Tonight we have added a much requested feature – the ability to upload your own logo from within the affiliate portal. This logo will then be displayed on all your car hire quote and book pages.
To upload a logo login to the affiliate portal and click the new ‘Style’ tab. From there you can see the existing logo that is set
Click ‘Choose File’ to select your image (gif/jpeg or png) then click upload.
Note that we do not resize your logo at all so you will need to ensure it is appropriately proportioned before upload.
Today we are pleased to announce the integration of Enjoy Car Hire into the Car Hire Engine network.
Enjoy offer great rates at some of our key airport locations so should prove a great addition to our supplier base. Enjoy Car Hire have been enabled for all affiliates so you should see bookings coming through from today.
Today we have released version 2 of our quote engine technology which is based on a faster, more efficient platform to help get car hire quotes to your customers in the quickest time possible.
We now have over ten car hire companies partnered with the Car Hire Engine network and over the past 12 months we have reviewed how each company integrates with the platform and optimised each integration to maximise performance.
Coupled with the improvements we made in last weeks location update we are now covering more locations and displaying quotes even faster than this time last year. Our affiliates and suppliers should see the benefits of these improvements as conversion rates increase.
Today we have completed our latest location update which brings our coverage to just over 11,000 car rental locations worldwide. We have also been working closely with Sixt and Hertz to ensure we receive better location data from them going forward. This should improve your conversions from those suppliers on your sites.
Today we launched the new consumer facing www.carhirengine.co.uk site. The site features a number enhancements over our previous offering with a more comprehensive FAQ section, more detailed example integrations and clearer illustrations of how our technology works. We hope you like it!
The site is the first part of a number of enhancements we have planned for the coming months. Since our launch we have experienced rapid growth as we have positioned ourselves as the number one car hire affiliate program in the market. Over the past 6 months we have been redesigning our quoting engine to improve speed and performance further. Into 2012 you will see version 2 of our affiliate reporting interface with a level of customisation unseen in any affiliate program to date. We’ll be keeping you all updated of progress over the coming weeks including some sneak previews of new features so be sure to subscribe to our twitter feed @carhireengine.
