  • Wow! That’s a great discount! I’ll take the compact, then.

  • Good choice. May I see your driver’s license and a credit card, please?

  • There are no extra charges for that. Where will you return the car in Boston?

  • At the Boston airport.

  • Very good, Mr. Patterson. Youre all set. Have a safe trip.

  • Oh! What about the mileage?

  • There is no extra charge for miles, but you must return the car with a full tank of gas, or else theyll charge you for that.
