When staying in Las Vegas there are so many other costs than just the hotel and because of that it doesn’t make a lot of sense to stay in a really fancy and expensive hotel if you aren’t going to spend much time there. Something I learned during one of my very first trips to Las Vegas is there are always hotel’s willing to give you a better deal as long as you stay with them.
In this article I will show you some of the things I do in order to find the cheapest and most luxurious hotel in Las Vegas.
- Book your stay during the week – This is actually meant in two different ways. The first thing that you need to do is actually book your reservations during the week because hotel in Vegas are known for lowering their prices during the week no matter what the actual arrival and departure date is.
The other thing that you need to know is that you need to plan your trips arrival and departure date during the week. If you can do this I almost guarantee that your room rate will be cut in half. I highly suggest that you book your vacation on a Wednesday for a trip that will last from Monday to Friday. Doing this is what gets me back to Vegas a couple times each year.
- Combine hotel and flight – This is something you probably already know but I bet you don’t do it the right way. When you search using an online travel agency then you need to make them compete for your business. Something that you need to do is use a few different agencies to try to bet the others price and once you have that you can shop it to the different casinos.
Here is how you do it. Once you have the final price and the lowest I might add, you need to call the other casinos and see if they can beat the price of the agency. The things you will need for this is the actual amount that the agency is going to charge and also the cheapest flight you can find to Las Vegas. The reason you need the flight is because the hotel will take the flight cost off the agency numbers in order to see what price they have to beat per night. Most of the times I have done this it works wonderfully, so it doesn’t hurt to give it a shot and see what you can get.
The once thing I strongly caution everybody with is that it doesn’t make any sense to be greedy with the hotel industry because once they are onto your game they might call around and warn the other hotels and then you will be stuck paying a higher price. If these two methods to get a cheaper hotel aren’t really what you were looking for then don’t worry, I have included some more tips in the next article that you will be glad you read.
