Getting to the Big Game  

Flight Prices

National Domestic Airfare Prices: Airfare for travelers from across the United States to Las Vegas for the Big Game weekend is averaging $500 per round-trip ticket, up 63% in the past two weeks alone! Flights on non-low cost carriers will now cost you ~$650 round-trip. For those looking to get out to Las Vegas this weekend, the clock is ticking! Flight prices are only going to increase as we get closer to Sunday’s game.

Flight Prices by Playoff Team City

When to Fly?

Travelers who arrive in Las Vegas on Friday and leave Monday following the game will pay nearly double for airfare compared to flying on the cheapest days. The Friday to Monday trip is the most searched set of dates for the biggest football weekend of the year, even with this price premium. Travelers looking to save hundreds on airfare should plan to fly into Las Vegas on Saturday and return home on Tuesday following the game to save the most. 

Departing out of Las Vegas on Monday following the game will be the most expensive option for any travelers, so skip the Monday return to save!

Vivid Seats Top Ticketing Tips

Safely Score Super Bowl Tickets

  • Pause before you post: Never share photos of tickets online. Information from the barcode to the seating details can be copied instantly and used by others.

  • Shop safe and secure: Only buy from trusted websites that stand behind their tickets with buyer guarantees. Be especially wary of tickets for sale on social media or that require odd payment methods, such as gift cards, money orders, or cash only on the street.

  • Check the credentials: Check for Third Party Confirmation and make sure the site is a member of the National Association of Ticket Brokers (NATB).

  • Mobile essentials: If you’re buying from a site with an app, download the app to get notifications and updates on your event. Make sure your phone is fully charged when you arrive at the venue to avoid check-in complications. Remember extreme weather temperatures can drain your phone faster.
