From Houston Airports to Galveston Hotel

Recommended Posts

If you are arriving the day before your cruise, what are your options to get to a Galveston Hotel from either Houston airport? And, then will some hotels transport you to the ship? Will be on Royal Caribbean. Thank you!

In March, we took at Lyft XL from IAH to Harbor House in Galveston for about $150.  Harbor a House has a free shuttle to the LOS.

Many hotels on the island will offer a shuttle to port, and for the ones that don't, a taxi or Lyft will not be hard to get.


Getting to the island, either use Lyft or somebody like Galveston Limo from either airport. Hobby (HOU) is closer to Galveston than Intercontinental (IAH).

I highly recommend VIP Express, LLC. We just used them and Emanuele was our driver both trips and he was friendly, helpful and on-time. He picked us up at our hotel in Houston and took us to cruise port. He also picked us up after cruise and took us to the airport. Fares are VERY reasonable (cheaper than Lyft or Uber). They can take you from airport to hotel in Galveston. If you'd like you can also arrange for them to take you to cruise port from your hotel.
