Planning Trips To Outback Bowl
IOWA CITY, IA (CBS 2/FOX 28) -- Over the past 24 hours, it's been hard to tell whether Winebrenner Red Carpet travel is a travel agency, or a high volume call center.
[The calls] started right after the announcement last night, and we were here until midnight, said Terry Tegen with Winebrenner.
He says what started out as a season of uncertainty is ending with a bang.
To get to a bowl like the Outback Bowl, which is a quality bowl, we couldn't be any happier.
So far 2 1/2 of their 4 planes are full, as Hawk fans look to fly south for the winter.
It's nice to take your shoes and socks off and run green grass through your toes, said Richard McCall, who along with his wife Mary purchased a travel package for the Outback Bowl.
The couple has been married for 61 years, and has been attending Hawkeye games and bowl appearances for 32 of them.
We started with Hayden Fry, and we went to every bowl game he went to, Mr. McCall said.
After a tough 2012 for the team, the couple is happy to hit the road once again.
It was better than last season, I'll tell you that, Mrs. McCall said.
Winebrenner is rolling out the red carpet for fans. Starting at around $1,400 you get Round trip air fare, a room at the Tampa Marriott Waterside hotel, pregame police escorts, admission to the Hawkeye Huddle fan fest, and more. There are also packages available for those that who don't need air transportation.
The only thing that can't provide is a victory. However, the McCalls' says the Hawkeyes have got you covered.
We're gonna win, Mrs. McCall predicts.
Her husband agreed.
I think it'll be a close game, but we'll pull it off.
If you're looking to make arrangements on your own, and put the trip together piece by piece, you might run into the similar prices.
The difference here is that a travel package like this one offers the chance to be with other Hawkeye fans for the majority of the trip. In addition, with the way the weather has been lately, traveling by charter will help you avoid airport delays.
