Traveling for major sporting events has become big business with some tour operators. Booking a package trip used to mean you’d be traveling to somewhere with a beach and staying at a resort, or maybe taking some kind of adventure trip. But with so many people interested in traveling to see their favorite sports teams play in big tournaments, it was only a matter of time before sports vacation packages were more prevalent.
It’s easy to find package trips for any of the college bowl games in the BCS, if that’s the kind of trip you want to take. Vacation packages of any kind certainly help to take some of the stress out of trip planning, since it’s often a “one click and you’re done” situation, but you can’t take a tour provider’s word for it that theirs is the best deal out there.
If you can afford to book whatever vacation package looks good to you, then go for it. If you’re more interested in getting the best value or saving money on your trip, then you’ve got to do a little bit of work before you click that “buy” button. It’s only a two-step process, but it does involve math. (Sorry.)
