The Tiqets story

Tiqets was founded by four experienced Dutch entrepreneurs who’d experienced the struggles of traveling first-hand. People had to wait in long lines to access top venues and couldn’t get tickets to popular attractions at the last minute -- discouraging people from trying to experience culture in the first place.

In 2014, these entrepreneurs had an innovative idea: to use the phones people have in their pockets to speed up the entrance process. Now, people use Tiqets to easily discover, buy, and access museums and attractions across the globe.
