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 mileage is a good choice for travelers who don't want to worry about incurring any extra charges with the distance they drive. Just make sure that your policy really provides unlimited miles. Check the details on mileage limits before you book.
Before you drive off
Be sure you go over a few items prior to leaving the lot. You should:
- Walk around your car and determine if there is any damage or scrapes. If so, mark it down on the paperwork
- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
- Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and wipers
- Figure out how to work the navigation and entertainment. It's best to limit any unnecessary distractions when you are driving around a new city
