Car rentals are made easy!
Note: If you are including a car on a booking that already has air segments, some of the search fields will be auto-populated for you.
(click the heading once to view the answer; click it again to collapse)
If you type in a location, you will likely see a drop-down with suggestions, ordered by relevance. For example, if you search for Chicago, it may suggest the city Chicago, IL, USA, and then airports located in that city.
Notice the icons next to the suggested locations.
- The double-circle icon indicates a city that contains an airport
- Airplane icon indicates an airport
- The teardrop icon indicates any other location (smaller city, business, restaurant, tourist attraction, etc.)
Click on the appropriate value, or just "Tab" if the first is correct. That's it!
Dropoff at different location
For example, if your traveler would like to get their rental car from Chicago O'Hare International, have the car for the duration of their stay, and then drop it off at the airport before their departing flight, your job here is done. Move on to the date fields!
One-Way Rental: However, if the car needs to be returned to a different location, check the "Dropoff at a different location" box. Doing so will display a new "Dropoff location" field. Complete this in the same manner as the Pickup Location.
This example will allow your traveler to pick up a car at ORD airport and return it at a non-airport location of your choosing in South Bend, IN, USA.
"Pickup Date and Time" Fields
The times will default to the current time, rounded up to the next 15-minute increment. Indicate the times to help ensure the vendor will be open when needed.
Atriis will alert you if the dropoff time is after the pickup time, which may subject your traveler to an additional rental day charge.
Here it is a bit bigger:
"Related Accounts" Dropdown
By setting the Related Accounts value, all of the relevant discounts, agreements, and preferred cars will be highlighted and displayed in the search results.
If you have not yet added a traveler to the trip and the Related Account is not pre-populated, you can select one from the drop-down menu. Either type in the name of the account or scroll through the menu items to choose an account. Only one is allowed per booking.
"Rental Agency" Dropdown
If you need to clear the field to allow all vendors in the results, click the "X" next to the vendor.
