Enterprise & National Car Rental Airport Program

Middlebury College is a member of the E&I Purchasing Group. Enterprise Rent-A-Car and National Car Rental are the preferred rental car suppliers for E&I Purchasing Group members. Middlebury’s membership in the E&I Purchasing group allows us to consolidate spending, simplify program management, and reduce our annual car rental expenditures.  Rentals with the E&I contract with Enterprise and National means that all insurance is included in the rental rate. This program is for airport rentals and does not affect the Middlebury local rental program with Enterprise.

The program with Enterprise and National provides you with special recognition, service, and speed, whether renting at an airport or in the local market where you live and work. National provides speed and consistency for our most frequent airport travelers through the Emerald Club. Enterprise has locations in local markets across the country, including here in Middlebury and in Monterey.

  • Bypass the counter and choose your own car – Bypass the rental counter and go directly to the Emerald Club Aisle® at more than 50 major airports in the U.S. and Canada.  On the Emerald Club Aisle, choose your own car from a selection of mid-size and larger vehicles, and pay the reserved mid-size rate.
  • E-receipts for faster returns – There’s no need to wait around for a piece of paper when you return your car. Sign up to receive this benefit and we will automatically email your receipts to you within 24 hours of each returned rental.
  • Choose your rewards – Earn rental credits towards a Free Rental Day with every seven rental credits earned. Or choose to automatically receive frequent flyer miles for each day rented (average of 50 frequent flyer miles per rental day – amount varies by airline).
  • As an additional convenience, Emerald Club members may reserve at Enterprise Rent A Car locations where National is not available, using their Emerald Club number allowing for the contracted rates and certain profile data availability at the Enterprise counter.  NOTE:  The above benefits do not apply to Enterprise rentals.
