We are out here now, this is our Durango. Hired from Alamo at MCO.










We are 2 adults,2 kids and 1 baby and to be honest find it the perfect size. with the back row of seats folded flat there is loads of room for luggage.

One thing I would say is that with the back row of seats down there is very little room for luggage so you may need a rethink if planning on 6 or 7 of you in the vehicle.

we are averaging 14.2 miles per gallon at mo according to the on board computer.

We had booked a full size from Dollar at Sanford.The guy on the counter looked new and not quite sure if he understood properly! Anyway he said they didn't have any Chrysler 300s but we could upgrade at the cost of $20 per day to a Pacifica or Grand Tourer. DH said no thanks then after quite a bit of negotiating he was offered the Pacifica or Grand Tourer complimentary but DH said he would prefer a Dodge Magnum 3.5L V6 and the guy agreed!

The Dollar guy took the tip and then said he wouldn't swipe the credit card for fuel but asked that we bring just it back full.

We also asked him about a booster seat for DD2 who, although is older than 4, is quite small. He said don't get one from Dollar as they are too expensive - buy one from Wal-mart so we did for $15.

Here are the pics ...

Another 7 seater from Alamo at Sanford in June an Uplander, nice car with automatic sliding side doors, DVD player. Seats were 2-2-3 with a split folding rear seat. It was easy on fuel we didn't fill up in the whole 2 weeks!

We hired a compact car from Dollar at Sanford - this was the one assigned with our fly drive. It was a Dodge Caliber

It was very ugly, but it served us well and it took 4 big bags, plus a small pushchair on the return journey (I did take photos on the last day but I seem to have lost them from my camera... Fortunately all the ones from the previous days were on a different card.)
