ST. LOUIS, March 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Enterprise Rent-A-Car today announced, in order to help university students get home, the business is waiving its young renter fee and reducing its minimum age to rent a vehicle from 21 to 18 years old. The change is effective now through the end of May at all locations in the United States.
With colleges and universities all over the United States announcing campus closures in response to coronavirus (COVID-19) concerns, many students may need last-minute transportation. By reducing the age minimum and waiving the young renter fee, more students can access rental cars.
"We want to do whatever we can to make this unprecedented situation easier for students and their families," said Will Withington, Senior Vice President, North American Operations for Enterprise Holdings, which owns and operates Enterprise Rent-A-Car. "With an Enterprise Rent-A-Car location within 15 miles of 90% of the U.S. population, we're in range of nearly every college campus in the country and able to help students get wherever they need to go."
