Renting a Car for MITOC Trips
Renting a car through MIT
Sorry, but independent trips with MITOC gear don’t qualify for car rental discounts.
- offers a discounted rental rate
- waives the requirement that the renter be at least 25
- provides insurance coverage against both liability and physical damage
Make sure to decline liability and collision/physical damage coverage when reserving or picking up the vehicle.
Note: MIT affiliates may also receive discounts for "personal/leisure" trips when renting through Avis and Budget. See the links above for more details. MITOC cannot reimburse for "personal" travel.
If using a car sharing service such as Zipcar, be aware that the mileage included in the hourly/daily rate is often less than the round-trip distance to and from out-of-state trailheads frequently visited by MITOC, which may result in additional charges.
