New! Expanded Rental Car Options

Due to the COVID-19 challenges impacting rental car companies, rental car availability is at an all-time low. Current chip shortages and high demand mean rental companies are finding it difficult to replace their inventory.

To assist our faculty and staff, Procurement and University Travel Services have established contracts with Enterprise/National and Hertz rental cars. Rate sheets for both suppliers can be found on the F&A Travel website at https://www.fa.ufl.edu/directives/rental-vehicles/. The rate sheets include information about coverage options, pricing and a link to a site for University of Florida Rentals. Please reserve cars as far in advance as possible to increase your chances of having a rental vehicle available!

Key points to note about the Enterprise/National and Hertz contracts:

  • Both contracts contain equivalent insurance to the AVIS contract, with full Coverage and Limited Liability Protection
  • Enterprise will provide truck rentals that are not currently available with AVIS
  • Under the new contracts, personal rentals are allowed for both companies
    • Hertz at contract prices
    • Enterprise/National at 5% discount off retail rate

Employees are encouraged to continue to use AVIS as the state contract vendor whenever possible. However, use of either Enterprise/National or Hertz will not require justification when AVIS cannot be used due to availability, accessibility or the need for a type of rental not offered by AVIS.

If you have any questions, please contact Travel at travel@ufl.edu.
