Rental Car drop off at Port Canaveral

Are there any rental car agencies that allow you to drop your rental at the Port? If not, do any have shuttles to the Port?

I don't think you can drop off at the port itself but I think all the major rental companies do a shuttle service.

I know for a fact AVIS do (about every 15 mins, stopped right at DCLs terminal) and I can't see the others not providing the service.

I have used both Dollar and Budget. You have to drop off at their Cape Canaveral location but then they provide you shuttle service to the port. The same with your return. They have shuttle busses that will pick you up from the port upon docking and take you to their rental location. There is usually an extra drop off fee but I've found this much cheaper than taking other transportation from Orlando.

Thanks all.

I just found out that National now serves the port via Enterprise.

Pre-cruise, we dropped off at Hertz (VERY near to the port and adjacent to Residence Inn and Country Inn & Suites) and took their shuttle to the port with no problem.

Post-cruise, we rented from National (serviced by Enterprise) and lined up for their shuttle at the port. Was rather shocked when the driver opened the door and simply looked on with no effort to assist whatsoever as we and others struggled to hoist our suitcases up into the bus and onto the racks. Ride was a bit further than the other car rental offices and the office is fairly small. Not a reason not to use them if you find a good deal, just be aware.

The rental car companies near the port (all about 2-3 miles) are:

Avis, Budget, Hertz, Thrifty/Dollar, Enterprise/Alamo

Hertz the is the closest and right in the parking lot of the Marriot Residence Inn.

Next is Avis, Budget, Thrifty and the furthest is Enterprise (this one may more than 3 miles).
