Rent a car in Las Vegas

Where to rent a car in Las Vegas

Planning a trip to Sin City? Las Vegas isn’t just a destination for those heading straight for the slot machines and blackjack tables; there’s plenty more to this place than just flashy neon signs, late-night shows and “Vegas baby”.

If you take a flight to Las Vegas, rental cars are available at McCarran International Airport (LAS). Choose from Advantage, Budget, Alamo, National, Avis, Dollar, Enterprise, Hertz, Payless, Savmore and Thrifty. You can also find rental agencies along the Strip. You can find the best car rental deals on liligo.com and be sure to reserve your car in advance; it can be tricky to get one at the last minute or upon arrival during peak season. Most major hotels will have a rental car company located on-site for both guests and non-guests to make use of.

Driving in Las Vegas: what you need to know

It’s common practice for hotels and casinos on the Strip to offer free parking. Usually there’s valet parking too, for a small fee. It’s a good idea to arrive early on Friday and Saturday nights, as the self-serve parking lots fill up quickly!

Sometimes it’s worth dishing out and paying for valet parking if you’re short on time or running late. It sure beats circling the lots hoping to find a space! While taxis are really convenient in the city and for getting to and from hotels and casinos, a rental car is essential if you want to escape Vegas and explore its surroundings.

When driving in Las Vegas, it’s essential to drive carefully. Vegas has the highest number of alcohol-related accidents and fatalities. With flashing lights on both sides of the road, it’s easy to get distracted in bumper-to-bumper traffic, so make sure your driver is concentrating fully.

Road trips from Las Vegas: what to see and do

Red Rock Canyon

Red Rock Canyon National Park and Spring Mountains are both stunning spots just outside of the city that offer visitors excellent hiking and trekking. Take off from Las Vegas and head straight for the visitor’s center, where you can park your rental car and hit the trails. Don’t forget to bring enough water with you for the day; it can get really hot out there on the trails. Travel a little further to Lake Mead National Recreation Area for a dip in the hot springs.

Death Valley National Park

While Las Vegas is commonly thought of as a city destination, it’s right in the middle of some of the most interesting landscapes in the country. Two hours west of Vegas is Death Valley National Park, one of the hottest places on the planet and the lowest point in North America. We don’t recommend you visit between June and September, when temperatures easily climb up to 120°F. What can you expect? Salt flats, dramatic canyons, creeks and a great photo-op at Dante’s View.

Los Angeles

You’ll definitely want to spend more than a day or two in LA if you’re planning to venture this way. It’s a 4-hour drive from Las Vegas and makes a great site-trip to your vacation in Nevada. Start off in Hollywood, and then cruise down to the Westside with your car rental. Haven’t bought any souvenirs yet? You’ll find everything you need along Grand Avenue. There’s no place cooler than Venice for people spotting and you might even see a celebrity or two!
