Unlike its competitors, U-Haul doesn’t offer a student discount. Budget Truck Rental and Penske give students a small percentage off truck rentals. Keep in mind, you’ll want to get a few estimates to make sure you’re getting the best deal and service. For more information on U-Haul’s discount policy and how to save on moving trucks, see below.
U-Haul Student Discount Policy
U-Haul does not offer a student discount, according to U-Haul customer service representatives in Colorado, Georgia, Kansas, Montana, and Texas. The U-Haul Discounts and Specials page on the company’s website doesn’t mention a student discount, so we called several locations and asked; all said they do not have a student discount.
U-Haul’s competitors, Budget Truck Rental and Penske, do offer student discounts. Budget Truck Rental’s student discount is good for 20% off of in-town moves or 15% off of one-way moves. Penske gives students 10% off all truck rentals and offers unlimited mileage.
Keep in mind, it’s always a good idea to get quotes from several companies before making a truck reservation or buying supplies. Even without a student discount, U-Haul may be the most affordable or favorable option, depending on where you’re moving and what equipment you need.
For ways to save on your next U-Haul, check the Discounts and Specials page. Online deals are regularly updated. As of press time, you could get one free month of storage with your equipment rental, a free towing inspection, and special rates for select rentals.
