Many suppliers provide unlimited miles, but you need to ensure it's part of your bundle that you are purchasing. It's helpful to know how much you want to drive so you can plan your trip in advance. Although most rental car providers offer unlimited mileage, if it isn't part of your rental agreement, those miles can pile up—and so can the extra cost.
