Busses are the safest way for large groups to travel and should be
used when economically feasible. When chartering a bus for the first
time, please contact MIT's Procurement Office. They may be
able to provide advice on reputable companies, and they can verify
that a vendor has sufficient insurance to meet MIT's requirements.
You can research bus company safety records here.
Budget and Avis are MIT's preferred car rental
vendors. If renting cars for official MIT Club Sports business, there
is no surchage for drivers between the ages of 18 and 24.
You must use MIT's corporate account number when making the reservation.
Due to their poor safety record, 15-passenger vans are not
allowed. When renting vehicles, cars and minivans are preferred
because they are insured directly by MIT's preferred vendors.
