At Kenwood Travel, we believe in the art of escape. Which means we go way beyond just calling a cab to the airport and hopping on a plane. Kenwood holidaymakers enjoy a sense of freedom with our bespoke flight, hotel and car hire packages to Florida; no transfer times, no limits, just the open road and the independence to explore the Sunshine State on your terms. Tailor-make your Florida fly-drive itinerary and take the wheel on your own adventure, cruising through multiple destinations to make the most out of your getaway.

On fly-drive holidays to Florida you can entertain kids big and small at the Orlando theme parks, knock back the rum and eat Cubanos on Miami’s iconic boardwalk and sun yourself on the most gorgeous beaches in Clearwater. All you’d ever wish for and more on a holiday to Florida, but without the restrictions and added costs of transfers and public transport. 

The Route

The most important aspect of ensuring that your Florida fly-drive holiday kicks off seamlessly is efficient planning and a top-notch route. Kenwood Travel have got you covered with a perfect route as well as organising brilliant accommodation in every location. Begin your Florida fly-drive by flying directly to Miami for a short stay, pick up your rental car (don’t forget your driver’s licence and a credit card) and then drive through the Florida Keys down to Key West. Known as the American Caribbean, spend your days in the Keys cooling off from the Floridian sunshine with plenty of aquatic activities including dolphin encounters, fishing, scuba diving and snorkelling. Talk about kicking off your Florida holiday in style.

Naples is your next stop, branded as the finest town in Florida and the Floridian Riviera due to its picturesque views, sandy beaches and delectable restaurants. From Naples, drive down to the theme parks in Orlando where you’ll welcome thrills and spills of the highest order. When you’ve had your fill of fun, relax with a trip to the Gulf Coast, just a two-hour drive from Orlando. Clearwater and St. Pete resorts are known for their golden sands and crystal-clear waters and both beaches have won TripAdvisor awards in the Top 10 beaches in the USA.

Heading back to the east coast, stop by Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale before driving back to Miami, dropping off your rental and flying back home with blissful memories of your Florida fly-drive extravaganza.

Remember, Kenwood Travel can tailor make any fly-drive itinerary under the sun. Alternatively, why not begin your Florida holiday in Orlando, drive to Palm Beach followed by a stop-off at Key West and rounding off in Miami? Picking up your rental in Orlando and ending your journey in Miami is an absolute breeze as there is no one-way drop-fee. Kenwood Travel will also organise your accommodation at each location, ensuring your stay is as flawless and as seamless as possible.

Top Tips

It’s called the open road for a reason! Upgrade to a full-size car for comfort and ease of driving on the wide US roads. Why not spring for a 4×4 truck for that all-American experience? Or how about a convertible to feel the wind in your hair and the sun on your face?

A satellite navigation system (or a GPS as the Americans call it) is a vital piece of equipment on your road trip to ensure you don’t get lost.

Carry plenty of dollar bills with you as many roads require a few dollars payment for the tolls and most don’t accept cards or give change.

Do a little research on hotel overnight parking before you travel so there are no surprises during your Florida holiday. In Miami, there will be a charge at all hotels of around $40 dollars a night so to save money, pick up your rental at the end of your Miami trip and make use of the free trollies or simply order Uber as a way of transport.

Don’t fancy a holiday to Florida but love the idea of a fly-drive? Get in touch with the experts at Kenwood Travel with what USA fly-drive experience you have in mind and Kenwood Travel will make it happen at the drop of a hat.
