On my next trip to Vegas, I am considering flying into LAX and renting a car to drive into Vegas. Can anybody give me a total cost on this that has done it before? I should say that I am totally clueless on renting a car. I have never needed to rent a car. I will be renting a normal car, nothing fancy. Drive it one way from LA to Vegas. Park it overnight, drop it off in Vegas next day. Is there a cost to drop it off at different location? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Yes I would also be taking the insurance as well.
