Default Miami airport to Ft. Lauderdale cruise term. transportation

Hi, looking for a reliable transportation firm to do a pick up from Miami International Airport on Oct. 3 and take four adults to the Ft. Lauderdale Cruise Terminal. (Enchantment of the Seas) The return is October 8th back to Miami.
Has anyone used a reliable inexpensive Transportation Company that the'd recommend. (other than buying the Transportation with RCCL)
Thanks..
Don

When you walk out of the airport you will be able to get a van-cab that will accommodate you all. It's usually priced as a whole rather than per person. Even so, if it's per person the last time we were there (less than a year ago) it was $15-20 per person which isn't too bad.

There are limo services as well but we find this works best for us.

I know there are vans and taxies and even limos to take you to Ft. Lauderdale. It would be helpful if one NAME or Company stuck out that you or anyone else used RECEENTLY for their services. I received a reply from another source saying a Company charged $60.00 per person round trip. (that's expensive) One other place has a restricted time leaving Ft. Lauderdale back to Miami at 12:30 pm. By then my flight will have left Miami.

On October 3rd, I will be doing the same thing only in reverse. Most of the companys I have called charge around around $64.00

These names have been in the biz a while, so they are reputable..try

I think about $60 is the going rate. If you can get a cab for $20 which I doubt, you're doing good because even in a car it's a short trip, but it's not cab $20 short, if you know what I'm trying to say.

The ride between the 2 cities is 45-60 minutes thereabouts, depending on traffic, and, if a cabby told me he could get us there for 20.00.. something is not right, with that picture.

The cheapest transfer I have seen is with the Ramada Cruiseport Hotel in Lauderdale, we are pre cruising there..to get to Miami, they charge 15.00 pp...to get back to Lauderale airport it's 20.00 pp.

If you are by chance precruising..see if the Miami Ramada offers this as well.
