TripAdvisor, one of the world’s largest travel sites, recently unveiled the results of its TripIndex for the Super Bowl which calculates the likely cost for fans to attend the upcoming game at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. The costs include the average price of a one-night hotel stay in ten popular lodging spots, public transit to and from the game and order of chicken wings and two bottles of domestic beer.
The results of the TripIndex reveals that attendees headed to the game can expect to pay an average of $356 per day, with some of the most affordable options available in the Bronx, New York and Parsippany, N.J.
“Despite the clock running down to the big game in February, TripAdvisor data shows there is still significant hotel availability in the New York City area for travelers looking to score rooms at reasonable rates,” said Brooke Ferencsik, director of communications for TripAdvisor. “According to the TripAdvisor TripIndex, travelers willing to stay outside of 10 miles from the stadium can save almost 40 percent.”
With a TripIndex total of $205 per night, the least expensive destination for travelers headed to the Super Bowl is the Bronx. Parsippany is the second least expensive locale at $253 per night, but is also the farthest destination from the stadium included on the TripIndex located around 24 miles away.
