Default Inexpensive way from Ft Lauderdale airport to Miami hotel

To save money, we're (4 of us) flying into Ft. Lauderdale a day early and have a hotel in Miami with free transportation to the terminal for the following day. Our challenge is finding an inexpensive way to get from the airport to the hotel. Looking for recommendations/suggestions.

Check out BC Express. He is taking us from the Miami Airport to a hotel in Ft. Lauderdale (4 of us) for $70. I couldn't find anything much cheaper that I felt was as reliable. You can email him at bc@bcsexpress.com

Rent a car at FLL and drop it off in Miami. As long as there is not something going on(like the boat show) you can rent a car for around 35 dollars. This way if you are there the day early you have transportation also

They have share a ride in Town Cars outside the terminals. Cost me $40 plus tip for two people to Downton Hyatt Miami. Wait was only 15 minutes.

Thumbs up Go with BCs Express - Most reliable in the area!!

Hi cruisers - BCs Express is the way to go. They are the only transportation I'll use when in the Ft. Laud / Miami area. He is very reliable and inexpensive. Give BC a try you won't be dissapointed.

BC@BCsExpress.com or 954-873-8383. I'll be using BC once again when my group cruises on the Mediterrainia 4/3.
