Canceling a reservation

Open Status

If the reservation is already on “Open” status, navigate to Step 6 (Payments). Here, click on the white “Cancel Reservation” button as shown in the picture below highlighted in orange.

After you have clicked on that button, a new window will appear, here, select the cancellation date, fill the Cancellation Reason if necessary, and click on the blue “Cancel Reservation” button.

Pending Reserved Status

If the reservation is “Pending Reserved” go to Step 6 – Payments, and click the “Change to Open” button shown below and then proceed with the Open instructions.

Rental Status

If the reservation is on “Rental,” navigate to Step 8 (Agreement) and review that the booking doesn’t have any Extensions, Adjustments or Vehicle Replacements under the Contract Modification section. If there are, you can click their number and click Delete, or directly click the delete button as shown below.

Once you verify there are no Contract Modifications, you can navigate to Step 7 and click the Cancel Pickup button under the Damage Report section. Then you can proceed with the Open Status instructions.

By clicking on the “Cancel Pick Up button,” you will be at Step 5 (Confirm) with the “Open” status.
