Military personnel often have to rent car for work or business travel. Most care rentals companies offer a government leisure travel rate which helps to save some money. Remember, for official travel, military orders are usually required. I know when our military family has to visit home, we always have to book a rental car, and I’m grateful that there are discounts out there.

Even with Ubers or Lyfts, having a car during travel provides you with the freedom to move anywhere. Traveling by car also reduces many costs of travel and transport and may be cheaper in the long run. Whether you are looking to get a rental for a few days or coming back home from deployment and want to move into a new place, you can check into military discounts offered by these car rentals companies. Most discounts are for active duty members and some offer it for veterans and retirees.

Before you book, always make sure the discount or offer is still active by visiting the company’s website first. (I’ve linked them below for you.)
