Mileage limit on "unlimited" rental?

Hertz refugee with a relatively simple question but couldn't find the results via search.

Due to COVID need to drive ~1250 miles each way (2500 r/t plus local driving at destination, likely will stay under 3k miles total for rental period) over the course of 11 days (pick up Friday, return a week+ later Monday).

Am I at risk of getting put on the DNR list? I know with Hertz this would be on the edge (approx 3k miles/month is their limit). Maybe things are different now that airline schedules are drastically reduced, etc.

National Executive via Amex Plat if that matters at all.

Thanks in advance

Have done a number of 1,000 mile 3 day rentals with no issues across these 3 brands, return the car clean, and all will be fine; no issues at all.

Beware of Enterprise off airport locations and mileage charges. Always check the contract. ALWAYS get a print out of the contract.

Also find a different contract ID to use for National than that AmEx code- it increases the rates above the normal Emerald Club Members conract ID.
