Default Best way to get from Houston airport to Glveston port

My daughter and her future husband will be flying into Houston to leave out of Galveston. A transfer is $80 each round trip. Does anyone know if this is the cheapest way or the fastest way to get there? Any suggestions?


Thanks

Sounds reasonable to me. Considering the cost of a rental car for the trip both ways it is a good deal. Try to contact Galveston Limoseine Service.

Taxi will be more expensive I think. The cruise ship transfer is hard to beat. They will drop you off next to the ship. If they are staying over night in Galveston before the cruise the shuttle will take you to the hotel. If the hotel has a shuttle service they will take you to the port. We stayed at Holiday Inn in Galveston and would do it again. If you do the hotel shuttle be sure to book your time early so you can get the time you want. Early shuttle times do fill up quickly at the hotel.
