Alamo Brits

Location: Collected from Disney Dolphin Hotel
Category booked: Standard SUV
Car supplied: GMC Arcadia Denali
Duration: 12 x nights
Cost: 301



Took the Magical Express to and from MCO so we didnt need a very big car but Alamo Brits were offering a standard SUV for the same price as an intermediate SUV on the Alamo website!

What we got was a GMC Arcadia which I have noticed being given as a Full Size SUV from some companies!




Really nice vehicle and this DENALI version was fully loaded with working Sat Nav, lane assist, rear camera, parking aids, heated and air cooled front seats, all the usual electric goodies, apple car play, electric remote tailgate, separate rear air con controls, leather interior etc.
2020 model with 13,000 miles on the clock.

A 6 x seater with three rows of 2 x seats.

Front seats

Middle row

Rear row

Plenty of room in the back especially with the rear 2 x seats folded down.




Really comfortable and the air con was brilliant - especially liked the cooled front seats.

Lane assist and the warning lights in the wing mirrors is a really useful safety feature - it also even had a vibration warning in the drivers seat that let you know when you are close to objects when parking - vibrates on each side or front/back of seat.

Not 100% sure on the fuel economy but we did around 400 miles and cost $43 to fill up with fuel.

Really great car and would love to have this vehicle again.

Booked through Andy at DFCH for luxury Cadillac or similar, no hard sell at counter asked if i wanted something bigger or sat nav said no just to pay for tank of gas, paper work given and out to garage. Helped by a nice guy only 1 caddy in line which he said had something wrong with it and gave me a choice of 2 identical Audi Q5 quattros. Ok car would rather have had the caddy. no working sat nav but had android which worked great with google maps.

When we arrived at the Alamo garage they only had a choice of two cars in the Premium elite SUV section, a 2018 Infiniti QX80 and a 2019 Discovery, the Infiniti didnt have working navigation or Apple CarPlay so it was an easy decision.

Place you picked the car up from:- MCO
Catergory of car hired:- Full Size SUV
Make of car you got:- Infiniti QX80
Hire car company used: Alamo via DFCH

When I arrived at the garrage they offered me the Nissan Armada or the Infiniti QX80 (This is listed as a luxury SUV) - opted for the QX80. Overall was very impressed with it, 5.6 litre V8 that drunk the fuel. Loads of room - has 6 seats but we had the back row down to make the boot bigger. Loads of gadgets - really liked the 360 overview camera - made parking so easy. Be careful with the hight though - only just got into a couple of multi-storey car parks.

These were the best pics I have of it...

Really good car. Plenty of room for us, a couple. Would take four large cases in the boot.
Plenty of toys, and has apple car play. Used an unlimited data US sim, and plugged iPhone into the car and used Apple maps for the Sat nav. Worked great and had lane indication too.











Heres a few videos of the car play...
