1. Review rental guidelines.

The Enterprise Truck Rental Program is available to all UC affiliates, and includes the following vehicle types:

  • Light and medium duty trucks
  • Cargo vans, box trucks and flatbeds
  • Heavy duty pickup trucks with towing

View the University of California rate sheet.

Discounts and insurance are included. Note that the truck rental program is for organizational use only, no student or personal use is allowable.

If a traveler is unfamiliar with the location of travel, an expense for hand-held or uninstalled GPS may be eligible for reimbursement. This must be documented in the Notes field on the Ground Tab in MyTravel.

To contain expenses, return the rental vehicle with specified amount of gas in the tank so that refueling by the agency is not required. If necessary, an expense for refueling may be eligible for reimbursement when using a rental agency with a UC agreement. Not to exceed $1.50 per gallon plus the location’s average retail gas price per gallon at the time of rental.

2. Make pre-travel arrangements.

  1. Preauthorize the travel event using MyTravel.
  2. Apply for a UC San Diego Travel Card, if you don't currently have one.

Enterprise commercial truck rentals booked as a UC rental will include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) insurance and $1-million Combined Single Limit (CSL) liability insurance.
