How to Settle a Reservation

Settling a reservation allows your drivers, agents, and affiliates that have pay schedules set up within your system to have their pay correctly calculated in the 'Payables' section. Settling a reservation is the process of finalizing trip information such as Rate, Passenger/Billing Contact Name, Payment Method, Driver, Vehicle Type, and Car.

NOTE: A reservation has to be paid in full or set to 'Direct Bill/Invoice' in order for it to be settled. All trips that are completed by the drivers must be set to the 'Done' status.
