Rental Car Insurance

Clemson University has a rental contract with Enterprise Rental to provide vehicles while they are being used for Clemson University business. The contract includes liability insurance and collision deductible waiver. Therefore, the employee does not need to purchase any additional insurance from Enterprise.

The Clemson University Automobile Liability Insurance Policy provides excess physical damage insurance on automobiles leased, hired, rented or borrowed when they are being used for Clemson University business. The University's policy has a $200 deductible and pays in excess of other valid and collectible insurance.

If the employee has valid and collectible insurance under his/her personal automobile insurance, the rental agency will always file with that coverage first. In this case, the University's liability insurance is excess over the employee's coverage. If the employee does not have rental car coverage under his personal automobile insurance, the University's insurance becomes primary.
