There are lots of ways to get to and from the airport. Going to one of the cheap MCO car rental agencies and renting a cheap MCO car is a great way to go. The usual major companies are located within the airport in both Terminals A and B on Level 1 but you'll usually get a much better deal by going to one of the cheaper MCO Independent car rental agencies located off-airport. They may be close by. They can afford to be cheaper because they don't have to pay expensive airport fees.
These agencies, of which Continental Rent A Car, Signature Rent-A-Car, Global Rent A Car of South Florida, American Car Rental are a few are independent agencies. All offer airport pickup and delivery. Just remember to bring the agency's phone number, so you can call for them to get you while waiting for your luggage. You can find them all at Orlando International page on our website, along with customer reviews and rates.
