Car rental to and from Port of Miami

Hi, Searching for the best, cheapest, closest car rental to the Port of MIA which hopefully has a shuttle pick and drop off. We will be driving a rental from Charlotte County Airport, in Punta Gorda in Dec to the Port of Mia.to embark on a cruise.

Any suggestions would greatly be appreciated. Thanks

According to the Port of Miami Web site the following companies have desks & supply shuttle services to their rental lots. Things change faster than web sites can keep up. So you should confirm availability of services from whatever companies you consider:

Dollar Rent-A-Car

Thrifty Car Rental

Hertz Corp

Alamo Rent a Car

Its important to note that you can not drop off a rental at the actual port. Miami International Airport has opened a new car rental center, reportedly there have been changes to shuttle services to the Port of Miami. Alamo as an example has discontinued shuttles to POM.

If your car rental company has you returning the car to the new center in a worst case scenario, you would taxi to the port for $24.00 flat rate if they are not offering free shuttles as before.

Options: Hertz has a car rental center close to POM as well as Alamo; they are both $10 or less by taxi to POM

It would be wise to try to speak to a car agency representative at the LOCAL MIAMI DESK to get the full scoop.

Have a safe drive!
