In an effort to maintain a high level of service while positively impacting our overall costs, Abilene Christian University completed a thorough review of our car rental programs. We are pleased to announce Enterprise Rent-A-Car and National Car Rental as the preferred rental car suppliers for Abilene Christian University. This partnership allows us to consolidate spend, simplify program management and significantly reduce our annual car rental expenditures.
Enterprise is ACU's preferred rental car vendor. Enterprise offers exceptional rates with a high level of service and convenience. This service is not just for ACU business. Discounts are also available for faculty, staff, alumni and student use. Since our pricing is based on overall volume, campus wide participation is necessary to achieve the maximum discount from this program. We encourage all departments to utilize this amazing program.
ACU’s rental policy requires the purchase of insurance coverage when renting a vehicle. Enterprise has streamlined this process by including the $10.00 insurance fee to the rental rate on both Enterprise and National Car Rental car rentals, making it easier to book rentals. View ACU's rental car insurance policy. It will appear as though the rates have increased; however the price increase is only a reflection of the insurance cost which was added separately in the past. Be aware that when you are signing the rental contract at the location you will be initialing “decline” outside of the rental insurance section. This indicates you will not be authorizing additional insurance to the insurance already included in the rental rate. Some important things to remember: it is very important that you always use ACU Customer Account Number. When booking a rental with Enterprise, you must use the link located on the Quicklinks within myACU. Please contact University Purchasing by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 674-2246 if you have questions.
