It is a real company as they serve over 30 airports (maybe not well).

Default Had a great experience with groome

Used them last week on Feb 5 and had a great experience. On time and friendly. Even if it is an introductory price it beats the $50 that workman charges and their equipment is considerably newer

Call you bank or credit card company and dispute the charge. They will give you back your money if the car service won’t.

Considering tolls, gas, insurance and drivers, $19 can't be making the company much profit.

There are several off-site parking lots near the orlando airport, i have used " park to fly" for several years ( over 25 times ).if traveling for a vacation, at $ 7/day, it's alot cheaper than the village van, esp. If traveling as a couple. Trip to airport is about and hour and unlike up north there is never any traffic on the turnpike.
Give it a shot.

So sorry you had a bad experience, but I am sure they didn’t start their day planning on ruining yours. They are a new company and probably have kinks to work out, and unfortunately you were one of those kinks. I hope you give them another chance....seems like many happy customers here

Like they say Dharrisoncmo, “If it sounds to good to be true it probably is”. For $19. didn’t you really think this could been a scam. Really sorry you got took for $19. but next time I hope you check this “ To Good to be True $19. place out”. Or just suck it up & pay the 40 or $50. Villages Transportation. Be Glad you only got took for $19.
