Catching a Cab at the Airport in Las Vegas

by Victor "Vegas Vic" Royer

Many people arriving in Las Vegas catch a cab from the airport. To avoid looking like a tourist, and being taken for a ride, tell the cabbie to take you to the casino directly, and NOT to take you through the airport tunnel. That’s a long-haul trick by cabbies, and adds almost $20 to your fare for no reason. Just tell the driver to take Swenson to Tropicana, and from there either to the casino by Paradise Road, the Strip, or hop on the freeway from Tropicana instead of the airport tunnel turnaround. This is the shortcut, and costs a lot less!

Happy traveling!
