How to calculate your free mileage when renting a car

In most countries there are free mileages (unlimited mileages) and there are no limitations to the number of kilometers you can cover during your rental period.

In small and less known nations it is extremely unusual to find a rental vehicle with limited mileage. Auto rental with limited mileage are popular in bigger countries like United States, Spain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy and United Kingdom.

Generally, just the luxury and premium car models are with limited mileage, yet now and again all rental classes of vehicles can be found with a set free allocation of kilometers incorporated into the rate – and everything over that limit to be charged moreover.
