The University of Colorado Boulder Campus has determined that it is more efficient to partner with professional rental car firms to provide local car rental services. Effective September 30, 2015 the vehicle rental service transitioned to local car rental partners. When a department needs to rent a sedan, SUV or van, these vehicles are provided by our rental car partners – Avis and Hertz under the terms and conditions of the State of Colorado Price Agreement.
The two rental car partners offer pickup/drop off, 24 hour roadside service and unlimited mileage for all rentals. 18-25 year old drivers are allowed to rent as long as it is used for official university business. The University of Colorado requires drivers under 25 years old to complete the Defensive Drivers course offered on-line at My CU/Training/Skillsoft: Search CU: Defensive Driving.
