Default Car Rental in Orlando

Our plan is to rent a car at the airport and eventually end up in Pt. Canaveral, returning the car the morning of the cruise. My question is does anyone know if any of the car rental companies in Pt. Canaveral shuttle you to the pier after we bring the car back to them?

Which rental company are you looking at. I think many if not all the major ones will shuttle to the pier, but when asking about rental, just ask. Most are right there anyway, airport and pier are right next to each other....

Yep,
Very close, their properties actually are side by side, but you have to go around and get out of the airport and then into the pier area, so a 10 minute taxi ride from the airport and many car rental agencies all there. It shouldn't be any problem.

Donna, I think you might be thinking of Port Everglades in Ft Lauderdale. Port Canaveral is about 60 miles East of Orlando airport.

We have used Budget Rental cars. It is the closest to the port and they offer a free port shuttle.

Thanks LV2B. We were thinking about using Budget anyway. The problem was we kept getting Budget's main number, and not the PT. Canaveral number to ask them about driving us back to the Port. Could you answer a couple more questions for us please? Do you have to pay a fee to enter the cruise port to go to the cruise terminal? And, do you know how close the car rental place is to the Radisson hotel?

If you are going to use Budget . They will transfer all passengers plus luggage directly to the cruise port . Thats happened to us in 2008.

I don't know anything about a fee to enter the port. Budget is less than half mile from the Radisson. The addresses are 8401 and 8701. The port is less than a mile from Budget. We are staying at the Radisson and using Budget in August again. I did see on Google Maps a Hertz location close to the Country Inn & Suites. I haven't been back for 7 years so I know things have changed.

RE: your name Mustang Sally - I am coming in also for my class reunion from Merritt Island High School, the city next to Cocoa Beach and we are the Mustangs and our mascot was Mustang Sally! Fond memories.

I don't recall any fee to enter the port. There is a security check though...

LV2B - funny thing about my name. My name is not Sally, nor do I have a Mustang - anymore. When I got my first Mustang, my husband nicknamed me Mustang Sally and it kind of stuck. (I always did love the song though). I do not have the car anymore, but he still calls me Sally. Anyway - Go Mustangs!
