CCEL Van Usage Rates

For short-distance trips (1-50 miles roundtrip), fuel costs are covered in the rental rate. For long distance trips (51-150 miles roundtrip), organizations are responsible for their own fuel costs and a van must be returned with the gas tank at the same level it was when picked up. Multi-day trips must be accompanied by at least 2 CCEL certified drivers. CCEL vans may not be used for trips over 150 miles roundtrip* or for trips outside of the United States. Van reservation requests can be submitted through the online CCEL Van Reservation Request Form.
