Most commonly free mileage is included. But small local companies may have other conditions. Check the terms and conditions to make sure free mileage is included in the rental price. If free mileage is not included, check that you have enough mileage in the contract.
Are you more than one who will be driving the car?
If more than one person is going to be driving you must state that when booking or to the company on arrival.
