Save On Car Rentals


Travelers during the recent U.S. economic downturn saw significant declines in hotel room rates and a slight softening of airfares in most major markets. Renting a car was a different matter. Rental agencies pushed up pricing by as much as 30 percent. Industry consolidation and shrinking fleets fueled the increase.

New agreements now give CWRU faculty and staff improved car rental savings and convenience. Use CWRU contract codes at both Enterprise Rent-a-Car® and National Car Rental® to get competitive mid-week and discounted weekend rates. A recent check of weekly rates in the Phoenix market saw University contract pricing save a minimum of $120 over non-contract pricing.

Enterprise Rent-a-Car provides convenient neighborhood locations across Cleveland, as well as in other major cities and airports. National Rental Car offers its award-winning Emerald Club® service where you can bypass the rental counter and choose your vehicle. CWRU frequent travelers may also be eligible for Emerald Club status upgrades. Contact Travel Services for more details.
