To claim your refund, all you need to do is:

  • Visit the Travel Refunds office at the exhibition between 2.30pm and 4pm on either day of the exhibition
  • Show the administrator proof that you are a full-time student (i.e. your NUS card of a valid student ID) and the travel ticket or parking receipt you would like to claim back
  • The administrator will sign an application form to verify you are a student which you should then send, along with a copy of your travel receipt and your student ID, via post to: Claims Administrator, Venture Marketing Group, 2-4 St Georges Road, Wimbledon, London, SW19 4DP.

Your refund, up to a maximum of £8, will be posted back to you!
