Transfer from Sanford to I-Drive

Hi everyone,

We travel to Orlando in September 13 and are flying into Sanford. We dont have car hire booked as i dont drive and the Mrs doesnt like the idea of driving in a foreign country.

Just wanted to know if anyone has ever used public transport or booked private transfers to/from i-drive from Sanford airport?

Any ideas on how to go about it or approx costs?

Back in 2006 (so AGES ago) our booking included transfers. Have a look at your hotel booking and travel agent and see if you can get it added on (or in fact you may already have it). Normally they just give you a coach (as there will be loads of other people besides yourselves) and, with us, stick on a movie to keep the kids happy. Can't comment on costs unfortunately.

Public transport isn't really a practical option*, so you can pretty much forget about that. Otherwise, car hire, shuttle or taxi services are what's left.

(* the cheapest option involves a 2 mile or so cab ride followed by three bus journeys and a total elapsed time in excess of three hours; if you want details, ask back).

My son travelled from Sanford to I Drive by using one of the local, I think it may have been Mears. Efficient service.
