Bama fans looking at travel packages to playoff game in New Orleans

TUSCALOOSA, AL (WBRC) - AAA Alabama placed a sign outside the Tuscaloosa office that they are in business for folks needing travel packages for Alabama's College Football Playoff game.

Travel agents started getting calls and walk-in customers by noon Monday.

"It's 3 nights hotel accommodations. Package for two starts at $1,285 and that does not include tickets," an agent explained to Helga Visscher.

"We have season tickets. So we're more interested than most," Visscher said.

She wanted to know how much a trip to New Orleans for the New Year's Day game could cost.

The University of Alabama's National Alumni Association is also planning travel packages with events surrounding the big game.

"With the proximity to where it is plus it being New Year's Eve. We've already had a lot of interest in this and definitely seen a lot of people that are interested in making the trip," according to Jim Bob Horn, Manager of Chapter Development for the University of Alabama National Alumni Association.
