If you look at our previous comments they were about actually getting to Tampa from the UK.
Well we actually booked through Netflights and we fly from Birmingham at 6am and land at Tampa about 20.00 the same day. If you take into account the 'time difference' then it adds up to nearly 1 days travel!! OK so the airlines have changed flight details but frankly looking at the itinery we should have flown Manchester - Orlando and arrived early afternoon.
The reason for me posting this request is to ask advice on how long it might take driving from Tampa airport to Rotonda, we have booked a car through US car hire and chose Budget rental.
Would it make sense to stay first night near to the airport and set off next morning for Rotonda.as it may well be very late before we arrive at the villa we have rented. We have the villa for a month so arriving 1 day late wont cause us much pain.
Please give us some advice so that I can if necessary book a hotel asap.
