On-Campus Rental Car Services
Students who would like to rent a car for the day can do so through RDR and pick up the car on the campus of Georgia Southwestern State University. Students will receive a special approximated price of $37 per day and would be responsible for paying gas before returning it. For renters who would like to drive within a 100 mile radius or less or by hour, the cost is $8.99 per hour plus taxes and fees for in town usage, not including gas. Students will need to select their date and time of pick-up from the website below, and provide an up to date driver's license and credit card to make the reservations. Students will also need to include their student ID number in the Comments Section of the Reservations process below.
Once you have made the reservation, the renter will be picked up by an RDR representative at the scheduled time and brought to the RDR office for paperwork and processing. Rates are charged per hour with a 20 minute grace period. Once you have completed your rental, simply park in the designated spot and return the car key to the GSW Campus Safety office. Email our RDR office through your Radar email to indicate that you have returned the vehicle.
**You must have a valid drivers license, be 21 years old, or 19 - 21 with parental consent and insurance validation, and have a GSW student ID, along with your debit or credit card for payment.**
