The tour is 9 bucks and is offered 7 days a week except for game day, the day before, and the day after. Its fun...did it the Sat before the steelers game...see the pics in the tailgate thread for the MNF Stiller game. As for cheap tickets...700 round trip ain't bad...and considering the chief game is around new years..good luck...but Kyack.com or any of the cheap ticket sites...its called google...it works.

Baltimore to Oakland is probably your best bet on Southwest.com. Your problem is buying tickets during the busiest high priced holiday months.

Best days to find a ticket for the cheapest price are Tuesday and Saturday. You are in the Holiday season push ticket prices will only go up until the season ends. You best bet is to fly Southwest even if you have to drive to another airport. Bing actually has a really cool tool for searching airfare and it will even get results from all the leading travel sites. It also suggests when to purchase and gives tips. Here is the link:

http://www.bing.com/travel/

I take it you are trying to come home on a Sunday or Monday. Those are bad days to travel as Sunday people are returning home from the weekend get aways and Monday is the Business Travel push.

Hope this helps.

Yep Kayak is another great resource. Since you said you never flew iDenver I bet you are looking at the carriers own websites and not trying different days. $700 is too much even around that date. Too many low fare carriers fly into DIA to pay that much.

The KC game will be cheaper. If you can get the 300 round trip you better book it as I would think you would be lucky to score plane tickets this close to the date during holiday season for under 400.

a plane ticket (inside the US) should never cost more than 400 unless you are:

A. Lazy
B. Rich
C. Buying last minute
and/or
D. Traveling during a holiday. Even in this case, if you buy it early enough it's fine.

Thats your problem. You want to fly in and fly out the same day. Good luck finding cheep tickets that route. Its better to make a weekend out of it and visit Denver some because you will end up saving money.

No way you could save $200 on a plane ticket and you can find a hotel for under $100 per night. Especially if you aren't picky.

What airport do you want to depart from. How much time can you take off. Whats your preferred game.

Looks like you are **** out of luck then....

Your trip plan is flawed and too rigid to get a decent deal.

Going through the hassle of flying to a game, getting to the game, and then going right back to the airport and leaving does not even sound like fun.

At least spend a night and enjoy your stay and then you can leave the next day.
