Preferred Car Rental and Car Service Vendors

CWRU has negotiated preferred vendor pricing with the following automobile rental and car services. These can be used for business, or as a bonus, they may be used for personal travel.

  • Enterprise Rent-A-Car and National Car Rental offer discounted business and personal rentals to university employees, students, student families, visitors, alumni and friends of CWRU. The CWRU Contract IDs for both National and Enterprise are: XZ39074 (business), XZ39075 (leisure). Please note, leisure renters using the XZ39075 contract ID are responsible for their own insurance regardless of their affiliation with the university. 
  • CWRU carshare is a membership-based, automated car-share rental program offering sustainable, efficient, and cost-effective transportation to the CWRU community. This program has been temporarily suspended due to safety concerns related to COVID-19.
