A Las Vegas vacation doesn't have to break the bank if you plan ahead and use these tips:
Pack light and pay attention to additional fees some airlines charge for carry-on luggage.
Plan your vacation during the week instead of on the weekend. You can get great deals on airfare and accommodations mid-week. Use your points or miles from credit cards and use airline frequent flyer miles to save even more money.
Look at accommodations off the Strip and downtown, they tend to have lower rates and fees than hotels on the Strip. Most of them have a free shuttle to the Strip and airport so you won't need a rental car.
You can get great food without paying an astronomical price by using your Vegas Bite Card at numerous restaurants and quick-bites and many are half-price. Also, watch for Happy Hours, most restaurants have them and everything is discounted.
Decide on the activities you would like to do while in Vegas. Your Vegas Bite Card will get you amazing discounts on most of the major tours and attractions. If you feel like venturing out away from the Strip and take in the nature, you can see Hoover Dam, Grand Canyon, or Zion National Park.
