At, we encourage a full to full policy. You should get your vehicle with a full tank, and you will want to return it with a full tank. To avoid any added expenses, fill up your tank before you return the car to National. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Most suppliers provide unlimited miles, but you want to ensure it's part of the package. It's helpful to know how much you want to drive so you can plan your trip in advance. Although most car rental companies offer unlimited mileage, if it isn't part of your package, those miles can pile up—and so can the extra cost. You may want unlimited miles if you are thinking of taking some road trips to find out all that Indianapolis has to offer, or even the U.S. of A.
