    I know there are a couple of threads on this, but we have been loyal to Presidential the last 6 trips, but with their price hike (as of 8/1) I decided to call around and get some quotes....
    Has anyone ever used Five Star Limo or Las Vegas Limousine?
    Their pricing is not bad, so I wanted to get some input from some VMB'ers if possible. I suppose I could Yelp them....but Ill try this out

    I have emails in to other companies too, just waiting on responses!

    Thanks!

    I've only used Presidential but I agree, with their recent rate hike I'll shop around the next time I plan to use a limo. I'll be interested in anyone here has used either of these.

    I'll be there in two weeks and plan on doing the walk up service. I was reading it costs 55-70 for walk up one way. Hopefully that price hasn't gone up as well

    I called 8 different companies,
    I decided to stick with Presidential, they have the stretch SUV that I like, (seats 6)
    and the price is good in comparison.

    5 Star had a good price on a standard Stretch, however, all of their Yelp reviews were pretty terrible.

    Ugh - Presidential raised their prices? I'll probably still use them, but still...

    I did. I never got a return call from them. But I wanted Presidentials stretch SUV for 6 people. I guess they are the only ones with the smaller stretch SUV.

    I thought i was imagining things.....Presidential seemed to increase by a lot!! $177 for a limo airport pickup/drop off. I don't think it was more than $130 last time. that's insane.

    Yeah I think their old sedan pricing was under 100 and now it's 126. Their suv pricing looks like it's up at least 30

    For anyone interested - I contacted Presidential today to see about one-way airport transfer. We usually only use them from the airport to the hotel. On the way back we cab it. For a three passenger pickup in the stretch limo it's $114. You won't find the one way on the site - I'm setting it up via email. I assume you could call it in, too.

    Just booked mine today too. Just the one way. Last time it was $75, now $114. Not really worth it, but what the hay. YOLO!

    I paid $144 for the stretch limo last year and now it's $177. Even though we've enjoyed arriving with Ted to greet us, I may have to find a cheaper option.

    Ted's awesome!! We always request him. But agreed - not sure over $200 once tip is included is particularly worth it, even though Ted's a swell guy.

    I know we could do the Town Car or SUV for less, but my wife loves having the rose and cheap champagne along with it. Not to mention getting to stretch out in a stretch and chat with Ted after being crammed into a SW seat.

    Presidential is now charging an hour and a half on the pick up and discontinued the rose (which has the wife not happy at all). Increased rates with less service is not the best business model......

    ??? ??? I'm not being a jerk but you pay for the LIMO? Don't most of the casinos have Limos? I'm offer a LIMO every trip and never take it? So I'm thinking I should use this free comp next trip.

    Funny thing I was on here talking about this the last trip and my host said I would have sent a Limo to get you but I didn't give him my flight number.


    The casino Limos have got to cheaper, but I wouldn't know since I don't take the Limos. Reason is I only come alone so think the Limo is a waste.

    I inconvenience my friends to pick me up or get a rental car. NOTE TO SELF use the LIMO next time.

    VMB is very useful. Opens my eyes to more things about Vegas.


    I asked another member how he got to the airport and he said LIKE MOST Normal people do he took a LIMO.


    I hate taxi mostly the long lines and I get LONG hauled and thought the driver was doing me a favor and I tipped him $20. Stupid I could have taken a LIMO.


    Note for PPHOLD email the host flight number and take the Limo....

    The hour and a half is actually useful. Unless we're staying South we kind of feel like we're rushing w/the hour time period (depending on traffic etc).
