I have a rental car set up from Dollar rental car picking it up from the Wydham in Lake Buena Vista , florida and dropping it off at Cape Canaveral. Do they have a shuttle service that will take me to the port after I drop off the car? We are also renting a car when we return to the port and I have the same question about whether the rental car company (Dollar) will have a shuttle to pick me up from the port.

First off...please take the caps lock key off. When you use all capital letters it comes across as yelling in interweb forums.

Ok...so to answer your question about the port...according to one website...

Six Agencies with Drop Off at the Port
Here are the Port Canaveral car rental companies that provide drop-off service and shuttle to the cruise ship: Avis, Budget, Dollar, Enterprise, Hertz and Thrifty.


These car rental companies at the airport have locations at the port, which allows most of them to offer free drop off service. They also provide free shuttle service to the cruise ships and will pick you up after the cruise and bring you back to pick up your rental car again for the remainder of your trip. (And you don't pay for the rental while you're on your cruise.)


So, yeah...I'd think it'd be a free shuttle to the car rental agency.

Add to that list Alamo-(321)866-0324
and National -(321)866-0324
As to the pick up-drop off, I have no idea. But the phone numbers are here, so you could call.

Are you saying that Alamo/National now have shuttle service from the rental office to the ship??? They haven't in the past, which has prevented me from renting from them. Just curious.

Actually the office at Port Canaveral is an Enterprise office which is now owned by Alamo.

As I said, I was not sure of the shuttle service, that is why I listed the phone numbers. That way you can call and find out. :)
