Touching Base No. 6


It’s time to get caught up on what’s new and coming your way in our monthly product update–Touching Base. Here's a look at the last month.

The big stuff. 

You don’t want to miss these. 

  • Transactional emails (emails you and your customers receive throughout the booking process and leading up to the booking) were updated and improved. These more efficient emails help your business better communicate with renters while driving more traffic, and delighted customers, through updated ‘Call to Action’ visuals in every email. See some examples of the changes here.  

  • Wheelbase Verification improvements (U.S.) have been made to reduce confusion around insurance, and the ‘approved drivers’ for Wheelbase insurance. We noticed the recent transitions brought about some friction, as change often does. We heard your feedback, listened to what was throwing people off in the software, and made a handful of adjustments to better display who is verified and approved to drive using our insurance. Our guiding purpose through all these updates around driver verifications is to protect your assets and mitigate the probability a customer is risky and reckless. 

  • Trip Insurance Service (U.S.)  (cancellations, interruptions, etc) has been updated, ensuring that all customers who purchase this service are eligible to utilize its benefits starting day one. Meaning, the cost of Trip Insurance deduction occurs at the time of booking–the renter’s first payment. Remember, Trip Insurance can only be canceled/refunded within ten days of purchase. Learn more about Trip Insurance here.
