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.

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.
