Hand Baggage Only Fares To Las Vegas

With the growth of low-cost airlines allowing Brits to get abroad for less, many top airlines have started to introduce "lite" or hand baggage only fares which can help keep the cost of your flight to Vegas cheap.

So what's included in these "unbundled" fares? This really depends on the airline you fly with. Some airlines will simply offer you a seat with hand luggage and that's it. No food, no blanket, nothing.

Alternatively, you can upgrade and pay a higher price for your economy ticket, which may include a checked in piece of luggage, early seat selection and even extra legroom seats. If you're going hand luggage only, make sure you check the size restrictions to avoid being stung at the airport.

Las Vegas Airport

When arriving at Las Vegas Airport (LAS), taxis are a relatively easy way to get from the airport to the Vegas strip, however if you want to keep your trip cheap, try pre-booking an airport shuttle. Some hotels will offer a free or paid for shuttle service from the hotel to the airport.

If you have flown indirectly, via another city in the USA, you'll have already cleared immigration which makes the arrival process in Las Vegas much easier.

Airlines Flying To Las Vegas

British Airways and Virgin Atlantic offer direct flights from London to Las Vegas, with Virgin also offering flights from Manchester. Thomas Cook Airlines used to offer regional flights from Scotland too. Direct flight prices can often be cheap enough, however, particularly during the school holidays, direct flight prices can be expensive so you may want to fly indirect, which also opens up the opportunity to stopover for a few nights in another city like New York or Miami.

Air Canada, Delta Airlines, United Airlines and American Airlines all offer stopovers in the US or Canada while travelling to Vegas. Simply add in the extra cost of your hotel in the city you want to stop over in.

Flying to Vegas in July or August will be hot. It is the desert after all, so you may prefer to choose a cooler time of year. While all hotels are air conditioned, walking down the street, even for just a few minutes in the Summer can be quite intense. Cooler months like March, April and October are also popular times of year to fly to Las Vegas.
