Las Vegas Money Saving Tips
Las Vegas is one of my favourite places and I have some of the best memories from my visits to this adult Disneyland (not that Disneyland isn’t for adults). Can’t afford to go to Europe? Hit the strip in Vegas and visit Paris and Venice within walking distance. Sin city is where you function off of the high of the atmosphere and sleep minimal hours in order to see and do everything. Las Vegas is relatively cheap to travel to but can cost an arm and a leg once you are there. Here’s some money saving tips I have picked up from my adventures in Las Vegas.
- Las Vegas prices for travel packages are cheap year round depending on what hotel you choose to stay at. I book all my trips with WestJet and paid similar prices both times I went (Christmas week and Family Day long weekend).
- Book a budget friendly hotel on or off the strip. I have booked at The Flamingo both times I have gone because it’s one of the cheapest options but with the best location. The rooms have always been spacious and nice. When we went at the end of 2015 we had a newly updated room. I can’t bring myself to pay big bucks for a fancier hotel for how often I am in the room.
- Head to the liquor store and buy all your alcohol for dirt cheap. We always mixed our drinks then hit the strip. Another option is to go into one of the many convenience stores and grab cans of whatever you like. This will save you a lot of money because drinks in the hotels are not cheap.
- Get a coupon book when you arrive. Most hotels give them out at check in. They have a map of the strip on the back that will come in handy. There will be coupons for tourist attractions and 2 for 1 deals for restaurants and buffets. We used a buy one get one half off coupon for the wax museum and a 10% off coupon for the High Roller.
- Download the app “myVEGAS slots” and play in your free time. You earn points from playing that can be redeemed for food, shows and attractions. I used my points for a buy one get one half off ticket to the Cirque Du Soleil show Zumanity.
- Taxi’s are expensive! Bring good runners and walk the strip. It’s the best way to experience Las Vegas.
- Check out all the hotel’s on the strip. Walking through them is completely free and they all are so different and worth checking out. Blog post to follow on all the free things to experience in Las Vegas.
