How to Enjoy Las Vegas on a Budget

How to Enjoy Las Vegas on a Budget

Frequent travelers say that a trip to Vegas should cost you around $255 a single day—and if you think that’s a tad much, you’re reading the right blog.

According to previous visitors, even a bottle of water is expensive in Vegas. As are ATMs—they cost around $5.99 per transaction, which is more than what Cubby charges to store one of your bags in a secure, insured location for a full day!

That’s why we’re here to give you the rundown if you want to go on a cheaper Vegas trip—with insider tips very few Vegas rookies know about.

Themed Hotels

The perfect Las Vegas trip begins with a stay in a themed hotel, and while most are expensive, there are a few affordable options that you can check out. The Luxor, and even Excalibur, might cost you around $100 a night.

What we would suggest is to choose one of the older (and not as popular) hotels on The Strip—such as Circus Circus. You’ll want to store your bags somewhere safer though, but more on that later.

Visiting Seasons

Vegas is typically full to the brim in summer. It can get oppressively hot in Vegas once the summer rolls in, but the prices go up as well. We’d suggest you go in spring or fall. And if you’re Canadian, what would work better than the winter, right?


This is the easiest part, because the best thing about Las Vegas is that all the tourist attractions are close by. If you’re staying on The Strip, or even 10 minutes away, you won’t need anything like a rental car. Walking is the best way to get anywhere in Vegas.
