Why Choose Unlimited Mileage with a Car Rental?
Use our special filter to find car hire deals with unlimited mileage
When it comes to deciding between Limited or Unlimited Mileage, much will come down to what your travel plans are.
If you are taking a road trip then a deal that allows you to drive any number of miles without penalty is likely to be your better option. When you are hiring a car to drive you and your family from the airport to your resort and back but the remainder of the week the car will be parked up, then a car hire deal with limited miles could be the cheaper choice.
What is the difference between Limited and Unlimited Mileage deals?
Limited Mileage - You are given a daily mileage allowance. Bear in mind, though, these are totaled over the length of the hire. As an example, an allowance of 100km per day for one week would be a week's allowance of 700km. If you drove 10km for 6 days, you could effectively drive 500km on the seventh day without exceeding your limit. If you do go over your limit then you will be charged for every mile/kilometre that you exceeded it by. This can result in a fairly hefty bill when you return the car. When comparing car hire packages Limited Mileage deals tend to be cheaper than Unlimited so if you stick to under the limit you could save.
Unlimited Mileage - With these packages there are no restrictions to the number of miles you can drive - a great option if you are going to be exploring the local area or visiting other towns or cities. Unlimited Mileage packages are usually slightly more costly when booking but almost certainly cheaper than exceeding a set mileage limit by a long way! Without a cap on your distance, unlimited mileage car hire can make your holiday a little less stressful and give you the opportunity to be more spontaneous with your plans.
