We all remember our first time in Vegas — the lights of the Strip, the excitement of playing, and the first property that you ever stayed in. But like all first-timers, you probably made the same mistakes that we did. In today’s episode, Steve (LasVegasUK on Twitter) shares the top three things that he absolutely got wrong on his first trip to Vegas. In our conversation, we talk about why you should never book a property through third-parties, not even if your uncle is a travel agent, and why you should charge everything to your room and pay with a credit card. In a brief digression, we talk about Treasure Island, the first Vegas property that Steve stayed at, and why casino loyalty and loyalty programs may not be at the forefront of a first-timer’s mind. Steve discusses how he bound himself to a strict itinerary and why he now prefers to ditch the spreadsheets and go with the flow. Tune in to hear what Steve learned from his first Vegas trip, along with other tips on travelling smarter and getting the most out of your Vegas trip.
