Orlando Car Hire

The United States of America are so vast that hiring a car is a must. Anyone who wants to fully appreciate a State like Florida, will quickly realise that many of its breathtaking beauty spots are accessible only by car.

Car rental lets you plan your own round of sight seeing, or business meetings, according to your own agenda.

Popular car hire companies include Alamo and Dollar who are based at Orlando airport. Care should be taken when renting a car to ensure that the pickup and dropoff are at the airport.

Driving Tips

  • Buckle up! Florida law does require that you wear a seatbelt.

  • State law requires the use of headlights in the rain.

  • You can turn right on red, unless signs say otherwise.

  • They're not kidding, posted speed limits are enforced!

  • In an emergency you can reach the Florida Highway Patrol on a cell phone by dialing *FHP.

  • You must have a Florida handicap permit to park in handicap parking areas.

  • Permits from other states are honored, but a disabled license plate alone won't do.
  • Be alert to slippery road conditions when it rains (aka Florida ice).

  • Remember to allow for rush hour traffic between 7-9am and 4-6pm on weekdays.

  • In addition to the thousands of people heading to the theme parks, many local residents are going to be heading to work also. To avoid disappointments be sure to factor in any possible delays into your time schedule.
