Unlimited mileage is a good option for anyone who don't want to worry about incurring any extra charges with the distance they drive. Just make sure that your policy really provides unlimited miles. Read the details on mileage limits before you book.

Tips before you leave the lot

Before you get started on your Hamilton adventure, check a few things before you leave the rental lot. It's important to:

  • Check the trunk to determine if the spare is inflated and the necessary tools to change it are there
  • Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and wipers
  • Figure out how to work the navigation and entertainment. It's best to limit any unneeded distractions when you are navigating a new city
