Ask HPD: Ticket Scalping


Question: If I have tickets for a concert or sporting event, but am unable to attend, can I sell them online or outside the venue on the day of the event?

Answer: Under Hawaii law, ticket scalping is not illegal. However, the department does not recommend purchasing tickets from scalpers, as the tickets could be fraudulent. To avoid becoming a victim, only buy tickets from an authorized seller.
