Top tips for renting a car at Orlando Sanford Intl Airport
When flying into Orlando Sanford International Airport (SFB), booking a car in advance is the wisest decision you can make. When you reserve a car rental at Orlando Sanford Intl Airport through KAYAK, you don't need to wait in line upon arrival. You simply go straight to the rental desks that are conveniently located on-site. Generally, roads in Orlando are easier to navigate with cars, giving you an edge over shuttle services that get crowded sometimes. The best part of driving a rented vehicle is the variety of options lined up for you, from packing extra snacks, stopping over at your preferred spots, and the comfort of traveling solo.
Locating Orlando Sanford Intl Airport’s car rental center is quick thanks to clear directions and company logos displayed inside and outside the terminals. After clearance at the passport control, pick up your baggage and don't leave behind any of your belongings at the airport because you may not be allowed in again. The majority of the car rental companies are inside the building across the road. Exit the terminal and cross Red Cleveland Blvd to pick up your car keys.
In Sanford, FL, traffic often delays in the morning around 7.30 am to 9.30 am and in the evening (4.30 pm to 6.30 pm). Luckily, with a car rental at Orlando Sanford Intl Airport, you can evade most of the road congestion by taking toll routes. Most car rental companies provide the SunPass sticker to help you drive through the toll stress-free. In case you don't get the pass from the company, have some cash ready to pay at the toll booths.
Depending on the car rental service, you have different options for fueling the car. Some providers like Enterprise allow you to prepay for the fuel, i.e., refill the fuel tank during pick-up and return it empty. But there's no refund for unused fuel. Another option is to pay for the fuel used after the trip. Or, you can return the car with the same level of gas as received. After hours of adventure, return the vehicle to the rental facility's park and lock it. Most of the car return signs are displayed along Cleveland Boulevard, the same place for pick-ups. Drop the keys and the completed contract in the designated box.
