Our Broncos are headed to the big game next week and many fans are headed out to San Francisco to cheer the team on to a 3rd Super Bowl title. With all the excitement swirling around, BBB wants to give you some tips ahead of either booking a Super Bowl package or being your own travel agent.
The two most difficult elements of a Super Bowl trip to fulfill are game tickets and hotel rooms. BBB urges you to be safe when booking for your dream trip to the 50th Super Bowl.
- Research the seller/broker. Find out as much about the seller/broker as possible, including if they are a member of the National Association of Ticket Brokers. NATB members offer a 200% guarantee on tickets that don’t arrive in time for a game, concert or show.
- Know the difference between a ticket broker (legitimate and accredited reseller) and a ticket scalper (unregulated and unlicensed ticket seller).
- Consider buying tickets only from official NFL ticket brokers
- Check the ticket broker’s refund policy. Only buy from a ticket reseller that provides clear details about the terms of the transaction.
- Always use a credit card in case you need to dispute a false charge; never wire money to someone you have never met, and do not use checks or prepaid cards.
- Check the seats out ahead of time. Always ask for section, row and seat number and double-check on the stadium seating chart to avoid obstructed view seats or seats that do not exist.
- Ask questions to make certain you get all the answers you need to feel comfortable with your ticket purchase.
- Use a secure connection and avoid public Wi-Fi.
