Planning a Comic Con Visit without Blowing Your Budget

London Film and Comic Con has only increased in popularity over the years especially with fans and ‘nerds’; you’ll see every kind of people at Comic Con. The only real way to get tickets for Comic Con is if you get them in advance, you can’t expect ticket booths outside Comic Con. A typical Comic Con is scheduled during July, people flock from different cities and even countries just to attend the event; it’s not every day that you meet people dressed up as your favourite character. All the hassle that you might face is worth it, Comic Cons are extremely fun and it’s a chance to be able to meet some of your favourite characters from movies, TV shows as well as games.

Hotels and tourist attractions fairly close to Comic Con will almost certainly hike up their prices because they know that a lot of people visiting for comic con dates are sure to avail what they have to offer. Now that you know and you have plans on attending Comic Con then better create a plan and book accommodations before the price hike.

Availing Comic Con Tickets

Comic Cons tickets sell out at lightning speed regardless of how many are actually available so better be quick. Nerds and fans who plan to go for the full weekend have to purchase tickets online as early as the moment the tickets become available, a day later will certainly be too late; a full weekend includes Friday’s preview night.

Let’s say that you forgot to purchase online and few hours had gone by, you might have to settle for one day. The next best thing, and might be the last resort, is a ticket for Sunday since they don’t sell as much as those scheduled on Saturday; the reason for this is quite simple, famous people and stars prefer to go during Saturdays so fans aim for that day.

Worst case scenario, online tickets are sold out, don’t fret because there’s still a chance that you can attend Comic Con; you’ll need to spend a considerable amount of time standing in line for tickets outside the venue on the comic con schedule. They actually let more people in on the day when they see that a number of people have left; basically if no one leaves then you need to wait until someone does before you can actually get in. No matter how many tickets the organisers release, ticket shortages will still be a thing and for people who experience that they’ll end up standing in line at extremely early times; if you’re wondering how early, even as early as a day before.
