How-to Set Up Minimum Mileage Charge For Distance Based Pricing
Minimum Mileage for Distance-Based Pricing
What is this?
Allows the Limo Anywhere operator to set a minimum price for each Vehicle Type for the first mile which would not be prorated in the customer was going less than one mile.
How to use this?
Set up your Distance Based Pricing with the cost of the first mile being the minimum you would charge for that Vehicle Type
Determine how many miles/km you would transport a customer for that price.
Enter the distance you would travel minus 1 at $0.00 per mile or km
Determine the amount you want for each additional mile/km for this Vehicle Type
Enter that value in the all additional miles
Here is an illustration of how that will appear in Limo Anywhere.

Why is this important?
Previous to this enhancement if a customer booked a trip less than 1 mile/km they would be charged a prorated portion of that rate so no minimum per Vehicle type could be established.
Distance Based Pricing should be set up for all Vehicle Types that are going to be in the ORES where a point to point rate would be displayed. That way even if someone requests a ride outside of what is set up with Fixed Rates a price will be displayed. If someone visits your site, and a price is not displayed they may go to another operator….and you will never know.
Using Distance Based Rate Matrixes a different minimum can be set up for other cities outside of your service area. For example you could have a Chicago Rate, a Los Angeles Rate, and a New York City rate that are all different even if you operate in Dallas. You can display accurate pricing for your clients in any city they travel to.
