EL PASO -- Travel deals in El Paso are still available for the 2012 London Olympic Games with less than a week before opening ceremonies.
El Paso travel agency Sun Travel said there's still hotels, tickets and relatively cheap airfare to see the games in person.
"There are hotels available and there is air available," said Priscilla Haynes, a travel agent with Sun Travel. Last we checked I think you can get to and from London for about $895."
Tickets for a lot of the competitions are also available. Haynes says some people are really specific on the competitions they want to see.
"The events that are the most popular are the events with the finalists," Haynes said.
A lot of the high profile events are already sold out.
"Swimming is pretty much sold out, gymnastics is limited," Haynes said.
She said tickets to watch Team USA compete in basketball are close to gone if not sold out already.
For those just looking to catch the action in person, Haynes said there's plenty to do and it's the experience of a lifetime.
