Unlimited Mileage Car Rental Policy: Advantage Rent A Car

Advantage Rent A Car wants to meet your car rental needs, and we’d love to answer any questions you may have about our unlimited mileage car rental policy as you plan your next car rental.

If you’re new to Advantage Rent A Car, you should know that Advantage has locations at several major airports in and around the United States, including:

  • Atlanta, GA
  • Nashville, TN
  • Charlotte, NC
  • Dallas, TX
  • Las Vegas, NV
  • Orlando, FL
  • Tampa, FL
  • Miami, FL

For your convenience, you can pick your vehicle up at the airport when you land and be on your way quickly and easily. When you’re ready to head home, you can return your rental vehicle to the airport location before flying out, which is safer and more accessible than other options.

As you plan your next trip and rent your next vehicle, it is important to compare and look at all the possible rental options that apply to your situation. Simply beginning your reservation can help answer any questions you may have, and the option to change or cancel your reservation is easy with Advantage Rent A Car.

If you are planning a high mileage road trip or car rental, you may wonder what your options are when it comes to unlimited mileage. Unlimited mileage is helpful in situations when you are unsure how far you will be traveling. You may also be interested in unlimited mileage if you extend your car rental beyond the original rental period. 

Planning your trip and booking far in advance will help you avoid anything unexpected, and you can review our unlimited mileage policy to help you as well. Starting your reservation can answer a lot of questions you may have that are specific to your rental, and our flexible options mean you can plan now, book now, pay later, and change later. So, you can plan your rental with confidence.

Does Advantage offer unlimited mileage on car rentals?

Yes. You can get unlimited mileage for most car classes in the U.S. at Advantage Rent A Car. Unlimited mileage is one way to protect yourself from costs you have not planned for, and you are ready for whatever your trip requires of you.

The most common vehicle classes typically covered by unlimited mileage include:

  • Economy cars
  • Compact cars
  • Intermediate cars
  • Standard cars
  • Full-size cars
  • Compact SUVs
  • Intermediate SUVs
  • Standard SUVs
  • Minivans

These are the most common vehicle classes typically covered by unlimited mileage, are also the most common vehicle classes available. So, in essence, most car rentals will have unlimited mileage, with a few exceptions. 

It is essential to check the unlimited mileage availability for your vehicle class when you make your reservation. If you are still unsure, you are always welcome to contact us through our website or the rental location you will be using. 

Limited mileage applies to larger vehicles or specialty vehicles. Limited mileage vehicles include:

  • Large passenger vans
  • High capacity cargo vans 
  • Large SUVs
  • Exotic cars

Limited mileage vehicles have an allowable mileage limit. For every mile or kilometer over the allowable limit, there is an incremental cost of $0.10 to $0.25. This incremental cost is assessed after the rental is completed and charged accordingly.

Make a reservation to see if the vehicle class you are requesting comes with unlimited mileage. If you need a vehicle from one of the limited mileage vehicle classes, you will also be able to see the allowable mileage limit to help you assess your trip’s planned route.

Weekend Mileage Policy

Weekends are the best. We plan so much of the memorable parts of our lives on the weekends: Sporting events, getaways, site-seeing excursions, visits with family and friends, concerts, festivals, premieres, and more. 

You work all week, and you want to enjoy your weekends. When you try to fit a trip into your weekend, the last thing you want to worry about is keeping up with how many miles you’re traveling. You want to get on the road, keep the tank fueled up, and have all the fun you can before you get back to your weekday life. 

Advantage understands the importance of your weekend road trips. To make it easier, we’ve got unlimited mileage for you. Please review our unlimited mileage policy or contact your location if you have questions about what unlimited mileage means and how it applies to your rental. 

At Advantage Rent A Car, unlimited mileage will be available and offered to vehicles that are rented during the weekend, unless:

  • The rented vehicle is one of our limited mileage vehicles (as listed above, large passenger vans, high-capacity cargo vans, large SUVs,  or Exotic cars).
  • The reservation is made with another promotional offer. Promotional offers available at certain times of the year come with a promotional rate for a specified allowable mileage limit. 

If you are unsure if your rental qualifies for our unlimited mileage, please contact us with your questions or concerns.

Driving Out of State or Province in a Rental Car

There are no mileage restrictions when it comes to driving out of state or Province. This is convenient because it is common for travel in the U.S. to begin in one state and lead quickly to another state. Interstate traveling is easy in the U.S. 

At Advantage, we believe that your interstate travels should be just as easy when renting a vehicle. That is why there are no mileage restrictions for out-of-state or province travel when you rent a car through Advantage.

Limited mileage still applies to our limited mileage vehicles such as large passenger vans, high-capacity cargo vans, large SUVs, and exotic cars. Please review our unlimited mileage policy or contact your location if you have questions about unlimited mileage and your rental.

Cross-Border Travel in a Rental Car

There are no restrictions to mileage when you are driving a vehicle across the U.S. and Canadian border. For example, if you pick up your rental car in the U.S., travel to Canada during your trip, and return to the U.S., no mileage restrictions apply. 

Before you travel, familiarize yourself with the requirements for cross-border travel from the U.S. to Canada. If you are prepared for your trip across the border into Canada, Advantage Rent A Car wants you to have the best trip possible. 

Because traveling to Canada from the U.S. is not always a short trip, Advantage understands that your mileage needs may vary. That is why Advantage has no restrictions to mileage for cross-border travel. 

Limited mileage still applies to our limited mileage vehicles such as large passenger vans, high-capacity cargo vans, large SUVs, and exotic cars. Please review our unlimited mileage policy or contact your location if you have questions about unlimited mileage and your rental.

One-Way Rentals and Unlimited Mileage

One-way rentals have unlimited mileage for most car classes in the U.S. As with the standard unlimited mileage policy, exceptions apply to limited mileage vehicle classes like large passenger vans, high-capacity cargo vans, large SUVs, and exotic cars. 

Unlimited mileage is available, but one-way rental fees and daily or weekly rates associated with a one-way rental may still apply. Begin your reservation process to see if your vehicle class comes with unlimited mileage and if any additional one-way charges will apply to your car rental. 

Please review our unlimited mileage policy or contact your location if you have questions about unlimited mileage and your rental.

The Advantage of Advantage Flexibility

At Advantage, we’re committed to you. We have flexible options like our Reserve Now, Pay Later policy, and free changes to your reservations. Offering unlimited mileage on select vehicle classes for your car rentals is just one more way Advantage aims to be flexible enough to meet your car rental needs. 

Because of Advantage’s flexible options, you can book your car rental now to assess your unlimited mileage needs, pay later when you’re ready to travel, and make free changes as needed if your plans change. 

If these unprecedented times have taught us anything, you need to plan, but you also need to be open to change when needed. Life moves fast, and we hope to move fast to help you with all your car rental needs. 

We also understand that plans get canceled altogether sometimes, so in addition to our other flexible options, Advantage will help cancel your reservation for no additional fees. 

Communicate with us, and we’ll handle it! If you need to make changes, cancel your reservation, or just have questions about your reservation, please feel free to contact our support center. We’re here to help.

Call us at 1-800-777-5500 Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. And you can send a message online anytime, and we will get back to you shortly.
