Set the prices and cost for Private transfer

In order to set the prices for a Private transfer using a rate table, you must access the specific rate table by clicking on Rate Tables on the main menu. Then, double click or select the blue arrow of the specific rate table you wish to access. Proceed by clicking on the Transfer Prices tab. Here, you can choose whether to configure a generic price or a specific price per section

  • Generic price

Define all the elements you deem necessary to calculate the price of the transfer and, for each element, choose a unit price and associate it with a quantity that could be the Total distance (every mile is multiplied by the unit price), the Duration in hours (every hour is multiplied by the unit price) or a Flat price.

When the rate table is used to calculate a price for a quotation or a booking, the final amount is given by the sum of the unit price of each element multiplied by the specified quantity.

Let’s see an example. The configuration below signifies that the fare for the driver is $30 per hour and for the vehicle is $0.40 per mile.

By entering the data in a quotation or in a booking, the price is automatically set.

To see the details of the calculation, click on the Final total (or open the Prices tab), then click on Show rate table.

You are free to add all of the elements that you find necessary to the calculation of the price and to specify, for each element, a Band or the Lowest price.

By setting a Band, you can define a set price for the certain property of the service. For example, you can set a price for the first 100 miles and a different price for the next miles (from 101 miles, and so on).

By setting the Lowest price, if the quantity multiplied by the unit price is less than this value, the Lowest price is applied anyway.

In the picture below, the band is set at $0.35 from mile 1 to mile 100. However, given that the supplier has specified a minimum price of $20.00, a minimum of at least $20.00 must be paid even if the journey does not cover the entire 100 miles.

In addition to the unit price, for each item, you can also configure its Unit Cost. This information is treated just like the price and when you create a new quotation or booking, in addition to the price being set, so will the cost.

  • Price per section

Configure specific rates per section, specifying Departure, Arrival, and Price.

Add a new row by clicking on +.

In the window, choose among your Geographical areas and your Places.

In any service, if the departure and arrival of the trip find a geographical correspondence with the route of the rate table, then it is set the corresponding price.

On the single route, you can configure the Duration in minutes so that Sengerio can apply that automatically once the start time of the service is inserted.

You can also specify the Advance in minutes to allow Sengerio to calculate the departure and arrival times of the trip based on the time of departure of a Flight from the airport (that you can enter from the Flight field).

Also, you can set the Cost for a single section, and when you go to create a new service, it will be set together with the price.
