Have you talked to the hotel to see if they have a shuttle service.  Alot of hotels have a shuttle for airport use and they may be willing let you use it free or inexpensively for any guests staying at the hotel.

We are having the wedding/reception at the resort we are all staying in. But still need transportation from the larger airport most are flying into (Orlando – wedding in Daytona – about an hour 20 minutes away). We wanted to help make it affordable for our guests, we do live here in Daytona.

We looked and looked and ended up renting a 15 passenger van – we’ll need it all weekend long and luckily have the arrival of flights at a few different times, all on the same day though. We are having a co-worker drive the van for us – we have asked all of our guests just to tip him, whatever he doesn’t make in tips, we will make up the difference for his time. The cost for the van, for four days is only 463.00 – that was the cheapest way for us.

We will also have the van shuttle guests to our house for our wedding eve party/dinner – the resort is about 2 miles from our house………..we will definitely get some use out of this rental van – oh, also using to take us (girls, then boys) out for wedding day photos, before the wedding. Good Luck!!

@redhead46: We are lucky enough to have an acquaintance, who doesn’t drink and would love to earn the extra money – he wouldn’t have been invited to the wedding – he works with one of my Fiance’s supply companies – worked out well for us……..before deciding on him, we too didn’t want any of our guest’s to have that responsibility – it is a hard choice.

I think you’ve got enough time to plan this out 🙂

First of all, where in CA are you? That might help answer your question a little bit. For instance, in SF you can call this really cool cab company (don’t know the name, just have a phone #) and they text your cell when they’re outside your location, and you are riding in style. They’re polite, even funny, and you’re riding in a NICE car. And it’s like $5 more than a regular cab ride.

So something like this might be an option? But again, it depends on where you are geographically!

@redhead46: this may be a little weird (it’s late, I’m sleep deprived haha) but what about contacting two different companies? One for drop off in the beginning of the day, one for pickup at the end of the night? They don’t need to know about each other, and then they can’t give you a hard time about the “in-between” time!

Disregard if it sounds too hard/complicated haha!
