Bankrolling a Super Bowl trip

Attending Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis is an expensive proposition.

Getting there alone will set you back $1,500 or more, whether you are flying from Boston or New York, according to travel site Orbitz.

Those arriving by private jet — expect delays.

At Super Bowel XLV in Texas last year, Dallas-area airports received roughly 700 private aircraft for the big game. Indianapolis expects a similarly-sized flotilla of corporate craft to touch down ahead of Super Bowl Sunday.

Lodging will also be expensive, even for modest accommodations.

A room at the Best Inn will run you $900 per night, according to website Travelocity. That’s an eight hundred and forty five dollar premium over the hotel’s typical rate.

Part of the reason for the tremendous mark-up for lodging is that Indianapolis has less than half the number of hotel rooms as Dallas.

And what about the game day tickets?  How much for them?

Well, according to ticket reseller website Stubhub, tickets to this year’s Super Bowl are available right now for $2,100, but that won’t get you a very good seat.  For the best seat in the house — a VIP luxury suite — plan on shelling out $516,484.
