Saving Money In Las Vegas

October 6, 2011 · Posted in North America, Travel 

Need to economize during your trip to Las Vegas? Read the following easy-to-implement strategies:

Food & Dining: Order wine by the bottle. If a few folks are drinking wine and can settle on the type of wine that you like, you are able to save some money by ordering a bottle rather than several glasses. Go to the buffets and casino food courts as they’re generally less expensive than restaurants. Forgo the soft drinks and the bottled water at cafes, the expenses can easily add up and even cost as much as your food! Stick to ice water. Before entering a restaurant, check the menu so that you know how much it’ll set you back. Some dear restaurants can quickly take up your budget.

Getting About: Taking the Las Vegas Monorail or walking are the best and most cost-effective ways to get around in Vegas. However, if it is pretty hot, try the Las Vegas hotel shuttles. If you hire a auto, hire compact or sub compact vehicles as you can save lots on gas costs. When taking a Las Vegas taxi from the airport, tell the cab driver not to take the tunnel as this costs a little more. A strategy some dodgy taxi drivers use to sting passengers once you get to your destination, is to all of a sudden mention that they do not have change. If your bill is $11 and you just have $20, you dont want to be compelled to leave a $9 tip. Ensure you have small bills so you can account for this.

Las Vegas Shows: Las Vegas show tickets are cheaper online so make sure you take advantage of this in contrast to buying tickets when you get to the show. After buying your Vegas show ticket online, select “Will Call” as a delivery option. With this method, your tickets are held at the ticket office for you to collect before the show. Will Call saves on delivery and handling costs. You also do not have to stress about your ticket getting lost in the mail.

Hotel Deals: Find Las Vegas hotel deals online and then book direct. It’s less expensive than going with a travel comparison site. Las Vegas hotels are usually cheaper mid-week. Do not forget to play around with your dates to find what’s the least expensive. Check the Las Vegas Convention Calendar to be certain there aren’t any major events in town when you plan to be there (unless your actually coming for that particular event!). The Wynn is one of our favourite Vegas hotels.
