The University requires that you obtain the least expensive practical vehicle. Please remember to refuel your rental car prior to its return and save the gas receipts for reimbursement. Refueling rates charged by the rental agency are extremely expensive. One way or drop off charges can be reimbursed but since these add significantly to travel costs they should be avoided whenever possible.
