Default Parking fee at Port Everglades?

Anyone know the current cost of parking at Port Everglades Parking garage? I think it use to be 12 dollars a day but may have gone up or may be going up the 1st of Jan. Any up to date pricing info would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Parking at Port Everglades

Convenient parking for cruise passengers is available in the Northport and Midport Parking Garages. All Port public garages are:

Well-illuminated
Security-patrolled
Provide handicapped parking with unimpeded access to crosswalks and elevators
Parking Fees

$3 for 0-1 hour
$6 for up to 5 hours, and then $1 per hour thereafter up to daily maximum
$15 daily maximum
$19 daily maximum for oversized vehicles (those that exceed the standard width and/or height of a parking space). Vehicles in excess of 20 feet in length cannot be accommodated.
Northport Parking Garage
The 2500-space Northport garage (soon expanding to 4,250 spaces) services:

Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center
Northport cruise terminals including Cruise Terminals #1, 2 & 4.
Entrance: Turn south on Eisenhower Blvd. from 17th Street Causeway, or come east on State Road 84, entering the Port and turning left at Eisenhower Blvd.

From I-595, go east straight into the Port. Follow signs for Terminals #1, 2 & 4 and/or the Convention Center.

Midport Parking Garage
The 2000-space Midport garage services:

Cruise Midport Terminals #18, 19, 21, 22/24, 25, 26, 27 and 29.
Entrance: Take I-595 east straight into the Port. Continue heading east to the garage on the left side of the street.


Remote Parking

Privately owned and operated remote surface parking lots, located near Port Everglades, provide shuttle bus service to the cruise terminals.

Park 'N Fly

Park 'N Go
Handicapped Parking
In 1996 the Broward County Board of Commissioners, acting under authority of Florida Statute 316.1959, elected to charge disabled patrons of the Port Everglades parking facilities the same fees as are applied to all other patrons; and that pursuant to Section 3 of Statute 316.1964, "When a state, county, or municipal parking facility or lot is being used in connection with an event at a convention center, cruise-port terminal, sports stadium, coliseum, or auditorium, the parking facility may charge a person whose vehicle displays such a permit a parking fee in the same manner and amount as it charges other persons."

However, pursuant to Section 8 of the latter statute, any vehicle with specialized equipment such as ramps, lifts, or foot or hand controls, for use by the person who has a disability, or any vehicle that is displaying the Florida Turnpike Toll Exemption sticker, is exempt from any parking fees in Port Everglades.

Here is how to request free parking at Port Everglades:

At the entry of the Port Everglades parking garage, pull a parking ticket from the automated machine and get the attention of one of the parking agents in an adjacent exit booth. Advise that parking agent that you would like a disability waiver of parking. The parking agent will telephone for a parking supervisor who will come to the booth and examine your vehicle to determine if the driver/vehicle meets the criteria for a parking waiver. The parking supervisor will inspect the vehicle to determine if a Florida Turnpike Toll Exemption sticker is affixed to it and/or if the vehicle has specialized equipment and a hanging tag from the Division of Motor Vehicles verifying the equipment.

When the parking supervisor verifies that a disability waiver of parking is allowable, the driver's name and address and the registration number on the sticker or hanging tag will be recorded on the parking ticket by that parking supervisor and the parking supervisor will sign the ticket. At this point the driver will be given the parking ticket and directed to enter the garage.

Upon exit, the parking ticket with the recorded information and the parking supervisor’s signature will be surrendered to the exit parking attendant and no parking fees will be charged.

Visit http://www.dot.state.fl.us/ctd/tollp...mitprogram.htm for information about the Florida Disabled Toll Permit Program and to obtain Florida Turnpike Toll Exemption sticker.

Default parking at port everglades

We parked at Port Everglades last March and it was $12 per day but I see from Broward County's website that it has now gone up to $15. A few years back it was $10. So along with the fuel surcharge, the cost of cruising is escalating. We are sailing on the Constellation on Feb.8 and we're driving from Toronto, so have booked a hotel 5 min. from the port and we can leave our car there for $6 pernight and they supply a free. shuttle service. That's a saving of $90 for a 10 day cruise which just about covers the hotel.

My goodness, that is a long drive We are driving fron Virginia to Ft Lauderdale and its 929 miles...14 plus hours...I-95 South. Normally we fly but are just tired of airline delays, lost baggage, plus prices seem to have gone up a lot over the last couple years. So, we decided to drive this time.

I have often wondered if leaving your car in a hotel parking lot for , in our case, 11 days is a good idea. We have never done it. Not sure I would want the hotel staff to know my car was there and would not be missed for 11 days. Has anyone else left their car in a hotel parking lot during their cruise? Any problems? It would be a very sad ending to a cruise to return and find your car missing or vandalized.

Please understand, I am not being critical of cruisers who do this. Like I said, we have never done it but have thought about doing it. Good idea or bad idea

We used them last year and it was great. They pick you up right at your car and deliver you righ back to your car when you return. If you are a member of AAA the cost is $9 a day.

Rick-we used to own a condo in Fl-have driven back and forth since '91. No problem-2200 km (oops-1400 miles) about 22 hours. Being retired, we can take our time-we stop for 2 nights on the road. Car knows its own way by now! Plus, we have a week before the cruise and 10 days after before we head home.
As for leaving the car at the hotel while we cruise, my husband is a little hesitant. We plan on checking out the facility and seeing if the hotel is liable. We may end up parking at the cruise terminal-who knows? But $15 a day? Just think how much I could win in the casino with that money LOL

Default do your homework

For better parking rates, just go to the web and search under Cruise port parking. You'll find places to park at half the price.

Default Parking at a motel

We parked our 2005 custom Cad. Deville at the Comfort Inn airport/port for our ten day cruise on the Connie; parked close to the front desk, and took our garage door opener out (as we live in FL). It was ok. Previovsly we have left our car at the Best western Co Co Beach on a RCI cruise (1 week) ok also.

Default parking charges

$6.oo a day paid up front, and they provided free shuttle to and from the port; you just have to sign up for the shuttle service for you and your bags. I got the room for about $60.00, it was'nt great but provided a break from a hectic drive on the interstate and starting our cruise. they had an ok cont. breakfast to hold us over to the ships lunch buffet. We could'nt use the return shuttle, as we had to pick up our dog in Tampa, then I had a Dr's. appt. in Orlando in the late afternoon, so we got a taxi for aprox. $25. incld. tip back to the motel, as we had no choice.
