Car Rental or Sedan Service?

I know Disney transportation will be most convenient but I'm trying to avoid the hefty price tag. I see most of the town car services are almost as much and I am not familiar with them personally. Do you have any recs for a trusted town car service that might save some money? Or a car rental company that makes it easy to rent from MCO and return at Port Canaveral? We have two young children so there will be a toddler seat and booster seat involved with any cars. Thanks in advance for any info you can share!

we also have two young children, have done both, once on the same cruise. b/c we came in the night before we rented a car from MCO, since we didn't want to bring the car seats on the plane we rented for the day from Hertz. was quick pick up at MCO and drop off at PC was simple. Hertz seemed to be the closest to the Port, it's in the parking lot of residence inn.

On our return we had a car service pick us up b/c we were headed straight to the airport for our flight home. We used Happy Limo, reservation process was simple, when the Dream arrived in port and we turned our cell phones back on we already had a voicemail waiting for us to confirm the pick up time, when we were exiting customs we gave the driver a call who was staged nearby and by the time we were on out of the terminal our upgraded strecth navigator pulled up and the kids eye's lit up, thought this was a nice way to cap off an amazing vacation.

so long story short used, hertz and Happy Limo and would recommend both

We travel to Orlando often and use Bond Motors to get to/from our condo. They also go to port and it's not super expensive. They provide car seats free of charge. We've gone through a few car services and really like Bond.

I was thinking of using a car service this time, but when I saw the $145 price on Tiffany's site, I decided against it. Got a rental from Avis for $47 and I can pick up Avis on Disney property.

And Avis will store your car seats. We have used them for both of our cruises and have no issues. Rent at MCO, drive to hotel by port, return car on morning of cruise and take Avis shuttle to ship.
