Not sure that you'll get many responses posting inside a "sticky" but I spotted it as I was on Forum Spy.

Your car will automatically be enabled for Sunpass. You need to do nothing as you credit card will simply be billed. All explained here.

You can of course just pay cash.

As mentioned you can just drive through all of the Sun Pass lanes and they will bill you at the end. You don't have to inform Alamo.
I think the charge is set over a two week period plus the tolls you drive through.
The most I have ever been charged is about 22

Cool

Place you picked the car up from:- MCO
Category of car hired:- Standard SUV
Make of car you got:- Ford Explorer Limited
Hire car company used:- Alamo (brits)
Paid - 316 all in

Arrived at MCO on 5th October, went straight to the Alamo parking lot. No sign of a Ford Explorer which I was determined that I wanted. I went back to the kiosk to ask one of the assistants if she had a Ford Explorer and explained that I had always wanted one. She did a quick phone call to her boss and about 5-10 mins later after hanging around not sure whether I was getting the car I wanted or not and then one of the staff drew up in a Ford Explorer... great success! I gave $20 to the assistant that I had originally spoken too and off we went.
Very nice car with all the mod cons you could ask for including full leather interior, Sat Nat (although I still used my own Sat Nav as I prefer it)... with the option of Sport mode which I used all the time! Although I needed a few trips to the gas station but I was on holiday so hey ho!
The seats went flat in the back which was ideal for the cases and this was done at the flick of a switch.
All in all fab car!

Great update DavieBhoy, pleased you got what you wanted.
Can you post the pictures in the 'sticky' for 'Post your car hire pictures here' then more people will probably see them.
Thanks.

Does anyone have the update for what makes/models for each of the following are with Alamo from MCO. Thanks

4 Door FULL Size Car- Toyota Camry or similar


Standard SUV- Hyundai Santa or similar

And any tips or feedback on which is best for a big American style car that is different to the norm in the here UK.

Thanks

Hi all,

Anyone had a Mustang from Alamo recently? Is it the 2.3 Ecoboost or the V6 engine?
