LAS VEGAS – Whether you’re traveling by plane or reindeer-drawn sleigh, it’s best to "Know Before You Go" prior to taking flight this holiday season. With nearly 1.5 million people expected to pass through during the Christmas and New Year’s travel period, it’s going to be a busy time at McCarran International Airport. Travelers can save themselves time and frustration by taking a few minutes to visit the newly redesigned www.mccarran.com for departure terminal and parking information, as well as links to other useful information such as TSA guidelines, where to shop at the airport for last-minute gifts, and pre-flight dining options. Below are some simple guidelines to improve your travel experience this holiday season.
Know which terminal is home to your airline – this information will determine where you should park.
For 24-hour parking information, including live updates on space availability, call (702) 261-5122.
Both Terminal 1 and Terminal 3 parking garages offer Long-Term parking at a rate of up to $16 per day, as well as Valet parking for up to $23 per day.
- McCarran offers terminal-specific Economy parking at a rate of up to $10 per day.
Economy-rate parking for Terminal 3 is available in the surface lot located just east of the Terminal 3 parking garage and within walking distance of the Level 1 pedestrian bridge leading into the terminal. When approaching the Terminal 3 parking garage, drivers should follow the posted directional signs to Surface parking in order to take advantage of the economy rate.
Picking up friends or family?
McCarran has a Cell Phone Lot located off of Kitty Hawk Way – just follow the posted signage. This short-term waiting area is offered free of charge and is open from 6 a.m – 1 a.m. daily.
- Once you’re on your way to Passenger Pick-Up, look for the numbered columns to make meeting up easier.
If your party isn’t at the curb yet, pull into Short Term parking to wait. Parking at the curb is prohibited, but the first 15 minutes in the lot are free. Be sure to use the exit lane reader, not a walk-up kiosk, to claim the free minutes.
