Ryder Cargo Van Rental: Unlimited Mileage? Answered

Ryder’s cargo van rentals don’t come with unlimited miles, the company’s customer service department confirmed. Ryder charges about $0.20 to $0.80 per mile on its cargo van rentals, and the per-mile charge is on top of the daily or weekly rental fee. Ryder quotes your total price before you rent based on the number of miles you plan to drive. You can reserve a Ryder cargo van online — you’ll need two forms of ID, a credit card for the rental deposit, and proof of sufficient insurance coverage.

Ryder only offers roundtrip rentals, so you must pick up and drop off the vehicle at the same location. If you need a one-way rental, we list the places that offer this (and some come with unlimited mileage).

Where to Rent Cargo Vans With Unlimited Mileage — Our Recommendations

Though Ryder doesn’t offer unlimited miles on its cargo van rentals, there are other equipment rental companies that do. If you’re looking to get the best possible prices and service, you will likely want to rent through Budget Truck Rental or Avis (which partners with Budget to offer cargo van rentals). Both of these companies have nationwide locations, and they typically allow both one-way and roundtrip cargo van rentals with unlimited miles. Budget offers discounted prices, and Avis comes with the reputation of exceptional customer service.
