Yesterday I sat in (quietly) on a Universal Webcast all about the new expansion to the Wizarding World. Lots of great attractions were revealed for example the Hogwarts Express which will connect Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios which visitors will be able to ride and the new ride Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts which I think is an indoor roller coaster with a twist. You can read a much better article on the revelations here – What we learned from Universal’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter Diagon Alley Webcast
What I can provide though is a look at some of the official renderings that Universal supplied to us.
Apologies for the lack of posts this week, we’ve been working on a few projects that hopefully I can write about next week.
Today though I thought I’d write briefly about twitter and who I would suggest following to aid your USA experience. If you don’t know what twitter is, its a micro blogging site that allows users to broadcast their thoughts, advice and links within 140 characters. I know it sounds weird but its very popular and very useful.
Top 10 Twitter Account To Follow these are in no particular order.
@usrentacarour own twitter feed which we regularly update with tips, hints, promotions and pictures. Its also a good way to contact us even if its just for a chat.
Relax for a moment and imagine a place where you and your family can touch and swim with dolphins, wade with mysterious rays, snorkel among thousands of exotic fish, hand-feed tropical birds in a free-flight aviary and relax on pristine beaches. Well imagine no more…
The SeaWorld Parks owned Discovery Cove is this place, the boutique water park which limits the number of people that can visit to just a 1000 a day is the relaxing haven you’ve been dreaming of, and happily we can now begin to offer pricing for 2013 via our ticket only site Orlando Attraction Tickets

Happy New Year… I hope 2012 brings you much joy and happiness. A few days off has me feeling refreshed and ready for what we hope is a busy 2012.
Today’s post is about what you can expect from usrentacar.co.uk in 2012.
It’s probably about half a year late, but we are in the process of coming up with new concepts for usrentacar.co.uk. The site is still fresh and relevant compared to other car hire USA sites however we like to be at the forefront and a new design will again do that.
We are hoping for a launch in quarter 2, we are also looking to replace some of the existing functionality and the key brief is truly less is more… I’m hoping I can convince the guys that the blog could also do with a little TLC.
Last year we became the first car rental company to sign exclusive reseller deals with SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment, Universal Orlando and LEGOLAND Florida, in 2011 we tested the water slightly and learned as much as we could about this area of the industry. 2012 see’s the first year of our new start up, Orlando Attraction Tickets a site dedicated to the Orlando Theme Parks.
We are hoping for big things in 2012 for our new project and early signs have been very positive.
I have to be slightly cryptic here I’m afraid as the pen has not been officaily put to paper, but I think we are about to offer something completely new to the car rental broker industry… Will be interesting to see if we can change a culture!
I’ll keep you updated on further developments and hopefully a few sneak peak screen shots of the new design.
If there are any features you’d like brought back or you have something you’d like to see added please let us know below.

As I’m sure most of you are aware, this year we have introduced Florida Attraction Tickets to our site. These have been available during the car rental booking process or bookable over the phone via our reservations department on 0845 226 8523.
However we felt that this was limiting us to the amount of customers we could offer our services too and wasn’t the easiest experience for our customers.
If you “like” us on facebook, then you guys have known since Monday, if you’ve signed up to our newsletter then you found out Tuesday, however today we are officially happy to announce the unveiling of our new website www.orlandoattractiontickets.co.uk
As you can see and probably guess from the name, Orlando Attraction Tickets is a dedicated theme park ticket site aimed at offering customers the best tickets at the lowest prices.
