Motor Vehicle Rental Information

The Inter-University Council of Ohio Purchasing Group and the State of Ohio Department of Administrative Services have entered into a master vehicle rental contract with Enterprise Rent-a-Car.  This contract applies to Miami Univeristy.

Under this program, authorized customers will be able to rent vehicles at a guaranteed daily rate through a website or by telephone.  Rentals include unlimited mileage and all insurance.  University employees may also enroll in the “Emerald Club” at no charge.

Enterprise will allow authorized drivers age 18 and over.  There is no additional charge for young drivers, nor is there a charge for additional drivers in each vehicle.  Student drivers of vehicles capable of carrying more than 6 people must complete an on-line driver training course.  Contact the Environmental Health and Safety Office at 529-2829 to enroll student drivers.  Use of rental vehicles by Student Organizations are subject to specific vehicle policies.

Fuel is not included in the rental rate.  Drivers should either purchase fuel using a Miami purchasing card or use cash/personal credit card and submit a travel reimbursement request to Accounts Payable.

Reservations for rentals by employees may be made at the website below.  Payment must be made by Miami Purchasing Card (MasterCard) issued in the name of the renter or by personal credit card subject to reimbursement.

Student organizations must make reservations in person at Accounts Payable (107 Roudebush Hall).

This contract applies to vehicles rented locally and throughout the United States.  In addition, the contract includes rental of vehicles from National Car Rental outlets at major airports.  

 

Recent media reports indicate that car rental agencies are continuing to rent cars, at least on a case by case basis, despite the fact that the car may be the subject of a safety recall.  Renters are strongly encouraged to check for safety recalls at http://www.odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/cars/problems/recalls/recallsearch.cfm or to "google" the make, model and year of the offered rental car to check for outstanding safety recalls.  If there is a safety recall on the car and the car rental agency will not provide proof of repair, you should ask for another car that does not ahve an outstanding safety recall.

 

 

Personal Use Rentals for Employees Miami employees may rent vehicles from Enterprise and receive the same rates as those for official use.  Note that personal rentals DO NOT include insurance and are subject to additional fees for drivers under age 25.  Click here to go to the Enterprise web page to reserve vehicles under this program.
