The Heartland Rely is please to be partnering with Enterprise Rent-A-Car. Enterprise is offering special rates for Heartland Relay participants.
ADVANTAGES OF RENTING THROUGH ENTERPRISE RENT-A-CAR:
- A discounted rate
- Your rental is on a corporate account - corporate account rentals are given priority over the average rental, which means your vehicle is essentially guaranteed (allowing for the extreme exception: mechanical breakdown, etc.)
- We have an agreement with Enterprise so that there will NOT be a charge for extra drivers (as many rental car companies will). If the Enterprise branch does try to charge you, please ask them to read the conditions for the Timberline Events account.
