With incredible beaches and world renowned theme parks to enjoy, Orlando and the state of Florida are havens for those looking for a holiday with plenty to do. If you’re flying into Orlando International Airport, you’ll know that Walt Disney World and Universal Studios are within easy reach, and we expect you’ll want to collect your hire car as soon as you arrive.
You'll find our branch is on Airport Boulevard, conveniently located outside the arrivals lounge and superbly situated for an easy drive in and out of the airport complex – you will be able to pick-up your hire car and get straight out on the open road.
And with frequent flyer miles to pick up plus no credit card fees to pay, you can be sure that hiring a car with us is worth it.
With some of the greatest theme parks in the world just down the road in Orlando, it’s no wonder some families can’t wait to get out of the airport complex. If you’re looking for somewhere to head out to once you land at Orlando International Airport, check out our video for some inspiration.
From the airport, simply follow Airport Boulevard a short distance north to the major freeway intersection and from there you’ll be able to join the local road system. Whether you’re heading to International Drive on business or driving the kids directly to Disney, you can be on your way easily.
You can also head west on State Road 551 to Williamsburg and Lake Butler, south on 91 to Kissimmee or take the 528 east for the Canaveral National Seashore and cruise terminals. Driving in Orlando is generally relaxed and easy. The road system is good, with wide, well-maintained roads usually arranged in a grid pattern, and traffic moves at a moderate speed through the city. This central area of Florida is particularly car-friendly, with straight, multi-lane boulevards and massive car parks for even the smallest shops and restaurants.
The driving laws for Orlando and Florida are much the same as the rest of the USA. You drive on the right and the rules include a compulsory wearing of seatbelts for everyone in the car. You must always carry your registration and insurance card in the vehicle.
Speed limits are roughly what you’d expect: on rural motorways the maximum is 70mph, and 65mph if it’s an urban stretch.
With a wide range of travellers passing through our locations every day, we've got a wide range of vehicles on offer to suit your needs - from smart executive saloons to compact family hatchbacks. ***

It’s no wonder that ‘The Sunshine State’ is one of the most popular visitor attractions in the US. The weather is usually hot and sunny, it has more theme parks than almost anywhere on the planet as well as a long list of attractions like beaches, exciting cities and natural wonders.
Florida is actually a long peninsular at the south-eastern corner of the US. Jacksonville is to the north and Miami to the south – but if you’ve landed at Orlando international airport, you’ve arrived in the middle. The airport serves the attractions and businesses of one of America’s biggest tourist destinations but also provides a gateway to both coasts and the cities of mid-Florida.
To the west, the Gulf Coast boasts glamorous beach resorts like St Petersburg, Clearwater and Sarasota, while the Atlantic Coast to the east offers the famous Daytona Beach plus the memorable attraction of Kennedy Space Centre at Canaveral. If you’re wanting to explore the whole of Florida, then look no further as we've got a great guide on the best seven things to see and do.
Mid-Florida’s main visitor attractions are the theme parks around Orlando and Kissimmee, which include some of the biggest tourism names in the world, like the Universal Resort, Busch Gardens and Walt Disney World Resort, the planet’s most visited theme park.
You’ll be able to drive to the Disney parks and hotels easily from the airport - it’s only 20 miles west and the 528 toll road gets you there in half an hour. The Universal Resort is even closer. Busch Gardens African-themed amusement park and zoo is a longer drive - it’s 85 miles to the west near Tampa. Other major attractions in the area include Gatorland – an alligator themed wildlife park – and Wet ‘n Wild, a massive water park.
You’ll find the central tourist highway through Orlando is called International Drive, known to locals as ‘I-Drive’. This four-lane, tree-lined road meanders roughly north to south for 11 miles and many hotels, restaurants and attractions are based on or near it. Look out for the Orlando Eye big wheel, the Wonderworks hands-on science centre, and Fun Spot children’s theme park.
You'll have an eating experience like no other if you choose to dine on International Drive. See if you can solve the puzzle at Sleuths Mystery Dinner Shows, or for a blockbuster line-up Treasure Tavern Dinner Theatre is the perfect way to spend an evening. The Orlando Improv Comedy Club & Dinner Theatre is well-suited to a more grown up crowd, with some of the city's finest comedians on show.
Away from the attractions, Orlando is home to the University of Central Florida – one of the biggest in the USA. The downtown area, to the northeast of the tourist district, has an array of skyscrapers including the 441ft Sun Trust Centre. The combination of tourism and business with plenty of flights means that Orlando is also a major centre for business conventions. Try to spot the Orange County Convention Centre – it’s one the largest in the USA.
Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
