Enterprise and National rental programs
WELS has negotiated corporate rates with Enterprise Rent-A-Car and National. Any WELS member is free to rent using these special rates for both business and personal use. Becoming an Emerald Club member can also offer more benefits as outlined in the FAQ below.
Anyone interested in renting a car should sign up for the Emerald Club Program which is used by both Enterprise and National Car Rental programs. Those who have already signed up for Enterprise Plus can continue to use their existing account.
Those interested in renting a car will find two available options, Business and Personal. These two options will only show different rates if the vehicle is being rented from a location in Wisconsin that is not at an airport.
There are 4 different rental scenarios:
- If renting through National Car Rental: All rentals through the WELS link will automatically be quoted at the lower price of either the retail rate or the WELS negotiated rate.
- If renting through Enterprise outside of Wisconsin: All rentals through the WELS links, either Business or Personal will be quoted a rate that is 5% lower than the retail rate.
- If renting through Enterprise in Wisconsin at an airport location: All rentals through the WELS links, either Business or Personal will be quoted a rate that is 5% lower than the retail rate.
- If renting through Enterprise in Wisconsin not at an airport location: If the Business link is used, the quoted rate will be the WELS fixed rate. If the personal link is used, the quoted rate will be 5% lower than the retail rate. Please check both links to see which is the more cost-effective option.
What is the Emerald Club?
- Emerald Club is a loyalty program, providing members with exclusive benefits and privileges to make renting faster and easier.
- At most major North American airport locations, National brand allows members with a midsize car reservation to bypass the rental counter and proceed to the Emerald Club Aisle. There they may simply take any vehicle — midsize or larger.
- Regardless of the vehicle selected, a member pays only the midsize rate.
- Emerald Club allows members to accrue free rental days.
