rental cars & tolls

Have yet to book a hire car for my visit in October & have seen mention of a pre paid toll device, what the story with this? From what I have read no-one seems to want it, If I am going thru carhire3000 do I tell them I dont want it or at the desk when I am collecting the car? Is it only certain companies that do this? Approx how much are the tolls? will be going from mco to lake buena vista & from LBV to disney daily, thanks

Just back and no-one asked us about it at car hire (Alamo) at Sanford, the tolls vary from 75c to $2 per car and there is always a lane giving change. I was concerned about them before I went, too but they are honestly no hassle. Apparently, the toll package works out more expensive and is completely unnecessary, just another money-making scheme for car hire companies. Alamo told us they didn't have any sat navs so we had to buy one, believe me, it is ESSENTIAL if you don't know the area, so make sure you buy/book one before you go. Have a great time.

From MCO to Lake Buena Vista, there are 2 tolls on SR 528. I believe one is $1.00 and the other is $.75. There are no tolls from LBV to Disney. If you stay in the tourist areas and do not go to South Florida, the only tolls you are likely to experience are back and forth to Cocoa Beach or the Space Center. Those tolls are only $1.50 higher than going to the airport. You can google the Orlando Orange County Expressway Authority or the Turnpike Authority for more information.
