Default Transportation in New Orleans?

Because of the distance from the airport in New Orleans to the French Quarter, is it necessary to have transportation scheduled in advance? Going on the Conquest in October and flying in a day ahead of time. There will be 3 of us. Any idea of the cost of a taxi or limo or blue shuttle?

For the 2 of us, we are using the Airport shuttle from MSY. it cost us $50 for RT (total for both) they will take us to our hotel from the airport (Maison St. Charles) and then from the Pier back to the airport. We don't have to worry about getting from hotel to pier because Maison St. charles provides trans to pier. After pricing everything else out, this seemed to be a better deal. It works out to be about $25 p/p RT

We took the Airport Shuttle to our hotel at $45 total. Went to the little kiosk near baggage claim at the MSY airport. When returning, we took a taxi from the pier to the airport at $60 total. Taxis were lined up everywhere at the pier terminal. No need for advance reservations. It's all very easy.

There are lots of cabs and the prices are regulated so you should be fine without booking transportation in advance. Debbie

I took the airport shuttle, it was $20 round trip. Booked it at the airport when I arrived, it's is right by baggage claim.
