Rental Rates & Mileage

The rental rates with which you are presented upon making a reservation could vary depending on the rental company's mileage criteria.  For example, you could be presented with one of the following:

  • a daily rate with a mileage charge
  • a daily rate with a limited number of free miles per day
  • a daily rate with unlimited mileage
  • a rate that has free mileage over an extended period of time

Hourly Rates:
Some companies will rent on an hourly basis. Independent local companies are normally more relaxed about these types of short-term rentals.

Daily Rates:
Are you planning to use the car for 2 or 3 days? Then getting a daily rate could be your best option.

Weekly Rates:
Weekly rates are best for when you want to rent for 6 days or more.
