Has anybody used them before and if so, what were your experiences? They have the cheapest rate for Easter week and it seems like they're located right in MCO (or I'm mistaken!). Any feedback is appreciated.

used them last year. they are not at mco but a short shuttle away 10 mins. not a bad experience but they do try to sell you on upgrades and insurance be prepared to say no. shuttle did not come as frequent as others.

They just filed for bankruptcy protection earlier this month:

I would stay way from them right now until they reorganize.

On another note I have not heard great things about them from other posters. My only experience was six years ago when we rented a convertible to go to the Daytona 500. They actually gave us a brand new Chrysler Sebring that still had plastic on the seats and only 12 miles on it.

Also, they are not in the airport, they are off site.
