When renting a midsize SUV, it is common (especially during peak holiday times or in the summer) that they will have a no show policy. You will be required to give your credit card information upon reservation. Make sure to check any cancellation policies to find out how far in advance you can cancel in order to avoid or lessen cancellation or no show fees.

It is also common for SUVs to have mileage restrictions. You can always try contacting a car rental company directly (try their toll free reservation line) and seeing if an employee can offer more miles or an unlimted mileage rate option for you.

SUVs are one of the most popular types of rental vehicles... and also one of the most limited car rental fleet items. It's always best to book as far in advance as possible in order to guarantee such a high demand vehicle.

Note: In general categories, car rental companies can rarely guarantee a make or model. That’s why you’ll usually see a make/model example with a notation of …or similar. That means you will get either that vehicle or something of similar size and with similar features.
