Reservation Process

To set up a rental reservation online, go to, enter the location, date, time and our corporate account number and click "Continue" to search for available vehicles. Choose the car class that’s preferred.  The next screen will be the Extra's screen, click on "Continue to review" button. On the next screen, put in the renter’s name, phone and email address.  Underneath that, it will ask you to confirm if this is a business rental, click "yes". It will then ask you if you are authorized and choosing to bill MassArt for this rental.  Click “no”. Purchasing is the only department that can authorize Enterprise to bill the college. We will contact Enterprise directly to have our corporate billing number added to any rentals for which we receive completed purchase requisitions. Alternatively, renters with a college p-card can pay by card and simply must present the card when picking up the rental. On the next screen, click on “Reserve Now” to complete the reservation. 

Once you have placed the reservation either by phone or online, the renter will need to give their name, confirmation number from the reservation, and present a valid driver’s license when picking up the vehicle. If paying by p-card you will need the card at this time. If using a purchase requisition the renter will NOT need a personal credit card in order to complete this transaction.
