Quick Start Program
The Quick Start program is ideal for employees who need access to the rental car before Enterprise opens at 7:30 am. The program is designed to allow the traveler to leave early and not incur an additional days charge. The car can be picked up the day prior between 4:30-6:00 p.m. An additional charge of $10 will apply and the daily rate charge begins the following morning.
- It is ideal for that 26-30 hour rental
- Not necessary if the rental is for 24 hour period; customer picks up at 5:00pm and returns the following day at 5:00pm
- Not necessary if the rental will be two 24 hour periods

Enterprise Fueling Policy
Several fueling options are available to assist UAMS travelers with their rental needs.
Option A - At the time of rental pick up, renters may purchase a full tank of gas at competitive industry pre-purchase fuel prices. Just ask the rental agents for the Fuel Service Option (FSO).
Option B - The renter may be charged the refueling rate based on current self-service, per-gallon pricing, plus a fee of up to 50 percent. Corporate locations will cap the maximum refueling charge at $2 per gallon above current full-service, per-gallon pricing.
Option C - The renter replaces all gallons used before returning the vehicle to avoid all refueling charges.
