Something to think about when you want to get around Las Vegas is saving money using taxis. Taxi stands are at every hotel and most businesses around the Strip and Downtown Las Vegas. Most all taxi cabs offer you the convenience of using a debit or credit card to pay your fare. Please know that while this is convenient, it does come with a price! Most cab companies charge $3-$4 extra dollars for this convenience per transaction.
