A FEW MONEY SAVING TIPS

GETTING TO OMAHA

If you are flying in and finding flights priced a little bit above your budget, consider flying in and out of Kansas City.  It’s only a short three-hour drive to Omaha and during the peak time, it may also be cheaper to rent a car in Kansas City.

IN OMAHA

Consider bringing your bike!  If you stay near the airport, it’s a short bike ride to the stadium, and the last two years, it had free secure bike parking.

THE BIGGEST TIP

It doesn’t really matter whether you fly or drive, or where you fly into.  Whether your team is playing, or your just a fan of college athletics, you will have a great time.  Once you Get to Omaha, just sit back and enjoy! The whole experience is simply awesome! The fans, the city, and the experience are amazing! Hope to see you all there!
