Can I drive my rental car outside the United States?
While your rental car may come with unlimited mileage, the rental car company that is providing the car may have restrictions about driving your rental car into another country. If you plan on taking your rental car outside the U.S., we suggest you ask at the rental counter about the company policy prior to driving off the rental car lot. This includes inquiries regarding driving into Canada and Mexico or outside the state.
