Top tips for renting a car in Central Florida

  • The temperatures in Central Florida, regardless of time of year, can be quite warm. In the summers, however, they can be sweltering. If you are traveling to the area any time between spring and fall, you’ll want to be sure that you secure a rental vehicle that has good air conditioning. In the winter months, when the temperatures are still warm but more temperate, a convertible could be a fun option.
  • Central Florida is a large and exciting area to explore. What’s more, there are lots of opportunities for adventure and exploration, including lakes, beaches, and some of the world’s most renowned amusement parks. If you plan to pack a lot into your trip, you’ll want to secure a vehicle that can pack a lot of gear but can also travel the vast territory economically. For this reason, mid-sized vehicles can be a good choice for the region.
  • Florida’s traffic laws typically mimic the laws that can be found throughout the rest of the United States. Specifically, it’s worth noting that it is illegal to use a handheld device, such as a tablet or cell phone, while you are driving in Central Florida. This form of distracted driving could result in a hefty fine. It’s recommended that you opt for a vehicle with Bluetooth capabilities if you anticipate the need to use your device for directions or phone calls.
  • If you plan to spend a majority of your time in some of the larger cities in Central Florida—such as Orlando or Tampa—then you’ll want to secure a smaller vehicle. While the infrastructure for motorways throughout Florida is very good, a smaller vehicle may benefit you when it comes to finding parking spots in the region’s metropolises.

This is especially true for the heart of Central Florida, which is where Orlando can be found. However, if your objective is to explore more extensively, then you’ll want to rent a car for your trip. Journeys between cities or major sites of interest can be lengthy, given the size of the region; with a rental car, you have greater liberty to dictate the number of stops you take along the trip and the departure times that might best suit your travel agenda. Furthermore, securing a rental vehicle will grant you autonomy to explore less frequented locations.

  • What is driving like in Central Florida?

    Although Central Florida has a number of tourist hot-spots that attract travelers year round, driving in the region is surprisingly easy and free of stress. The motorways are well-maintained and the lanes on roads are comfortable and wide. Whether you’re traversing the highway between major sites of interest, or journeying into the downtown areas, driving is easy. That said, it is critical to note some of the traffic laws in Florida. For instance, all occupants of a vehicle are required to wear seatbelts if they’re under the age of 18. Regardless of age, the person operating the vehicle is required to wear a seatbelt.

  • How old do you have to be to rent a car in Central Florida?

    the minimum age to secure a rental vehicle in Florida varies depending upon the rental car agency. Generally, 21 is the age threshold; however, some companies may designate 22 as the minimum age. And there are other companies that may allow drivers as young as 18 to rent cars. That said, depending on the company, there could be a restriction placed on the vehicle categories that are available to drivers who are younger than 25 years old.
