Is it worth getting unlimited miles?

Unlimited mileage is a good choice for travelers who don't want to worry about watching the odometer their whole trip. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.

Tips before you leave the lot

Make sure you check a few things before you leave the car rental lot. You should take time to:

  • Walk around the car and determine if there is any dents or scrapes. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
  • 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 windshield wipers
