Renting Vehicles

Hertz On Demand. In addition to the frequent on-campus & Malibu Shopping shuttles six days each week, Pepperdine offers car rental on campus. Car sharing allows members, at least 18 years old, an environmentally-friendly, economical alternative to bringing a car to campus. The cars are available 24/7 and rental rates, as low as $6.80 per hour, include fuel, maintenance, roadside assistance, insurance, cleaning and parking. Hertz On Demand members enjoy a paperless program where they can reserve, drive and return vehicles all on their own, via the internet or phone.

In car, a hands-free audio kit connects members to a Member Care Center representative should they have questions, need assistance or need to extend their rental.  The in-car technology also enables Hertz to 'communicate' with the vehicle enabling representatives to unlock, engage and locate vehicles. The technologically savvy cars are also equipped with iPod connectivity and NeverLostĀ® in-car navigation system.
