Taxi/Uber price form Hapmpton Inn Brickell to POM

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know the approximate cost of a Taxi and/or UberXL form Hampton Inn Brickell to the POM? Last year I think the taxi driver ripped us off by putting in the wrong zone. The cost from airport to hotel was almost as much as the hotel to port.

We paid $11.90 for an UberXL from the Miami Marriott Biscayne Bay to the Miami Port. Wanda

Go to Uberfarefinder.com. Keep in mind, fares can change due to time of day and surge pricing might be in effect, too.

we paid about the same from IC last April ..we got stuck in traffic so the meter just kept rolling on & the taxi did not have working A/C

That is a ridiculous amount of money. Yikes. Better off taking a hotel shuttle or Uber.

The shuttle was $8 pp & did not go when we wanted

 

Our choice to take a taxi it works for us

We were very pleased taking UBER XL for the very first time in January from downtown Miami hotel to the port.

Thanks for the replies! I think we will try to UberXL for the first time.

 

 

Definitely recommended. After you download the app or when you go to the Uber website, you can enter your locations and get a quite accurate estimate of the fare.

 

And, if you are a first time rider, get a promo code from an existing rider. Both of you will get $15 off your next ride. If you need a promo code, mine is below.

 

Promo code: 6y3g9

Uber xl from Hampton Brickell to POM was 24.18$ last week.

 

That seems high to me. It's $27 to POM from the airport by taxi.

That's the price with UBER XL. Uber can run as low as $5.45 (what it cost me a few months ago and I live super close to that hotel) and $13.50 for Uber LUX.

If there are just two passengers with bags, Uber X works fine and will be half the larger XL ride.

We have paid $20 from the port to the Hampton with 2 couples and lots of luggage. Hampton Inn has a shuttle, sign up for it as soon as you check in. Taxi should be same fee to the port.

I just looked this up on Saturday Morning (AKA when we will be getting on the Equinox and leaving from Hampton in) and took a screen shot for future reference:

 

uberPool- 3-5

uberX-7-9

uberXL-13-17

LUX- 15-20

LUX SUV- 29-37

 

Considering there will be 3 of us splitting the fare it even the most expensive XL ride listed should be cheaper than a hotel shuttle!

We just used an Uber XL last month from Hampton Inn to the port. It cost us $13.13 for the ride. Last year we used a yellow taxi and the cost was $26. We always felt he ripped us off. We thought he had put the wrong zone in but we now realize that he jumped on the highway and ran the meter up. When we used the Uber, he never got on the highway and the ride was less than 15 minutes. Also, it was cheaper for us to take a yellow taxi from the port to the airport. The yellow taxi had the set rate of $27 and the UberXL was $39

 

We were 4 people with 4 pieces of luggage and 4 back packs. We fit perfect in the XL but there was no extra room to spare.

We are currently staying at the Hampton Inn Brickell. We asked when we checked in about a shuttle to POM. They do have one and it is $8 per person.

Do you remember the shuttle departure times? I may just do Uber for 2 people

We took a taxi to the port from Hampton/Brickle last April and it was about $14.The hotel shuttle did leave as early as we needed.

Skip the hotel's shared shuttle. We use uber and left when we wanted with no additional stops. And saved a few dollars.;)

Thanks for the info. Anyone used lyft to get to POM, are the fares competitive to uber.

 

Lyft and Uber prices are very competitive - usually within pennies; it all depends upon who has the drivers closest to my pick-up spot for me.

BTW...if you have American Express Platinum, one of the benefits is $15 off of Uber per month if you pay using your card.

He charged you $75 to go from the Hampton Brickell to the port??? You need to report that person to uber. We have surge pricing down here but I have never seen this.

Wow, sounds like you got gouged! We took an SUV taxi from the POM to Hampton Inn Brickell on Friday for $22 with just light traffic. However you got where you needed to go at a price that was acceptable for you.

Just took the hotel's free shuttle (Cruise Critic rate) and they started at 10 AM. We were on the first van. Our SUV taxi from the port to get the car was $22.40. I was satisfied and their were 4 of us with "cruise" luggage, so it worked out well.

Since you were a new user, do you think you may have picked a premium vehicle by mistake?

Was the FREE shuttle part of the park & cruise rate?

Where did you go from Brickell that cost that? You are given an estimate when you book the ride.

Which category did you book? X, XL or higher?

Tipping is not required.

Uber is easy and a good choice in Miami.
