Rental Rates – Short Term

**Limited availability for certain categories.  Vehicle may be substituted through another available vehicle option or a sublet vendor. Sublet fees may differ from Fleet Management rates.**

Registration (and approval by a Fleet Management admin) is required before anyone can access the key box to pick up or return the vehicle key for a short term rental.  A registered user can access a vehicle’s keys for another registered user, but only if the six digit confirmation code of the reservation is known.

We will not issue a key to a driver who is not registered in our system.  Additionally, we will not provide a confirmation number without the reservation originators’ verbal permission.

The registration process is very simple.  Go to the Fleet Management home page,, look on the left-hand column, and choose the Request a Vehicle & Register as User page.  Follow the directions.  If the request is completed during normal business hours, we can approve post haste.  If the request is made after hours, it will be approved the next business day.  If you have any question please call Fleet Management at 865.974.2134.

*Rates do NOT include fuel for rental requests but includes unlimited miles.  All purchases with the WEX fuel card are passed on to department.*
