www.orlandosanfordairport.com/rental.asp has a list of the rental companies.

I would be interested to hear any feedback from others as well. We will be renting from there the end of April for the first time. So far the best rate I have found is the minivan am. ex. deal $177 a week :thumbsup2 plus fees........

We flew into Sanford twice, both time we rented from Dollar. It's right outside the terminal.. a short walk. The airport is so small, everything is a short walk :)
We had no problems at all... we even asked for a different vehicle once, and the guy was really nice and upgraded us for no charge.

I'm considering flying into Sanford this year too.. the only thing is that they changed their flight times to night flights :( We would arrive at 9:55pm, assuming no delays. We're renting from National this time, and the National rental desk closes at 10:30. If the plane arrived on time I have no doubt we'd make it, especially if we got our luggage after I checked the car out. But if there's any kind of delay, I don't know what we'd do.
I think we'll have to fly into MCO to be safe. I really like Sanford, too bad.

Anyway... you'll love the airport. Small and very friendly. Very easy to get to Disney from there too! About 45 minutes or so.

I would go to Travelocity to compare rates (it also lists companies and if a shuttle is required.) Then pick the lowest couple of rates and go to some coupon sites such as:

http://www.rentalcodes.com

Find any relevant coupon codes and book directly at the car rental company sites as you can cancel anytime or change your reservation without penalty.
