The Super Bowl is right around the corner, which means hundreds of thousands of football fans will soon flock to Miami, and everything from flights to hotels to tickets will inevitably be hard to find. But one travel agency will take care of it all. Oh, and they can also get your VIP access to pretty much every other major sporting event in the world.
Since 1992, Roadtrips Sports Travel has been providing customized luxury sports travel packages to the world's most sought-after and exclusive sporting events from Wimbledon and the Kentucky Derby to the Monaco Grand Prix and the Summer Games. Their personalized packages include luxe accommodations, VIP viewing and hospitality options at the events, and exclusive parties that would make any sports lover swoon.
For example, you can book the three-night Super Bowl package that includes a stay at a top Miami hotel, like the American Express Fine Hotels & Resorts property the Mandarin Oriental, admission to the NFL Fan Experience, preferred tickets at the game, and event transfers. In April, check out the Masters at Augusta National Golf Club with a choice of Masters Badges (tickets), first-class accommodations near the course, transportation, onsite assistance, and VIP hospitality access.
Racing aficionados will love the Kentucky Derby package, which includes tickets to the Derby and the Kentucky Oaks, race day transfers, arrival reception and attentive service from an onsite host team. Or, you can head out of the country and witness Wimbledon, the oldest and most prestigious tennis event in the world, with prime debenture tickets, access to exclusive in-stadium restaurants and bars, full English breakfast daily, and more.
Of course, you can't talk about 2020 sporting events without mentioning the 2020 Summer Games in Tokyo. Roadtrips also has a package for that monumental event that includes accommodations at spots like Park Hyatt Tokyo (another American Express Fine Hotels & Resorts property) or the Four Seasons Otemachi, daily breakfast, transfers, onsite hosts, and a commemorative gift package.
"More than ever, we're seeing sporting events added to travelers' bucket lists," said David Guenther, president of Roadtrips in a statement. "Many consumers are eager to combine the excitement of visiting a destination with the thrill of attending a big sporting event to create that once-in-a-lifetime travel experience. These trips create life-long memories for people, as they bring together two of people's most desired pursuits: their love of travel combined with a passion for sport. Now is the best time to start planning that ultimate vacation experience for 2020."
