Enterprise Student Discount Policy

Enterprise Rent-A-Car offers a student discount in partnership with some colleges and universities, customer service representatives said. If your school is an Enterprise partner, there will be a specific discount code you can enter when making a reservation.

Enterprise doesn’t provide a public list of its partners. To find out if your school has a student discount code, contact student services. If your school isn’t partnered with Enterprise, it may be partnered with another rental car company, like Avis or Hertz.

At most locations, Enterprise’s minimum rental age is 21. Michigan and New York have a minimum rental age of 18. You may see a “Young Renter Fee” applied to your reservation if you are under 24.
