Boscov’s Travel announced a new service - complete vacation planning packages for Philadelphia Eagles away games. Heeding customer requests, Boscov’s Travel researched different partners to source tickets and offer an exclusive Eagles experience with a pre-game party with beverages, food and entertainment.
“Our clients asked us about Super Bowl packages earlier this year, “ said Janet Papilla, VP of Boscov’s Travel. “We worked with different vendors to find the best value. We knew it was the right time to expand our services and offer complete planning package options for sports games year-round.”
Included in these packages are away games against the Tampa Buccaneers, the Tennessee Titans, the New Orleans Saints, and the Dallas Cowboys. These packages include flights, hotel accommodations, transportation to the game, pre-game tailgate party, tickets, and all taxes and service charges. For local away games against the Giants and Redskins, they offer round-trip bus transportation to the game from Reading, a tailgate party, tickets, and the services of a Boscov’s Travel escort. With the Eagles coming off of a Super Bowl win, the away game tickets are in demand but none more so than the Eagles vs. Jaguars game in London in late October. “Though our packages were just released last week, we already have clients booked to see the Super Bowl champions play in the UK. Our goal is to make the experience stress-free so clients can enjoy the entire fan experience.”
