VehPriceCheckRQ

Vehicle Price Check is designed to be used after an original vehicle availability request.

It is particularly useful if the availability entry was done several minutes ago, as all Car Supplier’s vehicles and rates have limited availability and it is possible the vehicle is no longer available.

Vehicle Price Check should be used immediately prior to using one of the Car booking APIs, to reduce the likelihood of a booking failure or a price change.

VehPriceCheckRQ is used to request information about a vehicle’s specific rate and verify if it is still available.

Vehicle Price Check allows for two types of inputs.

The preferred is to return the ‘ratekey’ that is returned from the GetVehAvail version 2 or higher:

  1. RateKey
  2. Specific car supplier at a specific location

If using specific car supplier at a specific location, then all the optional items that apply must also be part of the request.

Below is a table of options:

Return location city location code, if different than the pickup city location code.

Frequent Traveler

Guaranteed/prepaid rates

Commission programs
