You can pay a small fortune to access your own cash when visiting places such as Vegas, for there can be fees and charges or using ATM’s and the suchlike, and with that in mind we shall today be taking a quick look at some of the best and most cost effective ways to access your cash if you are planning a trip to Vegas.

Talking of ATM’s you will be best advised to steer clear from ATM’s found on any casinos gaming floor, for you can end up paying around $4.25 on top of your withdrawal just for the pleasure of taking your own money out of the machine!

If you have no other option but to use an ATM then consider using one that is located off a casinos gaming floor, you will often find ATM’s on the shopping level of most casino resorts and experience has taught us the fees for using those machines are around $2.50, and as such you will not be paying almost double that amount if you do track down those machines.

Many people take pre-paid debit Cards to travel cash cards as they are also known, however the fees and charges you will be hit with for using such cards can also be expensive and there are often fees on top of the ATM fee when you withdraw cash when using such a card so keep that in mind!

Western Union and Money Gram are two other options to consider if you do get short of cash in Vegas, however there are some massive fees and charges to be paid or using both of those two money transfer options.

You really should only ever use them if you have no other option for getting access to your own cash as you will end up paying big time for using either of those two money transfer services.

Many people will wire their money to the casino before they go, and then draw it out from the Cashiers Cage as and when they need it. This is one of the most cost effective methods you could opt to use as they casino will be only too happy to accommodate you as they will of course have a chance of winning that money off you when you gamble at their venue.

You could also consider getting a line of credit from a casino, but only do so if you have the means to pay off your credit line when the request is made for you to pay it. You will also find pawn shops all over Nevada, and they can be used in an absolute emergency, but probably best that you do not use them to access money for gambling purposes!
