Freebies are increasingly difficult to come by in Las Vegas while new, “innovative”, fees are multiplying. This disparity has Las Vegas visitors looking to save money whenever they can while making minimal sacrifices. One way some look to preserve their gambling, dining, and entertainment budget is by staying at a property that provides free shuttle service to and from the airport. After all, a taxi or Uber ride to many of these properties can run $40-$60 round trip.
With that value focus in mind, we will maintain an updated list of Las Vegas hotels that offer guests free transportation to and from Harry Reid International Airport.
Note that all airport shuttles listed below can be found at Terminal 1 on the zero level. If you fly into terminal 3, take the inter-terminal shuttle which picks up every 15-30 minutes. The inter-terminal shuttle stop can be found at the zero level of Terminal 3.
Downtown Vegas – Airport Free Shuttles
Plaza: Shuttle service to and from Plaza is temporarily suspended. Plaza’s free shuttle runs from the resort to the airport from 5 am to 7 pm in 2-hour increments and from the airport to the resort from 6 am to 8 pm. Plaza recommends guests book their preferred time slot 72 hours in advance here as options can fill quickly.
El Cortez: Running one way only from the resort to the airport, and not vice versa, El Cortez’s free shuttle will provide a ride for guests to the airport from 7 am -2 pm on the hour daily. Get up to date shuttle details here.

What To Do If Your Hotel Doesn’t Have a Shuttle
Unfortunately, very few hotels in Las Vegas still offer a free shuttle to and from the airport. So, how do you get from the airport to your hotel if a shuttle isn’t in the cards? We suggest checking out our complete overview of Las Vegas airport transportation options here.
Personally, we usually take an Uber or Lyft from the airport to our resort.
Why? Rideshare apps are almost always cheaper than a taxi, and while paid airport shuttles exist, they make way too many stops to make them worth the cost savings.
Here’s where you can find the Uber/Lyft pick-up locations at the airport in Las Vegas.
