MIT has two preferred car rental vendors--Budget and Avis.
These rental car companies can be used for official Institute business and also for personal travel (however, be sure to use the correct corporate ID numbers which can be found on Supplier Search). Travelers using rental cars for domestic official institute business travel should not purchase any optional insurance coverage such as loss, collision, personal accident or liability. If so, the expense will be deducted from the travel expense report, regardless of whether a preferred rental car company is used. The MIT preferred companies have included the cost of insurance in their rates, therefore, should a traveler get into an accident, MIT will be fully covered. The rental insurance should, however, be purchased for international rentals or rentals in Alaska.
Please note: MIT’s insurance will only cover travelers who rent a car for MIT business. MIT’s insurance does not extend to personal travel.
