We usually recommend that customers opt for the full-to-full policy. This policy simply means you bring your rental back to the full, and you're all set.

Unlimited miles is a good option if you plan to do some sightseeing or visit several customers all over Dixie. You can drive as much as you want without incurring added charges. Read over your rental agreement to discover if there are mileage limitations.
Know before you go
Make sure you check a few things before you leave the lot. You should:
- Inspect your car and determine if there is any dents or scrapes. If you notice any, write it down on your paperwork
- Check the trunk to see if the spare is inflated and the jack and lung wrench are there
- Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Get comfortable working the entertainment and GPS (if available). You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
