Of course the best answer is anytime, but let’s look at the busiest times of the year. We will also cover the slow periods, where room rates and airfares can be inexpensive, or to put it bluntly, cheap. Let’s face it being cheap can save a lot of money. I have gone to Las Vegas several times a year for the last ten years, and I’ve only gone twice when I did not look for and get a great deal, and that was because the vacations were free!

The busiest times of the year in Las Vegas are traditionally on holidays such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the big one New Years eve. Right after the holidays every year it’s time for the Super Bowl, this is also and extremely busy time. If you plan to be in Las Vegas any of these times you need to plan well ahead of time and make your reservations early, or you will be paying a premium price for your trip.

Every weekend of the year hundreds of thousands of people come to Las Vegas for a weekend getaway. So the hotel and airfare rates arriving Thursday through Saturday are going to be higher than normal. If you are looking for a good deal, consider going Sunday through Thursday, you can usually save a great deal of money especially if you book in advance.

Most people fail to realize that in the summer months of July and August are the slow times in Las Vegas mainly due to the heat. Since most people stay indoors most of the time, and when people are outside it’s usually heading somewhere else that is inside, it is not a big factor to a lot of people, so this is an excellent opportunity to get a great vacation package deal.

You should always check online well ahead of time and see what kind of vacation package deals you can get no matter what time of the year your heading to Las Vegas. The savings can be tremendous, and that is more money you can spend gambling, going to a show, or shopping.
