A Refresher On What You Need For Your Florida Car Hire

Hi all,

For most readers of this blog you already know what’s required for yourflorida car hire 
Florida Car Hire
 but some this may be your first experience of renting a car in Florida. So I thought I’d put together a little post on what you should be looking for and accept from your Florida Car Hire.


Florida offers the most diverse amount of car rental suppliers of all the USA States due to it’s popularity with tourists. On usrentacar.co.uk we offer car rental with

  1. Alamo Rent A Car
  2. Budget Rent A C ar
  3. Dollar Rent A Car
  4. National Car Rental
  5. Thrifty Car Rental
  6. Sixt Rent A Car

The first 5 companies listed above  make up the top 3 USA car hire companies in North America. Enterprise who are number 1 own both Alamo and National, Avis own Budget Rent A Car and Hertz have recently purchased Dollar and Thrifty.

Sixt Rent A Car are the new boys on the block who are looking to offer something different to the market, including some great higher end prestige vehicles.


All car hire brokers independently negotiate with the car rental suppliers, so insurance exclusions can vary. Here at U.S. Rent A Car we offer the following,

  • Unlimited Mileage.
  • Loss Damage Waiver (LDW) which is a combination insurance of both Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Waiver. As long as you adhere to the rental policy of the supplier you will not be held responsible for the cost of replacement or repair to your hire vehicle.
  • Uninsured Motorist Protection (UMP) up to $1m Liability Cover. Offers an Uninsured/Underinsured/Hit-and-Run Motorist Protection (UMP) that provides the renter and family members travelling together in the rented vehicle with up to $1,000,000 of non-stacked coverage for bodily injury sustained while driving the rental car, and caused by another driver who has no insurance, minimal insurance, or is a hit-and-run driver.
  • Supplemental Liability Insurance (SLI) up to $1m Liability Cover. All drivers included on the rental agreement will not be held liable for third party claims for bodily injury or property damage resulting from an accident.
  • Basic Roadside Assistance
  • All Taxes and Airport Fees.

Our Gold rate extends the insurance to multiple drivers and includes your first tank of fuel.

We also offer our exclusive Platinum package which extends the insurance further via our 3rd party supplier to cover the following

Reimbursement for any physical loss or damage to the Rental Vehicle for which You are responsible under the terms of the Vehicle Rental Agreement, including: (Total section limit: GBP 2,000.00)

  • Physical damage to windscreens, tyres, and undercarriage.
  • Towing costs relating to the loss or damage.

If unintentionally locked out of the Rental Vehicle.

  • Our supplier will pay up to GBP 100.00 to open the Rental Vehicle.

Pay to replace a lost or stolen Rental Vehicle key, including replacement locks and locksmith.

  • charges up to a maximum of GBP 300.00 for each and every claim.

Young Drivers (under 25)

We also offer great deals for drivers under 25, generally each supplier will charge approx. $25 per day per driver plus tax to extend the insurance to younger drivers.

We’ve managed to negotiate our own Young driver package which not only pre-pays these charges but actually makes them more cost effective.


We cover all major airports including Orlando International Airport, Miami International Airport and Tampa International Airport but it doesn’t just end there. We can offer car rental collection from the Disney area, cruise ports and city locations.

Our handy location finder can help you pick the location that’s best for you.

What I’ll need to collect the vehicle

To collect your car rental you will need;

  1. Your usrentacar.co.uk car rental voucher, which you can print from your account.
  2. Your full driving licence, both parts.
  3. A credit card in the name of the lead driver for the security deposit.

Things to remember

  1. The main one is to remember you are fully covered, the guys and girls on the desk at all the car rental companies work on commission  so they may offer you additional extras. Some of these extras can be useful, for example the toll pass can save you money and time if you’re going to be doing a lot of driving through toll roads or the manager may have an upgrade special offer on, for  that Ford Mustang you’ve always wanted… remember though none of the extra’s offered if refused will stop you from collecting your vehicle.

I think that about covers it without turning it in to a novel…
