Default Transportation - Fort Lauderdale airport to Miami

Can someone help me with their travel expertise? My family and I (5 total) are flying into the Fort Lauderdale airport late at night and need to find a reasonably priced method of transportation to the Marriott at Biscayne Bay in Miami. Any ideas?
Thanks, Nanette

Hi Nanette,
Its possible there may be some kind of shuttle service at the Ft. Lauderdale airport, check into that. Of course, you may be able to find a deal on renting a car for the trip too. Are you doing a pre-cruise kind of package, if so the cruise line may be able to provide some kind of transfers? Hope this was some help, have fun.

Nanette,
They do have shuttle service at the airport to Miami. Believe it's called Super Shuttle, and if memory serves it's around $19/person. That X 5 may make it more economical to rent a car.
I know Enterprise has a location within a couple of blocks of the Biscaynne Bay Marriott where U could drop the car.
Regards,
Kuki

Avis has a location at the Pier where you can drop the car off. We are going Octber 13 and renting a SUV in Ft Lauderdale and dropping it off at the pier and it will be costing us $50. We have 5 people going too. Alot cheaper than the transfers.

We are renting a van through Thrifty at FLL and returning at the Miami Cruise Ship location - it's at the airport. They shuttle you over to the cruiseship. $39/day for a van.

I would use Fort Lauderdale VIP - we've used them several times and are reasonable and dependable.

I have used SAS Transportation for the last couple of years. $15 per person and they have always been prompt and their vehicles are clean and in good condition. I am using them again for my upcoming cruise in September.
