Paperless ticketing can help to save 2.6 million UK trees! 

This is according to the latest research from, a Dixons Carphone PLC company, reported by Mobile News. Based on a sample of 1,000 surveyed on May 30th 2016, the survey found that more UK residents are using their smartphones as a form of digital ticketing. This included boarding passes (23 per cent), rail tickets (20 per cent), bus and coach tickets (19 per cent) and event tickets (18 per cent).

The research also recorded responses on why users were reluctant to switch to smartphone ticketing. Running out of battery (57 per cent), losing the phone (55 per cent), security (55 per cent), losing WiFi signal (54 per cent) and the ticket not being accepted (48 per cent) were the main reasons.

The good news is that the patent-pending Tixserve electronic ticketing system addresses each of those concerns, and other 'what if' scenarios, so that fans and patrons can now be 100% confident of getting in to see their favourite music artist, sports team or theatre performance with the convenience of smartphone digital ticketing.
