Hiring a car in Orlando

Holidays in Orlando, Florida, are not all about Disney although the variety of theme parks are a pretty big attraction. Orlando hotels tend to be clustered around the major tourist attractions, but it pays to go off the beaten track, let the kids have their fun and then take off with a car rental in Orlando. Holidays in Orlando can be based by the major theme parks, including Disney and Universal Orlando Resort, which includes Universal Studios and Universal's Island of Adventure. However, with cheap Orlando car hire, you can go beyond the theme parks and get wet in one of the many water parks.

Places to visit in Orlando

One scenic drive worth exploring is the mid Florida Atlantic coast, which takes in the Cape Canaveral area, Cocoa Beach and Satellite Beach. If you don't fancy venturing that far, there is Kissimmee, offering a wealth of outdoor recreation, including canoeing, kayaking, exploring the headwaters of the Everglades or air boating across Lake Toho. If it's action you're after, you can fly a real military plane in Warbird Adventures or on the shores of Lake Bryan, Buena Vista Water Sports has every water sport going. For early birds, (typically 6am start) try Orlando balloon rides.

General Advice on Hiring a Car

When you purchase car hire you are entering into a contract with your car hire company. Always check their terms and conditions before you buy to make sure you're aware of your responsibilities when you collect your car in Orlando, and any additional charges.


Here's a few things to watch out for:

  • Almost all car hire companies add a mandatory fee for drivers under the age of 25.
  • Check what level of insurance is included for the hire car in Orlando. In particular check how much the excess is (the amount you need to pay in the event of any accident) you may want to take out additional insurance.
  • Check what the fuel policy is with your car. Don't forget to fill up the tank before you drop it off if you've agreed to return it full!
  • Find out if there's a maximum daily mileage - especially if you're planning to do a lot of driving in Orlando!
  • You'll need to pay a deposit (or pre-approve one) to pick up the car. Most car rental companies will only accept credit cards for this.
