Going from Miami to Orlando by rental car, the most comfortable option if you are making a route through Florida

If you are making a route through the Florida Peninsula on your own as we did, the option of renting a car in Miami may be the most comfortable way to go to Orlando from Miami. In addition, the journey will not take you more than 3h30 and you will even be able to make some intermediate stops.
Of course, it is important to know that the hotel parking both at Disney and Universal are expensive, as is parking at the parks ($25 on average), so if you only want to rent a car to go from Miami to the parks from Orlando, this would not be the cheapest option.

In addition, if you opt for a rental car, it is also important to consider that you can take different roads, the fastest being the one known as Florida’s Turnpike, a very comfortable toll road, which also has all the services.
Keep in mind that currently, many of the tolls are electronic, so it may be highly recommended to take the SunPass at the time you pick up your rental car. This is a prepaid toll program in Florida that, in addition to benefiting from lower prices, also has exclusive lanes and faster bridges. Although depending on the rental company it may have one price or another, initially it is about $10.49 per rental day with a weekly maximum of $52.49 (Dollar Company).

Plane from Miami airport to Orlando

This could be another way to go to Orlando from Miami, although we would only choose it if you link the flight with the arrival at the Miami airport since between the flight time, billing and then going to the cities, the investment, price and time , we believe that it does not compensate.

However, in case you want to connect both flights, it can be interesting since there are several companies that have direct flights from Miami to Orlando for less than $100. We recommend you check the pages of Spirit, American Airlines and Delta to see the frequencies (there are many throughout the day) and prices. Once at the airport you can go to the city by public transport or by hiring this private transfer service if you don’t want to worry about a thing.
