Car hire near port and getting to cruise liner?...

We are new to cruising and will be cruising next May from Port Canaveral.

There are 2 adults and one child and the first 10 days we will spend in Orlando before driving to Port Canaveral for the cruise.

Can someone please advise as to which car hire companys are nearest to port.

We want to drop our vehicle off and take the cruise and then hire another one for 2 days when we return.

Will this be a problem?How easy is it to get taxi/shuttle to terminal?

And upon our return how easy is it to get back to collect another vehicle?

I am already having nightmares about being stranded and missing the ship!!

Any advice please?

Not to worry the area is small and uncrowded. Use Hertz, Budget, Avis, Enterprise, Thrifty or Dollar. They are all close and will shuttle you to/from the ship.

Another idea is spend the night before here. It is a wonderful area with many nice oceanfront hotels.

If you are renting a car in orlando some rental places charge a drop off fee if you drop off the car at the Port Canaveral just to mention that. There are lots of places though, taxis, car rentals etc. We stayed at The Inn at Cocoa Beach. They offered transport to and from the Port. You have to make arrangements ahead of time.

Dont worry you wont be stranded. It is a very calm Port.
