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 into hotel taxi stands to wait for customers instead of holding up traffic by pulling over on the Strip. Waiting at a hotel is also safer for everyone.

Note that you have to pay an extra $3 when you use a credit or debit card to pay for a cab ride. (No extra charge when you pay with cash.)

Note on taking a cab from the airport: 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-$10 more. The exception to this rule are hotels in the downtown area, the far north end of The Strip.
