Did you know Universal partners with companies to provide discounts and offers to their customers? In this article, we will cover little-known discounts and offers for guests who use Avis, Budget, or American Express.
Avis & Budget Rental Car
Customers of Avis and Budget Rental Car have access to three unique offers.
Upgraded Parking – If you rent a car from Avis or Budget at Orlando International Airport, ask for a free voucher to Prime Parking. Only valid once per voucher, upgrades from regular parking only. Not valid with other offers or at resorts.
Discounted Theme Park Combo Tickets – Buy 1-day, 2-park tickets with Unlimited Universal Express Pass starting at $262.99 per adult, plus tax. We do not recommend this discount; the price on the Universal site for both tickets starts at $264.99, just $2 more. Instead, we advise purchasing tickets through Undercover Tourist or a travel agent.
Terms and conditions apply. See the Avis & Budget Offers page for the latest information.
Universal Orlando’s Official Card is American Express and cardholders receive special perks and discounts for being a customer.
10% Off Universal Dining Plan – Cardholders receive 10% off a purchase of a Quick Service Dining Plan with Coke Freestyle Mug when purchasing with your American Express Card.
Rotating Merchandise Discounts – Universal offers several merchandise discounts throughout the year, at the time of writing guests can purchase discounted on-ride photos and backpacks with valid purchases.
Hotel Perks – Booking through American Express’s travel page can rack up some sweet perks at Universal resorts such as early check-in, late check-out, room upgrades, dining credits, free meals, and more. Visit American Express’s travel site and search for Loews Hotels or Universal Orlando Hotels for featured hotels and offers.
American Express Lounge – The best perk of being a cardholder is the American Express Lounge at Universal Studios Florida. Located across from the Ye Olde Souvenir Shop next to Shrek, the lounge offers concierge services, snacks, drinks, and most importantly: air conditioning. The lounge is available to all guests who purchase tickets through Universal Orlando using their American Express card. Hours are 12:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. daily, with a limit of 6 guests per cardholder.
All American Express offers are for Credit and Charge Cardholders, gift cards and single-use cards are not valid. Terms and conditions apply. See the American Express Offers page for the latest information.
