Need a car rental at Orlando International Airport? The theme park capital of the world is famous as the gateway to popular tourist attractions such as Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando Resort, and an easy road trip to popular Florida destinations like Tampa and St. Petersburg.

Orlando International Airport has a main passenger terminal made up of two distinct sides: A and B. Both international and domestic carriers are located on each end, so make sure to check the airport map before your flight. After landing and exiting your arrival gate, you’ll take a quick monorail shuttle to the arrivals and baggage areas.

The great thing about Orlando’s airport is that there are many options to rent a car right inside the terminal without waiting for a bus to a far-flung lot. Ten major rental car companies have offices inside the passenger terminal and there are another 20 companies with off-airport locations accessible via shuttle bus.
