Rental Car Agencies
As long as you are traveling on business for Willamette University decline the CDW insurance.

Always return the car with a full tank of gas; do not have the rental company re-fill the tank.
Willamette University encourages guests and candidates to be picked up at the Portland Airport. If other arrangements are required, Willamette University will reimburse for a one way or round trip HUT ticket. The University discourages car rentals for guests and candidates for liability reasons. However, in the event the budget officer approves a car rental, it is recommended that the candidate make the arrangements as they cannot be covered under the University insurance policy.
