Automobile Rental

Enterprise Rent-A-Car and National Car Rental are our preferred vendors for automobile rentals for University-related travel. Temple University and Enterprise/National have teamed up to offer a customized rental program to all Temple University employees for both business-related and personal travel. Between Enterprise and National, there are over 9,000 offices and over 210 airport locations.

For more information or to book a car rental reservation, go online to, or contact them at 1-800-847-3722 to speak to an account representative.

Enterprise Rental: Rental prices at airport locations may vary based upon seasonal demand. As a result, Enterprise is offering Temple University employees the option of receiving the regular corporate rates, or a 10% rate discount for all reservations made from an airport location.

For all airport locations ONLY, you have the option of choosing either rate, depending upon which is the least expensive at the time. Regular corporate rates will apply for all local Philadelphia locations.

If you would like to reserve a One Way Rental, you will need to use the appropriate Corporate Account Code:

Enterprise Mileage is unlimited for all cars up to the FULL SIZE option. For anything larger than a full size car, there will be a 150 mile\day, 1050 mile/week, or 3000 mile/month limit. Going over these limits will require a surcharge of 15 cents per mile.

National Rental: National is our preferred vendor at all airport locations, but can also service Temple employees at their neighborhood sites as well. The Temple rates are accepted at all locations.
