Car hire in Miami

Car hire in Miami

Hi. We are staying in the Miami Marriott Biscayne Bay on October 7th, then driving to Orlando on the 8th. We then return from to Miami Marriott Biscayne Bay on the 14th and go on a cruise on the 15th. Can anyone tell me if there's a car hire depot near the Marriott? I would prefer to pick-up and drop off somwhere nearby, rather than the airport, if at all possible. I have heard mixed reports about Miami airport car hire

Many thanks

There is nothing to fear renting a car at the airport. You will save time and $30 on the taxi to the Marriott by renting a car at MIA and driving to the hotel and off to Orlando the next day. There should be little to no surcharge to rent at the airport and return at the seaport. The car hire places generally have a free shuttle from the garage to the ship.

The mixed reports you've heard probably are that the car rental place is a couple miles from MIA & you have to take shuttle to it to pick up your car & drop off car at the rental place & take shuttle back to airport (MIA) when you leave... IT will cost you a bit for a cab ride from the bay to MIA but might be more convient..........
