Hire a Car to Explore the Sites of Las Vegas

World-class entertainment, adventure, dazzling sights and dreams of winning big greet you in the modern metropolis of Las Vegas. Whether you’re taking in a show at the Bellagio Resort or exploring the steep caverns of the Grand Canyon by helicopter, Las Vegas and the surrounding areas offer excitement and adventure 24/7. By hiring a car, you can also make Las Vegas your starting point for a trip to Los Angeles, just 4 hours west. For a shorter day trip, travel down the I-515s to the Hoover Dam and marvel at a seemingly impossible feat of 20th-century engineering.

Booking your Las Vegas car hire through Expedia can help you save money and streamline the process of comparing prices. We offer a comparison between the various Las Vegas car hire companies, giving you the information you need to make the right decision. Whether you’re booking a 4x4 for those off-road trips across the Las Vegas desert or hiring a saloon for a family trip to the Hoover Dam and Grand Canyon, it’s simple to book your vehicle through Expedia.

Choosing a Car Hire Option for Your Vegas Trip

You’ve booked your hotel and you’re researching day trip options. A hire car is the most convenient means of travel. Arriving at McCarran International Airport, you’ll have access to the following car hire companies:

  • Advantage
  • Alamo
  • Avis
  • Budget Car Rental
  • Hertz
  • Enterprise Rent-a-Car
  • Dollar
  • National
  • Thrifty
  • E-Z-Rent-a-Car

We recommend that you consider the 4x4 options if you plan on driving long distances from Las Vegas to one of the many destinations across Nevada and beyond. For longer trips, consider the unlimited mileage options offered by your rental provider.

For those who plan to stay closer to the city limits, saloon vehicles and compacts offer affordable pricing and a comfortable driving experience.

Traffic levels on major arteries such as Charleston and Lamb Boulevard can make travel for those from outside the area difficult. Also, avoid travelling on Sahara Avenue and Rainbow Boulevard during rush hour, as it could add significant time to your trip.

Driving Safely in Your Las Vegas Hire Car

When you step into your hire car and travel through the sites of Las Vegas, considers these factors to stay safe on the road:

  • Most casinos have free valet parking.
  • The Strip is slow-moving from early afternoon onwards; use Industrial Road and Frank Sinatra Drive for faster access to the casinos by car.
  • The freeway speed limit is 65 MPH.
  • The speed limit on major urban streets is 35 MPH.
  • U-turns are legal unless specified.
  • You can be fined for having an unsealed alcohol container in the passenger compartment of your vehicle.

Your Ticket to Adventure: Las Vegas & Beyond in Your Hire Car

From your hotel in Las Vegas, pack your hire car with supplies and take your family to Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area on 1000 Scenic Loop Drive. Ready for a day of relaxation and entertainment? Visit the MGM Grand. The sprawling casino and resort offers events throughout the year and each night promises a new adventure.

You can use our filter options to set your pick-up and drop-off points for your hire car. Our filter also allows you to connect directly with local firms to confirm your vehicle type and date of arrival and departure, ensuring no element is left to chance for your Vegas visit.
