Default Transportation from Houston hotel to Port Galveston

I know this has been covered in the past but I'm still looking for a shuttle/limo that would pick us up at a Hobby airport area hotel and take us to the Galveston port. There will be 5 in our party. We have been quoted $350 by one company and that just seems like a lot for round trip but maybe it is not and that is the going price. Thank you.

Just google "Houston limo services" and I will bet that is a very common request. Not sure why you need a limo - why not a van, or two taxis. It would be way less, I am sure.

Usually in the taxi line at any airport you can request a van and the taxi coordinator will call one up from the lot where taxis wait.

Wow, $350?? I know I can leave my place and drive to Galveston in a half hour or hobby within a half hour... so that price feels a bit steep.

I just looked at SuperShuttle Online Reservations - LAX SFO DIA PHX BWI DFW TPA JFK JAX CDG IAD SAN DCA SMF MCI IAH LGA MSP EWR AUS SNA HOU BUR DAL OAK ONT LGB SJC ISP PTP PIE ORY MIA MCO Airport and got quoted $125 plus $5 fuel surcharge for up to 10 passengers from Hobby to the Galveston cruise terminal... not positive, but I think that's round trip!

Since you only need to transport five people, seems you could find another family on here with similar arrival/departure times and split the costs.

I found other useful-looking information here: Fly2Houston - Houston Airport System
