Las Vegas Car Rental Guide
Las Vegas is a virtual Mecca for rental cars, They have some of the lowest rental rates anywhere. If you have any apprehension about driving in Las Vegas forget it. Las Vegas is a very easy city to navigate as most of the destinations of tourists are in three major areas: Strip, Fremont Street & Boulder Highway. Having a rental car opens up a Las Vegas few tourist get to enjoy: Lake Mead, Stateline, Mount Charleston and many off-strip locals casinos are all within one hours drive of your hotel.
Always valet park your car ($2 tip) and use some of the streets that run parallel to the Strip as a reprieve from the Strip traffic. The largest of the rental agencies is Alamo, they have recently expanded to a huge facility just south of the airport. All of the companies feature shuttle service to the rental counters.
Las Vegas' McCarran airport hoped to open a combined rental car facility in 2006, that has now been delayed till an undetermined 2007 date, the new facility will be located on Warms Springs Rd. between Gillespie St. and Haven St.
Once opened, there will be only one bus to ALL the 11 car rental agencies and not the present system where each company has its own bus. ALL the 11 car rental companies will be housed in one complex. It will take longer to get from the airport terminal to your car rental pick-up but hopefully the location to return your car will be better indicated than now.
