These are especially convenient because you can print them from home. The fee for this is higher than other services but not excessively so. This site has no will call option nor paperless tickets that let you use a credit card as you ticket.
One standout feature on this site, however, is the search engine on the homepage. It lets you search by all the relevant information, so that if you know exactly what tickets you want – band, city, venue and date – you can easily find out if this concert ticket service has any for sale. If you're not sure what you're looking for or are more flexible on the particulars, you can search by any one of these options or go to the concert page and look up bands by genre.
This concert ticket service focuses on the buying and selling of tickets and is short on most of the convenience features we looked for in online concert ticket sales. You won't find a rewards program for frequent buyers, gift cards or a mobile app for buying tickets while out on the town. Even more, this service does not support price alerts, which is a nice option for those on a budget who are willing to take a chance that tickets in their price range will come available.
Selling your tickets through Coast to Coast is easy. The toughest part is finding the link to take you to the page where you can register an account to sell tickets. We could only find it as the last line of the contact page; there's no link in the menu or FAQs. Once on the sales page, however, the process is well explained and simple. This commissioning fee is relatively low and charged only if the tickets actually sell.
Coast to Coast has a secure web page backed by Network Solutions. Coast to Coast guarantees that you will get your tickets on time for the event and that they will be legitimate.
Coast to Coast’s online FAQs answers the usual questions. It's a pop-up as well, which is nice if you have questions while checking out because it doesn't interrupt your process and make you start over. You can also obtain assistance by phone or email.
Coast to Coast Tickets is an average service with a nice search engine, but it lacks some additional features that would make the site more usable. The prices and service fees are in the median for concert ticket sales. While it may not be the first place to visit when looking for concert tickets, it's worth checking when doing price and seating comparisons.
