Travelers must reserve a commercial rental vehicle (class size) according to policy (see below):
4.2.5 Commercial Rental Vehicles
18.104.22.168 A commercial rental vehicle should only be used when a temporary need arises, a state vehicle is unavailable, and the cost will be less than the reimbursement associated with a privately-owned vehicle. Only the state employee renting the vehicle is permitted to operate the vehicle unless another state employee registers to operate the vehicle with the rental company.
The Purchasing Card is the only acceptable method of payment when renting a vehicle without prior approval. Reimbursement for rentals made outside of the statewide car rental contract requires authorization from the Travel Office. Reimbursement will be made at actual cost for the daily rental fee for a mid-size, standard, or smaller vehicle, plus mileage fees and fuel costs. For travel of more than a few days in duration, weekly rental rates may be reimbursed if they will result in a lower total cost than the daily rate. Reimbursement may be made for full-size vehicles if more than three (3) people are traveling together on business and for larger vehicles if a group of five (5) or more is traveling together.
The West Virginia Board of Risk and Insurance Management requires that all employees who drive a state vehicle or drive their personal vehicle and are reimbursed by the University complete a safe driver training course each year.
To meet this requirement, the Marshall University Environmental Health and Safety Department has developed an updated on-line safe driver training module. This training will take approximately 30 minutes to complete. Remember this MUST BE COMPLETED once per calendar year in order to receive reimbursement.

How do I request a waiver?
If you have a special request or if you think that you can get less expensive prices without using a contract, please request a waiver.
Send an email to email@example.com stating why you want a waiver, along with any pertinent information, such as airline comparisons. We will respond to your request via email, generally within 48 business hours. Please note that we may request additional information.
Reminder: Only the Travel Office can approve waivers. Your supervisor, vice president, or other departments on campus may support your request but do not have the authority to grant them.
Before you travel, you must complete a Travel Authorization Form.
Obtain all appropriate signatures and forward this form to the Office of Accounts Payable (203 OM).
Please note that this form is only an authorization to travel. It is not audited in accordance with Travel Policies and Procedures, and your supervisor’s signature should not be considered a waiver of policies or procedures.
Only the Central Travel Office in Old Main can grant a waiver for policies or procedures.
