Planning Your Orlando Holiday Without a Car

Orlando Without a Car: Exploring the Orlando with Ease

Orlando is a vast and wonderful city, and while we recommend including a car as part of your Orlando Holiday package for convenience, there are options for those who prefer not to drive. At Charter Travel, we're here to guide you on where to stay on your 2024 / 2025 Orlando Holiday without a car, ensuring a hassle-free and magical experience.

International Drive: The Heart of Orlando

International Drive (I-Drive): International Drive is the main hub of dining, entertainment and hotels in Orlando. You'll find a selection of resorts for all budgets offering proximity to attractions like Pointe Orlando and Icon Park. Plus, Universal Orlando and SeaWorld are just a short drive away. I-Drive also provides the convenient I-RIDE Trolley, offering access to nearby attractions, making it an ideal choice for those who prefer not to drive. Many of the hotels on International Drive also offer free transportation to the theme parks to help you get around Orlando, some of these include:

  • The Rosen Inn at Pointe Orlando offers a free shuttle to and from Universal Orlando Resort.*
  • CoCo Key Resort offers a free shuttle service to Universal Orlando and Walt Disney World (selected times).*
  • DoubleTree by Hilton Orlando at SeaWorld offer included transportation to SeaWorld, Aquatica and Discovery Cove, plus a reduced fee for transportation to Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando Resort.*
  • Homewood Suites by Hilton offers a fee-based shuttle service to Universal Orlando, Walt Disney World and SeaWorld theme parks.*

Walt Disney World Resort: Staying Close to the Magic

Staying on Disney Property: The Walt Disney World Resort offers various accommodation options, each with its unique charm. By staying on the Disney resort property, you will enjoy free transportation* to and from the Disney theme parks, as well as access to the convenient monorail and Disney Skyliner. Some Disney Deluxe Resorts, like BoardWalk Inn, are even within walking distance of theme parks such as EPCOT. For a full breakdown of all the resorts, why not speak to one of our experienced Travel Advisors, or visit our Walt Disney World page. Here are a few examples of different Disney Resort hotels on offer for your Orlando Holiday in 2024 / 2025:

  • Value Resorts — best for budget-conscious visitors: Disney's Pop Century Resort and Disney's All-Star Movies Resort.
  • Moderate Resorts — best for those wanting dining options with reasonable pricing: Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside and Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort.
  • Deluxe Resorts — best for immersive theming and proximity to Disney Resorts: Disney's BoardWalk Inn and Disney's Beach Club Resort.

Universal Orlando Resort: Thrills and Comfort

Staying at Universal Orlando Resort: Universal Orlando Resort offers a variety of fantastic options for your 2024 Orlando Holiday to suit all budgets. All of the Universal Orlando Resorts provide free transportation* to and from Universal's CityWalk, and some offer convenient walking paths to nearby theme parks. For example, from the Hard Rock Hotel, you can stroll directly into CityWalk, and from Cabana Bay, you can walk to Universal's Volcano Bay. For more information on all the Universal Resorts, why not speak to one of our experienced Travel Advisors, or visit our Universal Orlando Resort page. Here are 3 examples of the Universal hotels on offer for your Orlando Holiday in 2024 / 2025:

  • Endless Summer Resort: Surfside Inn and Suites — Budget Friendly! 
  • Cabana Bay Beach Resort — Ideal location, perfect for families. 
  • Hard Rock Hotel — Walkable to City Walk and offers luxury amenities. 

Considerations for Public Transport

Please note that public transport options like buses and trains in Orlando do not operate in the same way as they do in the UK, and they are not as reliable for getting around the city. You can use car service options like Uber in Orlando, or book a pre-arranged transfer. 

Our Strongest Recommendation

While there are transportation alternatives in Orlando, they may not be as efficient or cost-effective as having your car. Ultimately, we recommend hiring a car from Orlando or Tampa airport, a service that you can conveniently book as part of your Orlando holiday package with Charter Travel. Having a car provides you with the freedom to explore at your pace, ensuring you make the most of your Orlando adventure. Though, we completely understand that not all Orlando visitors will want to hire a car and our Orlando Holiday Travel Experts can recommend hotels close to attractions you want to enjoy in Orlando that offer shuttles and transportation to and from the iconic theme parks. 

At Charter Travel, we're dedicated to creating the perfect Orlando experience tailored to your preferences — car or no car! Contact us today, and let's plan your dream Orlando Holiday for 2024 / 2025!
