Transportation to/from airport from Universal Resort
 
Is there a shuttle to and from the Universal Resorts? Or do you just use taxi service? Do you remember how much taxi service was when you used it? TIA

There is no free shuttle. You can use taxi which is about $100 (tip included) return or a car service which is about the same. You can also take the Mears shuttle but it will stop at other hotels along the way.

We use a Towncar service..$105 RT and it includes a grocery stop ..

We used a local service company also for $90 round trip with grocery stop. I remember taking one of those Universal surveys quite a while back and there were several questions about if Universal provided transportation like Disney. I guess they decided to not do it.

if you book a package, you can add on transportation.

this is from the website once you start the booking process:



Airport Transfers View all airport transfers

Once your flight arrives you still have to get to your hotel and back to the airport at the end of your trip. Beat the cab line and take advantage of the time and money savings of an airport transfer.

Has anyone had an experience with quick_silver Tours & Transportation? I reserved one of their town cars to take the three of us from MCO to the Royal Pacific.

I'd love to get info on this also....I guess we will only need transportation from MCO to Royal Pacific. We will rent a car for our return, as we are headed to St. Pete and then coming back to go to Disney! Thanks for the great information!

many years back, that was the company i used when i added transportation to my universal stay. it was included in the universal packages once upon a time.

that was the one time i did book a UO package, w/transportation .

i liked them.
no issues, no problems.

universal though no longer uses quick silver transportation company.

TriciaMcNS 09-06-2011 09:07 PM

Thanks Macraven. Any other opinions in DIS land?

PatMcDuck 09-07-2011 10:40 AM

I have an Alamo car rental reservation that looks cheaper than using a taxi....

Thur to Mon is $62 including tax. Too bad the $15/night for parking at HRH is about the same as the rental amount, for the 4 nights we will be there.


Hmm, not sure, drive or taxi? We leave tomorrow afternoon, so I better decide soon.
