Rental Car Discounts

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.

Enterprise Campus Rental Program


When traveling for IU business, IU travelers (faculty, staff and students) can charge their rental car expense to an IU account rather than personally incurring the expense to be reimbursed after the trip using the Enterprise Campus Rental program.

In addition to the reservation details, the following information must be provided on the reservation link (provided below) in order to bill the expense to an IU account:

  • The traveler's IU Employee ID number
  • Billing Number: 17113781

If personal time is involved during business travel, the traveler will need to charge the rental car expense to a personal credit card and then submit receipts to be reimbursed after their trip. The traveler will be reimbursed for the business portion of the travel expense.

Click here to schedule your Enterprise Campus Rental reservation. Using this link will charge your reservation to an IU Credit Card.

Enterprise charges that are direct billed to an IU account will appear in the traveler's eWallet within the Chrome River Travel and Expense system. Once the charge appears in the eWallet, it must be added to the traveler's expense report, submitted and approved in order to charge the expense to the department account. This can be done as soon as the charge becomes available within the eWallet or when an expense report is submitted for reimbursement.

See the tutorial video on adding the prepaid/direct billed expense onto the traveler's expense report here.
