- Can you help integrate Car Hire Engine into my site?
Our support team is on hand to help with any integration questions you may have. Our engine is designed for quick and easy implementation.
- When is commission paid?
Commission is paid on a monthly basis for the proceeding months drop offs. This means if a customer makes a reservation for a car in January which is due to be collected on the 10th February and returned on the 15th February you would receive your commission payment in March.
Payment is made directly to your specified bank account via electronic transfer on the 20th of the month (or the closest UK bank working day there after). You can enter your bank details securely within your affiliate administration area.
- Is there a minimum threshold for commission payments?
For our UK based affiliates, there is no minimum payment threshold. For international affiliates the minimum payment threshold is €200.
- I do not live in the UK, can I still open an account?
Yes, we support international affiliate accounts.
- Can I include my own tracking codes?
Yes, you can add a tracking code to your content unit by utilising the 'trackcode' parameter. This allows you to track reservations back to the content unit they originated from.
We can add customised javascipt code including Google Analytics to your confirmation pages on request.
- Is the booking process secure?
Our engine uses SSL security from Thawte to ensure a secure environment on step three of our booking process. Affiliates on our premium partner program have the option of installing their own SSL certficate.
- Can I chose which suppliers feature on my site?
Yes, when you sign up all partners included in our comparison service are available to you. If you wish some to be excluded from your results we are happy to remove them for you. Simply let us know at any time of your preferences.
- What currencies do you offer?
We offer GBP, Euro and USD currencies � our form auto detects the location of the user and automatically defaults the currency to the most suitable for the user.
- Do you offer any other languages?
At the moment we only offer English for the engine but we are happy to discuss any other requirements on a case by case basis.
- Do I have to sign an agreement or contract?
We are confident on the conversion and performance of our solutions. unlike others we do not want to tie affiliates into long contracts on a solution they are unhappy with so we do not require any contractual commitment from your side.
- Can I get an invoice from you for tax reasons?
Yes, we raise a self-billing invoice for every commission payment which you can download from your affiliate control panel.
- How do I contact you?
Once you are approved on the Car Hire Engine program you can raise a support ticket from within your affiliate control panel. If you have any question prior to signup up please use our contact us form.
- Can I cross sell my other products or affiliate feeds?
Yes, on both the confirmation page and subsequent confirmation email sent by us there is room to add additional custom code or text specified and unique to your account. This is an ideal environment to offer a hotels link for example or any other relevant product or placement.
- How do I know when I make a sale?
When anyone books car hire with or without the additional daily insurance product you receive an immediate email with the details of the booking to your specified email account. It is also shown within your reporting module of the affiliate admin area.
- How do you track the bookings?
Our affiliate program uses a proprietary tracking system and does not use any third party systems. By not using any third parties such as affiliate marketing networks it ensures we can pay you more commission on both car rentals and the insurance. Our tracking and reporting is a proven model and has been paying affiliates commission for over three years now.
- How much can I make?
Our standard commission level starts at 5%. The average booking value for car rental is between £150 to £190 (GBP) depending on your source traffic. This means you will receive an average commission per rental of between £7.50 � £9.50. We also bundle in an insurance product which increases your revenues further.
- For affiliates with existing car hire volume we can offer a higher commission rate, please contact us or more details.
Overall the two revenue streams combined ensures we are the best option for conversion and revenue.
- Can I deep link to a location or just show locations within a certain country?
Our engine can either deep link to a location on our original free form engine or we can product an engine with a drop down of only locations within a specified country. If you have a site with many location specific landing pages we are happy to work with you to make every page deep linked to your requirements. Deep linking on a specific location landing page will help your conversion.
- Can I get a list of your locations?
Yes, a list of locations are available to be downloaded in your affiliate control panel.
- Will my site be approved to the program?
We only stipulate that the sites you wish to feature our engine on will provide relevant traffic and do not use �black hat� or false means to obtain said traffic. We do not wish to show on any sites featuring pornographic or illegal material. Once you have submitted your application we will quickly evaluate your sites and contact you.
