I'm going to be booking my airfare soon and wanted to know if anyone knows how far Ft. Laurderdale would be to Miami - travle time. Doing some research on airfare it seems flying into FLL is alittle cheaper. Has anyone decided on FLL instead of MIA?

I just investigated this yesterday.

From Miami Int'l:
Super Shuttle that stops at major hotels (Intercontinental included) $15
Private Taxi: $20-25 flat fee

From Ft. Lauderdale:
Private Taxi: $60-80 flat fee
No shuttle service

I can fly direct to FLL from Milwaukee. In years past I had to switch planes in Atlanta. This year I can fly to FLL non stop for $55.00 less than the Miami via Atlanta rate. According to IC Hotel reservations it is 25 miles from FLL airport to their front door. A taxi ride is up to $80.00. They claim the Shuttle runs from FLL Airport at a cost of $26.00 @ way. And..............the lines waiting to go through security can't be anything like they are at Miami.

Hmmm, I guess it depends who answers the phone at the Intercontinental reservation desk. When I called, the gal told me that there is NO shuttle running from Ft. Lauderdale to their door. Silly me believed she knew what she was talking about...

Thanks for the information guys. Iím going to hold off on the airfare alittle bit more. FLL seems to be the cheapest right now.

I booked my hotel reservation at ICH at $155/per night (that 13% tax on top of it is going to be a killer). Iím starting to look at surrounding hotels as a possible replacement. I donít really mind walking to ICH instead.
