Las Vegas will always remain an enigma for those in the travel industry – after all for many of us it can make up a sizeable proportion of our business, yet working out the cheapest rate can be near-on impossible. For many properties, if you sell the resort, contact your rep in the first instance as many hotels will happily comp a night or two.
If you’re in a part of the trade who doesn’t sell Las Vegas it can be harder. Consumer rates can be fantastic at times, extortionate at others. We’ve got excellent deals rocking up to the hotel on the day with vouchers, or negotiating with the front desk, however you should be aware that a convention or big event can see room prices vary wildly (from US$32 to US$540 in the same week for dates we checked).
These ‘Insider’ rates are offered by Caesars Entertainment for a range of Las Vegas Hotels including Bally’s, Caesars Palace, Planet Hollywood, however, savings are minimal over rates offered to consumers (from as little as US$5 a night). The incredible lead-in rates (from US$32) do not though include ‘Resort Fees’, taxes etc which could actually double the featured price!
I’m sure that Las Vegas will feature prominently on Travel Industry Discounts in the months to come, but this is a good starting place for your holiday research. The best rates tended to be for very late, or very early bookings.
