We highly recommend the car hire company we used when we visited Orlando last year. We are a family party of 8 so we decided to hire 2 cars. One of the drivers had not driven in the US before and we always dislike arriving at an unknown destination after a long flight and having to get used to a new car and find our way out of the airport to our holiday villa. However, I saw a recommendation on a website for a unique company based in Kissimmee who offered to pick us all up at Orlando Airport in their minibus, take us to our villa and the cars would be waiting for us on the drive. Hence, their name ‘Car on the Drive’.

Their response to emails and advice and information offered before the holiday was really first class and reassuring.

It worked out even better than we had hoped. Peter from the company met us at the Airport, waited with us for our cases to arrive from the second case drop which is always a hassle at Orlando. He helped us with our luggage and we were quickly in the minibus on the way to our villa. No need to queue at the Car Hire desk, find directions and navigate unknown roads in the dark! Sure enough on arrival at the villa, 2 smart cars were waiting in the drive, ready for us to drive the next morning. Peter came into the villa and the paperwork was signed on the kitchen table while the rest of the party started to unpack. Car on the Drive also offer a service of an ice box waiting for you in the boot of the car filled with the items you have pre-ordered on their website. So coffee, tea, beers and wine, together with snacks and pizzas were waiting for us to enjoy that evening and breakfast items too for the next day.

It really was an excellent service and not one we have heard being offered anywhere else. It may cost slightly more than hiring a car at the airport but considering the costs of a Disney type holiday in Florida anyway, it was a small extra amount to pay for the convenience it offered. Highly recommended!

    This sounds such a good idea it makes you wonder why no one else has thought of it.
