Flights to Las Vegas
What to know before you fly to Las Vegas?
As the entertainment capital of the world, there are perhaps more things to do in this city than any destination you’ve visited before. Your flights to Las Vegas will bring you to a dazzling, neon, 24/7 town, and here are few things to keep in mind: Tipping is a widely expected custom across the United States and a tip may vary between 15 and 20% of your pre-tax bill. In Las Vegas, it’s customary to also tip taxi drivers and tour guides.
You’ll need to purchase a US electrical adaptor before you depart, and if you’re planning on gambling at the casinos, it might be worth brushing up on some casino ‘lingo’ so you don’t miss any tips or tricks!
