Car Rental

Important:  The State of Florida has contracted with Enterprise Holding, Inc., the parent company of Enterprise Rent-A-Car and National Car Rental, to provide vehicle rental services effective September 30, 2015.  The Avis State contract rates are not valid for rentals starting after September 29, 2015.

Travelers should use the State of Florida Enterprise/ National contract, when reserving vehicles.  If there is a justifiable business reason to rent a vehicle from another vendor, the traveler should purchase collision and comprehensive coverage insurance from the vendor.  They should not purchase liability coverage as the University is self-insured.

The University will only reimburse for the rental of compact size vehicles unless justification is provided detailing the necessity for a larger vehicle.  An upgrade to a larger vehicle based on individual size or stature is the responsibility of the traveler unless required for ADA purposes.  Rental of GPS units are reimbursable when necessary for conducting official University business.

The University’s Travel Card is the preferred method of payment.
