What's an Enterprise Discount Code?

Enterprise assigns accountnumbers so that certain customers can get specific discounts. Accountnumbers can be negotiated forcorporate employees (as well as for other Enterprise partners)and with regards corporate rates, with Enterprisethey are oftencheaper than public ones. If your organization is affiliated with this car rental company, you may be able to save on your advance rental by adding the relevant accountnumber to your booking.

Major businessesnot onlyget cheaper rates with aparticular EnterpriseRent-A-Car discountcode,but also sometimesget value-added promotions and special rental benefits.

An Enterprise account number is usuallyalphanumeric, though there areodd alphabetical exceptions. There doesn't seem to be a comprehensive list of codes online, so we scoured the internet to find as many as possible, to see how much you can save. We mainly only found college corporate rates, however, so then tried searching particular companies. The main one to appear was IBM, though searching for codes for many other businesses proved fruitless.

As expected, you can only generally use an account number if you have ID to prove that you're entitled to the rate when picking up your rental, or you could be charged the full daily rate.
