Default Shuttle Port Everglades Cruise Piers to Airport

What's the BEST way to get from the piers to the airport? We will be going to the airport to rent a car to continue on vacation after our cruise on the Freedom in April. Carnival says thier shuttles don't start to 11:00. I want to be at the airport as soon as we can to pick up our rental car. Any help is appreciated.

Grab a taxi. The airport is just a short drive from the port of maybe 10 minutes including traffic lights. ~$15.

You might also look at this link for info about the centralized rental car center for Fort Lauderdale airport and see if your rental company participates in their free shuttle to the port.

All of the car rental companies at the airport in Ft. Laud. share a shuttle bus.

So, as long as it's the airport location you're looking for, you simply grab the free airport rental car shuttle... which runs continously.

You may have a short wait as the shuttle stops at each pier where there is a ship in port.

It was Dollar or Thrifty car rental who picked up us right at the port and took us to the rental counter.
