    On Presential's website they have a an roundtrip package for $141. Anyone know of a better airport limo deal (McCarran to Cosmo)? I've read that typically the drivers will make a supply run if you ask. Is this true?

    I don't really know whether or not that's a good deal as I usually just get a sedan (~$100 RT from Presidential) if I don't have a comped limo from the casino. But yes, they'll definitely make a stop to pick up supplies. You have an hour from the time your plane lands. Unless your luggage takes a ridiculously long time, there should be plenty of time to stop for booze/snacks and still get you to Cosmo in under an hour.

    A very large Walgreens is directly across the street from Cosmo.

    I looked into the sedan pricing also. The limo just allows for more... ahem...privacy. :wink2:

    I did that $28 Bell Transportation Web special and it worked flawlessly.

    Describe 'better'.

    I've used Presidential for round trips 3 times now. Always on time, always willing to stop and always with a cold beverage ready (one time a cooler of beer instead of the 'champagne').

    You might find cheaper but I'll use Presidential every time.

    I just looked up Presidential and it says "includes a bottle of sparkling cider." Is this really the case? Who wants sparkling cider upon arrival to Vegas? Do they have a bottle of champagne you can buy once you get in?

    You're not in the limo long enough to worry about it.

    The website says cider, all you have to do is ask for Champagne and you will get it. Just add what you want within reason to the comments part. We add where we want to go, what we want to drink and who we want to drive, 12 trips in and they have nailed it every time. Trip 13 with Presidential in 7 days and I know I am going to get what I want!

    Just used them this past week, and they were great as normal.

    They also have an app now. At least for Android. Shows your reservation, and will even show where your driver is at. It's pretty accurate. Showed they were going to be at my hotel in about 5 min. As soon as I got done checking out, they were pulling up.

    Do you have to ask ahead of time? We're on a Presidential, and would definitely rather have some bubbly than some kiddie bubbly :p

    Just to answer the last couple of questions.

    I always book it online, well up to this point because now our driver has told us to just give him a call and he will take care of all of it. Ray is his name and he is service to the max.

    If you do book online or even call I would recommend that you ask for Champagne just to avoid any confusion. BTW I booked last Dec for my GF and her mother and requested Champagne, 2 roses and a strip tour, they were very happy to say the least. My experience has been that they will accommodate anything within reason.

    So, If we req a stop and champagne instead of cider, and they do everything, after the $160, what would a tip be,$30 ok? We tipped $18 last time, $3/person, but if they do something special, like a CVS stop & strip tour, $5/person with the 6 of us, is that good?

    Also, have you or anyone here, gotten the stretch SUV? We have 6 people, 2 bigger guys and I think that might be the best idea for us?
