Unlike many other major tourist destinations around the world Orlando, Florida is not easy to visit without a car hire. Luckily, with the availability of an Orlando 7 seater car rental and a few driving tips for the area you and your family can enjoy a fun vacation in the theme park capital of the world.
Don't drink and drive while in Orlando, or anywhere else in the United States. U.S. drunk driving laws are strictly enforced and tourist destinations are heavily patrolled. Getting caught can land you in jail for the night or worse.
Automatic transmissions are far more common in rental cars in Orlando than other countries. Even if you have never driven one they take no time at all to get used to. Just remember to only drive with one foot (your right).
It is not illegal in the U.S. to overtake on the 'inside', and you will find many drivers passing on both the right and left. Just be careful that you are not driving too far over on the right side of your lane, as many UK drivers have this habit in the U.S. It is also helpful to be very familiar with all the possible blind spots in your car hire with seven seats, especially if it is larger than the vehicle you regularly drive.
It is acceptable to turn right against the traffic signal when the coast is clear. This means that at a traffic light you can make a right hand turn during a red light once all the cars coming from the opposite direction have completed their left turns, and the traffic from the intersecting road is clear as well. Orlando drivers will be very used to this, and if you do not proceed to turn right on red when the coast is clear they will honk their horns at you!
