It's officially happening – Taylor Swift is set to embark on a long-awaited worldwide tour and fans are already sweating over the ticket buying process.

On November 1st, Taylor announced that she will finally be setting off on her brand new 'The Eras Tour', which will be "a journey through the musical eras of [her] career (past & present!)" So far, Taylor has only announced the dates for the US leg of the tour, which includes 27 dates in 20 cities.

Thankfully, Taylor will once again be performing in stadiums across the country, which means there'll be plenty of tickets available for each of the shows... but how can fans get their hands on presale codes and access to the exclusive ticket presales?

Here's everything you need to know about how to get presale ticket access to the US dates (and beyond) for Taylor's The Eras Tour.

How to get and where to find US pre-sale codes for Taylor Swift's The Eras Tour

There are currently two ways in which fans in the US can gain access to the official pre-sales for tickets to Taylor's upcoming The Eras Tour: The first is through Capital One, and the second is through Ticketmaster's Verified Fan feature.

Here's how to secure your access to the ticket pre-sale using each of those methods.

How to access the Capital One Cardholder pre-sale for The Eras Tour.

In order to access the Capital One pre-sale, you will need to be a Capital One cardholder. Whether it's a parent, a relative, or a friend, you will need a Capital One card to access the pre-sale, and the person who owns the card will have to buy the tickets.

To get into the pre-sale, you'll need to a) be a Capital One cardholder, and b) visit Taylor Swift's official events page on November 15th at 2PM (LOCAL VENUE TIME) to buy tickets. You will need to enter the first 6 digits of your Capital One card to gain access to the pre-sale, and you will need to purchase the tickets using that same card.

The Capital One cardholder pre-sale will close on November 17th at 10PM (LOCAL VENUE TIME), or until the tickets are completely sold out.

All the information for the Capital One exclusive cardholder pre-sale is available on Taylor's website here.

How to access the Ticketmaster Verified Fan pre-sale for The Eras Tour.

Fans can also gain access to the Ticketmaster Verified Fan pre-sale. You'll need to sign up using your Ticketmaster account log in BEFORE Wednesday, November 9 @ 11:59PM ET and you will then receive an email confirmation with details on what to expect next.

If you have been successful, you will be sent a unique pre-sale code via text the night before the tickets go on sale. This code will be exclusive to your Ticketmaster email address only. You will not be able to share them.

When the sale starts, you will need to click the link sent to you by Ticketmaster and enter your unique code once you make it through the Smart Queue. You will then get a chance to purchase your tickets.

Taylor has used this feature in the past during the Reputation Stadium Tour. It helps genuine fans secure tickets to see their favourite artists before touts and bots even get a chance to glance in that direction. It's currently unclear if she plans to implement the same "boost" system used during the Reputation era, which allowed fans to purchase albums, merch and make social posts in order to increase their chances of securing tickets.

It should be noted that Ticketmaster's Verified Fan feature does not guarantee you a ticket, but it does ensure that fans are the first ones served – not bots.

How to access the UK pre-sale for The Eras Tour.

The first pre-sale registration for the UK leg of The Eras Tour has now finished. Fans were invited to sign up for pre-sale codes on Taylor's official website, either for free, or by pre-ordering the Midnights album.

There will be plenty more opportunities for UK fans to sign up to a pre-sale in the coming weeks. Depending on the venues that Taylor plays in, there will likely be several pre-sale opportunities for fans, including the Live Nation pre-sale. Like the US dates, these will be announced before tickets go on sale for the UK dates.

Watch this space! We'll update this page as soon as they are announced.

No other pre-sale codes have been announced just yet. Fans outside of the US and the UK will have to wait until Taylor confirms the rest of the tour dates.
