Car. Hire from within WDW ?

Just asked this question on Orlando Forum before I realized there is a specific Disney one .. Just wondering if anyone knows if it is possible to hire / pick up a hire car from within Disney ? When we finish our time at Disney we need to hire a car to drive to Georgia . Also wondering if anyone can recommend a reasonably priced hire company? Thanks ..

Alamo is your best bet. They are on site at the Disney Car Care Centre and from experience have never charged us state to state drop off fees.

Both Alamo and National (Alamo´s Business branch) are located at Disney´s Care Care Center, close to MK near the Hess station. They are both good, I have found that National sometimes will give slightly better prices, but that seem to be very random.

Just be sure to check very carefully (with any car rental company) because the "drop" charges can be very high, particularly to drop a car in another state.

As said we have used Alamo all over the States and have never been charged for dropping of in another nearby State. Last time picked up at Philadelphia PA airport and dropped off at Charlotte North Carolina, no charge.

Absolutely check with Alamo-they are right at Disney-but I can't imagine they would not charge a large drop off fee-they don't within the statte but when we drop off a car in another state,we have to arrnage that in advance and it costs several hundred dollars extra. The only time there is no fee is one way repositioning ;for instance,in the spring,they need cars moved from Florida to the Northeast and it is almost free to rent a car to drive north

Thanks for all of your help, we have found the price literally doubles per day dropping off in Savannah. Thinking we will just drive there in a day, and then drop the car off right away ! And just rent one for a day if we want to go further afield .

Also, there are rental agencies at many of the Downtown Disney hotels. Budget, Enterprise, and more are in these hotels. They also offer free pick-up and drop-offs to and from Disney hotels. We used Budget and had no problems. It's best to shop around.
