We usually recommend that you choose 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 great choice if you decide to do a little sightseeing or visit a lot of clients all over Lyndhurst. You can cruise wherever you like and not incur extra charges. Go over your rental agreement to find out if there are mileage restrictions.
Before you leave the lot
Make sure you check out a few things prior to leaving the car rental lot. You should:

- Inspect the trunk to see if the spare is properly inflated and both the lug wrench and jack are there
