As long as you replace the fuel before returning the car, you won't face any extra fees||You only refill the amount of fuel that you've used. Used a half of a tank? Simply fill it back up to full.

Unlimited mileage is a good choice for travelers who don't want to worry about watching the odometer their whole trip. Just make sure that your policy really provides unlimited miles. Read the fine print before you book.
Know before you go
Make sure you check a few things before you leave the rental lot. It's important to:
- Inspect your car and determine if there is any dents or scrapes. If you notice any, write it down on your paperwork
- Inspect the trunk to determine if the spare is properly inflated and the jack and lung wrench are there
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Get comfortable operating the entertainment and GPS (if available). It's best to limit any unnecessary distractions when you are driving around a new city
