The average round-trip ticket from Logan International Airport in Boston to Atlanta International Airport cost $731 as of Tuesday, according to Priceline.com data. That total assumes a departure date of Friday, Feb. 1, and a return date of Monday, Feb. 4.

Fans of the Los Angeles Rams, the Patriots’ opponent in the Super Bowl, have a cheaper path to Atlanta. A round-trip ticket from Los Angeles International Airport to Atlanta cost $614. Priceline advised would-be Super Bowl travelers to look for “package” or “bundle” deals to book flights, hotels and rental cars all at once – often for a significant discount.

“When you do that online, you may see prices that won't appear if you book them independently,” Priceline told FOX Business. “Those prices are often negotiated for that type of booking. On average people save $240 per person when they book a package on Priceline.”

Flight prices vary for fans traveling to the big game from other major cities. A round-trip flight from Washington Dulles International Airport in Washington, D.C., had an average price tag of $329 as of Tuesday, while a flight from JFK International Airport in New York City costs $517.
