After a year of big news stories about theme park price rises, there was a nice reminder this week of something that we probably take for granted as we drive to those amazing Orlando theme parks;  Orlando has the cheapest rental car day rates over the summer of 2013!

At just $17 a day, Orlando came in with the cheapest rate in the USA, with Fort Lauderdale and Tampa at a very respectable $18 a day to claim the runner up for the most competitive hire car rates in the nation.

Portland and New York headed the other end of the scale with day rates of $86 and $83, making Portland a whopping 5 times more costly than the very cheap Orlando rental cars!

So, the next time you pick up your rental car keys on the way to your Orlando Villa or Hotel, feel free to drive the entire journey with a smile on your faces!
