Can we save you money on your park tickets & / or car hire ?

If you are considering a trip to Florida two of your largest potential bills, (apart from air-fares - discussed on our  F.A.Q. page), will be for car hire and theme park tickets.
Although you can buy both whilst in Florida, you will almost certainly pay more than if you buy before your holiday when you at least have the facility to compare prices unpressured by any salesperson!
We recommend these links: CAR HIRE & THEME PARK TICKETS as being reputable vendors at reasonable cost.... We don't get any commission from these, but do gain "villa points" which puts our villa nearer the top of the "Orlando Villas" website...
Please hunt around for better deals, but we would appreciate it if you could buy through our links!! 

This new link lets you see a video of each car type available: CAR TYPES - Should give you a much better idea of what's out there....

  New bit: Normally, car hire is limited to over 25's unless a very expensive premium is paid. Our car supplier has a new contract with Alamo which allows one under-25 driver for 25 per week...  

Be very aware that if you decide to upgrade your hire car at the airport, you will be charged a LOT extra...(and we do mean A LOT... +100% is not unusual !) - That friendly clerk pressuring you to buy all those unnecessary extras is on commission !!.
Car hire sold as part of a flydrive package will normally NOT include insurances - which are actually the biggest expense of car rental.
Although some ticket booths in Florida do offer genuine cheap park tickets, they are normally tied to very hard-sell condominium 'visits' (used to be time-share)...
(Yes, first visit to Florida, we got 'caught' & were bored out of our brains for 4 hours....)
We have links to all the major theme parks on our other website: SMIFFS.NET.
All the parks sell their own tickets & sometimes have "special offers"...... 


PLEASE don't get fleeced by roadside vendors in Florida selling "part used" multi-day park tickets. Even if there are days remaining unused on these, ALL tickets are fingerprint matched to their owners on first use and are likely to be rejected at the park gates when used by someone else !!!
The parks are also rejecting stolen tickets being sold on EBay.....

At best you'll loose money, at worst get arrested....
