In an effort to maintain a high level of service while positively impacting our overall costs, Clemson University recently completed a thorough review of our car rental programs. We are pleased to announce that we have once again partnered with National Car Rental and Enterprise Rent-A-Car and they will continue to be the preferred rental car suppliers for Clemson University. This partnership allows us to consolidate spend, simplify program management, and significantly reduce our annual car rental expenditures. Through your feedback from the survey we have made some enhancements to the current program. Enhancements to Current program: **Clemson University Rentals Only**
- Online Reservations to make rental reservations.
- Mileage Calculator to help decide the most cost effective way of traveling by automobile.
- Enterprise FAQ to get assistance on your frequently asked questions.
- Direct Billing Program to set up direct billing for your department for In State Travel ONLY.
Before Hour Pick-Ups — Cars can be rented from the Enterprise office before operating hours Reservations should be made directly with the location so the appropriate arrangements can be made.
After Hour Drop-Offs — Cars can be returned after normal business hours. Please let the Enterprise Representative know when the reservation is made and/or picked up. Keys should be left in the drop box and the pink copy should be left in the car stating what time the vehicle was returned.
Fuel — It is requested by the university that all vehicles go out on a full tank and are returned; with a full tank. Gas will be charged at pump price if returned with less than a full tank, but it is strongly encouraged to replenish the fuel that is used.
Faculty/Staff Business Rental — As faculty and staff you do have the option to utilize the Clemson pump and receive a cheaper price than if charged pump price. In order to use the option a form MUST be completed and given to Enterprise at time of drop off (or left with vehicle if dropped off after hours). *Note this does not apply to individual students, student groups, or any other vendors. This option is only available to Staff that has the ability to be billed for the fuel and is for a valid business rental.
Our program with National and Enterprise provides you with special recognition, service and speed whether renting at an airport or in the local market where you live and work. National provides speed and consistency for our most frequent airport travelers through the Emerald Club. Enterprise provides the custom attention and service needed for local market rentals while also serving the needs of airport travelers. To clarify, you do NOT have to use Enterprise/National when traveling out of State (i.e. at your destination airport) but they do offer discounted rates to Clemson if you choose to use them.
