Avis and Budget Rental Car Contract ***Additional Information***

Using State funds??

  • It is recommended to utilize the State rental car contracts (Enterprise/National and Hertz).
  • Additional documentation/information will be required on State funds when Avis and Budget are used.
  • Traveler may only receive a partial reimbursement when using Avis or Budget on State funds. If the State rental car contract rates are lower the lower rate will be the rate that is reimbursed.
  • The traveler may experience a delay in reimbursement.

**REMINDER** DO NOT accept the Pre-Paid option when Avis representatives offers. This will void the contract pricing and could cause the traveler to pay out of pocket expenses.

Please contact if you have questions.
