Car hire in Las Vegas
Hiring a car in Las Vegas
Deep in the Nevada desert, it would be hard to believe some decades ago that there would ever be a city that embodies what it means to be alive and embrace the moment. Known worldwide as being the greatest escape from everyday life, Las Vegas has cemented its place as the party centre of the world in recent years, home to bachelor parties, impromptu weddings and casino games that go on long into the night.
Sin City, as it has become known, is all about being brash and over the top. Everywhere seems to shine and everything is lined with lights and jewels in a city where indulgence is the order of the day, topped with a little bit of variety. Where else in the world could you have a quiet breakfast in the shade of the Eiffel Tower, before heading off to see an erupting volcano at dinner and closing out the night with a show in the heart of Italy? Las Vegas is one of those must-see cities that creates both hangovers and dreams in one fell swoop, and it makes for the perfect holiday.
What you need to know
Due to its location in the middle of the Nevada desert, Las Vegas is one of the hottest and driest places you will find anywhere in America. In the peak tourist months in the height of summer, temperatures in the city can get as high as the high 30s and low 40s, so it's always best to have a car to hand to help you get around comfortably, as walking any great distance will leave you feeling tired and potentially badly sunburned. There's also free parking around most of the city, which means driving around the attractions is not only easy, but cheap too!

We compare prices from as many as 1,500 car suppliers around the world and ensure that we offer you the very best price, with 24 hour support, free cancellations and free amendments, giving you the peace of mind you need when making any booking.
Where to pick up your car
When you are flying to Las Vegas, you will arrive in the city via McCarran International Airport (LAS). Located just five miles from the centre of the city itself, it makes for an easy location from where to find your way into Las Vegas once you have collected your hire car and get onto the road.
Rental cars at McCarran Airport are not located on the site itself, so you will need to head away from the airport to the dedicated Rent-A-Car Center in order to collect your vehicle. To find the shuttle buses that take you to the centre, free of charge, just follow signs to Ground Transportation on Level 1 or Level Zero, depending on what terminal you arrive at, and head towards doors 10 and 11 to find the access point for shuttle pick up.
