How I Saved $544 In Only 10 Minutes Planning A Discount Las Vegas Vacation

Aug 17, 2007
I've just done an experiment and I just saved an amazing $544.00 in only ten minutes planning a discount Las Vegas vacation. It really shows how much money can be saved by spending time doing a few minutes research planning your holiday.

I went looking for the best Las Vegas hotel and air deal that I could find in under 10 minutes on the internet.

Here is a rundown of what I managed to do in under 10 minutes and how I saved $544.00.

I started off at one prominent Las Vegas website and got the following deal: Depart two adults San Antonio 30 September 2006, depart Las Vegas 6 October 2006; accommodation at Harrah's hotel and flight included $776.50 per person - a total of $1553.00.

I then went to the Harrah's website and it gave me accommodation for two adults for the same dates as above for a total of $1110.00, and that doesn't include the flight price. That's $550 per person just for accommodation at Harrah's alone.

I then went to another website recommended in The 2006 Guide To Cheap Discount Vegas Vacations and it gave me a total cost for flight and Harrah's accommodation of $593.50 per person (flight and accommodation included) for a total of $1187.00

I then went to another travel website and it gave me a total cost for flight and accommodation of $503.19 per person for a total cost of $1106.38.

If I had booked my vacation at the first website I went to I would have paid $544.00 more than I needed to pay.

In 10 minutes I managed to save an INCREDIBLE $544.00 ($272 per person) planning a Las Vegas vacation package.

All budget travellers can save that kind of money by using the same travel websites and travel search engines that I used to plan your Las Vegas vacation.

Are you planning a vacation in Vegas? A perfect vacation takes perfect timing.

It goes without saying that you will usually get a discount hotel rate in Las Vegas if you plan and book your vacation well in advance. However, planning a last-minute Vegas trip doesn't mean that you MUST pay top prices. It is, in fact, very easy to find discount Las Vegas hotel rooms with a little pre-planning.

Another way you can maximize your Vegas vacation dollars is by taking a little time to research getting the cheapest flights to Las Vegas and special Las Vegas flight deals.

If you are prepared to put in a little effort you can find cheap deals. Thankfully the Internet makes that task very easy.

Before you even sit down in front of a computer and make a booking it is important to note the best times to visit Vegas.

November, December and January are known to be the quieter times to visit. Other times of the year when you will get the best prices are weekdays which are usually half weekend prices, two weeks before Christmas, in the middle of summer and August and December.

The easiest way to find out whether Vegas is "sold out" when you want to vacation there contact the Las Vegas Convention & Visitors Authority on 702-892-0711.

Decide how long you want to stay there for. Many hotels offer lower room rates the longer you stay.

Many of the downtown casinos and hotels are cheaper than accommodation on the Strip.

Look out for hotels offering a free night if you stay for three or more nights there.

Check to see if your planned trip coincides with any major conventions or popular events, etc, on at the same time. If a convention is on at the same time it could be impossible to find a room. Some conventions have attendees of more than 50,000.

As much as possible try and plan your Vegas trip well ahead to get the best rates. Most hotels have an incredible 90 percent occupancy rate with 63 percent of visitors booking at least two weeks in advance. As over 35 million people visit Vegas every year, you really have a lot of competition with other travellers if you are inflexible about precisely when your vacation in Vegas will be.

It's not every day that anyone can earn $544.00 in 10 minutes so what are you waiting for?
