February 2, 2018 Sports No Comments Email Email

 This weekend’s Super Bowl LII, taking place Sunday, February 4 in Minneapolis, is sure to be an exciting game between the Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots – but, with up to 50 percent more Eagles than Patriots fans expected to be in attendance.

Allianz Global Assistance, a leading travel insurance provider, reviewed Americans’ travel plans* for roundtrip flights landing in Minneapolis February 1 – 4, 2018, and returningFebruary 5 – 6, 2018. Of those travelers heading to Minneapolis over the weekend, 15 percent are coming from Philadelphia, compared to 10 percent from Boston. Remaining travelers are departing from New York (5 percent from LGA and JFK), Washington D.C. area (5 percent from DCA, IAD and BWI) and Los Angeles (4 percent), respectively.

Almost half (46 percent) of the travelers heading to Minneapolis will stay for three nights. More than 20 percent (22 percent) will stay for two or four nights, with six percent staying for five nights and five percent staying for one.

“The Super Bowl is a major event for Americans, and with high turnout of travelers from Philadelphia and Boston, we anticipate the stadium to be full of fans from both teams,” said Daniel Durazo, director of communications at Allianz Global Assistance USA. “Regardless of which team you’re rooting for, purchasing the right travel insurance policy can protect your trip from unforeseen or unexpected events.”
