McCarran International Airport is served by many domestic and international air carriers. Southwest Airlines and US Airways have hubs at LAS. The cost at the airport to rent a luggage trolley/cart is $3.

Caesars Palace allows you to check in at the hotel and transfer luggage between the hotel and the airport.

For departing flights:

Allow plenty of time for security screening especially on those days when major conventions end... or schedule your flight at another day/time if you can.

Curbside check-in counters can save time, but will cost you $4 per bag + tip, and if flying an "open" ticket, you won't be allocated a seat number until boarding time.

To travel between the airport and your Strip hotel:

Taxis cost $10-$20 from the airport to a Strip location. The taxi line is well organized and the city taxi dispatcher will direct you to a numbered space along the curb. You need not tip the taxi dispatcher.

CAT Bus #108 costs $2 each way and departs every 20-30 minutes from Ground Level Zero (take the escalator down from the baggage claim and walk toward the parking garage; the covered bus stop is on the right). The bus travels along Paradise Road to the Convention Center and the LV Hilton, taking about 20-25 minutes. At the intersection of Paradise Road and the Strip (Las Vegas Boulevard), you can switch to the Deuce shuttle bus, traveling north to downtown or south to other hotel casinos.

Shuttle Buses will take you to any hotel on the Strip or downtown for $6.

Limousines cost $35.
