Orlando International Airport completes rental car areas

About 96 percent of all the rental cars available at Orlando International Airport should now be ready for visitors in the airport’s parking garages, now that a $60 million renovation of rental car service areas is completed.

Orlando International expanded its rental car service areas adjacent to the terminal parking garages. That means more room for rental car companies to prep returned cars for their next use within the airport. The companies may then pull them into rental car spaces reserved in the parking garage to be ready for customers.

As a result, all the major agencies now can have cars ready for use parked in the parking garages, so visitors can walk over from the terminal to claim them. In the past, much of the rental car business operated from remote lots outside the Orlando International property, and many rental car customers had to board shuttle buses to go get their cars. In the past few months, Thrifty, Enterprise, Hertz and Advantage are moving rental cars into the parking garages, joining Alamo, Avis, Budget, Dollar, National and two small rental-car companies, E-Z and L&M.

There’s still a handful of independent and niche rental car agencies that prep and offer their cars at remote locations and run shuttle buses from the terminal.

The $60 million project was paid for with a special $2.50 tax levied in 2008 on airport rental cars.
