Need Transportation Advice - MCO to Port

We need some advice for transportation. We are a party of five, we don't want to take a shared ride, looking for reliable and cost effective company to drive us roundtrip. Do not want to rent a car. Does anyone have good experiences and can you share costs??
Thanks.

Van?

fltours.com will provide van transportation from MCO to the port and back for $260, not including tips. This is about $90 cheaper than MCL transporation and they offer the perks of more flexible times, and an optional stop at a grocery store to pick up any incidentals you may need/want. There may be cheaper options out there, but have heard good things about them.

Fl Tours, Happy Limo, Tiffany Limo....average cost round trip to/from the port is about $250 in a private vehicle with a driver. Look at the contract to see whether this includes the tip or not (it goes both ways). There are some great companies that cost less, but these are some of the "biggies."

Have not used Happy Limo for MCO to Port, but have used them for MCO to WDW--and they're fantastic! Their cars are clean, drivers are polite--they communicate prior to arrival via text message--very nice office, as well.

We use Happy Limo and have never had an issue. Look for discount coupons. Tip is not included in price.

We used Spaceport and loved them and it was less than $200 round trip. We'll be using them again.

We used Happy Limo last year as well. They were excellent and even stopped at a liquor store so we could carry-on some adult beverages for the cruise. Highly recommend. Also second the discount coupons!

We have arranged for Happy Limo to drive us this year for the first time. I am excited to not have to rent a car for two one way trips & all that that entails. I used a coupon code I found on www.themouseforless.com or www.mousesavers.com. It saved us around $20-$30 on a roundtrip transfer.

Are there other coupons that are better that I could add?
