What type of fuel policy should I choose?

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

Is it worth getting unlimited miles?

Unlimited miles is a good option if you plan to do a bit of sightseeing or visit a lot of customers all over Lake Mills. You can cruise as much as you want and not incur added charges. Read over your policy to see if there are any limitations.

Know before you go

Before you get started on your Lake Mills adventure, make sure you go over a few things before you leave the lot. It's important to:

  • Inspect the car and make sure there is no dents or scrapes. If you notice any, mark it down on your paperwork
