Another question that we receive intensely is if, when renting a car in orlando, it is worth renting the GPS together.

It is a very normal practice, even on online rental sites they recommend renting the GPS at the end for a very attractive price.

And of course, we always recommend that your car rental be done on a trusted website. For those who like to solve everything online, we recommend the rent cars because in addition to being extremely reliable, you can compare prices between major rental companies and make the best car reservation for you and your group!

But if you are one of those people who prefer a personalized service, we recommend that you make your quote with our partner rental agency clicking here!

Many people, due to convenience and sometimes fear, usually select this GPS rental option along with their car, but is this really the best option?

Is it worth it to rent GPS in Orlando?

Simple and direct answer as we like to make our posts, not worth it!

I'll give a brief explanation of why we think that and how we came to that conclusion.

Come on, starting from the principle that you have this doubt if is it worth renting the GPS, you probably don't know the roads and streets of Orlando or just want that extra bit of security so you don't have to stop and ask for directions.

Without any problem, I myself like to use a GPS (not the rental company) even for routes that I am used to taking, in case there is a problem or work in a certain part of the route and I am forced to leave the traditional route.

I will assume that the question of is it worth renting a gps in orlando be exclusively financial, if your doubt is another, please let us know in the comments.

GPS ease of use

Another reason we don't recommend this option is the ability to use GPS.

If you've ever used a GPS in your life, you know how easy they are to use.

And if by any chance you've never used it, imagine having such an unpleasant surprise in the first few minutes of your trip?

On the other hand, the Waze and Google Maps, even if you have never used it, you can test it from home to familiarize yourself with the application before arriving at Orlando airport.

But it's no use just saying it's not worth it, right?

In addition to the reasons for ease, there is the question of value too!

Therefore, I will give here 2 better options than renting the GPS at the video store.

The first one may not have an immediate return and cost you a few dollars more right then and there which is:

Buy your GPS instead of renting

I bet you're thinking I'm crazy, right?

What happens, electronics in the United States are famous among Brazilians
for their prices far below what we are used to.

To give you a reference, we can find a great GPS on amazon by U$55.

At best buy this same gps was selling for $79.99.

And being in the United States you have several stores where you can find a GPS for an excellent value in addition to those mentioned above.

Although almost always, prices are better in the amazon.

Okay, you might be thinking: “But Carlos, I'm not saving anything, on the contrary, I'm spending the same thing or a little more”.

You are correct, your statement is 100% true for THIS TRIP! But what if 2, 3 years from now you return to the US?

Or decide to meet disney from Paris and enjoy getting to know France?

You'll have good news, the only thing you'll need to do is go online and download the maps of your gps updated for free.

And ready, in 2 trips your gps already paid.

Obviously, this option has the risk that, as it is an electronic device, it will not last a lifetime, and is more valid for people who travel frequently.

If that's not the case for you, let's move on to the next and better* option.

Buy a cell phone CHIP and Use Waze (or any other gps app) – recommended option

Rent GPS in Orlando

The reason why we recommend this solution is not only because you will spend less but also because you will need internet throughout your day to day travel.

A cell phone chip for a 15-day trip will only cost you: U$40 ( with our discount coupon  )

And as we mentioned above, this will not only give you the gps for your trip, but it will give you a very high quality internet connection during the entire trip.

It is true that in hotels and parks you have free wi-fi, but in the parks we can say that it is not the best connections and with the chip you won't even worry if another place you are going to visit has wifi, because you will have unlimited internet all the time.

It is worth mentioning that several plans from some operators offer a few days of free roaming, so you don't spend anything for a few days.

We hope that we have given you some good options for those who were in doubt. whether to rent gps in orlando and if there are any questions left, send it to us here on the questions or on our social networks.
