Car Rentals

NYU negotiated rates, which include loss damage waiver and liability insurance in the rates.

The insurance included in the rates is unique only to North American rentals.  If you are utilizing the NYU rates for a rental overseas, please contact the Global Travel Team for more information on insurance.

Rates should only be used for NYU related travel, as the insurance that is built-in will not apply to incidents that occur on personal trips.
