  • Charge a fee for extra mileage

    If you have an excess mileage charge for each car type, with Car Rental Script 2.0 you can easily set allowed daily mileage and price for each mile over the allowed limit.

  • What is the difference between Car types and Car inventory?

    Car types are what your clients will see and book. For example you may have different car types such us - Economy, Family, Luxury, SUV. On the front end rental module where your clients will make reservations they will see these car rental types. On the other hand the Cars are the actual vehicles that your car rental company operates. Here is an example:

    You create an Economy car type and then add these 3 cars to it Hyundai i30, Nissan Juke, Ford Fiesta.
    Then you create Family car type and add these 3 cars to it BMW 5 series, Ford Mondeo, Opel Insignia.
    Now when your clients make a booking they will not select the exact car model (e.g. BMW 5 with registration number ABC134). Instead they mark only that they need a Family car and the system automatically assigns one of the available cars to their reservation.

    For each Car type that you add, you can set different options such as price per day or per hour, how many miles/km per day is allowed, price for extra mile/km, transmission type (manual, automatic,etc.).
