    To make a reservation, call the State of FL Reservations & Customer Service at 1-877-690-0064 and
    reference Account Number 43A3255. Or, visit one of the following sites to begin your reservation: Enterprise/National UF Business Rentals
    Personal Rentals at Enterprise
  • Availability of Vehicles for Rentals
    Some of UF’s travelers have experienced a lack of available cars when trying to rent through Enterprise/National when the rental is made close to the desired pick up time. UF and Enterprise/National are working together in an attempt to minimize these occurrences.When renting a vehicle from Enterprise/National, the preferred method to setup a reservation is to book the reservation through UF’s rental website (link below) 24 hours in advance of the required pickup time. If a reservation is made 24 hours prior to the time needed, a rental vehicle is guaranteed. You will be placed in a vehicle at the State of Florida rate that your reserved even if a higher class vehicle is provided to you.If a reservation is made online with less than a 24 hour lead time, Enterprise/National will contact you and make you aware of the availability of vehicles and attempt to find a vehicle for you but a vehicle will not be guaranteed. If a vehicle is available, you may be placed in another size vehicle and be required to pay the State contract rate for that vehicle. Renters that made a reservation 24 hours or more in advance will receive priority.UF’s online reservation page does not show vehicle availability. For rentals up through a full size, the website will allow you to make a reservation even if cars are not available locally. Adhering to the 24-hour lead time method will guarantee a vehicle will be available for you.
  • Enterprise Billing Account
    You will need to establish an Enterprise Billing Account if you have the need to rent vehicles for other travelers but charge the rental costs to a UF PCard. Complete the Enterprise Electronic Billing Agreement form. Email the form to the contact information at the bottom of the form (stateoffloridabrse@ehi.com and Charles.W.Crosby@ehi.com) An Enterprise representative will contact you to complete the process and establish your billing account.
  • Items that are charged using the Enterprise Billing Account will receive two invoices per month.
  • Enterprise/National Pricing List
    Pricing and age information is available here.
  • Emerald Club portal
    All UF travelers who make reservations for vehicle rentals should establish an Emerald Club account. The Emerald Club program can be used by Enterprise to track rental spend for the University. It will also make setting up reservations and picking up/dropping off vehicles much less of a burden. Please contact Brett Wallen (bwallen@ufl.edu) or Randy Staples (rstaple@ufl.edu) for the link to join the Emerald Club program.
  • Toll Payment Options
    Enterprise/National offer a toll payment solution. They utilize the PlatePass program for tolls in the State of Florida. There will be a $3.95 convenience charge per day of use not to exceed $19.75 on any given one rental (Florida); this does not include tolls. Example: Travel to Orlando for 5 days and have tolls on 2 travel days. The charge will be $7.90 plus the cost of the tolls. If you do not want to use this service, you have two other options:
    1. Go through and pay at the toll booth and you will not be billed by PlatePass.
    2. If you have a personal transponder in your vehicle, you will not be billed by PlatePass.
    You can print receipts for any PlatePass charges at the following websites:
