Thrifty Car Rental Locations

I have been looking at prices to rent a car to go see the Grand Canyon while I am in Las Vegas. The best deal by far seems to be with Thrifty - $150 for 3 days with a convertible or $80 economy car. However, is the airport the only place to pick up the car? Ideally would like to pick up from Flamingo and drop off at Planet Hollywood.

It probably will still work out a lot cheaper getting a taxi to and from the airport to pick up/drop the car.

Have you checked Dollar car rental? They have locations all down the strip, they may charge slightly more than the airport though.

Your question has a few flaws in it.

Why can you not pick up at the airport and return it to the airport? Are you renting just for a few days of your trip and will not keep the car for your entire stay?

Thrifty has not many locations other then in the ariport at LV.

Dollar rent car has Many locations in many of the Hotels on the strip.

IS the reason you want to pick-up from Flamingo and drop of at PH because you are staying at both of them?

Sorry - spending a few days in the Flamingo then plan to rent a car and head to Grand Canyon and surrounding area for a few days. Will then head back to Las Vegas and stay at Planet hollywood for a night before flying back to the UK the next morning. Don't want a car when we are on the strip so not for whole length of stay

When you're coming back from your trip, drop one passenger off with the luggage at PH. You continue a block up the street and drop the car at Flamingo, then walk back.

If you're alone stop at PH, tell the valet you'll be there maybe half an hour just checking in, do it, come back and follow above instructions.
