Any individual renting a vehicle for business use should request "Personal Accident Insurance" (PAI) when renting from Enterprise. Other rental car companies may use slightly different terminology for this coverage. This option provides some coverage similar to uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage.

Under the university's contract with Enterprise, PAI will cost an additional $6.00 per day for all vehicles rented except mini-vans, pickup trucks, and sport utility vehicles. These vehicles will have an additional cost per day at local Enterprise locations. Please contact for rates. PAI will be reimbursed along with all other approved travel and rental car expenses. PAI at other locations will vary.
