Please straighten me out.
Thanks so much,

Most if not all of the major companies have on-site locations at the new car rental center, so you should be good to go. I will say be careful and pay attention especially when returning the car, as you have two options (for terminal A and B) and you want to end up on the correct side. Also, not sure if it was just me, but once inside the garage yesterday on the return trip the corners are sharp and the signage is not great. I ended up in the Dollar return lane for my Hertz rental, so I had to spend a few extra minutes getting to the right return location.

Question

Thank you, but do you know which companies have cars right on-site? We don't want to take the chance of booking with a company now and getting to the airport and finding out we have to get on a shuttle to claim our car.

On this website, it says Hertz is on-site. But I have their address for the cars as 3.7 miles away from the airport. So I think their Rental company desk is at the airport, but then they shuttle you to get your car. We'd rather just walk across from the airport and get in a rental car.

Anybody know which companies we can book with, in order to get a car right at the airport?

Thanks,
Pomcoach

I think the first post in this thread lists 9 car rental companies that are on-site.

If memory serves me right when we rented from Enterprise we just walked out the door, across the street, got on an elevator that took us up to the level that Enterprise was on and got our car from there.

Many airlines are updating there ticket counters...some airlines only "rent" space, so they may be bit old...

The technology behind the scenes though...is not out of date...I work there, I have first hand knowledge..

What are the hours of the shops? We will be arriving at 10pm, but we have to wait for other family members who come in an hour later.

Thanks!

Thank you so much for this thread
I am actually flying into America in SanFran and catching a domestic to Orlando and then flying out domestic to LA and then catht he international home...as long as I find the terminals and where I'm meant to be I'll be good lol Have not been on a plane in ten years (and that was my first and only time, and was local travel) so am very nervous about getting around airports in general.

I'm a huge fan of LUSH products, and there is a shop in the Orlando airport! They make wonderfully-scented, handmade and fresh bath and body products.

The bad news is, it's located in the Landside building, so when-not IF-I buy something, it will have to be before going through security.

The good news is, they will ship it home for free! So no worries about buying a big bottle of liquid shampoo/body wash and having TSA take it away from you.

We are renting a car in May at the airport. The directions to our hotel say to use the North exit to get out of the airport.

My problem is, the last two times I rented a car at MCO (years ago) there were no signs to the north exit and both times we ended up getting spit out of the South exit before we even knew what was happening.

Can anyone give me some directions or advice? For once, I'd like to find the North exit. Does it really exist?
