How do I redeem my culture voucher?
You can redeem your culture voucher for a visit in three ways provided that these are the usual reservation channels for the relevant cultural partner.
- By phone: you give the unique code of the voucher you want to us. You can find this code below the QR-code. Warning! The unique code is case-sensitive and there is a difference between zero and the capital letter O.
- By e-mail: you send the culture cheque as a PDF or you send the unique code of the culture voucher you want to use.
- Via reception/ticket desk: you can reserve a spot with the unique code of your culture voucher in your Passbook, as a PDF or on your smartphone. You can also print the culture voucher you want to use.
After giving the unique code of the culture voucher you want to use the cultural partner will see that the voucher has been redeemed. The purchase process will be further dealt with by the cultural partner. You will receive a ticket for the show you want to visit.
My unique code does not get accepted, what do I do?
The unique code is case-sensitive and pay attention to the difference between zero and the capital letter O. Did you not use your culture voucher, but the unique code does not work? Please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org stating your username, e-mail and unique code. We will contact you as soon as possible to figure it out and if necessary correct it.
Do I have to make a reservation beforehand?
On the condition that the cultural partner does not work with reservations and/or there are still places available for the performance of your choice, you can use your culture voucher on the spot at the cultural partner.
