DOT Cautions Travelers Regarding Super Bowl Tickets

Some travel packages won't include a ticket to the game'

As a precaution, the U.S. Department of Transportation is warning travelers headed to Houston for Super Bowl LI that not all travel packages include tickets. Under the agency's consumer protection rules, anyone marketing an air package that includes game tickets must have the tickets in hand or a written contract for the tickets at the time of sale.

If solicitation material does not specifically mention tickets, it is likely they are not included. If a tour says it includes tickets and a consumer doesn't receive one, they are entitled to a full refund even if they have traveled to Houston.

The Houston Chronicle reports that audit/consulting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers has estimated $190 million will be spent by businesses, visitors, the media, and the NFL on the Super Bowl for food and beverages, entertainment, lodging, transportation, hospitality, and more.
