Cheap Car Rental Las Vegas
Don't gamble when deciding on your Las Vegas Car Rental!
Las Vegas, known as “The Entertainment Capital of the World” and “Sin
City,” is a truly complete resort destination. It offers amenities like
casino-hotels, fine dining, live entertainment and 21st century trade
shows and conventions. The world-famous Las Vegas Strip lets visitors
take a romantic walk on a warm desert night, or drive downtown in a
rental car to the spectacular light show of the Fremont Street
Experience. There are so many photo opportunities, like the Sphinx of
Egypt, Eiffel Tower and erupting volcanoes, that you should pack an
extra memory card for the camera!

Are you flying to Vegas? Want to book a cheap rental car at the Las Vegas airport?Travelers to Las Vegas will usually arrive at the sprawling McCarran International Airport. McCarran International is located five miles south of the Las Vegas business district. With four runways and an area of 2800 acres, the airport ranked ninth worldwide in 2010 for arrivals and departures, with over half a million planes moved! And along with that bustle, there's a little bit of hustle – the airport has more than 1200 slot machines throughout its terminals.
At McCarran, car rental companies are consolidated three miles from the airport. Arriving rental car customers are given free transport to the McCarran Rent-A-Car Center on Gilespie Street on a blue-and-white McCarran shuttle. The shuttles are environmentally friendly buses running on “G-Diesel” fuel, and each is ADA equipped to provide access for customers with disabilities or special needs. To reach the shuttles, follow the signs to “Ground Transportation” from the baggage claim area. The shuttles pick up outside Terminal 1 door numbers 10 and 11, and West doors 1-4 or East doors 5-8 of Terminal 3. Off-site rental agencies pick up at Space #4 near the taxi area at the Rent-A-Car Center.
The 24-hour state-of-the-art Rent-A-Car Center offers customer service perks including self-service flight and baggage check-in. Customers are advised to plan for additional time necessary to get to and from the Rent-A-Car Center, and for the shuttles to and from the airport.
Here is some helpful information about exciting Las Vegas!The Northern Club was the first Las Vegas casino when it opened in 1931. (It's now the La Bayou.) Today, the Golden Nugget is the largest hotel and casino in the city. Most major casinos are downtown on the Fremont Street Experience, the Stratosphere being the major exception.
The Las Vegas valley stretches long past the neon lights, and your rental car can transport you to the amazing Hoover Dam and Lake Mead, or to breathtaking panoramic views at Mountain Charleston or the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area.
Las Vegas does not have major professional sports teams, although it does have the Las Vegas 51s of the Pacific Coast League, the AAA baseball farm team of the New York Mets.
Las Vegas was once a stopover for pioneers trekking west to settle areas like California. It became a city in the early 1900s, but it was the 1931 legalization of gambling and 1935 completion of the Hoover Dam that led to a boom in residents, tourism and the beginnings of the casino-hotels. Hoover Dam – 30 miles southeast of the city – forms Lake Mead, the biggest man-made lake in the country.
