So, as far as anyone knows, we should be okay to book a towncar through Tiffany? Most of their reviews I've seen online have been quite positive, whereas many of the reviews for other companies not so much.

Has anyone had any recent experience with Tiffany? They're not close to going belly up are they? Selling off all their vehicles doesn't sound good, but if they're still okay, I think I'd rather go through them.

We're coming in to RPR from Sanford airport and don't really want to take a taxi for such a long trip. And we don't want to rent because it will be a long drive, late at night to the hotel, and then we'd have to pay for parking the whole trip when we don't really plan on leaving the resort until time to come home again.

i used them for about 4 trips and they were wonderful.
I think we use the same company. We used this company last year and really liked them. We are using them again for our trip back to the airport this year.

We've used FL Tours (fltours.com) for our last couple of trips and have been pleased with them.

Can anyone PM the name of the car service that can't be mentioned on the DIS. I am a little leery of using Tiffany if they are having problems. Used them last year for HHN and had no problems but I don't know this time around. thanks

I just checked on a new company in Orlando called Super Shuttle. I think they are quite common in other areas but fairly new to Orlando. If you go to www.supershuttle.com/entertainmentguide2013 you can book an Execucar for $50 one way to the airport. I didn't check round trip since we just need one way. That is the cheapest I have found so far.

I just called the Portofino Bay Hotel and was told that all three hotels have TOWNE CARS that will take you to the airport on departure. The fee is a flat rate of $55!!!!! You don't need to book them in advance...just go downstairs and request a car, and they will load you up and take you to the airport! I never knew the hotel had this service. I am going to cancel our car and just use the Loews Car Service. I hope this helps you!

the onsite hotels have had that for some time.
a few posters that have used them commented on the convenience of using it.

Is there anything on their website that talks about this? I couldn't find it. I'm wondering if they go to Sanford Airport or if they only go to MCO.

Thanks for posting about the town cars. We only need to go to the airport so that sounds like the best for us.

I didn't ask about that airport. But she did ask me which airport I was going to so she could quote me accurately! So that might mean they go to Sanford. I would call and ask.

We are going down to universal in a few weeks and was going to use Tiffany.

last time we were down a few months ago - We had Jack Jordan as our driver, he said he was an independent contractor through Tiffany.

Honestly he was one of the best drivers from there that we ever had! He's a nice older guy who is proud of his car, keeps it clean, is patient, arrives early and is happy to wait.

He said he was a POW and we talked on the ride back. If he is one of the 2 cars they have and he is available I will book him.

I think it's cheaper to rent a car....what about renting for one day,and returning somewhere near Universal,if you don't need it to get back to MCO?
we have a rental car for 10 days that's less than 150.00
