Daytona International flights for Port Canaeral cruise

Recommended Posts

I have been looking for flights to.  Today out of  curiosity I clicked surrounding airports both ways.  Looks like it is cheaper by 210  a per person.     A one way car rental from the airport is cheaper than transportation from Orlando to Port Canaveral.  Any thought or suggestions.

I’d totally do it. In fact you may find it to be much easier and efficient than flying out of MCO (Orlando). We’ve flown out of DAB (Daytona Beach) a few times and the small airport is a total breeze, similar to MLB (Melbourne) south of Port Canaveral. The drive is super easy, and you drop your rental car in a parking lot a few feet from the main terminal. No need to waste extra time going to a remote car rental facilities like in MCO (Orlando). The security checkpoint is usually dead since there are only a handful of flights departing from DAB so that’s another huge bonus. In fact, don’t be surprised if your flight is the only one departing at the time.

I agree with Tapi (and wish he still had the great dog picture in his profile 😉)

check on Allegiant flights out of CVG to SFB ( Sanford, FL )

 

limited flights and times ( maybe one a day ) - but about an hour to Canaveral Port by car ... not sure about shuttles, etc
