    Cool Transportation to airport

    Is there any cheaper transport to the airport than a cab (staying at Weston)? I used airline miles to reserve a car during the middle of our trip (I didn't realize the only location I could pick it up and drop it off was at the airport). If I have to pay $50 in cab fees to get the free rental it kind of defeats the purpose and I would probably just rent the car closer to where we are staying.

    Thanks!

    I don't think they do, I will probably take the bus or just get one closer to the hotel. Thanks for the bus info!

    your car rental, if it is one of the places like "hertz" that has an office at the airport and at the radisson and i think hyatt.........maybe you can cut some sort of a deal and ask them if you can pick it up at a non airport location.

    sometimes using the "freebies" do not work out as being free.

    my husband tells the story of our first cat she was "free".
    cost us over $1200 in vet bills and flea treatments and having the house fumigated .

    so, free.........usually costs in the long run :-(

    De Palm tours offers roundtrip transportation to/from the airport for $21 per person and can be booked online. You obviously have to sit on the bus while stops are made.

    Airport Transfer

    I'm looking for the best place to get a transfer from the airport to the Renaissance Marina Hotel on 8/25 around 12:30PM.

    Can anyone recommend whether we should just get a taxi or book an official transfer through a company?

    Thank you!

    There is much information here

    It is pretty much a personal preference, though most will say that a taxi is the quickest.

    Think taxi would be quickest.... real quick trip and a taxi will be readily available. Enjoy the stay!

    I doubt if anyone who has gone to Aruba more than once would use a transfer company.

    Renaissance is a five minute drive.

    Absolutely agree..... After 5 hours sitting on a plane I want the quickest arrival at the hotel, check in, get to the beach, have an Aruba Ariba and get into the water!
