Good luck renting a car at age 20. Maybe MomMom will loan you one of her cars for the duration of your stay, or better yet, chauffeur you around while you're here.

Ha Ha, very funny. You truly are arrogant, or at least you're trying to be......something and fit in.

If the kid wants to, he can go to Enterprise at the airport. They'll charge almost $30 more per day, but they'll rent to drivers under the age of 25.

21 and up yet, but not under 21.

I'm still hoping to meet you at that Cougar bar you hang out at.

Unfortunately, he is correct. Back when I was 18 years old, my car got stolen. Even know I had full coverage with rental car allowance, no company would allow it saying I had to be a minimum of 21. I ended up having my parents get the rental, and driving their car instead.

Tell me about. I just turned 18 years old and I was brutally car jacked for my Mustang. The insurance company gave me a brand new Pontiac Grand Prix. My parents of course took that, and gave me an old hoopty (1977 Olds Cutlass Supreme) that was puke brown. I was really upset since I was paying for my own insurance too. Needless to say, being 18 was not a good time for me.

Default CAT bus

Vegas does have a pretty good bus system. I've had to use it a time or two particularly when my car was in the shop and I had to be other places. Having a car is not really a necessity, but is an adjustment if you are used to your own transportation.

Having a car here IS a necessity for most of us. I have to go to work 5 days a week, and there is no bus that goes there. If the OP is going to visit the strip, and stay on the strip, I agree the bus is adequate. However, for anyone living here working a full time job, forget it, a car is a necessity.
