How to Pay?

Credit Card at the Time of Booking

Card payments are taken at the time of booking using the Sage Pay payment system. Card details can be added online during the online booking process or entered on the booking form. Payment will be taken immediately with a card receipt containing a link to the VAT invoice emailed to the booker.


Please note that invoices will usually be sent up to 29 days before the event. The invoice contains details of payment methods, including BACS & credit card. If you would like an invoice sending earlier, please contact Customer.Services@westminster-briefing.com.

Please note we do not accept payment by cheque or American Express.

Purchase Orders?

Do I need to have a PO Number to register?
No. A purchase order is an internal process and we are happy to take your booking without one. Your place is secured as soon as we send a confirmation email. Please note that booking online/completing a booking form constitutes a legally binding contract with us.

My organisation requires me to raise a PO Number – can I book my place now & send it to you later?
Yes. As long as we receive your PO number before we invoice up to 29 days before the event, we can add the details to our database and send your organisation an invoice quoting your PO number. Please email Customer.Services@westminster-briefing.com at any time to add a PO number to your booking.
