Rental Vehicles

Members of the Cornell University community may rent a passenger vehicle from an external rental agency.  When you rent a passenger vehicle, there are several types of insurance to consider, as detailed in University Policy 3.2 – University Travel.  The renter should verify they have the following as part of the rental agreement:

  • Collision or Loss Damage Waiver (CDW or LDW) This insurance protects you against damage that may happen to the vehicle you have rented.
  • Liability Insurance  (LI). This insurance protects you and the University against claims made by third parties for property damage (other vehicles) and/or personal injury.

Both CDW and LI are included when renting under a University Preferred Supplier Agreement.  Information on preferred Rental Car companies can be found here: Rental Vehicles. CU Net ID is required

  • Note: Please make sure to use the business travel code when making a reservation.
