Default Car rental from Fll airport to port of Miami

Does anyone know of any car rental places that you can pick up at FLL airport and drop off at cruise port? We have 6 of us and thought that might be the cheapest way . We are flying in the day before and staying at the Holiday Inn Port Of Miami. Any advice would be helpful . Thanks inadvance

last November we rented with Dollar, the price for an auto was $30 plus some cents including all taxes, no drop-off fees. At both cities they provide a complimentary shuttle to the cruiseport terminals. In your case, I think you'd need to rent a minivan. Here's a link:

I made a few calls for you, and the only car rental agency that had a pier drop off is Hertz. the address is 354 S.E. St. It is within 10 minutes of the pier and they have a shuttle. This was the closest of the calls I made, Avis, Budget & Hertz....All have drop offs of course, at the Miami airport.

Enterprise has a drop off at the Radisson on Biscayne Blvd. It is very close to the port and we had no problems.

Trip, are you sure about Avis? As far as I know Avis has a downtown location which does services cruiseship business and according to my previous experience with them, the airport location will NOT cater to cruiseship business nor do they provide a shuttle service to such, unless
Avis has changed their policy at these locations. If I am not mistaken, I think that the Avis website also makes reference to this if you look up further info on those 2 locations.

We used Dollar. Picked up at FLL airport, then dropped off at MIA with a free shuttle to the Port of Miami. Had a bit of a time finding the Dollar drop off though so allow some time for that!
