Penske Truck Rentals and Sixt offer van rentals with unlimited miles on one-way trips, as of April 2015. Budget Rent-A-Car also offers unlimited mileage for van rental at certain locations. Another option involves searching local business review or travel sites for listings and discussions about van rentals with unlimited mileage.
Renting a van with unlimited miles is a key component of lowering costs during long-distance rentals. Unlimited miles in this case means that the rental company doesn't charge the driver a separate fee for the mileage added to the van in addition to the base rental fee and charges for insurance and gas. Many companies, such as Penske Truck Rentals, include information about mileage charges on their websites, though it is always best for drivers to call the rental company and ask about policies to be sure.
If a company offers unlimited miles on a one-way trip, it means that the van must be returned to a different location rather than to the same location from which it was rented. If a driver needs to drive a van a long distance to one location and then drive back to the starting location, she should make two separate van rentals to take advantage of this program.
