Randy Weinstein of Power Travel in Plainview says they started getting calls right after Jan. 1 from Giants fans, hopeful their team would be making it all the way to the Super Bowl.
“Some people bought Super Bowl packages with tickets and hotels included and they are just looking for air and it’s going to cost a pretty penny, last-minute like this,” said Weinstein. “Even the motels are making it non-refundable which is unusual for a motel.”

And it’s not just air fare and hotels that are expensive. Tickets for the big gamehave skyrocketed with prices on the NFL Ticket Exchange website hitting anywhere between $2,613 to $15,343 each.
“That’s a lot of money,” said one man outside Penn Station. “We’d have to save up for a year to see that game.”
While some fans said they’d pay around $1,000 to see the Giants play in person, others say they’d rather save the cash and watch the Super Bowl for free from their couch.
