I always smile when I see your name as that was my nickname for years when I was in the RAF, there was so many Christine's in our WRAF block the lasses decided I should be called Toots!
Hiya,

thanks so much for this, really has put my mind at ease! We are planning on using VTP as we are in and out of MCO.

I love that, made me smile. My DH has called me Toots since we met nearly 20 years ago! I mean, he calls me other things too sometimes but those aren't so good for the Dibb LOL

it is with budget, Alamo quote was around £990
never used budget before and would have preferred to go with Alamo
not too sure about the toll situation with budget as we go to Miami for the weekend where they have cashless tolls

We’ve just secured a fab price with Andy for next October/November.

£605 for an Intermediate SUV for 20 days. Pick up from Hertz in Kissimmee, return to MCO.

Just need to arrange a 1 day car hire from the airport but not sure if we are flying into TPA or MCO yet until we book flights next month.

Alamo is scary just now. We are going to get Visitor Toll Pass this time.

May I ask your dates? I'm also on the hunt for an SUV 2 weeks mid Oct 22.

Also did you have a specific pickup location in Kissimmee to give to Andy?

This is exactly our plan a cheap night at cabana bay pick the car hire up at 08.15 then off to the villa saved us over £800. Looked at the prices to change as was hoping to add an extra day on and it’s jumped up by £2k 😫

Yes of course.

We are picking the car up on the 15/10/22 from “Orlando Kissimmee - Disney World Kissimmee” and returning to MCO on the 04/11/22.

Our plan is to hire a car on the 14/10/22 from either MCO or TPA (costing around £56) to get us to our villa and then head to the Kissimmee office the next day to swap the cars over for the duration of our holiday.

Just been doing some dummy calculations for a possible Aug 22 stay and Crikey mikey!

£2200 for 20 days SUV hire next August (Avis via BA - MIA and MCO). Might as well buy my own car when I arrive.
