    I've asked everyone I know this question so many times but still I think I'm getting it wrong

    Basically every time we come out of the airport, we seem to end up going a different way :/ I THINK this is because of a certain junction with tons of lanes going off everywhere just at the outside of the airport and depending which one we choose we end up going different ways.

    So far we've had ALMOST straight to i4west and perfect (wish we could find this route every time). I believe its 528 to i4 done. Question is, how we keep MISSING this :/

    We've done a road FULL of tolls, every couple of miles it felt like there was another toll.... ended up meeting the i4 a long way down (thankfully in the right direction) but didnt like all the tolls.

    We've spent 2 hours just getting lost. I THINK that one was us stupidly going e instead of w but Im not sure

    but I know we've never done the same route twice coming BACK to the airport, we're fine every time so I'm pretty convinced it's some silly junction or mistake coming out of the airport.

    Helppppppppppppppppppppppppp

    Although I have driven this route oodles of times Keith and can almost do it blinfolded by now, I too "missed" the exit onto I-4 when we went over with some friends just after we bought our villa and we were so engrossed in chatting to them after leaving the airport that we ended up coming off at an exit that was totally alien to me !!!

    All I can say to you is that as you leave the airport parking area and you join the main road, just follow the signs to the 528 Westbound. If I recall, this is the first exit, only a short distance from the airport. [Exit 1B]

    How do I know if I'm leaving via the north or south exit :/ perhaps that's where I'm going wrong?

    If you check out the directions on the link I posted Keith then all will be revealed.
    You have the option to take either the North or South exits following the overhead signs.
    The South exit takes you to the 417 and the North exit is the one that you want, to the 528.

    Thanks Tom!

    Looking at the detailed turn by turn Terry found, it looks like I'm probably going wrong before getting to the north exit... I think it's that place where I should dive across two lanes to go under the right sign. I think I'll have a better idea next time
