Car hires in Orlando: practical information

Where to rent a car in Orlando

With Walt Disney World and Universal Studios just outside of Orlando, it's no wonder so many travellers opt for renting a car for holidays in Orlando! There are so many great attractions within easy reach, fun for kids (both young and old!). It's essential to get a cheap car hire in Orlando since all of the region's attractions are spread out and poorly connected with public transportation. Whether you arrive at Orlando Sanford International Airport or Orlando International Airport, the airport is the best place to pick up your rental.

Apart from the airport you can find a rent car company along the city's main streets. Rent a Wreck is just off 408 and S Orange Blossom Trail while National Car Rental can be found on E South Street. There is a Hertz next to the Orlando train station. Enterprise is on E Colonial Drive.

Driving in Orlando: parking and other tips

Keep in mind that you will need to pay for parking at all of Orlando's theme parks. At Universal Studios, for example, it costs $15/day per vehicle. If you park just for the evening, between 6:00pm and 10:00pm, it's only $3. An all-day parking pass at Walk Disney World costs $12 per vehicle.

In Orlando itself you will find ample parking either in car parks or on the street, especially in and around the Amway Center. It costs on average between $12 and $15/day to park in a municipal car park and around $1/hour on the street. Remember however that street parking has a maximum during the day, usually just 1 hour.

Road trips from Orlando: what to do, what to see

Tampa's Beaches

Orlando to Clearwater

What's a trip to Florida without visiting some of the beaches in and around Orlando? St. Petersburg Beach and Clearwater Beach are near Tampa while Dayton is on the other side of the "finger," about 1 hour drive away. Our recommendation? Clearwater Beach, it's one of the most highly rated beaches in the entire state. Apart from swimming and building sand castles, you can rent kayaks, go on boat tours and try your hand a jet-skiing or paragliding if you like. Don't forget to pack the sunscreen!

Tampa Bay

Orlando to Tampa Bay

It takes a mere 90 minutes to reach Tampa Bay, a chance you cannot miss! The area's biggest attraction is there, Busch Gardens which not only has a wide variety of animals but plenty of rides, roller coasters and other thrills, with an African twist. The park is home to more tan 2,700 animals, making it one of the biggest zoological institutions in the world! Other attractions include the University of Florida Botanical Gardens, Lowry Park Zoo and the Florida Aquarium.

Kennedy Space Center

Orlando to Kennedy Space Center

The famous Kennedy Space Center is just one hour's drive from Orlando, a great place to visit for the day, especially if you have any buddhist astronauts in the family. Have you ever wondered what it's like to be an astronaut? Have you ever wanted to see a rocket ship take-off? Now is your chance to find out in one of the weightlessness simulators! The Visitor Centre features a number of exhibits, displays and some cool hands-on simulators.
