Port Canaveral Pick-Up and Drop Off Fees Included in Our Rates
It has been nearly 2 months since we were handed the following letter from the traffic control at Port Canaveral. What this means is that Port Canaveral can expect to make over $1000.00 per year from each of our vehicles entering the cruise terminal areas to pick up or drop off. They are knowingly and without hesitation making it an 2 option scenario, either you pay for the privilege of being picked up and or dropped off, or pay 3-day, $60; 4-day, $75; 5-day, $90, and 7-day, $120 to park your car there. We include this fee in our rates so you won't get any surprises after you've reserved our services. We take care of everything.
