Transportation from Orlando to Cocoa Beach area?
 
Planning to book on the Glory in September. Flying to Orlando. Need info as to the best / most reasonable way to transport from airport to Cocoa Beach. Flying in early so transfers from Carnival are not an option. Hope to be staying at Quality Suites on N. Atlantic Boulevard. Thank you

Rent a car at the Orlando airport (MCO) with drop off in Cocoa Beach. Keep it for transportation while there. There are no drop off charges in Florida. Make your reservation before hand. Depends on the size of car to determine cost. Should be less than $40 per day. This is cheaper than taking a shuttle bus.

HI Sharon, We too will fly in Friday. Looking at several hotels in the area Quality Suites was fairly reasonable and had a shuttle to the port for $3.00 a person. Undecided as to how to transport from Orlando Airport to the hotel. It is a long ride about 45 minutes so a taxi will be pricey. Ray has suggested renting a car. I am leaning towards that.

I had just recently looked into this. I called Thrifty and they said that they should be starting a shuttle from the rental office to the piers starting in April. Thrifty also had some pretty good prices too.

Hi Matt, Thank you for the info. I was going to rent a car. I would much rather leave the driving to someone else. I will chack it out today.
