Getting to the 2008 NCAA Tournament: Flights and hotel prices

SPOKANE, Wash. - Fortunately for Cougar fans, the pain in your pocketbook won't be as bad as it will for Zag fans. There are numerous non-stop flights daily from Spokane to Denver.

The fares get even lower if you're willing to make one stop. The Cougs play Thursday and hopefully on Saturday as well. We went online at kayak.com and priced flying out Wednesday and coming back Sunday.

We found flights starting at $502 for a nonstop and $400 for a flight with one stop. If you fly with stops, it 's actually more expensive around $453.

For a package deal complete with flights and hotel we headed over to expedia.com.

To fly and stay at the Radisson hotel, $673.
To fly and stay at Hyatt Place near the airport, $711.
To fly and stay at Hotel Monoco, $1,072.

Unfortunately for Cougar fans, there's pretty much no cheap and easy way to travel from Spokane to Raleigh, North Carolina. Of course, we looked anyway.

The Cougs play Friday and hopefully Sunday, so we searched expedia.com for flights leaving Thursday, returning Monday.

We looked for flights and hotel packages and found everything sitting right around $1000 or more.

To fly and stay at the Quality Inn and Suites, $997.
To fly and stay at Wyndham Raleigh Durham, $1,143.
To fly and stay at the Sheraton chapel Hill, $1140.

Keep in mind, prices keep rising and rental cars keep getting more difficult to book.
