UC has negotiated rates with Hertz, Enterprise, National, Dollar, and Thrifty. The UC rates available through these car rental agencies are the same whether booking through BCD Travel, UC Travel Center, Short’s Travel, or SWABIZ.
UC policy allows for car rentals up to the intermediate level without prior authorization. Additionally, upgrades may be available if you have a loyalty membership with the agency.

You will want to make sure you have insurance coverage for any damage to the rental car, as well as to other persons and property. In many instances, you will be enrolled automatically in UC’s policy coverage, so there isn’t any need to purchase additional insurance when picking up the vehicle.
Information about UC’s rental car insurance program is available in ConnexUC in the 'Policies & Resources' section.
How to Pay
You can pay using a personal credit card, US Bank Corporate Travel Card, or cash. A detailed receipt is required for reimbursement, regardless of the dollar amount for the rental.
