Hi kteach, Be aware that many of the advertised rates you'll see online for rental cars will say something like "Rates starting from $__._ per day." These rates are based on renting from one location and returning the car to the same location full of gas. Call a few of the car rental agencies you're considering before you get down there and get, as Paul Harvey would say, the rest of the story. Renting from one location and dropping off at another often will have fees attached to the pricing. It may well be that the rental car would be cheaper but I'd be shocked if that were the case for a one way rental each direction. It may be worth any difference in cost, time and trouble to rent, to have your own transportation but be sure you're getting a real quote on what your cost will be before deciding for sure.

Cheers, Neil

You may want to consider a taxi, although I don't know what shuttles cost compared to taxis. When I went on my cruise back in October of 2007, the fare was a flat $24 from Miami Airport to the port.

Have you ever used this one?


I looked at them once but went with SuperShuttle that time. I needed to go from the airport in Miami to a hotel in Ft. Lauderdale, not to the airport, SS Miami was able to do that at a very reasonable price. If only it hadn't taken them 2 hours...

We stayed at the Florida Beaches last year and did not rent a car. Everywhere we went (airport, hotel, etc.) we were discouraged from using the Supershuttle because of the proliferation of stops. We opted for a cab--it seated four and I think the fare (two years ago this coming Sept.) was fixed at $68.00 at that time.
