KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Lake Buena Vista

  • When you choose to get a car hire in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, you can experience all that this incredible region has to offer on your own schedule. Use your Lake Buena Vista car hire to drive between different nearby theme parks, from Orlando Sea World to Disney’s Animal Kingdom. You can also use your car hire in Lake Buena Vista to explore beautiful scenic attractions, like the Twin Oaks Conservation Area, which is not easily accessible via public transport.
  • Start your Florida adventure on your own time by hiring a car at Orlando International Airport (MCO). Arriving passengers will find car hire desks on Ground Transportation Level 1 inside both Terminals A and B. You can also use free shuttle buses to reach off-airport car hire branches. Shuttles can be accessed from Level 1 in Terminal A, spaces A11-13, and from Level 1 in Terminal C, spaces C279-280. Orlando Airport is located around a 20-minute drive from Lake Buena Vista, compared with 1h 20min by public transport.
  • Driving your car hire in Lake Buena Vista can be an extremely enjoyable experience, with plenty of well-maintained and spacious highways to explore. If you’re not used to driving on busy roads, driving your Lake Buena Vista car hire might be a bit of an adjustment. Many highways around Florida are four-lane and hold a high volume of traffic. You should also take care to keep up with the flow of traffic when driving in Florida, as it is common to get tickets for driving too slowly or obstructing other vehicles.
  • The roads around Lake Buena Vista are generally very busy, with highways around Disney World and the lake area being hotspots for tourists during the high season. If you want to beat the crowds on the way to nearby theme parks, it is a good idea to set off early. This will also make finding parking and queuing for entry easier. It is also important to keep an eye on the weather when you are driving in Florida. The state experiences a high level of tropical storms, which can bring extreme weather events, like flooding or tornadoes. Make sure you check the forecast before setting out, especially on longer drives, and keep essentials like water, sun cream, or your phone in the car with you.
  • Book your car hire in Lake Buena Vista at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

Overly impressed with the experience from Sixt. Reservation was easy, car was meticulously clean, and THE Juan at the rental counter in the Hyatt Grand Cyprus was polite, friendly, and professional.

When I droped the car off at the end of the rental they told me to leave the car they would sort it out. While I'm in the airport I got an email saying there was damage on the car. There was no damage on the car when I droped it off. I was extremely careful of where I parked the car during my rental for this reason. I still haven't seen this damage.

Cons:

We didnt understand that when the car we rented wasn’t available, that the car offered was going to cost us another 790.00. We paid 1200.00 to rent a car for less than 48 hours. We spent the total of 2.5 hours in this car. I am just so upset and feel taken advantage of. We were promised $250.00 back on our credit card and have not seen that yet. I would be fine with paying $400 dollars for the car, but 1200.00 is absolutely ridiculous and robbery.

Cons:

Made a same-day reservation online. When I went to pick up, desk was not staffed. When staff appeared, she told me no cars were available and she had no suggestions to offer. I called another nearby office and was told they couldn't do anything for me. The implication was that same-day reservations are meaningless and that I should have known that.

Pros:

The price was reasonable. Didn’t know it was absolutely no frill.

Cons:

First: I was given a car with less than 1/2 tank of gas. BUT, per the counter person, I could prepay for gas because of the prepaid status. I couldn’t do any add on BUT... I was expected to bring it back with a full tank. The ‘computer’ was down at the office and we had to drive to another office to complete the transaction. Had not used Hertz in some time. Do not plan to use again.

Pros:

Scheduled day for pickup all locations were closed in Central Florida. We went to a couple of them and tried others by phone and contacting Dollar several times. We ended up renting from Enterprise at last minute from airport just as another family did that was truing to pick up their rental at the closed locations. Not sure what another lady did that was also trying to pick up her rental from a closed location.

Cons:

Not to have scheduled pick up of rentals on July 4th when all Dollar locations in Central Florida were closed with no employees in site. What a mess it was for us and a couple other families trying to pick up their non existent rentals. We ended up paying hundreds more for an Enterprise mini van rental but at least they were open at the Orlando airport.
