Las Vegas Taxis

Taxis are plentiful in Las Vegas. Whether you are at the airport or on the Las Vegas Strip, you'll have lots of options. But remember to be smart, our handy tips below will help you make the right choices when getting a Las Vegas cab. Please we've included the phone numbers for the local cab companies in case you are staying at a location far off the Las Vegas Strip.

Las Vegas Taxi Tips

  • Although you might be tired of walking, take those extra few steps to a hotel to get a cab. Taxi drivers are encouraged to pull in to hotel taxi stands to wait for customers instead of holding up traffic by pulling over on the Strip. Waiting at a hotel also is safer for all involved. Imagine you're club- or casino-hopping in Vegas. You've been drinking, so you don't want to drive, and walking to the next destination is out of the question (you know, too far or a big waste of time). What do you do? Get a cab. If you want to save money, grab one of those mini-van cabs and split the fare with others who are going your way. After all, you may need that extra cash for the cover charge at the next club.
  • After a couple of hours on the plane, you've arrived in Vegas ready to party. Don't make your trip to the hotel longer or more expensive. When you get in the taxi, tell the driver you want to be taken to your hotel via Swenson Avenue, NOT the airport tunnel. The airport tunnel may seem faster because it connects to the freeway and has fewer lights, but the route is several miles longer resulting in cab fares that are $5 to $10 more. The exception to this rule are hotels in the Downtown area, the far North end of the Strip and hotels group on West Flamingo Road (The Palms, Palms Place, Rio Las Vegas, Gold Coast).

    This is called "long-hauling," and taxi drivers can be ticketed and fined if they are caught. Besides, if you hit the airport tunnel route during rush hour (8 a.m. - 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. - 7 p.m.), any time savings you gain using the freeway will disappear in the exhaust of the morning or evening commute. So say NO to the airport tunnel (the only tunnel in Vegas) and use the extra cash for an extra cocktail instead.
