our credit card was stole: can we still enter machu picchu??

we have bought two tickets for machu picchu and paid them online at the official website http://www.machupicchu.gob.pe/ paying with the "verified by visa" program. we already have our tickets printed.

Unfortunately, just a few days before our departure for Peru, we have lost the credit card we used to reserve the ticket because our wallet was stolen.

So we don't have the credit card we used to pay the ticket anymore.

our main concern is... we will be allowed to enter machu picchu even without the stolen credit card?

We will have our passports with us and surely another credit card if necessary but not the one we used to make the reservation.

You don't need the credit card, just the ticket and your passport.

In the MachuPicchu Government site it says as follows:

Tickets are presented at the control gate of each archaeological site and are there that our system verifies and authorizes entry into the archaeological site.

Your passport and ticket will be fine. How you paid your tickets is not a problem for them
