How much is a cab ride from LAS to the Strip?

We paid $35 for a taxi ride from the airport to the Mirage last August which seemd high given the distance - 2 people with 1 bag each. The ride to the ariport from the Mirage was half that price?

Were we scammed on the ride in?? I am heading there on Wednesday again and would like to know what people recommend for getting from the airport to the strip?

Where on The Strip? Price will depend on where you are going.

Yes, sounds like you were overcharged.

Where are you headed on Wednesday? A taxi may still be an option if you educate yourself on potential route(s) and approximate fares.

yes, you were scammed.

the ride can cost, depending on where your staying, from 12 to 20 bucks, give or take.

I wonder if the driver took you went through the "Tunnel" and that is reason for the higher cost?

We were heading to The Mirage last time. This trip it's the Venetian.

I'm not sure of the route the driver took, but it was "scenic" and I do remember a tunnel!

We paid 18 to the Mirage in March. So you were overcharged. Tell the driver "no tunnel". Our driver wasn't very happy when we said this, but he didn't take it.

GypsyGirl - I kinda thought so - in the search option put in Tunnel and will be find plenty of info on Tripadvisor on "how NOT to get tunneled" in Vegas.
