Houston to Galveston?

If you are cruising out of Galveston, the nearest airports are Houston Intercontinental and Hobby. Hobby is closer, but many airlines do not fly into this airport, as it is small. The trip from Houston Intercontinentaal (IAH) takes about 45 minutes once you leave the airport grounds. Traffic can be heavy on the expressway headed south, depending what time of day you are traveling.



Your options are the cruise transfer service (arranged in advance), local limo service (Galveston Limo- it's really a bus, depending on how many are arriving-cheaper if paid in advance for round-trip), taxis (probably expensive?), and a one-way auto rental. I think that Enterprise has a drop off on Galveston Island, but check around for rates, one-way drop off fees, etc.
