    booking office

    Can any native tell me the difference between "booking office", "ticket office" and "box office"?

    They seem so confusing.

    Thanks

    In many cases they are interchangeable, especially in the context of the theatre, arts and entertainment "box office" tends to relate to the performing arts whereas the other two can have a more general use, for example in a bus station. There are also regional differences.

    I've never heard of a "booking office" in AmE.
