Hello,

You can increase the prices for the Weekend by creating a Special Price. If you don't put any From and To date, the prices will be increased every weekend of the year.
Please have a look at the documentation of VikRentCar for more details.

OK I am trying to set the system up in such a way that it would calculate different prices for High season, Mid season and Low season.
How can I get this done, as at the moment it does not do it automatically but the customer would have to pick manually.

Thank you.

Hello,

You have to create a Special Price for each Season.
The Special Prices can increase or decrease with a % value your standard rental fares that you have in the Fares Table of each vehicle.
If your client works with Seasons then you don't need to select some days of the week or all the days of the week but you can just enter the begin date of the season and the end date with the calendars.
Please have a look at the documentation for more information.
Momchil Petrushkov 3-19-13 13:46
Brilliant! Thank you for this super fast reply. You guys rock!
Momchil Petrushkov 3-28-13 17:11
OK, now how can I get the system to change the price not with a specific percent but with a set price. For example I create a car which has a special price for the summer period but I want to be able to change the price dynamically with a few Euros per day rather than with 9.88%

Thank you.
Staff E4j 3-28-13 17:45
Unfortunately that is not possible yet.
The new version 1.7 will let you insert also absolute values in the Special Prices instead of just percentage values.
We haven't planned the release date of the new version yet but it should be within April.
Momchil Petrushkov 3-28-13 17:48
OK April makes perfect sense. I am most definitely looking forward to it. From what I can see it will provide the solution to the majority of the questions that I have been asking.

Thank you.

Hello,

You have to create an Option that is Always Selected.
Put the default Quantity to 1 and don't allow the Selectable Quantity setting.

This way the users will see your fixed fee.

About the calendar, that's how the native Joomla calendar works. If you want to use a more professional calendar you should set the calendar type to Jquery UI in the modules and in the configuration of VikRentCar.
Please make sure that your modules/template are not calling other jQuery libraries after VikRentCar or the jQuery UI calendar will not work. You would get a javascript conflict in the browser console.

Usually these Javascript conflicts can be solved by disabling the load of the jQuery library in your modules.

Hello,

If you create a menu item of type VikRentCar - Cars List and then apply a category filter, you will see that the link is the following:
index.php?option=com_vikrentcar&view=carslist&category_id=THE_ID
Ayyub Guliyev 2-28-13 20:43
Hello, when we display the cars list we display it's price for the first day. Usually this is the most expensive price and I don't want to display this price. Does not look very competitive this way. Please advice how can I display let's say the price for 7 days period per day.

Hello,

Some of our clients already asked how to change the "starting from" price. Right now it's not possible to do change that setting so you have to edit the code manually.
We will do something in the next version of the program.
Open the following file:
/components/com_vikrentcar/views/carslist/view.html.php

Around the line 44 you will see something like this:
$q="SELECT `id`,`cost` FROM `#__vikrentcar_dispcost` WHERE `idcar`='".$dbo->getEscaped($c['id'])."' AND `days`='1' ORDER BY `#__vikrentcar_dispcost`.`cost` ASC LIMIT 1;";

Change `days`='1' into `days`='7'

Then change the line 49:
$cars[$k]['cost']=$tar[0]['cost'];

Into:
$cars[$k]['cost']=($tar[0]['cost'] / 7);

Now the starting from prices will be calculated from the fare for 7 days of rental.

Hi there, Installed the Vik Rent Car template and shows a white bar with the title home and a black bar just below. Where did I go wrong? I do not see any modules either. I have used the 2.5 version on Joomla 2.5

Hello,

In VikRentCar v1.6 you can do that by creating Extra Hours Charges for each car depending on the hours exceeded.
Please remember that Pickup at 8am on the 10th, Drop Off at 10am on the 12th, is considered as 2 days and 2 extra hours only if the setting "Extra Hours of Extended Gratuity Period" in the configuration is 0. If it was 1, those 2 hours would've been considered as 1 only extra hour.
If you don't have any extra hour charge, the daily fare will be considered for 3 days of rental in that example.

Hi,

At the moment the component only check if the user is logged in after pressing the "Book Now" button on the "showprc" page.

Will it be possible to validate user login after pressing the "continue" button on the "search" page?

Users need to be logged in and I need their details already after they selected a car from the "availability" list.

Thanks!

Hello,
At the Vik Rent car central panel i went to
>Calendar
and booked - reserved a car for a week.
Now i want to delete or cancel this reservation but there is no way to do it. At the red marked calendar days i click on the day but i see only a picture from the car on the screen with the words "Edit reservation" without any link to change the reservation.

Hello,

Once you make a reservation from the administrator task Calendar, an incomplete order is saved and you can edit it by clicking on one of the red days that appeared in the calendars below.
From that task you can update the reservation or delete it, there's a button in the toolbar.
Lahirul Latigu 2-19-13 08:13

I have the same problem. When I click on one of the red days, the wording appears, but no link or any way to edit.
Staff E4j 5-30-13 15:20
With VikRentCar v1.6 when you are making a quick reservation from the Administrator section, make sure to put some text in the text area field Customer Information otherwise a reference order will not be saved. It will just book the vehicle for those dates.
This issue will be "fixed" in the new version 1.7 of VikRentCar that will be released next week.
