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, I’ll 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.

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? I suggest checking out our complete overview of Las Vegas airport transportation options here.
Personally, I usually take an Uber or Lyft from the airport to and from the 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.
