For most big suppliers the minimum age to rent a car is 21 years old and with some suppliers car rental under 21 is possible as well. You should keep in mind that a ‘Young drivers fee’ is being applied by most suppliers if you are under 25 years old. The fee is already included in the price you see on Holiday Cars.
Furthermore, young drivers are not allowed to rent all types of cars. For instance, vans, luxury cars and full-size SUV’s.

Get advice on exiting the airport. Have change for toll on journey at least 5 dollars coinage. Get the sales guy to take you to the exact car, otherwise you have to guess which one he meant, after a long haul flight not great. Good well organised returning the hired car. A lot less stressful.

Confirm your rental reservation ahead. Allow enough time between your flight arrival and your reservation time for the shuttle to bring you to the rental facility. Arrive at the airport early and notify the rental company if there are any changes to your flight. When returning, arrive early in case there is a line and make sure they are aware of when you'll be returning. Follow these steps and you'll have a quick and painless experience just as I did.

Traveling light is essential if you are hoping to move around quickly and efficiently. We traveled with a group of 8 and were able to get a lot done with less luggage. Eat locally, no matter where you travel some of the best parts of a an areas culture come from their cuisine. Expanding your pallet while you move around is key to an enjoyable trip. Have a plan but don’t overly scheduled. Having free time or time to explore with no destination is sometimes where you can find the hidden gems or best experiences. Don’t forget to live in the moment, it’s easy to start to count how many days you have left on vacation, in order to appreciate where you are it’s better to be in the moment.

The rental counters are one level down, make sure you get on the right escalator. One will take you to the car rental location, the one right next to it goes down another level! Also, the gas stations closer to the airport gouge pricing. Fill up a little further away!

The flow through the ticketing and security was smooth. There is a train that takes you to your gait, so make sure you have the gait number before you leave the main area. Upon arrival at Orlando with Frontier airlines it took about 45 minutes for my checked bag to arrive. The off-site shuttle took another 15-25 minutes. I'd make sure to plan enough time after arrival for getting to your final destination. The airport was open, clean and well lit. The palm trees inside are a nice touch.

Orlando Airport was great. Even though it's an international airport it felt like a smaller airport so easy to navigate overall. Lots go food options and clean. Car Rental desk was close to baggage claim. And the Car rental garage was close right across the street (no busses needed) as well so makes it convenient and timely to get your vehicle. Overall a great airport, close to Disney & Universal Theme Parks and easy to navigate.

Travel tips — Go for a brand that you know and trust. If it’s cheap, be careful of underlying fees that are in the fine print. Also, consider the location and convenience of your reservation. Is it located in the terminal? After flying all day will I have the energy to stand in another line and get shuttled miles away to the airport? Or should I just spend the extra $10 dollars and get my car from the airport. In addition to that, take advantage of reward programs. It doesn’t cost you anything but your business (which you are already giving them.) Lastly, remember you are most likely in an unfamiliar place and don’t be afraid to ask an airport employee for help. That is what they are there for! Do your research before arrival and allow it to pay off when you drive away stress-free. Enjoy the adventure!

There is Terminal A and B check which side you are waiting for your shuttle. The public bus is very lacking in Orlando. If you planning to rent a car from Orlando, I recommend to get it from the major car rental instead cheapo car rental place where you have to take a shuttle cause I had a bad experience. The airport is like an octopus where all gates train you back to the middle where is are shopping and lots of food. The staff at the airport aren't super friendly maybe they don't see local people, most people are are in Orlando for vacation. There is no uber pickup from Orlando airport.

Orlando airport is pretty good. It's modern and clean with good facilities. It's not too big but big enough. However, one should be prepared for some long(ish) waits going through security. Also a train ride to your terminal adds time to your journey on both ends. In other words, arrive to the airport a bit earlier than you might normally do for departures. And expect to take extra time getting out of the airport upon arrival. MCO also has a strange "up-and-down" system. You have to go up a floor to go back down a floor in places and the baggage claim is also oddly placed and difficult to find if you don't know what you are doing there.

Do not underestimate the time to go through security during high travel times. At slow times I have gotten from the counter to check bags to the gate in half an hour. At high traffic times, it has taken me over an hour and a half to do the same. The directions to get to curbside pickup, taxis, rental cars, and parking after picking up bags can be confusing. But signs for the Disney Express are great! When you are in the airport, the main eating places are in the center terminal area, not out in the terminal lines. The only food out by the gates are one main restaurant and a few small bagel places.

Allow plenty of time to get through check in with Disney traffic. We were held up returning due to accidents leading into the airport so be wary of Floridian drivers.

Did not have a chance to visit shops but all looked Disney-oriented and expensive. Car drop off is easy and efficient.

Read clearly indications for directions to the rental agreement area. Don't hesitate to ask for directions as there are many helpful people. If you have several bags, don't hesitate to get a cart. Use the cart to transport you bags all the way to car pickup, which is quite close once you have the rental taken care of. Realize that agents may be able to take care of rentals for more than one company. This can save some time. Seriously consider adding the toll option to your agreement as there are freeway tolls close around the airport, and this can save time.

You should prepay as many things as you can. Use a credit card -just in case you have to get a refund, they have more power than you alone. Pay the extra to have your bag check...or at the very least allow it to be "check free" at the gate. Carry an outfit on your small carry one with your purse. Carry cash especially small bills for those moments you might need a quick tip. Take a picture of your boarding pass(es); just in case your data won't connect. Read the SMALL print...it is there for a reason. Lastly, if at all possible fly-in a day before you have to be - leas stress when you are delayed.

The security queues at Orlando airport like every other US airport can be long, make sure you leave enough time to get through. We travelled first class and queues were still very long. There is also the monorail service connecting the departure gates to the main terminal, it's only a short journey but be sure to leave enough time. When returning a rental car be careful to ensure you go the correct zone, it is extremely difficult to navigate around the car rental garage if you enter the wrong zone, be especially vigilant if your zone is on the upper levels as these are easy to miss if you are following behind other cars entering the garage. There are plenty of people on hand to help you around the airport to make sure you are in the right place. The roads going in and out of the airport are very well sign posted and even without Sat Nav you can be on your way easily.

Use Orlando tourist toll pass. They are cheaper than rental car ones and also easily available. You can buy them only for the car rental duration or other duration that you need the toll pass. They can be bought at the airport near the rental car counters. You just need your credit card details. Keep it handy. Remember to deny the rental car toll pass. Close the tag in the car.

Go with a reputable car rental company, most likely one that is located inside the airport. If you are going to Disney and only a few other places to stop, I would use the Disney Express and just Uber or Lift your way to those other places. The Disney express people on my way back to the Airport were amazing and extremely helpful. They will go above and beyond to help you. I went with Delta and they were also very helpful and accommodating. I had three kids, myself and my wife, with two bags a piece. We also had a car seat and stroller. I was able to get through with relative ease. If staying at Disney resorts, the Caribbean is now a prime location due to the new Gondolas to two of the parks.

He is an excellent customer-oriented example.

Don't over pack. Select clothes items that you can mix and match to maximize your wardrobe. Eat before you leave, so you're not tempted to pay the high prices at the airport.

If you are traveling off-peak hours, you don't need to be 2 hours early for your flight. The TSA team is well organized, and the security checkpoints flow quickly. The entire airport system is designed to move you from one place to another with ease. Pay attention to signs and broadcasts; situations change quickly. If you are renting a car, do plan in advance. The more preparation you make, the easier the process will be, and you will be on your way with little difficulty. Overall, a good experience.

There is reasonably priced gas by the airport, if you are willing to fill up by yourself and decline the prepaid fill-up service. Tolls are mostly less than $2 each, so the rental toll tag might not be worth it. Disney Springs and Universal City Walk is popular amongst tourists for evening fun, but check out Old Town in Kissimmee where a lot of locals go. The flea markets are mostly the same, so once you visit one, you do not need to visit the others. Kissimmee has an abundance of places to eat, especially fast food chains. Stay away from the cheap Disney ticket stands.

If you rent from Fox or anyone else North of the airport, watch out for a gas station N of Lee Vista Blvd on Semoran Blvd that overcharges. Local prices when I was there were about $2,31 9/10, but this station was charging $6.95 9/10! There is a 7-Eleven station right after Fox on the corner of Hoffman Ave that charged the going rate. Be careful and don't get gouged. Also allow time for traffic in the airport. When I got in around 5 PM things were quiet but around 7 PM traffic was very heavy and lanes to all areas (arrivals. departures, rental car returns and even airport exits) were backed up with stop and go traffic. Depending on your destination(s) in the area, it would be wise to check out what tolls you may encounter. Different roads have different toll systems and some have unmanned toll plazas that only accept their particular electronic toll systems. And the result of improper or non payment can be fines levied after the fact. Some preplanning can save problems later on.

Fox Rental Cars, Orlando off-airport location. Run for your life if you can. 1. Off airport location and long wait time to get their van service. 2. Extremely slow moving wait lines at the counters. I had to stand in line and wait 45 minutes to process my reservation and get me the car. 3. They try to sell you their insurance even if you have taken the Premium insurance from "holydaycars.com". They keep arguing with you and intimidate you into buying their insurance and extras. 4. I had reserved an SUV and they gave me a small regular car. When I actually saw the car, I went back and complained. Then they changed the car and gave me an SUV. I think that this switching of the car was done intentionally. 5. Never ever rent from this Fox rental car again. Pay a few dollars more if you want a peaceful and happy experience.

If yoh you want to spend less and see the city I highly recommend Lake Eola area and downtown Winter Park. You can walk around both and can ever see both in the same day if you like.

4* is just because I felt a bit confused by what was really needed by the extra charges on the insurance etc when we first arrived at the airport desk to pick up our car. I stuck to the basic cover as I'd read everything before we left, and knew it was adequate, but some people may have felt pressured to pay for extra insurance. I feel this company gave a good deal especially considering pick up is on site and just opposite the airport exit doors via a super short walkway. We loved our compact car (Kia Soul) and would 100% use this company again

Allow a little extra time since you have to take a tram between the terminal and where the planes load.

The food, as you might expect, are pricey, the food is very good and not hugely over priced.

Always read the fine print, what do they allow/not allow, require you to bring/can't bring, etc. Make sure you have a 'credit card' with you, not just debit cards. Make a plan for your trip, and make sure your plan is in agreement with everyone involved. I'd recommend Alamo for car rentals! But if you go elsewhere confirm everything, and know your options....many places give no refunds and are strict on cancellations or changes. We all have things come up that require changes, those that offer no refunds and complicated cancellations should be avoided. Go with an open mind! Be willing to accept unexpected changes and unwanted problems. They will happen, and the better you can deal with it the more fun your vacation will be.

It all worked out fine but had we been a few minutes later I am not sure we would have been able to make it on. I do like getting rental cars from places that have a onsite presence. if you go offsite, be prepared for 40-60mins of waiting. The airport is easy enough to drive in and out of that you don't wave that much by picking an offsite place. Foods was good and had some good options.

We rented a Nissan Rogue for two weeks in late January, early February of this year from Value in Orlando. We had originally booked a Toyota Yaris, but Value substituted a Rogue instead, at the same rate. I initially thought it would be a gas hog, but was pleasantly surprised at its good mileage. It certainly held the road well, and could keep up with the traffic ( 75 mph + ) and was relatively quiet. We drove from Orlando to the west coast of Florida and down the coast until it got warm ( south of Sarasota) It held our luggage and the level deck at the back hatch made getting it in and out a lot easier than with a compact car. Parking was easy, with the aid of the back-up camera. This was the first time I had ever used one, and it didn't take that long to adapt from rear view mirrors to a back up screen. The other thing that I found worked well in freeway traffic was the "blind spot" sensor. It alerted me a number of times when we needed to change lanes. Overall, I was very pleased with Rogue, and with the folks at the Holiday Inn where we picked it up. I would certainly recommend Value to anyone travelling in central Florida .

My insurance company covers me for rental cars, so I never take the added insurance. Always opt to bring the car back full since and do so. That is easy and much cheaper than paying the rental company a discounted rate for an entire tank when the tank is far from empty. Pay for the rental in advance to get a lower rate. Be sure to check the car over completely and document any and all blemishes. Any panel that already has a documented blemish is immune to additional blemishes that show up while you have the car. Be sure to inspect the wheels for blemishes as well. And don't forget to inspect the tires too.

Buy the toll pass at the rental desk. It will be worth the expense, saves on fines. If you are unsure, purchase the additional insurance available. Feel safe fully protected. Return the car as you received it. Saves time. Purchase the full tank option. Saves unnecessary gas station searching for the final fill up.

Plan to arrive at least 2 hours before your flight. Security lines are long and slow. Only 2 people checking ID's and were not friendly at all. The people sending us through the scanners were also rude. We've always been told to take ALL electronics out of our bags along with any liquids (shampoos, etc.). At this airport, they sternly told us to make sure to put everything in our carry-ons and put it on the belt to go through the scanner. I know they are super cautious, but a little courtesy goes a long way.

Download an app showing wait times for the rides to help decide which one to go for during the day. Save your receipt for parking when a hopper pass, you only have to pay parking once.

Allow yourself time! Lines can be long or go quickly. Allow extra time for traffic and accidents in the Orlando area. Fly with Southwest if you can. They are VERY organized, make flying easy and not torture like a lot of airlines (AND they have more legroom!). They also don't charge you for every little thing. Search for an offsite car rental company and don't be afraid of using smaller companies like I found through HolidayCars.com. I have found them (Value Car Rental) to be terrific and a great value. WAZE app on your phone for directions is a MUST. There was a big accident on the freeway and it got me around it and saved me a ton of time and the possibility of missing my flight.

Look for the positive things in vacation and comment on it to management. Everyone can complain. But comment on the good. Make someone’s day brighter. All in all you got a good deal on your flight. A good deal on the car. A good deal on a place to stay. Your in Florida. Life is good. And say hello to Mickey if you go to Disney world. Most importantly you need to enjoy yourself.

There are great restaurants in the area and I recommend searching out a Cuban restaurant. Ocean is not too far away. Try Cocoa Beach for a day trip. Hyatt regency has many pools and a very nice outdoor area to lounge, with the hot weather it is a great place to spend a day. Search out a Jai Alai match, the fastest sport in the world.

Have 5-dollar bill ready to cover luggage cart. Don't expect big luggage items (such as golf-bags) to come through at over-sized carousel, they may come through normal carousel even if you are told they'll be coming through over-sized area. Send the person from your party who is to be the driver on your rental car to the rental car office immediately, and get other members of your party to retrieve his/her luggage. Don't rent a SatNav / GPS - make do on arrival, go to nearest Best Buy and purchase one; it'll cost the same as renting, but you can use it again and again. Shop around for car rental, you may get a far superior vehicle from one car rental company for no more than the rental on a much smaller car from another company.

Do not accelerate rapidly when you are next to a police cruiser. They frown on that. If you do it in an under powered rental car, you're not going to be able to outrun them. If you do get pulled over, don't brag about how your state's team whupped their team. Doing that definitely will get you a ticket and possibly a free night's stay at county.

Allow yourself atleast an hour and 1/2 from when your flight lands, to when you leave the airport. The car rental alone takes up quite a bit of time.

Best tip is to use a GPS to AVOID tolls!! They are everywhere and you will get stuck if you don't have a pass or exact change. One to do is not only going to the Disney World parks but also Disney Springs. Also, check out Universal's citywalk! It's perfect for a night out! Lastly, if you're visiting an amusement park for a long time, write down your parking location! It'll save you time or else you'll walk around aimlessly looking for your car.

When in Orlando, you have to hit up Disney World. Truly a magical place even if you have really little children. I have four kids under the age of 7 and we have been to Disney twice. We actually just spend one day at the magic kingdom and then head to the coast for some beach time! Another place we have attended while in Orlando was Sea World. My kids loved it. There is something for everyone there from sea animals to roller coasters.

If going to the parks and not staying at the resorts, stay at a hotel closest to the parks where you'll be visiting the most. I4 in Orlando has construction going on and traffic can get bad going either direction, it's the main highway that takes you from Disney to Universal, and unless you love sitting in traffic, you'll want to minimize the amount of time you spend on it.

Be ready for turnpike fees as soon as you leave the airport. It would be wise to have change or cash ready to go. If you have a SunPass for the area..bring it along! I am not sure if an EZ Pass is the same thing. I was just heading to The Villages and it was around $6-$8 in fees. I would not recommend that you get a SunPass from the car rental company. If you are heading to The Villages, enjoy the daily activities in the Squares. They have free musical performances every night in each square as well.

Orlando home of the best theme parks in the world. My no1 tip for Disney is to book your tickets in advance with fast pass and make sure to book the main rides attractions for as early in morning as possible as these fill up quickly and long wait times otherwise. If possible don't do Disney during the holidays it is way too packed and very uncomfortable getting around all the people and finding a place to have lunch. Don't miss out on Clearwater Beach, it is worth the 2hr drive. Universal and Islands of Adventure a must for the thrill seeker and Harry Potter fan. Take time out to enjoy the weather :-)

Take a USA satnav with you or hire one with your car. It is SO easy to get lost out there with their awful or non-existent road signs. Allow 2 days each (1 early & 1 late) for both the Magic Kingdom & Epcot. All the other parks are pretty much 1 day each. Allow for some down time every 4-5 days, especially if you have young children - there is SO much walking to do - and make sure you have very comfortable and supportive shoes to wear. If you're going to IOA & US and want to do all the rides then stay 1 night in one of their premium hotels. The cost of the room for 2 or more people is less than the cost of the free unlimited Express passes you will receive for the 2 days. You also get 1 hour early entry into both parks (need to check in about 7.30am to take advantage on the 1st day) so you can do the Harry Potter areas (where there are no EPass lines) before they get too crowded. You will need the extra time and the EPasses to fit it all in. p.s. watch out for the extra taxes on your room - 12.5% - and they charge $22 + tax for 1 nights parking. Avoid USA holiday weeks ... the parks are rammed. Unless you're very unlucky with a late hurricane like they were this year the best time to go is end Sep early Oct. The weather is perfect and you get the Halloween events and Epcot's Food & Wine Festival. If you have to go within school holidays wait until the last 2 weeks of August as the USA holidays will have finished by then. However, expect to get very hot and probably very wet!

If you are looking for a special place to have a great dinner, try O'hana in Disney's Polynesian Resort. The food is outstanding and plentiful, served family style. It is a five course meal with a great entertainer for the youngsters and the young at heart and a view of the fireworks if you have a late reservation that will take you till 10:00 in the summer. Be sure to make your reservations early through Disney Dining and show up at the resort with your confirmation number a couple of hours early to hop the monorail and visit the Grand Floridian and Contemporary resorts then finish off with a tour around the Polynesian before dinner. Great evening out. Dinner runs roughly $40-50 per person, but is worth every penny, you won't go away hungry!
