I am planning to start a website where people can search for rental car rates from several different sources. Ideally, visitors will be able to enter the following:
- their zip code (or airport code)
- their pick up date and time
- their drop of date and time
- And an option for size of vehicle
After entering in this information, rental car rates will be displayed based on first the closest locations to the appropriate zip code and second the most inexpensive rates available. Both the daily rate should be listed, as well as the total price INCLUDING taxes. I want a booking engine that looks similar to [url removed, login to view], but displays results similar to [url removed, login to view] (only the car rental portion).
(NOTE: With the [url removed, login to view] engine, the customer enters a city name...This booking engine will be able to search rates using the customer's ZIP/POSTAL/AIRPORT code)
Ideally, the results would display rates that come directly from the car rental company's websites, but be listed on a landing page from my website. The booking (or reserving) action would direct the visitor to the the actual companies website. I would like to add affiliate codes so I can make a profit from the referrals.
I do NOT have direct feeds (RSS or otherwise) from the car rental companies web sites, so the booking engine will have to search each car rental company's website independently and produce results by itself.
A car rental booking engine that allows visitors to enter in both their zip code and pick up and drop of information. A landing page that shows the rate results, and a transfer page that will direct the visitor to the car rental companies website to complete the booking.
The booking engine would include BOTH airport locations AND off-airport locations. The user should also be given the option to return at a different location than they pick up the car. I would also like a transferable "widget" that I can place on future sites. The widget will have the same booking fields (zip code, pick up date and time and drop off date and time)and the results will take you to the same landing page.
- Escrow will be available
- The programmer will not be paid anything until the job is complete, with the code on my server.
- If there is any confusion of the description of this project, it can be canceled by either party (webmaster or programmer) prior to beginning this project. Any and all Escrow will be reversed if the project is canceled.
I'm not sure of the type of code that will be needed for this. I posted several options, but ANY language/programming style can be used. The sites from which you will be gathering data work on different platforms. Ex. A few use .net and one uses .jsp and so on.
This project is URGENT. This is the FIFTH time I have posted this (or similar) project and no programmer has been able to complete it on time. Only bid if you know that you can complete it within a specific time frame!
