"Hidden fees can add as much as 25% or more of the ticket price" says Greg Cullen of Preferred Seating Tickets. "That's why we recomend fans compare prices before buying."

2013 NCAA Mens Regional tickets are on sale after a weekend of great games and upsets and like the players, fans are making travel plans and locking in tickets early. Preferred Seating Tickets has been buying and selling NCAA Basketball Tournament tickets since 1987 and they've got a few tips to save the fans some time and money.
The NCAA Regionals are split into two sessions with the Midwest and East Regional games starting this Thursday and the final on Saturday. The South and West Regional will kick off on Friday and they finish off on Sunday. Fans can buy both full strips and get the same seats for all sessions or opt for just single session tickets for either the semi's or the final. The first session will have two games with the four teams competing in the last session for the right to go to the 2013 Final Four.
Many fans are tempted to buy full strips to hopefully save some money but if their team fails to make it to the finals then they are often stuck going to a game that means very little to them unless they are college basketball junkies. The truth is tickets for the final session are often considerably cheaper than those for the first session. It may not make sense but when the losing teams and fans start getting rid of their tickets for the final game the market gets flooded and the prices are more likely to go down than up.
Hidden service fees are very common with websites selling NCAA Regional tickets. The problem is fans often don't notice the fees because they are slipped in during the ordering process making it harder for fans to compare prices. "Hidden fees can add as much as 25% or more of the ticket price" says Greg Cullen of Preferred Seating Tickets. "That's why we recommend fans compare prices before buying."
Who you buy from may be just as important as how much you pay because if the tickets aren't legit it doesn't matter how much you paid when you're turned away at the door. Preferred Seating recommends that you never pay cash for tickets on a street corner and always check the Better Business Bureau and online rating sites as well as the contact information for the vendor. You may not find any ratings online if they've done everything right, but you usually find postings when they've done things the wrong way.
