    Hey Floridians!
    I am in Orlando March 2016 for a week. Hoping to rent EV ; Hertz green club offers jumble of hybrids volts leafs. So have this reserved

    Question 1
    Any ideas on Tesla rentals?
    Question 2
    Also staying at Marriot Grande Vista; seems to have 240 charger on Plugshare yet no one has checked in for years. Any idea if this is active? (Would make renting a leaf a lot easier ). I called front office they (as is often the case) have no clue about EV charging.

    thanks

    Tom

    Hi Tom,

    Relay Rides, now called Turo, rents Model Ss. Here's one in the Orlando area:

    We had a club member charge at the Marriott Grande Vista in 2013.

    Nearby is the Ritz-Carlton Grande Lakes. They have a HPWC and a J1772. If you dine at their restaurants and get your ticket validated you should be able to charge for free. There may be valet fees.

    Call the Ritz at (407) 206-2400 to verify their charging policy.

    Hello Larry
    That is great news thank you
    Great to know where I am staying has EV charging
    I see from Plugshare and prior threads that Kennedy Space Center is still without public charging
    Gotta see if I can squeeze in Falcon 9 launch....!
