I am staying at the Palazzo with four friends in August (for 8 nights) and one day we are playing golf at Wolf Creek so we need to hire a van for 5 people and 5 sets of golf clubs. We thought we might as well get the van for two days and maybe go shopping or drive to Hoover Dam etc on the other day while we have some transport. I see on-line that Avis have a branch/desk at the Palazzo so I thought it would be easier to pick up and drop off at the hotel to save going back to the airport. However when I did some on-line quotes, the two day hire (for a Dodge Grand Caravan) was $293.20 from Avis at the Palazzo and only $178.32 from Rentalcars.com at the Airport. Is that standard? Much dearer to hire cars from the hotel? I believe there is a shuttle that you can catch from hotel to airport to go and pick up a rental - is that a simple thing? Or is it worth paying the extra for less hassle? Also, any suggestions of any half day or day trips from Las Vegas while we have the van. Thanks.
