Cortrans shuttle. Used them many times. Very reasonable prices, always on time and very professional.

We used Florida Magical Transportation back in January when we cruised out of Port Canaveral. Easy going and returning. I do not remember the price. We had 6 in our party.

Keep in mind that if you're flying in later in the afternoon, most of the shuttle services will be finished running for the day. We flew in to Orlando early evening the day before our cruise and did a one-way rental with Hertz.

Cortans is great if you are arriving the day of the cruise. If landing the day before, consider renting a car from Budget and returning it in Cape Canaveral/Cocoa Beach. It's easy and let's you run a few errands!

You can stay at an airport hotel the night before and take the hotel's shuttle back to the airport. Take Cortrans from there. Cortrans also picks up from the airport hotels, but the first shuttle leaves later than the first shuttle from the airport.

That's what we just did in April for our cruise. Just don't recommend renting from Budget on the return trip to the airport unless you are renting around noon or later.

Is there a shuttle to the port from Budget? How long is the wait for that if there is?

 

Thanks!

Yes there is. When we were there in April they were using three shuttles to day of the cruise so it was pretty fast.

 

There are also numerous other rental car companies at the port

Unless it has changed since this past Feb., Cortrans picks up from the airport hotels as well and shuttles back to the airport on debarkation. All reviews are right on. Very reliable and much cheaper than cruise lines. Google them. Also you can reserve and not pay until they pick you up.

Another vote for Cortrans from a satisfied user. $20 per person each way, MCO to port and return.

We always fly in a day or two early, rent a car one way (MCO-PC) and typically prefer to stay in Orlando (1000's of hotels in every price range) and drive to PC the morning of the cruise; drop off the car, ride the free shuttle to the port and check-in.

 

Post cruise, unless your flight leaves after about 2:00 I would not bother with a rental - just use one of the shuttles suggested above.

Has anyone used Danica Transportation or Cape Canaveral Transportation? Were you happy with their service, were they on time, did you encounter any problems or o issues. Thanks for any input, I am considering using one of these services on an upcoming cruise.

I have not seen them mentioned -have you tired the search function on this board? :confused:

 

Cocoa Beach shuttle and CorTrans are the two most often suggested shared shuttle providers between PC and MCO

Welcome to the boards! :classic_biggrin:

 

I do not recall seeing them previously mentioned on this board.  CorTrans and Cocoa Beach Shuttle are the two most often suggested, with fares from MCO to PC starting at about $20+ per person each way; since you are getting picked up at an Orlando hotel (near the airport?), that may explain some of the fare difference.

 

I would also look at using a one-way car rental.  The drive to PC is easy (bring a couple of dollars in quarters for the tolls or sign up with the rental company's electronic toll option) and all of the car rental agencies in PC/Cocoa Beach will shuttle you to the port after you drop off the car.

Your first post? Welcome! I used to live in Holland, MI

 

Please share how you found this company. I have honestly never seen their vehicle(s) and I move between Canaveral and Kissimmee a few times a week!

 

As suggested, stick with recommended companies like Cortrans etc. because you are taking risks on cruise morning and on flight day afterwards.

Ty!  Yes. I’m a tad nervous as I was on the Cortrans site and it redirected me there. They called me at 9:00 pm and when I called back she answers ‘hello’, not the name of the company. She already charged my credit card so I think I’ll have to see how it goes and pray it works out. Ty.

I do remember now - I saw a lady with a Jazzy B sign at terminal 5 a few months ago while picking up a friend. I even took a picture because I was surprised to see a new company at the terminal! But I have not seen their vehicles.

But something is clearly not right with your booking! 

 

If you got redirected to Jazzy B from the Cortrans site then I would call the credit card company immediately and dispute the charge!

 

You are dealing with a very unknown company. I just checked and could not even find a working website for them! I am in Kissimmee right now and will gladly go and check out the Jazzy B building/property if I can get an address. 

 

I would also call Cortrans and tell them what happened.

I suggest you take Joe's advice immediately. Cortrans site has never directed me elsewhere and you pay them when they pick you up.

I contacted Cortrans and he said he knows the owner and she’s reliable. Said he does t know how I got redirected to her website. I’ll let you know if she shows up. Thanks for the reply.

Yes, I talked to her (Jasmine) and she is real. You should be OK in that regard.

 

However, the circumstances with your credit card charge are mystifying...

I find the website redirection a somewhat disconcerting also. Smells a bit fishy to me. Tried Cortrans site last night and nothing like that happened.

New company called Globetrotter transit co.  Best service I have found after years of cruising out of there

Welcome to the boards.  How much did you pay for shuttle service? :classic_unsure:  Vans? Busses? Do they pick up at MCO area hotels?
