Top tips for finding a cheap flight out of Las Vegas (LAS)

Buy your ticket during the Goldilocks Window

Although there isn’t a day of the week when airline tickets are routinely cheaper, there are windows of time before a planned trip when fares tend to be at their lowest. We call this the Goldilocks Window—not too early, not too late—and it’s when you stand the best chance of getting a good deal on a flight. For domestic trips, the Goldilocks Window is 1-3 months before a flight. For international trips, it’s 2-8 months beforehand.

If you’re traveling during the high tourist season, however, or if you have very specific dates when you need to fly, we recommend starting to look at fares even further in advance. Anyone who needs to fly over the busy Thanksgiving weekend or during the December holidays, for instance, should start looking at fares in June or July.

And keep in mind that last-minute airfare bargains aren’t terribly common. In fact, the price tag on tickets typically jumps 21, 14, and 7 days before a flight, so book before those points if at all possible.

Give the Greek Islands Trick a try

If you’ve been paying attention to ticket prices to your dream vacation spot, and they never seem to get lower, it may be time to give our beloved Greek Islands Trick a try. Let’s say you’ve got your heart set on a romantic summer getaway to Santorini, but fares from Las Vegas seem stuck in the $1,500 range. Instead of booking a flight to Santorini, consider flying from Las Vegas to London for around $775 roundtrip. From London, you could find a fare to Santorini that’s less than $200—which means you’re saving several hundred bucks.

The idea here is to get close to your dream destination relatively cheaply—in this case, from Las Vegas to a giant European gateway—and then book a separate trip on a low-cost airline, a train, or even a ferry. Yes, this method does require a little more logistical work on your end, but it can also result in huge savings. And keep in mind that although we call this the “Greek Islands Trick,” it works just as well for destinations all over the world.

Consider alternative airports (even if they’re far away)

Las Vegas is such a popular destination that Harry Reid International Airport is well-connected to cities all over the world. We see exceptionally great deals on fares from lots of different airports, though, and even if a super cheap fare departs from an airport far away from Las Vegas, it may still end up being cheaper than flying directly from your home airport.

Deals like this may not happen every day, but they’re memorable: Atlanta to Chile for $63 roundtrip, for instance. For that price, even when you add a separate ticket from Las Vegas to Atlanta for around $100, you’re still getting perhaps the best deal on a trip that you’ll ever get in your life. In other words, it never hurts to check out the best deals from departure airports besides Las Vegas.

Plan trips when it’s cheaper to fly

Summer is the high tourist season for many parts of the world. Families have more time to travel when kids are out of school, after all—and even if school schedules don’t hinder your trip planning, the balmy weather has a lot of appeal for people who need a holiday.

High season means higher demand for flights, of course, and airlines raise fares accordingly. Traveling during the shoulder seasons instead, usually spring and fall, offers a great combination of lower prices (on airfare and other things) and nice weather. And, if weather isn’t a concern, you can save even more money if you book a trip during the low season.

If you can’t be flexible with your travel planning and you have to travel during the peak season, then at least aim for flying on the days when flights are cheaper (Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays) and avoid the days when flights tend to be more expensive (Fridays and Saturdays).

Sign up for email fare alerts

Tracking airfare fluctuations is time-consuming and somewhat tedious, but it’s also one of the best ways to get the best deal on a flight. Fortunately, you don’t have to do all the work manually. Several months before a trip, sign up for an email fare alert for the itinerary you want. You’ll then be notified when the price moves by a certain amount or drops into your target price range. By doing this well ahead of when you plan to buy the ticket, you’ll be able to see the price changes and be more confident that you know a good deal when you see one. Keep in mind, though, that if your travel plans are flexible, you’ll have to set up a fare alert for each itinerary.

How early should I arrive to Las Vegas Harry Reid International Airport (LAS) before my flight?

The general recommendation from both airlines and many airports is that travelers should arrive two hours before departure if they’re flying domestically and three hours beforehand if they’re flying internationally. There are some factors unique to your trip and departure airport, though that may mean you don’t need to be there quite so early.

  • How big is the airport, and where is your departure gate? LAS isn’t a gigantic airport, so many travelers only need to walk from check-in to security to their gate. The C concourse is technically connected to Terminal 1, but there is a tram to make getting from security to the C gates a bit faster—which is helpful because the C concourse is a long one. And, if you’re flying out of the D concourse, that’s in an isolated building. It’s connected to both Terminal 1 and Terminal 3 via the airport tram. Since the two terminals aren’t interconnected, you need to be sure to arrive at the correct terminal in order to check in. In other words, the airport may seem relatively small, but its design means that it may take you longer than you’d expect to get from curbside to your gate.

  • Can you check in online? If you can check in before arriving at the airport, that is a huge time-saver. Not only that, airlines have cutoff times for checking in (usually 30-60 minutes before departure), after which you won’t be allowed to get on the plane. If, for some reason, you’re unable to check in ahead of time, give yourself extra time to check in at the counter or an airline kiosk at the airport.

  • Are you checking any bags? There’s also a cutoff time for checking luggage (usually 45-60 minutes before departure), after which point you won’t be allowed to check anything. If you have bags to check, be sure to allow plenty of time to do that at the airport.

  • Will the airport be busy? The Las Vegas Airport isn’t necessarily huge, but it can get very, very busy. In addition to the usual times when airports tend to get busier (holiday weekends, peak tourist seasons), Las Vegas plays host to enormous events on a regular basis—and when they end, the lines at LAS security can be extremely long. On average, the wait time at Harry Reid International Airport is almost 20 minutes, and frequently the wait is longer.

There may be times when you can get away with arriving at the Las Vegas Airport a mere 1-1.5 hours before your flight but allocating at least two hours is usually the safer option. During busier travel times, or if you need to check in or check bags at the airport, 3-4 hours ahead of departure may be advisable.

What are the different transportation options for going from the city center to Las Vegas Harry Reid International Airport (LAS)?
