Flights: into Orlando International Airport (MCO) or Sanford (SFB). Prices from the UK are variable, but you can get some good deals from companies like those below; click on the links for availability and prices.   It’s a good idea to combine your flight purchase with car hire, as you can often get a better deal with a fly-drive package.



Car rental: can be arranged at the airport on arrival, or pre-booked. Minimum driving age is 21 (25 for some rental companies); and you should take out insurance, including collision damage waiver (CDW). We recommend you pre-book in order to ensure all regulations are met, and to avoid any "nasty surprises" at the start of your holiday. Companies include Alamo, Avis, Budget, Dollar and Hertz; click on the company names for availability and prices.  


PLEASE BE AWARE: if you have a pre-paid voucher for vehicle rental, be careful to comply with the quoted pick-up & return times – there will be an additional charge if you pick up early or return late, and you may not find out the cost until you return the vehicle at the end of your holiday.


Driving: fuel is cheaper than in the UK, and sold in US gallons (smaller than UK gallons, at around 3.75 litres/gallon). Speed limits are generally 55mph (65mph in some areas) and 20mph to 40mph in built-up areas. Driving on the right, you are allowed to turn right at a red (stop) light, unless signposted otherwise.   You should also remember that there is no restriction on “undertaking” – vehicles can pass in any lane, and you will need to keep a sharp watch until you get used to the concept!


Maps: basic maps are available from car-hire companies and tourist venues. Road junctions are usually numbered differently from in the UK: by miles distant from the starting point of the road, and not consecutively (as a rough guide, even-numbered roads run east-west, and odd-numbered roads run north-south).  If you have a sat-nav that can be really useful; otherwise, a good plan would be to use internet maps such as Google Maps to pre-plan your journey.
