AAA prepares Chiefs fans for Super Bowl travel

TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- If the Chiefs beat the Titans Sunday they will head to the Super Bowl for the first time since 1970.

Fans are excited to have the Chiefs a step away from a championship shot, but if you're looking to make the trip to Miami it's going to cost you.

Scott Martin is a travel agent at AAA in Topeka.

He said, "Going down there you're going to need flight, hotel, possible rental car."

A big event like the Super Bowl makes travel to Miami, Florida more expensive.

"Hotels are running anywhere from $145 and up, so this time of year going down to the Super Bowl the prices are going to be really increased," said Martin.

While a lot of Chiefs fans will wait for the results of Sunday's game before booking, Martin said to do some homework now.

"If you're thinking about going I would go ahead and start looking at hotels, looking at possible rental cars. I would start maybe pricing out some airline tickets. Start getting ahead of the game a little bit," he said.

Martin said it's also important to account for delays because there's a risk that weather might impact travel.

He said travel agents can take away some of the stress.

"Come in and see us," Martin said, "There's a lot of good websites out there that have good deals on them, so I would start checking those out. Come in and see us and we can start looking for you."

You can watch the Chiefs take on the Titans on WIBW-TV at 2 p.m. Sunday.
