Cheapest way to get to Vegas!

Hi everyone

It's my good lady wife's 40th next February and I know she's keen to go to Vegas...

We usually travel independently and book all the various bits as a seperate transaction, but this looks expensive and complicated for Vegas!

Who typically does the best deals there?
Is it better to fly to LA and drive (I think its about 4 hours?)

Can anyone enlighten me with the benefit of their experience on this?

Thanks in advance!

Cheers
James

Why is it complicated to book things separately? I did it and I'm an idiot.

There's a massive thread of ideas/deals/links and offers on MSE. (http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=653895).

Take a look at the coupons talked about, you get get just about everything (apart from hotel rooms) for 2 for 1 and great deals on meals and trips. . .

Booking rooms directly on the hotel/casino website can be cheaper (at least it was five years ago).
I then used opodo for the flights (again, five years ago) which went via quidco for cashback.

MGM has good sized rooms and is on the monorail route but may be a little far down the strip. If you want the best placement then you may want the Venitian (or there abouts) as it's right near all the action like the Bellagio fountain and the Treasure Island pirates.

P.S
If you have a fear of heights don't go for the Luxor as it made me queasy just looking up (and it's right down the bottom).

Indeed she is and so am I lol

Booked independently just over a year ago, got great deals and stayed at the Treasure Island which is in the midst of things.........fly direct in my opinion with Virgin. It is her 40th for crying out loud ;)

Stay at the Bellagio. Go on. The rooms are shiny.

My son has just been, did it all through Virgin. Total cost of flight and stay at the Bellagio for 5 days was £595.
Had the best time ever! What happened in Vegas stayed in Vegas!

Love some of the responses!! :D

Thanks everyone for the help - I am pricing the individual parts, will also look at the MSE thread, and will check out Virgin Holidays as I have Clubcard vouchers burning a hole in my pocket!

Just back from Vegas and Hawaii, flying back from LA. MGM is not a problem location wise as you can get a free train ride (not the monorail which you pay for and on the opposite side of the road) from Crystals/Aria to the Bellagio.

We asked Trailfinders to put an itinery together and they were in fact cheaper than booking each leg youself. They were able to upgraded us to Premium Economy for just £10 extra per person on the return leg which we would not have been able to do if booking flights ourselves. Plus, they don't charge any extra for credit card payments so there was a nett saving as we got some decent cashback on the credit card.

You could fly to LA, stay for a day or two then drive to Vegas. That would be awesome. No idea on price though sorry.

Commit a serious crime in the USA...get a transfer to another prison at the same time as cyrus the virus and and you will eventually land there for free,although you may die in the process

I got virgin direct flights for £521 return and then booked Circus Circus through expedia although they did deals on their own site. Was lovely hotel, no kids in adult areas and best bed I have ever slept in! Book a 24 hour dining buffet pass and if you work it right you can get 4 meals for around $35 inc champagne at weekends!
Have brill time its ace...
