Your ultimate guide to renting a van with unlimited mileage

Drive unlimited miles in a Greenvans rental van

Planning an epic road trip and don’t want to have sticker shock at the price of a rental van? For those covering a lot of ground, an unlimited mileage policy might be right for you. In this post, we’ll cover everything you need to know about 15-passenger van rental unlimited mileage packages so you won’t spend more than you want to.

Unlimited mileage: What does it mean?

Unlimited mileage means you can drive as many miles as you want without incurring extra fees. For example, if you’reThose planning to drive to Miami from Boston or New York or families hitting the road for a cross-country adventure will benefit from unlimited mileage with their rental van.

Many rental companies put a limit on miles per day. This is in an effort to control the heavy wear and tear that extensive drives can have on a vehicle. For each additional mile driven over the provided limit, there will be a charge. 

Greenvans includes 300 miles per day with our 15-passenger van rentals. That’s approximately the distance from our office in Providence to our office outside Philadelphia. Each mile over the 300-mile limit costs $0.39. 

If an allowance of 300 miles isn’t enough, you can opt to upgrade to an unlimited mileage package. When booking online, you’ll have the option to choose unlimited mileage as an add-on if you’re renting a van for 10 days or less. Similarly, if you’re renting by phone, your friendly customer service rep will offer you the option to purchase the add-on.

Benefits of renting a van with unlimited mileage

If the word “limited” gives you the chills, perhaps an unlimited mileage package is worth the investment. Here are a few benefits to lifting the restriction on miles:

Flexibility with unlimited mileage

Experience the true freedom that comes on an open road with no finish line. Skip the overnight that would otherwise be required on a drive from Boston to Washington, D.C., and opt for a lunch break in Princeton instead. Navigate the Eastern seaboard without the stress of per-mile charges and unexpected fees.

Unplanned itineraries

One of the highlights of a road trip is the unknown. You never know what you might stumble upon behind the wheel! Give yourself the opportunity to take that unexpected detour to explore an unfamiliar place that wasn’t on the original itinerary. Sudden craving for crabs? Unlimited miles means that on your way south, you can stop in Baltimore for a seafood feast without tacking on unwanted fees.

Potential for savings

Traveling in a single van might be more economical than using multiple cars for two reasons: gas and parking. 

  • Gas: Filling up one tank isn’t just less costly in terms of dollars, it also saves you time. Who wants to wait around at the gas station until all the cars in your caravan have filled their tanks? Greenvans 15-passenger rental vans are known for their fuel-efficiency, holding 25 gallons of gas and boasting 19 miles per gallon, excellent stats for a vehicle of this size.
  • Parking: Parking is another cost consideration. Finding a place for everyone to park is hassle enough, so why pay multiple parking meters to top it off? With one 15-passenger van rental, there is only one vehicle to park, and one parking fee to pay.

Planning a family trip to Miami? Driving to a concert in Nashville? Is your church youth group going to summer camp in a neighboring state? Now, you can detour to different sites along the way with no limits on your miles.

Industries that require frequent travel

If you’re a musician, photographer, or event planner who needs to travel frequently between venues, give yourself a buffer with unlimited mileage.

Moving houses
