Unlimited miles is a good option if you decide to do a little sightseeing or visit several business associates all over Independence. You can cruise wherever you like without incurring added charges. Review your policy to find out if there are mileage restrictions.

Before you leave the lot

Make sure you check a few items before you leave the lot. You should take time to:

  • Inspect the vehicle and determine if there is any damage or scratches. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
  • Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
  • Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
  • Figure out how to work the entertainment and GPS (if available). You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
