Shuttle from Bush IAH airport to Galveston Cruies Terminal

What is the least expensive way to get from Busch Intercontinental Airport IAH to the Cruise Terminal in Galveston? Four of us are going on a cruise in December and the best I can find is Super Shuttle for $129 one way for the 4 of us.

There is an Enterprise car rental location on Broadway in Galveston. You could check the rate to pick up a car at IAH and drop it off in Galveston--don't know how that would compare to the Super Shuttle rate. You would also need to find out if they are open in Galveston on the day you want to do this, as well as if they can take you to the cruise terminal after you drop off the car or if you would need a cab.

Taxi service from both airports is another option. A typical fare from Hobby is $75, and from George Bush Intercontinental, about $100. There are a number of taxi companies in Galveston: Busy Bee (409-762-6666), Yellow Cab Company (409-763-3333) and Tropical Taxi (409-621-4000) are reliable companies to consider.

Thanks for suggestions. We are coming in 3 days early and renting a full sized car at IAH for $99. Checked with Enterprise and it would cost over $400 to drop off at Galveston office. I will check the cabs.

That's a huge drop off fee. What are they thinking? I wonder what it would cost if you dropped it off at Hobby and then cabbed it to Galveston? You might also google car services and see what they can offer you.

Unfortunately it is a very long way from Bush Intercontinental (far north Houston) down to Galveston (way far south of Houston) and there are not many creative options for trasportation between the two. Have you checked with the cruise line to see if they have any suggestions? I'm sure you can't be the only passengers who need a way to get from one to the other.

It looks like Super Shuttle will be out best bet. The cruise shuttle is quite a bit more than the Super Shuttle.

We are using Action Limo. They gave us a great rate for 5 and not a shared ride.
