ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WHEC) — As the Bills prepare to travel to Kansas City for this Sunday's game, so are many of their fans. AAA is helping people with travel plans and providing them with important information.

Whether you plan on traveling by air, or even by car AAA says it has you covered. They even have information on where you can spend the night.

Moments after the Chiefs beat the Browns, Bills fans were making plans for Kansas City. AAA's Pittsford branch has been busy coordinating travel itineraries. Senior Travel Advisor Tracey Miller says this is going to be a hot ticket with only 17,000 fans in attendance.

"The tickets are going up as far as $2,000 a ticket, but as of right now they still do have tickets, " Miller said.

Next on the list, booking a flight.

"Southwest Airlines believe it or not from Buffalo is almost sold out, but there are other airlines of course out of Rochester. The airfare right now is somewhere between $400-$450, but those prices are very much subject to change," Miller said.

She went on to say that hotel rooms in Kansas City are plentiful right now with some as low as $100 per night. As far as quarantine restrictions, Kansas City doesn't have any for travelers visiting the city. Returning to New York is drastically different.

"So if you were to go like on Saturday for the Sunday game you'd have to pay for a rapid test, and you know those could cost up to $150, and then again you would have to stay home, and on your fourth day you can go get another COVID test, and if they're both negative then you can go out and about," Miller said.

If you plan to drive the slightly over 1,000 mile trip to Kansas City from Rochester, plan on spending at least 15 hours on the road. New York does have a 10-day travel quarantine requirement when you enter the state that you can test out of. Click here to learn more about it.
