Las Vegas 2009 vacation deals increase

Las Vegas, Nevada at sunsetEconomy forces hotels and airlines to bundle vacation packages

Here's the deal. The economy is bad- especially in Las Vegas where tourism has dropped considerably in 2008. Now, 2009 doesn't look any better.

With the economic conditions today, some Las Vegas hotels have teamed up with airlines lie Southwest Airlines to bundle discounted vacation packages.

Some casino and off-Strip hotels have reduced their room rates and improved their own accomodations with perks like dinner and gaming coupons.

Savy travelers will find bargains in the midst of this economic turmoil. With thousands of new hotel rooms still under construction, the glut of vacancies will force hotels to keep rates low.
