Default TAXI FEE ! WAY COST MIA

ANYONE know the cost for a taxi from Miami INTL Airport to the Port of Miami where the cruise ships are? I'm think 18 bucks for ride and 2 dollars for tip? Anyone?

If nobody is able to help you, you might want to check the Miami Airport's website........they should have a link to ground transportation that might include prices.

It's a set price from MIA to the port. Used to be $18 PER TAXI, not per person. Think it may have gone up a couple of bucks, but I can't recall, as we've picked up rental cars the last couple of trips down there.

It was $20 11/03 + tip. I would assume it is up at least $5 now and probably more with the cost of gas. When you leave the baggage claim area the prices are posted on a board by the taxi stand.

I did have a driver who thought I grew up in a cabbage patch on my 11/o3 trip. The posted price from downtown hotels to the pier was $6. He tried to charge meter. Guess what he got for a tip.

we are flying in the night before and staying at the miami days in they pick you up from the airport and drive you to the port the next day. don't have to worry about late flights if you are flying in the day of the cruise, our honeymoon was 5 hours late!!!!!!!!!

When we flew into Miami, it was $20 plus tip. It was cheaper than the charter from Carnival. Had no problems with the driver or the price. Like you said, it is posted. We also rented a car, since we flew in the day before, (always like to arrive early), we rented thru priceline with a great rate of $19.00 and then returned it to the airport and took taxi to port. Worked out great.

There is a set price that the taxis must abide by from the port to the airport in Miami, regardless of how many passengers or how long it takes: $21. The taxi will have a small sign beside the drivers picture that states this price (which includes tolls).

You can always call up a local Miami taxi company (use superpages.com or something like that) and ask them.

Call a couple to see if the rates are the same or change depending on who you ask.
