On occasion, Cornell staff members need to attend conferences, off-site meetings, business visits, and other travel that requires the use of a vehicle or charter transportation. For this purpose, the university has established pricing agreements with the following suppliers for the rental of passenger vehicles. All corporate pricing includes collision and liability insurances as required byfor all vehicle rentals. The agreements are also available for personal use with applicable sales taxes added.
Note: The collision and liability insurance coverage applies only to Cornell business travel. When using the Cornell discount for personal travel, you are responsible for purchasing insurance as the Cornell collision and liability insurance does not cover personal travel.
Cornell has negotiated rates for hybrid vehicles with our rental suppliers, and Cornell Fleet Services has hybrid cars available for rental. Rule of thumb is that business travel that exceeds 100 miles should incorporate renting a car versus using your own car. Insurance is included in the rate. For insurance coverage on international vehicle rentals, please check eligibility with the Cornell University contract administrator. Certain countries are excluded from contract coverage.
