Lease Vehicles Originating from CU Boulder for Official Use

The University of Colorado Boulder Campus determined that it is more efficient to partner with professional rental car firms to provide local car rental services. 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/Budget, Enterprise and Hertz under the terms and conditions of the State of Colorado Price Agreement.

The three rental car partners offer pickup/drop off, 24 hour roadside service (roadside assistance is not provided by the university) 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.
