Default Group Transporation from FLL Airport to Port of Miami

I am the organizer of a group of 14 people going on a cruise (Carnival Valor March 9-16). We are all flying into and out of FLL. Do any of you guys have a recommendation for a transporation company to get us from FLL to Miami? We would prefer to have our own bus/van and not share with another group etc.

We have considered taxis, and we are trying to figure out which is the most economical.

The name of the company is "Go Transportation" or something like that. You can rent a van, limo, towncar or share a van. Sharing a van is $18 each. The vans that I have been in do not hold 14 people but you can either just rent 2 vans for $18 a piece or contact the company to see how much it costs to get a larger capacity van or two limos.

If you go to the Fort Lauderdale Aiport website, you will find the link to this shuttle service.

Good luck.

Carnival Cruise offers transportation to and from the FLL airport. I am flying to FLL airport and port out of Miami. The cost roundtrip is $60 something dollars.

A cab (one way) for 4 people is around $70 including tip. (4 is the max that can ride in a cab)

In three weeks we will be flying into FLL and we are taking a limo (10 passengers) for $180. When you look at it, this is really cheaper than a cab. For your group of 14, you would need 3 cabs and that's $210.

If you're interested, the website is:

jessyslimo.com

BTW- We were able to arrange for the same limo to pick us at the port when we return. They gave us a price of $160 because we essentially booked the limo for a round trip.

Hope this helps!

ncstate:
We are a group of 24 flying into FLL in May. We have a privite van picking us up at the airport on Saturday, taking us to the hotel, picking us up and taking us to the ship the next and then picking us up after we cruise and taking us back to the FLL airport. We are paying $11.00 each for each leg of the trip. That's $30 per person.

The name of the Company is Ace Tours and Transportation. Phone number 954-791-6575 or 1-877-438-2645 email..acetoursinc@aol.com

We went with www.jessyslimo.com. They have a really good prices (cheaper than some of the van operators) and have been very helpful.

Thanks again everyone, and I will let you know how my experience was upon returning (returning is very sad )

We are using Larrys Limo when we get their in April... I called and searched over 50 different services and this one seemed to be the best offered... (was not the cheapest, but was most helpful and reasonable as well as the most friendliest) $108.00 for 10 passenger limo with full stock bar for Airport transfer 1 way FLL to HolidayINN downtown Miami.
The return trip from Port to FLL is a few dollars more due to port fees .

Hope this helps

Tommy you can make reservations on their website, (inquire of airport/port transfer so they don't quote you the hourly fees)
If you're like me... i like to talk to people directly, just a bit more personal and I can get more answers than what the computer gives me (and i don't have to wait a couple days for answers ) don't call me impatient tho LMBO

Their # 1800 611 6631
http://larryslimo.com/

if you are reserving a round trip they will need a credit card to secure it.... nothing is charged until the day you arrive...

Cheers!

www.jessyslimo.com worked out so well! They were very flexible and helpful for our large group of 20 that came in at different times etc. I definatly recommend them to anyone in the future!
