Want to set-up insurance at the booking level?
It is not necessary to configure each client with their own insurance details; it can also be done on a booking by booking basis if required. This method will generally be used if the customer has not had their insurance policy details against their client record or if their insurance details have changed.
On the Insurance tab in the Booking/ Rental Screen you will be able to add or remove the insurance details from the booking. An affect of having the rental using the clients insurance or the hire companies issue is that the system will automatically adjust the rental charge to use RENTCINS rather than RENT to allow for proper revenue reporting.
Looking at the Insurance tab you will find the Use Client Insurance button, press this button if you want the rental go out under the client’s insurance. This will also have the affect of correctly marking the customer’s rental agreement.
