Whatever your reason for hitting the road, you might want to consider renting a car. At Enterprise, we make it easier for you and your family to rent a vehicle. Read below why a rental car may be the best bet for your next trip, and reserve your rental today.

Top Reasons to Rent a Car


No wear and tear on your personal vehicle

A long road trip can be hard on your vehicle and can lead to future repairs. A rental is an easy and convenient alternative to using your personal car – especially if you don't think your car is reliable enough for a road trip! Our vehicles are meticulously maintained so no matter where your travels may take you, we can help get you there safely.


Save money on unplanned expenses

Enterprise offers protection products​ that can cover you and your vehicle in the event of an accident. From collision damage waivers to roadside assistance protection, you can drive with peace of mind knowing we’ll help cover expenses in case of an accident.


Test drive a new vehicle

Take a ride on the wild side – literally. Renting a car for your next road trip gives you the opportunity to try out a vehicle that's different from your own car.


Control your environment


Don't conform to any schedule but your own. With a rental car from Enterprise, you can go at your own pace instead of following rigid arrival or departure times. You also have more control over your environment in a rental car, unlike with public transportation where you're only able to control your group’s actions, not your surroundings. 


Find the right car for your trip

Does your trip need all-wheel drive? Or maybe you need more seating or cargo space? Pick a vehicle that suits all the needs of your trip – not just some. At Enterprise, we have different vehicles available for all your rental needs. We have vehicles with great gas mileage and comfy seats to keep your family on the road for longer. We also have rental cars with plenty of cargo space to haul camping equipment or hiking gear. We even have minivans and large SUVS to accommodate larger family groups.
