Default Parking at Fort Lauderdale

Has anyone tried any of the off-site parking lots in Fort Lauderdale. I found one called Continental Airport Parking (formerly Florida Auto Rent). The total for 8 days is $68.84 vs $120 at the piers. That's a savings of $51+ dollars. They advertise a free shuttle directly to the piers. They are located about 1.5 miles from the piers. It would be very easy access from I595 that goes into the piers. Please give me your advice.

The only thing that would concern me is security at these off-site parking lots. The site is probably fenced in but is there 24 hour security? I'm sure you'll hear from someone that has used this lot.

Haven't tried them but have used Park N Fly and it was great. I just wish there was a good place like that in Miami.

Default Tripadvisor forums

Master Chief, you may want to check out the threads on parking in FL and Port Everglades on Tripadvisor.com site. They are located in the forum section. Sorry, don't know how to post the links. Doesn't mention anything about the site you mentioned, but thought you might want to know what they were saying. Hope it helps.
