The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Get off the Strip in Vegas


4. Insider’s Tip

Rent a driver from AWG if you're not staying on the Strip.  

Taxi travel can get exorbitant if you’re staying off the Strip, so rent a car. Though the easiest option is at McCarran airport, which has virtually every agency from Avis to Thrifty, non-airport locations will often offer up better rates. Look for discount codes online at sites like— they can get you as much as 50 percent off the going rate. If you’re traveling with a big group, you may want to consider renting a driver for the night. AWG is a reliable option ($78/hour).
