Make sure you have a valid driver’s licence for driving around Las Vegas.
Call your existing car insurance company to find out what coverage you have under that policy when renting a car in Vegas. This way you will be able to decline some insurance coverage that Las Vegas car rental companies offer you and save on your hiring cost.

he car before you pull out of the car space.

Make sure you have a good map and detailed directions.
Make sure you ask the car rental company the following 7 questions:
1. Are there any discounts available?
2. Do they charge an airport shuttle fee for customers who arrive by shuttle?
3. Do they give unlimited mileage and what are the conditions?
