Transportation from MCO to Renaissance

I want to reserve a car for our Christmas Day arrival from the airport to the Renaissance Seaworld. Could someone help me make up my mind? Have seen mostly good reviews on Tiffany but am a little nervous since its Christmas Day. Any recent reviews on them would be great!

I just called Tiffany and she said $109 round trip. Is that a good price? I thought I read that cabs are only $40 each way and readily available. Maybe a cab is the way to go instead? Can anyone confirm taxi prices?

if you have only 4 in your group, i would go with the taxi.


if you rented a car, you would be paying the garage fee at the parks.
so you would need to include that additional costs when you figure out which is more economically better for your family.

also consider the gas cost as you have to refill the rental,

and if there are parking fees at the hotel where you will be staying.

Since this thread has nothing to do with Universal, I'm going to move it to the Transportation Board.

I like Tiffany towncar as well as Florida Tours -we use them both !

IMHO the $110 is a good price esp for a family of 4. A cab may start at about $40 each way but my experience is more like $55-60 depending on the traffic and the route.

With a towncar and 4 passengers you will be much more comfortable in the vehicle, you will be met at baggage claim and the driver will help with bags.

Both FL tours and Tiffany provide a complimentary 30 minute grocery stop. I find this a huge cost savings to have water, soda juice, snacks, fruit etc in the room.
