You can quickly visit several attractions and maximize your sightseeing when using a Longwood car rental, as you don't rely on public transport schedules. With a Longwood car rental, you can quickly drive to various attractions in Longwood, including Wekiva Springs State Park, Altamonte Mall, Lake Monroe, the Seminole-Wekiva Trail, and Little Big Econ State Forest.
  • When flying into Longwood, you can rent a car at either Orlando International Airport (MCO), about 34 miles from Longwood, or Orlando Sanford International Airport (SFB), approximately 10 miles from Longwood city center. The car rentals in Longwood at MCO are in a rental car center accessible by complimentary shuttles from the airport terminal. You can board the shuttles on level 1 of the airport terminal. The rental counters in SFB are also in a separate facility, accessible by walkways from the terminal building. Ensure you have the necessary documents for the rental process. You must also be at least 21 years to rent a car from the Longwood car rental companies in SFB and MCO.
  • Expect a smooth driving experience when driving car rentals in Longwood. Ensure you yield to pedestrians in intersections and crosswalks, whether marked or unmarked. Be cautious when driving near parks, schools, and shopping areas, as you may encounter increased pedestrian traffic. The city subscribes to a law that requires drivers to move over one lane or slow down to 20 mph below the posted speed limit when emergency vehicles, law enforcement, and service vehicles stop on the side of the road with lights flashing.
  • Rush hour in Longwood typically occurs from 7:00 am to 9:00 am and from 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm, when most residents commute to and from work. State Road 434 and Interstate 4 are Longwood’s major roads, which are affected by traffic during the rush hours. The city may experience heavy rainfall during the rainy seasons from June to September, which may affect driving conditions as the roads become slippery and hazardous. Check the weather information and get a Longwood car rental with high ground clearance for a smooth driving experience during these seasons. The sunny climate in the city may cause sun glare during specific times of the day; therefore, when driving, ensure you adjust your driving and use a sun visor to maintain clear visibility on roads.

When we picked up the car after hours (paid for earlier in the day), the front driver's side had low tire pressure, and when I went to fill the tire, we noticed a slit in the tire, and the tire was almost bald. When we checked the passenger side tire, that tire was also in bad shape. I called Hertz around 6:00 PM, and they said they would pick up the car within 90 minutes. The tow truck did not show up until 11:00 PM, and I would have to go to OIA to pick up another vehicle. We decided that it would be too late, considering I had to be on the road early in the morning, so I used my daughter's car for the trip. I contacted Hertz customer service, and they were no help. On Monday, I contacted Hertz in Longwood for my money back. The clerk was very helpful, but I have not received my money so far.e

The value of the agreed rental price changed once I was there to pick up the car. Hertz blamed it on a glitch on the kayak website and over charge my rental.

Pros:

CHRYSLER VAN WAS NICE & ROOMY.

Cons:

I drove down to Enterprise the week before when i made the reservation with KAYAK to confirm they had me in the system.....and they did. When i went to pickup the van Enterprise said they cancelled the order......WHAT!!!!! Representative said they tried to reach me by phone the day before and did not get me to confirm rental........WHAT! I showed him the VMS i recieved and that I called right back and did not get a sole to answer the phone. I told the Rep that most other companies use TEXT to verify / confirm transactions. Glad I saved the VMS & Phone call times. My guess is that they rented my van to another unhappy customer? Manager came out and resolved the issue and had a van delivered from the airport to their site......I had to come back later to pickup the van. Never had much luck with Enterprise and probably will avoid using them again.......always seem shady in their dealings with me.

Good. It could be better if there was a sign indicating that the Avis was inside the hotel. Or an email letting me know. I went around in circles thinking the gps brought me to the wrong place

Cons:

Man at the counter in Altamonte springs mall got surly when I would not sign the form saying I had inspected the car and everything was OK. I had not seen the car and told him that. He then informed me that he said the car was OK. Also they could at least clean the windows - they were filthy. After refusing extra insurance 2 x's, that is enough. OK?
