Option #3 – Zip Car rental – Private company located at PLU. These cars can be rented by the hour or for a full day. See the Zip Car website for more information ~ http://www.zipcar.com/plu
Things to consider about the rental options:
Depending on the distance you will be traveling and the number of passengers in your party a particular option may save you money.
For trips exceeding 140 miles round trip the PLU Vans are not the cheapest route. Budget or Zip Car would be better options.
It is the responsibility of the renter to refuel the vehicles. Both PLU and Budget Rental vehicles should be returned full of fuel to avoid additional charges. Users may purchase fuel with a PLU Corporate Credit Card provided by their university department or by using a personal credit/debit card. Reimbursements for gas purchases on a personal card can be done via the Business Office and require an itemized receipt.
The Facilities Management gas pump cannot be used for refueling of PLU vans or Budget Rental vehicles.
