As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only pay for the fuel you use.

Unlimited miles is a good choice if you plan to do some sightseeing or visit a lot of clients all over Colonia. You can drive as much as you want and not incur added charges. Make sure to read your rental agreement to find out if there are mileage restrictions.
