Car sharing is a membership based program where, once you join, you can rent a vehicle 24/7. Cars are parked at a dedicated spot in a lot close to where you live and work. Members can rent a vehicle for an hour, a day, or overnight.
There’s an annual membership fee and one-time application fee. Rates vary by city, location and time. Check your program page for more information.
Cars are parked in designated spots on the street or in a lot, close to where you live and work. Locations vary by city. See your program page for more information.
Car sharing is the perfect complement for your on-the-go lifestyle. We know you could use a variety of public transportation options such as taking the train, the bus, walking, or biking. But, sometimes you need a car. Vehicles are parked in designated spots for 24/7 access.
It’s easy to get started! First, review our member eligibility policy carefully:
International Drivers’ Licenses Accepted! If you have a qualified driver’s license from another country and/or an international permit, you’ll just need to show it to a local Enterprise CarShare representative. (We’ll contact you with further instructions upon application.)
Then, choose a car sharing program near you and fill out the online application.
Once your membership has been approved, you’ll receive an email confirmation. We’ll mail you a membership card and welcome brochure with your member ID number—you’ll need this to log in and reserve. Please note it may take up to 7-10 business days to receive your membership materials.

Once your membership is approved, you should receive your membership materials in the mail within 5-7 business days (depending on your geographic location). When the card arrives, you’ll be on your way!
The approval process is simple and we work to get you on the road as soon as we can. Please allow up to ten days for the entire approval process and for the arrival of your member card. If you need to drive sooner, we may be able to accommodate your request in certain markets where we have a storefront. Contact us for more information.
If you’re a student between 18 – 20 years old, at most of our University programs, or where required by law, you can join. Please check out your program page for more details.
Yes. Check our program locations page to see if your company or school is already an Enterprise CarShare member. If we’re not on your campus yet and you are a decision maker, you can request information to start a program online by submitting an RFP.
Go mobile with our Enterprise CarShare app. We’ve built a one-stop shop for all of your on-the-go CarShare needs, accessible directly from your mobile device.
Once you log-in to the app, you’ll enjoy the following:
- Automatic geolocation to find vehicles closest to you

Reserve and use 24/7 with an hour minimum, with as little notice as you like. You’ll receive a confirmation email with details and directions to the vehicle.
We have an assortment of vehicles ranging in class from Economy to Luxury, with availability varying by location. Cargo vans for hauling are available in most major cities. To see what vehicles are available in your neighborhood, visit your program page.
Reservations can be as short as one hour. Maximum reservation length is typically seven days, but can vary based on your program. If you need a car longer than seven days, give us a call and we’ll do our best to accommodate your driving needs.
To maximize availability for all members, we ask for at least three hours’ notice when canceling your reserved time. If you cancel with less than three hours’ notice, you will be billed for the first three hours of your reservation, or the cost of your reservation, whichever is less. If you do not cancel your reservation and do not drive, you will be billed for the full estimated cost of your reservation.
Yes. Please refer to the Terms and Conditions on your program page for restrictions.

Unlock & Go
When you arrive at your reserved vehicle, place your membership card over the sensor on the driver’s side windshield until you hear the doors unlock. The keys will be inside in the vehicle or with the valet. Now you're ready to roll!
Unlocking the vehicle may differ depending on your program and location. Please visit your program page for exact details.
Some of our vehicles are located in valet lots or garages. As a general rule, show up a few minutes early to ensure you can get your vehicle on time, in case there is a wait. Specific information about your reserved car and associated valet locations, including addresses and phone numbers, can be found in your reservation confirmation email.
Before heading to pick up a vehicle, it’s important to check your online account to ensure your reservation has been booked properly and review your confirmation email, which will include details about your reserved vehicle and location. If you get to the Enterprise CarShare parking area and your car is not there, call us and we will assist you by locating the vehicle or switching your reservation to another available vehicle.
Only you or another driver approved on your Enterprise CarShare account can drive the vehicle during your reservation.
Fuel is included! One of the responsibilities of membership is to refill the gas tank when it drops to ¼ full during your car sharing period. The car can be refueled at any one of 160,000 gas stations that display the Wright Express logo. Be sure to return the fuel card to the same place you found it after you've filled the tank. Failure to return the vehicle with a minimum ¼ tank of fuel or a lost fuel card could result in a fee.
When you pull into a gas station, retrieve the fuel card and swipe the card like you would any credit card at the pump. When prompted, enter the vehicle mileage from the odometer and your unique 6-digit fuel PIN. Fill the tank with regular unleaded gasoline and then return the fuel card where you found it. Review member policies on your program page for more details.
Pets are required to be crated at all times while in the vehicle. (Service animals used by members or passengers with disabilities are allowed in the vehicle without a carrier.) Please return the vehicle free of pet hair. Pet hair on the seats may result in a cleaning fee.
No—there is a fine for smoking in our vehicles.
Members are responsible for picking up trash and taking personal belongings upon exiting the vehicle. If you find the vehicle in less than acceptable condition at the start of your reservation, call Member Services immediately to avoid a fee. Be sure to leave the vehicle in good condition for the next member. If the member using the vehicle after you reports that the vehicle was left in an unacceptable condition, you may be assessed a fee
In the event of a breakdown, flat tire or other problem, call us immediately so we can dispatch our 24-hour roadside assistance.
Enterprise CarShare is committed to providing mobility options for our customers with disabilities. Mobility devices including left hand controls with spinner knobs, left foot accelerators and pedal extenders are available at no additional charge.
Due to the unique nature of our services and the fact that mobility devices require installation, please contact a service representative by phone, 24 hours a day at 866-225-4284 to reserve a vehicle with such devices. Please note mobility device-equipped vehicles will be provided by Enterprise Rent-A-Car. 48 hours advanced notice is required. Visit our Customers with Disabilities page for more information.
Return the vehicle to its designated parking space (where you picked it up). Please remember to leave the vehicle ready for the next member:
Ending your reservation may differ depending on your program and location. Please visit your program page for exact details.
Please note: Simply returning the car to its designated parking space will not notify us that the car has been returned—you must also complete the steps above to ensure your reservations ends, or late fees may apply.
Returning the vehicle late or extending after your reservation has ended will incur a penalty. If you know you're going to be late, extend online, with our app, or by phone before the end of your reserved time. If there's no reservation right after yours, we can extend your reservation without a problem. If your extension or late return delays another member who has reserved the vehicle you are driving, an inconvenience fee may apply.
Sometimes. If you plan to return your vehicle earlier than expected, simply shorten your reservation online, with our app, or by phone. Starting at the time you notify us of your early return, you are responsible for up to three hours of your canceled time. (Ex: You have a reservation from 11am – 9pm. At 2pm you adjust your reservation to end at 4pm. You will be responsible for time up to 5pm, three hours after the time you made the change. Any time after 5 pm is no longer your responsibility!)
Contact us immediately so we can make arrangements to remove the unauthorized vehicle and give you directions on where to park. We may ask you to find another parking space close by and provide location details to us so we can move the vehicle or direct the next member to the car.
Always check the vehicle before exiting to ensure you have all of your belongings and that the vehicle is clean and fueled. If you do leave behind an item, contact Member Services for temporary access to the car as long as it isn’t on reservation with another member. Please be aware that Enterprise is not responsible for any personal belongings left behind.
You’ll keep a credit card on file to pay for your reservations. Depending on your program location and membership, reservations may be charged when you book or at the time of your reservation. Additional time, mileage and fees will be charged as they are incurred and applied to the total cost of your trip. The card on file must be a major credit card and must be in the name of the primary member (account holder).
Annual memberships renew automatically and any applicable membership fee will be charged upon the anniversary month of your join date. For more details on payment, or if you are using our services in New York and do not have a credit card, please review member policies on your program page.
Depending on the plan you choose, your rate may also include a limited amount of miles per reservation, reserved day or hour. Any miles over your limit will be charged at a low per-mile rate. Check your program page for your rate plan’s mileage limit and per-mile charge.
Driving credit can be applied toward reservation time and mileage. It is automatically applied to eligible costs and cannot be transferred, applied to previous rentals or balances owed or other fees/charges,and has no actual cash value or surrender value.

If the vehicle is damaged during your reservation, you may be responsible for a damage fee. Liability and Damage Waiver coverage varies by program or location.

Failure to report damage could result in suspension or termination of membership.
We don't want to hold you responsible for damage that existed prior to your use of the car. Please take a few minutes before you drive to inspect the car prior to each rental. In the glove box, you’ll find a damage evaluator and instructions for reporting damage or vehicle issues at the time of pick up.

Policy: The Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Act requires auto manufacturers to send a notice of any safety recall to vehicle owners. When Enterprise Holdings receives such a safety recall notice and the corresponding Vehicle Identification Numbers (VINs), it is Enterprise Holding’s policy to not rent such vehicles until the manufacturer’s specified remedy or authorized interim repair has been implemented.
Process: After receiving the safety recall notice, Enterprise Holdings identifies affected vehicles by VIN and then places a “mandatory hold” on them in our rental management system. This “hold” directs the recall work be completed before renting the vehicle. Sometimes manufacturers advise that certain recalled vehicles can be safely operated once an authorized interim repair has been completed. In such cases, Enterprise Holdings may rent vehicles after the interim repair has been completed – but only until the final remedy is available.
