Hertz is £128 for a one way, one day hire from Tampa-Orlando airport

You wouldn't want to drop off at MCO as you'd still need to get to where you were staying, Universal in the OP's case it seems.

I looked on Lyft about $130 each way so about £200 in total. So I think it is worth it.

What about recommendations for chauffeurs!

Orlando Airport would be no good as would still need to get into Orlando itself.

From checking for TPA to International Drive (or nearby) is £128 for a compact, but SUV is £204.

Had uber from MCO and Sanford and both were roughly 50 odd bucks each way so you wont be paying much more and saving loads on the flights

You can get a Redcoach bus from Tampa to Orlando, check out their website for your dates.
