For University of California Students and Staff only:
The University of California will not reimburse for added car insurance when you rent a car, so if you don't personally have insurance that covers car rentals, the University has negotiated car rental agreements (for UC staff & students only) with several car rental companies that include insurance. University agreements cover any damage sustained by the rental vehicle and provide increased liability coverage. In order to be covered you must identify yourself as a University employee on University business and provide the applicable UC ID# found at the web site below. For reservations and UC ID numbers, go to the following web site.
