I'm curious about why the January program is significantly cheaper than what appears to be exactly the same program in February, March, and April. Does anybody have an answer?

I am flying from Washington D.C. into Ft. Myers on Sunday, Feb. 1, due in about 2 p.m. Anybody interested in sharing ride to Naples ??

Is this program a "GO"?

Trip on Sunday March 9,2014---want to share a van ride from Ft. Myers to Naples with my husband & me?
William Johnson Mar 04, 2014 at 09:46 PM

We land at Ft Myers at 2:45pm. My wife and I are willing to share if that works for you.
Pam Little Mar 05, 2014 at 10:35 AM

Husband & I land at 3:36pm from Denver. If you want to wait...
Pam Little Mar 06, 2014 at 11:11 PM

So William---What did you decide? Wait for us or go on your own?
William Johnson Mar 07, 2014 at 12:51 PM

Pam, We will wait for you. We can be down by the baggage claim area. We are not familiar with this airport. My wife would like to sit out in the sun if there is a spot near the exit.
Pam Little Mar 07, 2014 at 04:20 PM

If you want me to call & reserve, I need to know your luggage amount. If we have lots together we have to spend more and upgrade for the room. We just have our carry-ons so don't need much room. Need to call today or tomorrow.
Pam Little Mar 07, 2014 at 04:24 PM

If they let phone #'s through on here---call me 303.907-1611.
Pam Little Mar 07, 2014 at 04:50 PM

William, here's the latest: it costs $59 plus a tip for us to get a ride. If we have too much luggage for a car it costs more for a van---$119 plus a tip. If you think you need more room than a car trunk can provide, it looks to less expensive, at that point, for us to split up and get our own rides---no waiting around at airports then, either. Let me know what you think.
William Johnson Mar 07, 2014 at 05:23 PM

William Johnson Mar 07, 2014 at 05:27 PM

We have decided to head out on our own. Thank you, but we think we need to get on the road. We will take the taxi service that is available at the airport for $65. We may have extra luggage. See you in Naples!
Pam Little Mar 07, 2014 at 05:55 PM

Got it. See you there!
