Hi

I have to tell some people that their car hire is unlimited mileage. But they are asking from countries that use kilometers.

Can I say "unlimited kilomatrage"? Sounds completely wrong. Is there any other way round this?

Thanks for your input

    I can't see why unlimited mileage wouldn't include countries that use kilometres or any other units.

    By the way, French would say kilométrage illimité (even for countries thar use miles or whatever other unit).

    I agree with the implication of Stefan's post. This piece is going to be in English and we talk about miles; as the mileage is unlimited, people aren't going to be worried about the ratio of kilometres to miles, are they? So I'm for the natural English expression unlimited mileage.
