Millions of tourists head to Indianapolis each year to experience its ‘Hoosier Hospitality,’ cultural institutions and an emerging culinary scene. Locals call it “Indy” and invite visitors to explore all that the thriving city they call home has to offer. Whether a history buff or an urban adventurer, Indy has something for everyone.

Whether planning for a couple or a family vacation, travelers can get the most out of their vacation budget by purchasing a bundled travel package to Indianapolis. TravelMag has compared the most popular booking sites and found that two consistently offer the largest discounts. We recommend checking travel dates on both sites to ensure the biggest savings.
TravelMag has found that Priceline offers some of the best discounts on bundled travel packages. By booking flights and hotels together, travelers save anywhere from $25-300 per person on vacation deals. When considering a trip to Indianapolis, a party of two can save $25-150 on flights and a 3-night stay in a 3-star hotel. Larger savings of up to $300 were available if choosing a 4-star hotel or higher. Priceline offers a price match guarantee, as well as 24/7 customer service. We recommend reading the fine print, as some bookings may not qualify for the usual 24-hour cancellation policy.
We also suggest checking your travel dates on Expedia to compare prices and maximize savings. Depending on the point of origin, travelers can save anywhere from $25-100 on flights and a 3-night hotel stay for two. Some of the biggest savings can be found on higher-end hotel properties – an additional savings of $125 or more was available on Indianapolis’ 4-star hotels. Some of Expedia’s travel bundles do not qualify for the standard 24-hour free cancellation window and are non-refundable. We recommend reading the fine print and verified guest reviews before booking.
Once you’ve secured your flights and hotel in Indianapolis, you can start planning your itinerary with Viator. They offer an array of experiences and excursions around Indianapolis at an affordable price. Foodies can partake in a 3-hour guided tour of Massachusetts Avenue’s most popular restaurants for $58. Beer fans can explore Indianapolis’ up and coming brewery scene on the “Indy Beer Mile” tour for $65. Several walking tours and scavenger hunts are also available, with a $10-20 price tag. Viator’s tours generally include free cancellation, should your plans change.
