How To Plan A Last Minute Trip To Vegas

Going to Vegas is a blast. No matter what you've got in mind, you'll find plenty of fun in Vegas. Eating, drinking, golfing, watching shows, and yes, even playing some cards or whatever other games you enjoy. If you're going with your family, that's one thing. You can plan a couple weeks in advance, take a road trip, plan your activities and have some fun.

This is how many people decide to enjoy Vegas. To be sure, there's plenty of deals you can take advantage of, and if you've got any kind of frequent flyer program that's adding up miles, you can take advantage of that and save a ton of cash. Just like any other vacation destination, planning ahead can help you make sure you're getting a good deal on everything.

But what if you don't have time to plan ahead? What if your buddies call you on a Friday afternoon, and suggest leaving for Vegas in a couple hours? Are you doomed to be spending more money than you've got, and running up your credit cards? Of course not. Just relax, and read the rest of this article, and you'll learn the secrets.

First of all, you'll need to check around when it comes to airlines. If you've got a favorite airline you usually fly, you might need to skip it. This can be tough for those who are loyal for reward programs. That airline that gives you the most points may not be the cheapest. So call around, and ask if anybody's got any deals to Vegas.

Next thing you might consider is driving. If you live less than five hours away by car, then driving can save you a lot of money, and it won't necessarily take you very much longer. When you consider all the extra time you'll need to spend at the airport, it might even be a wash.

The only other thing you need to worry about is the rooms. Like calling around for the cheapest airplane ticket, you'll need to do the same thing. Just don't be shy about calling up and negotiating for a cheaper price. Call up and ask them if they've got any last minute deals. You might be surprised. Many hotels are very flexible with their room rates. Unless you ask, you'll never know.

So there you have it. A couple of really good tips on getting some great deals. Have fun!
