In order to secure your rental car, travelers must present a state-issued travel card or a personal credit card for payment. Departmental P-cards may not be used for rental cars. Rental car expenses will be reimbursed through the travel reimbursement voucher process.

Direct billing of rental vehicles is allowed through Enterprise Holdings. Beginning March 1, 2012, rental vehicles (other than 12-passenger and 15-passenger vans) may be reserved through the Enterprise Holdings Online Reservation System accessed through the ESS module in SAP. To direct bill a 12-passenger or 15-passenger van, please contact the State of Texas Contract Management Team at (866) 398-5080. Please notify the Travel Office when the reservation is complete.
No purchase orders will be issued after March 1, 2012, for direct billings. Remember, a travel request or travel application must be approved and entered in order to utilize the Enterprise Holdings Online Reservation System.
When you rent a vehicle from Avis, or Enterprise under the State of Texas contract, the rental rate includes two kinds of insurance:
LDW (Loss/Damage Waiver or comprehensive), which covers all damage to the rental vehicle if it was rented under the state contract; and
Liability, which covers persons and property outside the rental vehicle. The amount of this extended liability insurance is $100,000 bodily injury per person, $300,000 bodily injury per occurrence; and $50,000 property damage per occurrence, for a total of $350,000 per accident.
Proof of insurance is located in the glove compartment or on the windshield of all contract rental cars. In the event you need to provide proof of insurance, show the above "proof of insurance" document.
Liability insurance supplement, Personal Accident insurance, Safe Trip insurance, or Personal Effects insurance are not reimbursable.
Insurance may not be included in promotional rates other than state contract rates.
Rentals paid with a personal or state-issued travel card will be assessed a motor vehicle tax. This is reimbursable as an incidental expense. When possible, travelers can provide a Motor Vehicle Rental Exemption Certificate when renting a vehicle to obtain an exemption. Rentals direct billed to Texas State are automatically exempt.
