Super Bowl XLIX is only days away—but even now, game tickets are selling and fans are scouring the Internet for airfares.
Asking prices for Super Bowl tickets were averaging $6,541.80 on Monday, up 89.47 percent from this time last year, according to the data compiled by TiqIQ, a ticket marketplace. The company started tracking Super Bowl ticket prices in 2010, said Chris Matcovich, vice president of data and communications at TiqIQ.
The company aggregates data from secondary markets, such as eBay, and from its own inventory, Matcovich told CNBC. "We typically have 90 to 95 percent of the ticket inventory on our website."
Sunday's game in Glendale, Arizona, features the New England Patriots against the defending champs, Seattle Seahawks.
Matcovich said he had expected ticket prices to have dropped significantly by now, but a number of factors caused prices to keep rising. Many ticket brokers, for instance, have withheld part of their inventory, limiting supply and leading to higher prices for now, he said.
As of Monday, get-in prices for the game's cheapest section averaged nearly $4,000, acording to TiqIQ's data.
While ticket list prices may be at their highest since the company started tracking them, Matcovich said consumers can still wait. "Prices will definitely drop," he said. "I don't know how much they will drop. If you feel comfortable buying [tickets] now, buy now. If you're more of a gambler, wait it out."
As of Monday, round-trip tickets from Boston to Phoenix ranged between $723 and $769, while tickets from Seattle to Phoenix ranged between $822 and $1,121, according to Expedia.
Flight searches from Seattle to Phoenix are up 85 times the normal volume, while flight searches from Boston to Phoenix are up about 60 times the normal volume, according to Expedia.
Airline ticket sales from Seattle and Boston to Phoenix skyrocketed after both the NFC and AFC championship games concluded. Sales from Seattle to Phoenix rose 15 times over the usual amount, while sales from Boston to Phoenix increased at least seven times the usual amount, said Dan Kissin, senior analytics manager at Expedia. Kissin added that ticket prices from both cities to Phoenix were up 2 to 2.5 times.
Travel flexibility could save consumers hundreds on airfare, though.
Kissin said fans flying from Phoenix to Seattle and Boston two days after the game can expect to save money on airfare. As of Monday, round-trip tickets from Seattle to Phoenix departing two days after the big game ranged between $446 and $773, according to Expedia's data. Round-trip flights from Boston to Phoenix departing Feb. 3 ranged between $499 and $545.
Expedia also advises fans considering attending the Super Bowl to look for lodging outside of Glendale. "It'll be very difficult to find anything in Glendale," Kissin said. He advises fans to look for hotel rooms in the Greater Phoenix Area, where rooms aren't as scarce and are also considerably cheaper.
As of Monday, average hotel daily rates in Glendale averaged about $600 per night, Kissin said. Meanwhile, rooms in the Greater Phoenix area overall ranged from $40 per night to about $2,000 per night, he said.
There's also another expense to deal with: parking at the stadium. The top asking price on TiqIQ for a parking spot was $832.
