Question Rental Car Return and Airline Check In Orlando

My understanding is that one can check in for their flight right there in the car rental return garage at level R1 after dropping off your car. You don't have to go into the departure terminal to check in. Has anyone done this and where exactly is the location of the check in? Will be flying out American domestic.Cannot find anywhere on line that can give me this information.

Thanks..

The counter is located on the first level of the parking garage in the rental car area. After you drop off your car, go to Level R1 if you are not there already. Head toward the terminal. Don't cross the road into the terminal. The drop-off is located to the left of the Alamo booth on R1. It is small and not well marked. It serves most major airlines.

They collect up baggage for all flights and then truck it over to the terminal and drop it off, so they stop accepting for a particular flight about an hour and a half before the scheduled takeoff. I have used them several times with no problem. Went from there directly to security. From dropping off the car to the gate should take you less than half an hour if you have Precheck.

Also, a reminder to make sure you avoid the RIPOFF gas stations on South Semoran when you fill your rental car up before return the car: MCO Gas Station RIPOFF.
