10 Twitter Accounts To Follow For Your Florida Holiday

Hi all,

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.

  1. @usrentacar  our 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.
  2. @WaltDisneyWorld The official Twitter feed for the Walt Disney World Resort.
  3. @UniversalORL The official twitter account Universal Orlando Resort!
  4. @BuschGardens The official Busch Gardens Tampa Bay Twitter account.
  5. @orlando_tix For lots of info, tips, news and reviews on the worlds most popular theme parks and attractions visit our blog @ attraction-tickets.info
  6. @SeaWorld The official SeaWorld parks Twitter account. Follow for the latest updates and photos from all three SeaWorld parks
  7. @LEGOLANDFlorida This is the OFFICIAL Twitter for LEGOLAND Florida – a 150-acre interactive theme park dedicated to families with children between the ages of 2 and 12.
  8. @orlandosentinel The Orlando Sentinel is the most comprehensive news source of the Central Florida region.
  9. @VisitOrlando Official Twitter page for Visit Orlando with info about attractions, hotels, restaurants, shopping, deals, special events and more
  10. @discoveramerica Tweets on travel to the United States of America, from Brand USA, the official travel & tourism organization of the USA.

All these accounts have provided me with additional knowledge of Florida and in some cases the USA as a while.

Are there any twitter account you would recommend?

The Car Rental Show In Tweets

Hi all,

The annual Car Rental Show hosted in Las Vegas has just finished, for those of you unfamiliar with The Car Rental Show (CRS), it offers the opportunity for the industry to come together and learn from each other and help provide a closer working relationship between the usually segregated industry.

Unfortunately like you, I was unable to attend this year event, however I was able to follow parts of it via twitter, so I thought I’d show below some of the more interesting tweets I noticed.

Ful Cygler says Florida is best market for newest vehicles#carrentalshow

NB: Our own statistic’s support this as well, with California a close second.

At the marketing table: everyone here agrees that Google is the most important search engine to b aware of #carrentalshow

NB: Not exactly ground breaking news, perhaps show’s how behind car rental is.

more dealers are going to enter the market, Kushner says#carrentalshow

NB: Great for the consumer, at present approximately 4 car rental suppliers own the market, more competitors = better rates.

Chris Brown: It’s not about the rental car, its about the car rental process #carrentalshow

NB: Customer services is your best USP?

Mark Frissora, Hertz CEO: “customers are smarter than they ever have been” #carrentalshow

NB: Suggesting that customers were stupid before ;-)

Frissora says int’l travel is expected to double to $2T in 2020#carrentalshow

NB: $2 trillion!!! Wowsers…

He says that off-airport rental is a fast-growing source for leisure and business rentals #carrentalshow

NB: I believe this aimed at U.S. travellers not European

Technology is ‘Putting the power of companies in the hands of consumers’ – Mark Frissora Hertz #carrentalshow

NB: Positive or a negative?

Freeman: “we’ve only skimmed the surface of what this industry can do.” #carrentalshow

NB: Very true.

Barton: “be a fire prevention officer not a fire fighter” #carrentalshow

NB: Interesting buzz phrase.

Schalberg: keep the rental car counter free of clutter, separate back office papers from front counter papers #carrentalshow


46% of Facebook users say their travel destination was affected by what their Facebook community says #carrentalshow

NB: Does this ring true to you?

Some interesting things coming out of The Car Rental Show, although for me I’m still amazed at how slow the car rental industry moves to adopt new technology.

What do you think?

Our Car Hire USA Twitter account

Hi all,

This is more information than an actual blog, however our much under utilised twitter account @usrentacar has now been taken off my hands, and mostly due to the fact I’ve slightly neglected it.

The good news though is our own Kelly Morris has now taken this under her wing, so hopefully, (and this wont be hard) she’ll do a much better job than I did.

Is there anything in particular you would like Kelly to tweet about, apart from special offers etc?

I have not abandoned twitter altogether though you can still follow me on twitter @gavinboswell.
