Car Rental - Port Canaveral

Hey fellow cruisers, looking for some info about renting a car after disembarkation. I know there are a lot in the area but wondering if they will pick you up at port then take you to pick up the rental or if you have to taxi it there? We aren't flying home til the next day & originally we were gonna shuttle it back to airport to pick up a rental but this seems pointless if we can get a car close to the port & drive ourselves. There seems to be a few rentals in the Cocoa Beach area but are there any closer?

Thanks for any tips!

I've had great luck with Alamo in other parts of Florida so you may want to check their website. As I've said before on this site, sign up for the Alamo Insiders Club - they don't email you to death - but have good discounts or complimentary upgrades ...

We got the best rate from Thrifty on N Atlantic Ave in Cape Canaveral, and they picked us up right at the port.

I had a good experience with Enterprise -- they advertise that they will pick you up.

I've done a fair share of trying many different car rental companies. I have to say quite a lot of them are just scams. Last I was travelling I came close to Avis Adelaide airport and saw a rental company that I have been recommended before to me by many coworkers and close friends. I have to say it went better than expected.
