DO I NEED TO BUY A PAMPLONA BULLFIGHT TICKET IN ADVANCE?
Since over 1 million people come to the Running of the Bulls and the San Fermin Festival, tickets sell out quickly. In fact, almost all of the tickets are already allocated to local residents through their Abono (season ticket) system. Out of 19,700 seats, only 1,000 per day are available to the general public, so the only sure way to have a seat is to book in advance.
CAN I BUY A TICKET TO THE BULL FIGHT FOR FACE VALUE?
There are very few visitors to Pamplona who get to attend the bullfights for the face value of the ticket. Mostly because advance tickets are granted to residents-only, who pay anywhere from EUR 128.00 per ticket to as low as EUR 6.80 per ticket. See the official 2013 ticket prices. The remaining tickets are purchased by scalpers who roam the streets selling at multiples of face value. We aim to cut out the middle-man and connect you directly with the original ticket holder who sells at the price of his/her choosing, plus our service fee (included in the price). The prices you find here are market-based prices, impacted by both supply and demand.
WHO ARE YOU AND WHERE DOES THIS TRANSACTION TAKE PLACE?
This site is hosted by Running of the Bulls, Inc. a corporation based in Miami, Florida, USA. The sale is completed in the state of Florida with payment collected through our online credit card acceptance process. Once you complete your purchase, you will receive instructions on how to pick up your ticket once in Pamplona.
HOW DO I RECEIVE MY TICKETS TO THE PAMPLONA BULLFIGHT?
Your tickets will be available for pickup between Noon and 1pm in the city center of Pamplona on the day of your reservation. Your purchase confirmation will name the exact location of your pickup. In some rare circumstances, it is possible to have them in advance, but this is very unlikely.
HOW DO I KNOW YOU’RE A REAL COMPANY?
Because there is so much fraud in Pamplona around bullfight tickets, we get this question a lot. This is why we created this company, to help visitors have a positive experience in Pamplona and avoid scam artists. We are a registered Florida corporation, with a long history of happy clients in Pamplona. We’ve won the 2015, 2016 & 2017 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence and are a BBB Accredited Business – Rated A+. Plus, we only do business by credit card, which offers you great consumer protections if there is fraud. Beware of businesses that ask you to make a bank wire transfer, because you have very little recourse if they don’t deliver on their promise.
CAN I CHANGE OR CANCEL MY BULLFIGHT SEAT RESERVATION?
Our terms and conditions do allow for cancellation, but there is a cancellation fee applied. Changing your reservation is sometimes possible, but only with lots of advance notice. Please contact our team via chat support or the contact information on your reservation receipt.
WHEN SHOULD I ARRIVE AT THE PAMPLONA BULLFIGHTING ARENA?
We suggest arriving at least 45 minutes early (5:45 pm most days) so you have plenty of time to find your Portal (door), Section and Seat. If you’re confident you can find your seat easily, it is always entertaining to follow the Peña (social club) bands as they parade down Estafeta Street to their places in the bull ring. Normally, these processions start around 5:30pm.
