Been to Vegas many times, this is the first AND second time a cab driver tried to long hauled me via I15. Arrived late Friday night, cab driver said roads flooded so he had to do I15 - crap..... Anyhow, I let it go, because I wanted to know what the $$$ difference is. total for 2 people from airport to Cosmo, via I15 was 23.80. Going home, got cab at Palazzo (we switched hotels mid trip)...he zoomed out off Palazzo and TRIED to get over to I15...I stopped him and said, "can you take the short route, down Koval and on Trop"...you should have seen how wide his eyes were, when I said Koval.... That trip was only 12.10.... So, it was 11.70 cheaper...and that was from Palazzo not Cosmo (cosmo is even closer to airport than Palazzo).... BE WARNED, I thought cab drivers were doing fine and not trying to long haul every tourist; but maybe they are changing back to their old ways.
