One of the options available under 'Reservation Preferences' is charge by day vs. charge by night.
Learn how it will effect certain settings and function within Wheelbase when charging by night vs. charging by day.
Protection packages, mileage and generator fees always calculates on a per day basis, regardless of whether you charge by night vs. charge by day.
Charging by night
Charges for each 'night' of reservation.
A reservation from July 4-7 is calculated as '3 nights'
Base rental rate of $150 ($150 x 3 = $450)
Charging by day
Charges for each 'calendar day' of reservation.
A reservation from July 4-7 would be calculated as '4 days'
Base rental rate of $150 ($150 x 4 = $600)
Pick-up and drop-off times
The system pick-up and drop-off time default (3pm & 11am) under reservation preferences mesh well with charge by night option. If charging by day it is recommended to offer earlier (morning) pick-up along with later (afternoon/early evening) drop-off.
Store location hours
'Store Location' hours work in tandem with default default pick-up and drop-off times. Common practice here is to offer a two to three hour time frame around chosen default to offer some flexibility.
Turn around time
If you charge by day and 'Turn around time' is 'Same day pick up allowed', availability of vehicle is not until one day after the rig has been returned.
- Charge by day/Same day pick up allowed
- rig returned on 7/12
- next available date 7/13
- Charge by day/'1 Night' Turn around time
- rig returned 7/12
- next available date 7/14
