Why It's a Deal A recent Kayak search found the lowest round-trip airfare between Chicago and Las Vegas starts at $250 in mid-April (American Airlines). Add to that $42 per person without taxes for two nights at the Excalibur Hotel & Casino Las Vegas, $78 per person including taxes for one night at the Cable Mountain Lodge, and $166 per person including taxes for two nights at the Radisson Woodlands Hotel, and you're already spending $536 on airfare and accommodations alone. A six-day economy car rental costs $392 per couple, bringing your total to $928 without this deal. This travel package saves you $289 per person, and includes all air, hotel, and car taxes and fees.
