This Las Vegas bachelor party planning guide will take you through some key points of consideration, helping you effectively plan your budget and better understand what to expect for the celebration.

First Order of Business: Flights & Travel

Planning a trip to Las Vegas, the first order of business has to be your travel. No presuming you don’t live in the United States already, a transatlantic flight can set you back anywhere in the region of around £400 or higher if you’re travelling in a busy season. The smartest route to get there is to fly into Los Angeles Airport (LAX), from London the flight time is roughly 12 hours, and you’ll land just a few hours ahead of the time you took off as London is 8 hours ahead of Los Angeles. Once you’re in L.A. there is still another 250 or so miles to travel to get to the Las Vegas strip. You can choose to take another cheap flight to Las Vegas, or opt for a coach to drive you for 4 hours until you reach Sin City.

Once you have everything planned and your are just waiting for the trip to come, you can always get a few hands of online casino poker in to get some extra practice. If poker is not your game, check out the best online live casino sites to see all other great table games with real dealers.
