Renting a car in Las Vegas
There’s a number of good reasons for renting a car while visiting Las Vegas. When staying at the Las Vegas Strip other resorts appear to be close by. But in reality walking from one resort to another can be quite a hike. As you might have seen we have information about a large number of resorts on our website. When you’re interested in visiting various places in and around Las Vegas it’s probably wise to rent a car. The money you’ll spend on cab fare will ad up quickly and when you enjoy exploring all the city has to offer, renting a car will probably be much cheaper. Some of the rental companies offer incredible low rates during different periods of the year so ‘shopping around’ could save you some serious money. Added bonus: saving money on cab fare increases your daily budget to splurge.
It’s also a smart decision to rent a car when you’re planning to do some sight seeing outside of the Las Vegas city limits. You can visit Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, the Valley of Fire, Red Rock Canyon, Laughlin, Area 51, etc. You can join organized day tours to these locations but if you already decided to rent a car you’ll save a lot of money driving there by yourself. Parking is never a problem in or around Las Vegas either and it’s free almost everywhere.
