It's super simple: just add a ticket to your basket and at checkout, select if you're purchasing for yourself or a mate. If you're buying for a mate, add their details into the registration form. After you've paid, they'll get an email telling them how lucky they are to have you as a friend! Once your mate receives the email, they need to click on the link to claim it - so don't forget to remind them to do so.
