This Vehicle Classes page lets you manage your vehicle classes. This setting is important to take note because your selection of rates depends on the vehicle class. Vehicle classes are what is displayed in Step 2 (Cars) of the reservation process. Examples of vehicle classes are Economy, Luxury, Honda 1.5, Honda 1.8, and so on.
To elaborate more on vehicle class, here are some of the ways to split your vehicles into the different classes.
- Cars with same rates are usually added into the same class, however, for example, if one of the cars is an SUV and the other is a luxury car, you would split them into different vehicle classes.
- Cars with same rates but different prices for additional charges. For example, if the insurance coverage for a Honda is more expensive than the insurance coverage for a Toyota, you would split them into different vehicle classes.
The vehicles you have in your system are linked to one of these vehicle classes which in turn, are linked to the company brand. Therefore, if you have multiple company brands, you would have to create the different vehicle classes per brand even if they are the exact same. Each vehicle class can only have one rate.
