Enterprise Rent-A-Car is responding to the nation’s escalating COVID-19 pandemic by taking steps to help members of the U.S. Military and U.S. government along with college students with their travel needs.

This week, the rental car company announced it is reducing the minimum age to rent from 21 to 18 for all members of the military and U.S. government employees renting for personal needs through May 31, 2020. A valid military or government ID must be presented at the time of rental.

Last week, Enterprise responded with help for college students. The company announced that in order to help university students get home, it would be waiving its young renter fee and, as with this week’s action, would also reduce its minimum age to rent a vehicle from 21 to 18 years old. The change is effective now through the end of May at all U.S. locations. Enterprise made the move as colleges and universities all announced campus closures in response to coronavirus (COVID-19) concerns. In order to be eligible, college students ages 18 to 24 will need to provide a valid driver's license and official student ID card.

"We want to do whatever we can to make this unprecedented situation easier for students and their families," said Will Withington, Senior Vice President, North American Operations for Enterprise Holdings, which owns and operates Enterprise Rent-A-Car. "With an Enterprise Rent-A-Car location within 15 miles of 90% of the U.S. population, we're in range of nearly every college campus in the country and able to help students get wherever they need to go."
