Even though the glory days of easy comps, free meals, drinks, cheap hotel rooms and other lost freebies, Las Vegas vacation deals still exist.
They may be a little harder to find, but they are there. Believe it or not, on the freeway this morning I saw a billboard advertising three days and 2 nights at the Sahara for $25.00.
You are not going to get a great room, but it will be acceptable. I have stayed at the Sahara many time for $15.00 a night. If you want a bargain this is it. Also at the end of the strip is the Stratosphere. Once the gem of Las Vegas, it still is impressive at least from the outside. A step up from the Sahara, you can get very inexpensive rooms here also.
Do not call the hotel for these deals unless they are advertised. You can give it a shot, but I have found that the best room rates, some as low a $12.00 a night can be found on Hotels.com.
Hotels.com offers a lot for the traveler on their web site. All the info and photos you need, plus and most important, feedback from other travelers that have stayed at the hotels.
Just try to remember when reading these critiques of the properties that “you can’t please all the people all of the time” So try to realize that things may go wrong, the person may have had a bad day, or whatever. Don’t forget to read the positive as well as the negative reviews and make a judgment on the whole picture.
However, for the best Las Vegas vacation deal you may want to consider a package. One of the best companies for putting together Las Vegas vacation deals is Funjet Vacations, they do not fly out of every city so check their website for deals and airports.
Another source for Las Vegas vacation deals is eBay. That’s right! eBay has an extensive travel categories where you can find packages, deals on rental cars, airfare, accessories, cruises and just about anything related to travel.
Many travelers will ask if eBay is safe to buy vacations and airfare from, and will you really get the best deal?
The answer is yes, eBay is safe and has many protective measures as well as their own payment processing system. Getting the best deal is another story. You have to exercise due diligence and compare eBay prices with some other sites like Expedia, Ortbitz or Priceline. A great feature on eBay is that you can see the results of all auctions for the product you are considering for the past 90 days. You can see what Las Vegas vacation deals have sold and the prices that the product sold for.
You can also check on the seller’s feedback which is a very valuable also. If a seller’s feedback is low, I would suggest looking at the feedback comments and take everything into consideration. Just because a seller has a few negative feedback comments does not mean they are not a reputable merchant. Read and judge for yourself.
Above all, remember that there still are Las Vegas vacation deals, you just need to look a little harder for them.
