Las Vegas for Senior Citizens


For the savvy traveller, who is keen to do some research before their visit, a trip to spectacular Las Vegas can be surprisingly good value with excellent services for senior travellers. In such a popular destination, companies are willing to offer considerable discounts as they compete for your business. Make sure you take advantage of these, as some prior information and forward-planning can reap rich rewards.

At the outset, when booking flights to Las Vegas, you must tell the agent you are entitled to a senior discount - this can save you a considerable amount of money.

If you have a disability, let the agent know you will need a wheelchair and someone to take you from the ticket desk to the boarding gate for both your outward and return flight. This is a free service provided by all airlines, but it is customary to give a tip.

Arriving in Las Vegas at McCarran International Airport, you will be one of more than 10 million passengers a year to use North America's 10th busiest, and the world's 16th busiest airport. With passenger numbers this high, the airport is efficient at serving its customers and a taxi and limousine service is available 24 hours a day. Every 15 minutes, there is an airport shuttle to take you to the Strip and downtown hotels at a reasonable rate. If you're travelling light with only carry-on luggage, you can take the CAT (Citizen Area Transit) bus, upon which seniors pay a reduced fare if they have an ID issued by the local transport authority.

Before travelling, check with your accommodation to see if they provide a free airport pick-up and return service as many hotels, motels and resorts do.

Many Strip hotels have people movers (moving walkways) at the entrance which can be a very welcome sight on arrival. If you stand to the right, those in a hurry can pass on the left. Hotel staff are highly experienced in assisting visitors with accessibility needs, and you can expect an excellent level of service - again, it's worth remembering that tipping is the custom.

Discount passes are widely available and popular in Las Vegas. The Las Vegas Power Pass can be purchased for one, two, three, or five days, giving entry to tours and attractions at a combined value of over $500 in admission charges. The pass comes with maps, a brochure outlining all the attractions included ,from The Liberace Museum to The Eiffel Tower Experience, and gives you "skip the line" privileges putting you at the front of the queue.

The Las Vegas Meal Ticket includes one breakfast, one lunch, and one dinner per day at a choice of restaurants. You can spend your time choosing you favourites for one low price.

For repeat visitors, the Las Vegas Bite Card is valid for a year, giving good discounts at more than ten hotels and casinos, and shows, restaurants, tours and attractions.

The variety of shows in Las Vegas caters for a broad selection of tastes, with many that would appeal to senior visitors. Barry Manilow regularly draws in the crowds at Paris Las Vegas, as does David Copperfield at the MGM Grand. Getting around downtown Las Vegas can be confusing, so if in doubt ask at your hotel or motel to assist you with planning a cab or bus journey.
