If you’re staying at a hotel on The Strip or Downtown, parking can cost as much as $30 per day.

Even worse, casinos charge outrageous fees for parking because they know that most people will pay it to avoid the hassle of finding another place to park their car.

This Las Vegas parking guide will help you navigate the parking fees in Vegas and find the most affordable places to park.

Beware! Like Uber or Lyft, many Las Vegas hotels have surge parking fee structures for big holidays and events. Visitors may see a high fee on New Year’s Eve or for special events and concerts. It’s not uncommon to see self-parking rates of $50 or more during these times.

Parking fees also go up downtown on weekends and event nights. There are city parking garages, and street parking may be a more affordable option on busy nights downtown.
