Default Is Avis the only Rental Agent at the Port of Miami

Hi All

We have used the Avis rental agency right at the Port of
Miami as a matter of convienence due to it's relative
closeness to the ships. But their rates seem to be quite
high this time, and we were wondering if any other rental
agents existed nearby the Port of Miami? If so who, where
(how far from the Carnival ships),and do they have a shuttle
that will take us to and from the ship? Any help you can
provide would be greatly appreciated.

It is my understanding that Avis is the only one with a branch right there at Dodge Pier. The code for that drop-off is MIO, if you are booking online. This is what we are going to be doing as well.

Avis is the only one right at the pier in Miami.. but I believe several others service the piers with shuttles. I've seen the buses, but don't recall which.

Try Alamo. They have shuttle service to their facility near the airport. When we rented from Avis a few weeks ago, we had to wait in a VERY long line for one of the two clerks at the desk. It was very hot and my husband had to wait outside with the bags.
There were several shuttles at the pier.
We rented with Alamo pre-cruise and they returned us to the pier on sailing day after we dropped off the car. They seem to have a very efficient operation. I think their prices were much better than Avis. I would go with them again -- not Avis.

We have reserved a car with Avis. I hope we don't have to wait, my husband is a member. Where exactly is the rental place in comparasion to the Carnival port? Can my husband walk?
