Airport Car Rental
Get your rental car at Orlando Airport! Then drive to downtown Orlando, park your car, and take a stroll through the beautiful 50-acre Leu Gardens. Next, check out the city’s art scene at the CityArts Factory and visit the Orange County Regional History Center to learn more about the local history.
Of course, no trip to Orlando would be complete without going to Disney World—it offers enough fun and excitement to keep everyone busy for the day, but save time for SeaWorld too. Back in Orlando, check out the dining scene and enjoy some classic American food and cuisine from places like Mexico, Cuba, and the Dominican Republic, too.
Orlando’s a great destination, but the surrounding region has even more to offer, so why not get a longer-term rental? You can drive to Miami, explore the rest of Florida, or venture all the way to Atlanta or New Orleans. You can even pick up your car at Orlando Airport and drop it off in a different city. Start planning your adventure today!
If you get tired of the theme parks and want to head to a beach, here are a few of the closest and best ones to head to:
- Cocoa Beach: One of the closest beaches, Cocoa is only an hour away from Orlando along a straight shot to the east. Aside from taking in the sun on the gorgeous beach, you can visit the largest surf shop in the world, Ron Jon’s Surf Shop, and then hit the waves. It is also near Cape Canaveral, so you can go before or after visiting Kenedy Space Center.
- Canaveral National Seashore: To experience a slice of paradise, the Canaveral National Seashore is the place to go. Just a little further from Orlando, it is a pristine shoreline just waiting for you. It’s also the perfect place to watch rockets launch from Kenedy Space Center. Keep in mind that it takes a little longer to reach than the Space Center itself as you have to make a bit of a circle.
- Daytona Beach: Famous for the Daytona 500, Daytona Beach is a great place to go even when there isn’t a race. Perhaps the most unique experience it offers is the ability to drive and park right on the beach. The city is well-known for its party atmosphere, and may, therefore, not be the best destination if you seek a peaceful day at the beach. But if you want to enjoy life in a lively manner, you shouldn’t miss Daytona.
COVID-19 Update: As of February 2021, most restaurants and attractions are open and operating at a limited capacity to ensure social distancing. All major theme parks and attractions in the Orlando area are also open and operating at a limited capacity and require face masks.
All airports in the US require face coverings to be worn, and this includes Orlando International Airport. There are currently no self-isolation or testing requirements for entering Florida from other states. See the airport's page on COVID-19 for the latest information.

Note that the most direct way to reach the Disney World or Universal Orlando areas from the airport is the Martin Andersen Beachline Expressway (or, alternatively, the Central Florida GreeneWay in the case of Disney World). Both of these are toll roads.
Be aware that although it is possible to pay the toll with cash, most low-cost rental companies have a toll sticker placed in their cars that can neither be removed nor turned off. These stickers will register an electronic toll payment even if you use one of the cash lanes. If you were to decline purchasing the rental company’s toll package, you would receive hefty fines for this. The alternative is to avoid the toll roads though this will usually add time to your trip.

The other rental companies all provide free shuttles to their locations. Be sure to leave more time both for picking up the car and dropping it off if renting from one of these companies
Services and facilities
Nearest gas station
If you are seeking to return your rental car with a full tank of fuel, DO NOT stop at either of the gas stations closest to the airport, Suncoast Energys or Sun Gas. If you fill up at either station, you will pay at least twice the normal price. The Wawa, 7-11, and Mobil stations one or two blocks north offer competitive prices. These stations all work for both renters returning cars to on-airport locations and those returning cars to most off-airport locations.
Ace, Green Motion, and Routes are all located on Narcossee Road. At the exit from the Martin Andersen Beachline Expressway, there is a 7-Eleven on the south side of the highway. There is also a 7-Eleven at the intersection of Narcossee Road and Lee Vista Blvd. north of the rental locations. Avoid the BP station north of the Martin Andersen Beachline Expressway as its prices are significantly higher.
