Default Car rental return/getting to the port (MIAMI)

Hello, i'm new here and have a ?
We are taking our first cruise in Jan 2009 (4 night Bahamas on RCI), we chose this cruise because we needed to sail on a Monday. We are going to be in Fl for the 24 hr Rolex race the weekend before and will have a rental car that I am planning on returning in MIA.

My question is does anyone know if I return the rental car (Alamo) at MIA is it possible to catch a shuttle to the port (either alamos or RCI) or am I better off to get a cab?

I cant see paying to park a rental car for the 5 days at the port.

Thanks for any help.
Sue

You can return your car, and take the Alamo shuttle to the port...have a good cruise!

Thank you for your help! Now I can scratch that off my "Thing to worry/obsess about" list.

Thanks Linda, even I didn't know that. It is good to know. Is it true for all car rental agencies?

Also - how about returning the car at the port. Is that possible?

While it's been several years, we returned our car to Alamo, downtown. We found it a confusing area, and did have trouble finding it. We then took the shuttle over. I gave Alamo a buzz, to make sure they still do.

I know many yrs ago, there used to be some major rental companies, at the port, but I think they all have been closed. It's worth a phone call to the agency to make sure any others offer the shuttle, but I honestly think they all would.
