Enterprise CarShare and Nissan Launch Exclusive Partnership on College Campuses

  • Nissan and Enterprise’s car-sharing service are teaming up
  • The two companies are offering discounted rates on Nissan rental vehicles
  • Nissan has also signed an exclusive deal to provide the firm with car-sharing vehicles

If you’re interested in renting a car on a college campus, you may soon find it’s a little cheaper to rent a Nissan than it was before. This deal is due to a new partnership between Enterprise CarShare and Nissan, which have teamed up to create lower rates on Nissan models.

According to the two companies, the partnership means available Nissan models can be rented for just $5 an hour, a 40-percent savings compared to Enterprise’s standard car-sharing rental rate. Enterprise says the deal is good from now until the end of the year.

Why the special offer? It’s all thanks to a new study from Enterprise, which indicates that experience with a rental car can be a powerful factor in a young driver’s decision to buy a vehicle. Specifically, the study states that nearly 70 percent of millennial customers reported they have considered purchasing a specific car model based on renting it.

That’s good news for Nissan, as Enterprise CarShare is available on an impressive 90 college campuses nationwide. The partnership between Nissan and Enterprise also ensures that the automaker will supply the rental-car firm with exclusively Nissan products for several years.

Nissan hopes those rentals will eventually turn into sales. If a young driver enjoys spending time in their freshly rented Nissan, the automaker’s College Grad Program can help them get a good deal on a new model when the time comes to make a purchase. The offer includes a 90-day deferred-payment option, excellent finance rates without prior credit history and no-haggle pricing, plus all the available incentives.

What it means to you: Nissan and Enterprise are making it easier and cheaper to be mobile on a college campus.
