    i know I’ve heard about it on here before...
    If we wanted to just grab a limo to take 10 people from Cosmo (area) to downtown..what do y’all think would be the price and best way to go about it?
    @paperposter maybe?
    Like..walk up to one of the many that are always parked in front of Bellagio and say “Hey, $60 to downtown?”

    We got a party bus limo that way....just walked up and asked how much to our location. You could reserve one through Presidential.

    That is exactly what we did once with a group of 5 or 6, though it was back to mid-strip after dinner downtown.

    This was at least 4 or 5 years ago, can't remember exact cost, but it was somewhere in the $50-75 range.

    Would you consider doing two UberXLs? That way you’ll have the on demand convenience. One UberXL is about $25 from Cosmo to downtown.

    I’d say use the price on the site as a baseline. And often things are negotiable. Come in a little lower when asking.

    ive never seen a limo charge less than a hundred just to go strip to strip for a side job ,there are politics I belive they have to take care of the doormen for the limo lead or u do,there vultures . ive never seen a strip to downt deal negotiated sorry .

    I belive theres a 2 hour minuim if u book ahead.


    I would do ubers its only like 15$ to 20 for 4 people per uber or get the larger uber.. everyone does uber.


    if there at the bellagio there waiting for a high roller 60$ might work at circus circus , 100 to 150 might work at belagio..

    also depends ion time and day

    We grabbed a limo for 9 for $80 down the strip last weekend. May depend a lot on the size of limo readily available.

    Make an offer...they don’t make anything extra when they are not moving!

    Damn - I’ll have to catch you next time.

    Is this a playing trip or just burning though comps?

    I just meant use that price as a starting point. If a driver even has a 10 passenger on site you could say you’ve got the cash right here right now. Maybe they go for it. Otherwise, UberXL.

    Re: the Uber XL suggestions, with 10 people, you'll need 2 XLs. Since you're already splitting into two rides, might as well split into three and take regular ubers.

    You will easily get three ubers for the price of one uber XL, there's really no value there. Unless you are trying to get like 5 or 6 people somewhere, and really don't want to take two different vehicles. I've priced out two ubers vs uber XL many times when out with a group of people, it's never even close to being a similar value.

    there will probably be a few idle limos outside cosmo. if you tell the cab line guy that you want a limo downtown, he can call them over and you can negotiate on the spot. i bet your quote would be 70-80+tip

    $100 should cover it. We grab limos, without a reservation, every trip outside our hotel. Just walk up and tell the dude you need a limo for 10. If you decide to use the driver, get the drivers business card when you pay him upon arrival and tell him you'll need a ride back after a few hours. He'll tell you to call him when you're ready.

    Have fun Tim.
