5 Money Changers with Best Exchange Rates in Las Vegas

A trip to Las Vegas, a world-renowned resort city, is a time to relax in an exciting way and to spend money.

It wouldn’t hurt you to try your luck at the slot machines. It even has no chance to get hurt while shopping or going window-shopping at the Strip.

But before doing that, fill your wallet with US dollars first.

Like savvy travelers, you might prefer making payments via credit cards or withdrawing local currency from ATM machines using your ATM cards. These two are a good option.

But if you have cash to exchange, then this article is tailored for you. You can find below money changers with good rates and in good locations – located at major malls, near large supermarkets or department stores.

For those who are going to have either fun or serious games at casinos, exchanging money at the casino cashier counters, also known as casino cages, is a good choice. Those cages often offer very competitive rates and cash in traveler’s cheques. It is convenient since you will need to buy some chips at the cashier anyway.

Currency exchange service is available at almost all casinos at big hotels like Bellagio, Wynn Las Vegas, Flamingo, Tropicana, Planet Holywood, Monte Carlo, and MGM Grand.
