Maybe this can be sticky'd and others can add to this.. I see many of the same questions posted in this section all the time. WHERE TO RENT: Your best bet is to book directly with whatever rental car company you choose, most of the majors will allow you to cancel your reservation with no penalties if you go direct. This will also allow you to see your full price with taxes and fees. Other places to rent are priceline, orbitz, travelocity and all the other major travel websites. Many swear by these, but check the details carefully as you may incur additional fees (such as not including tax) and might not be able to cancel your reservation without paying a fee. Orbitz and other sites like it are a good way to compare prices. I recommend using these as price research, then leave their website and book directly at the rental car companies website. Also, when dealing with a "non major" places such as Fox, US Rent a Car, Savemor, etc.. Check rental details carefully as many of these will not honor your personal car insurance in case of an accident, while almost all of the majors will. WHAT COMPANY IS THE BEST/WHO SHOULD I USE? Truth be told, most of the major car rental companies are the same. However experiences do differ and quality does range a bit. Do a search on this board first before posing a question.. chances are several people have your answer already! RENTAL CODES/DISCOUNTS: Discount codes for rental cars are fairly easy to get. Check rentalcodes.com as its always a good first bet. Also check your credit card company website, any wholesale stores you are a member of (like Costco) and other associations (AAA, AARP). Usually doing a web search for discount codes works great too. (such as a search "Alamo discount codes" in google) INSURANCE: Often the question of "Should I buy the optional coverage at the rental car counter?" comes up. Most of the time you do not have to accept this additional fee if you do your research first. Most car insurance policys in the US will cover your rental car with the same amount of coverage you have on your personal car. Be sure to check with your Insurance company first however. Also, most credit card companies offer additional insurance to your rental. This site compares which companies cover what. http://www.creditcards.com/credit-card-news/rental-car-insurance-policies-1273.php As always, double check by calling your credit card issuer to be sure that you are covered when renting a car. HOW TO GET YOUR CAR: All major car rental companies at McCarran International Airport are served at the McCarran "Rent A Car Center". There are a few smaller companies located off site from the Rent A Car Center, but they do not operate shuttles to the Airport. There is ONE shuttle that will bring to you the RACC (Rent A Car Center) for ALL rental companies. If you do not use one of the companies served at the RACC, you will need to shuttle to the Rent A Car Center FIRST, then take another to your rental car company. Shuttles run about every 5 minutes through Terminals 1 and 2, outside the baggage claim area (see McCarran Airport website for exact location or follow posted signs). The trip is approximately 5 minutes to the RACC. Once inside the RACC you will see all the car rental company counters. The RACC is located at 7135 Gilespie St, Las Vegas, NV 89136, which is just off Las Vegas Blvd and the 215 highway. There are gas stations located at the intersection LV Blvd and E. Warm Springs Rd, and several more down E. Warm Springs Rd. These are good to know so you can top off your rental before returning.
