Port of Miami to Alamo

Need to rent a car after cruise in Miami, can someone tell me the approximate cab fare from Carnival port to the south beach Alamo at 2401 Collins Ave?

Why not try to pick up your car closer to the port.

Hertz is nearby and will probably pick you up or ask Alamo if there is a location closer to the port.

If you take a taxi to Collins Avenue as you mentioned it is $40.

Print this guide to the Port area and - YES there are car hire agents near to the Port who pick you up for free!

I have done a bunch of research on this since I have a cruise out of Miami next month.

Here is what I have:

Picking up NATIONAL rental car at FLL on Sat - returning to NATIONAL Miami SB location (MIAS01) which has an hourly shuttle to the Port - total with tax is $60 (no drop fee)

After we arrive back a week later NATIONAL shuttle will pick us up from the port and bring us back to their location MIAS01 and I will have a car which I will return to the FLL airport at 5pm that night - Total is $44 - no drop fee

These rates were 'specials' that I recieved when using the Costco website - Costco has a special rate code.

This seems to be the best deal, no drop fee, with a shuttle to the port...most other had either carzy drop fee (thrifty), crazy rates (hertz), or no shuttle (avis)....

Alamo offers free shuttle service to and from the Port of Miami. I've used it twice and will again in March (2009.) I will drop my car off at Alamo 2-3 hours before the cruise so that me and the other three in my party can catch the next shuttle to the Port. They run about every 30 minutes. It's about a 15-20 minute ride to the Port. After the cruise, I will catch the Alamo shuttle at the cruise ship dock area for the return ride to get a car for my 4 days in Miami after the cruise.

Hertz in downtown Miami also provides service to the Port of Miami. It seems that we had to take a shuttle to MIA airport to get a Hertz vehice though.
