Default FREE shuttle from car rental company to the pier in Miami

Does anyone know which car rental company (besides Hertz and Enterprise) offers FREE shuttle to the cruise terminal?

All the majors will shuttle you, but it's from their airport location.

Hi Kuki,

Do they shuttle you to the pier right after you return the vehicle or only at a specific time?

I literally spent my entire morning on Car Rental in Miami.

Here's what I found out.

It is MUCH MORE EXPENSIVE to rent a car in Miami then anywhere else!

Enterprise (I called several of their locations in Miami) said that they no longer do any pickup at the Port of Miami nor do they offer shuttle service there.

Hertz: Expensive as all get out. Like $70 a Day Economy -- but they do offer a shuttle that comes by every 15minutes and will shuttle you less then 2miles away to their downtown location

Budget: Will pick you up via shuttle and transport you to airport location.

Dollar--Best Deal I could find. Offers free shuttle service pick up at the Port of Miami and transport to Miami Airport. Got a better deal calling them directly then I did off of the internet. Need to call upon arrival at the Pier and they will send shuttle.

Thinking about moving to Miami and starting my own business in shuttling passengers to Rental Car Locations and Airports.
Guess I shouldn't be too surprised from a place that has to sit and study what kind of 'chad' it is!!! Good Grief!

Try hertz.com they have internet specials
and if you have a points card from AA, priority points(holiday inn) or other hotel or airline cards see if they have a discount code for Hertz

Default Alamo has a free shuttle

Alamo Rent a car will pick you up at the port. They take to their airport location to rent a car.

I suggest anyone wanting a transfer from car rental companies at the Miami airport to the Port of Miami, double check again with their car rental agency. Avis and Budget no longer offer the transfer. I could not get a definitive answer from Hertz.
