Last year, when I cruised on the Carnival Triumph, I was able to rent a car from Alamo. I drove it to Miami and dropped it off there. While there, Alamo had courtesy shuttles that would take you from their Miami Airport location to the Port of Miami. And then upon returning from the cruise, they would take you from the port back to their Miami location (near the airport). Upon the returning from the cruise however, they were low on cars and would only pick-up passengers with confirmed reservations. Fortunately I did have such a confirmed reservation. Anyway, everything worked out well and I saved a lot of money verses flying or driving my own car down there and parking it there for a week.

Anyway, I wonder if the car rental companies provide the same courtesy bus transportation to and from there location in Fort Lauderdale to Port Everglades?

I did talk to one car rental supervisor in Orlando and he said "no". But I wonder if he knew what he was talking about. All the other car rental employees in Orlando did not have a clue. Car Rental companies need to do better informing their employees and the public about such "location to cruise port" courtesy transportation that some of them provide.
