I am looking at renting a Mini-Van from the pier ( if possible) at Fort Lauderdale in the morning after disembarking and then dropping it off at Miami Airport at about 5:00pm in the evening, as our flight leaves at 7:00pm. Is this feasible??
Any opinions would be appreciated.
Fort Lauderdale doesn't have any car rental desks at the pier. You'd need to catch a shuttle to their airport location (less than 10 minutes away - and really 5 minutes unless traffic is backed up). But other than that slight logistical change, your plan sounds very feasible.
