Best way to get from Airport to Strip

Hi All

We are going in early March for the first time, staying at The Paris. Should we book a transfer from the airport to hotel before we go, or just grab a taxi?

If we should book a transfer before, does anyone have any companies to recommend?

Thanks

Em.

"Best" is, as they say, subjective.

A shuttle will cost $6-7 per person but could end up being time consuming as you may wait for it to fill up and it may drop off at other hotels before Paris. Assuming there's two of you a taxi will be slightly more expensive at $15-20 depending upon traffic but will be considerably quicker and you'll waste less of your very valuble Vegas time. I would definitely recommend the taxi option.

Tell the driver to take Swenson and Paradise for the cheapest route.

WE always used to book a shuttle, but found that our time is very valuable in Vegas and always(unless we have rented a car) take a taxi now to our hotel from the airport. The shuttle can make numerous stops....You could be last on their list and that could cost you double the time to reach your destination. The other bad thing that we found was if the shuttle is late going Back to the airport. A taxi back to the airport is always better tha the panic we experienced.

hour pass and it runs all night.

we've been 5ive times in 4 years and always stopped at the circus circus hotel and taken a shuttle bus, its now $6.50 each one way or $12 return.

we prefer the shuttle as we know what we are paying before leaving, taxis can be and are expensive in vegas.

some taxis will sometimes go the "wrong" way to boost up the fair.

the shuttle doesnt take that long, maybe 20 mins from airport to hotel and have alot more room in them.

shuttle everytime to and from airport and defo deuces on the strip. 2 dollars one way, 5 dollars all day (24 hours).

"2 dollars one way, 5 dollars all day (24 hours)."

The Deuce is now $3 one way, $7 for an all-day pass. Please try to avoid posting information that is no longer current.

Definitely take a cab. The lines may seem long at the airport but they usually move very quickly. Most people want to start their vacation as soon as possible rather than taking a tour of the back parts of hotels. Just tell the diver to take Swenson as a way of avoiding the tunnel (which would be more expensive).

There have been many posts from people who have tried to use a shuttle to get back to the airport. The shuttle either didn't come on time or didn't come at all. Cabs are always available at the hotels.

what does "best" mean to you?

for us it's a limo - we value time and conveneince and don't want to waste time waiting for a taxi or taking a shuttle.

others like a shuttle, many prefer a taxi, renting a vehcile our using the bus system.

each has it's own costs associated with it - the less money the less convenient/slower.

None are "best" for everyone - just different.

To Paris the cheapest option is the bus system.

If you use a taxi no need to book in advance, they are plentiful. How many in your party? If 4 or more a limo can be cheaper than 2 taxis.
