    Default Real Time - Online Quote

    Alright everyone, I have had a pet project that I have been working on and off for the past 4-5 months. Here's the gist, over the past year I have been in business, I come to the realization that No Run is the same. I.E. I am in Kansas City, and I have a client who wants an airport run from the Airport to Kansas City, but their address is 26 Miles away from the airport, and another who wants a run from the Airport to Kansas City and it's only 4 miles away..... So in saying that I wanted to make an online quote form that will calculate the rate based on the vehicle, distance (point a-b), and time of day (all while adding service/fuel fees, gratuity, and the airport fee). So I built this php based online quote form in which the customer can fill in their details and wham, it calculates everything right there and then. I also thought this would be good for my family who helps at busy times making reservations, and can't figure out the wtf i am talking about with the formula in my head...... Anyways, I would like some feedback. Please feel free to test it out, and let me know what you think, and if there are any bugs....... Anyways. Thanks!!!

    Here is the Link:

    You are more than welcome to test out the "Charter" portion of the form as well, I am still working out the bugs. Anyways Thanks!!!!!

    P.S. Try it as though you are looking up quotes for your area as well, and see if they are almost in line or whatever. Thanks again..... I'll shut up now...

    I tried your calc prog. I get a TC at 5:00 PM from the airport to N. Brighton - 15.7 miles at $85 and from the airport to W. 197Th Terr - 45.1 miles for $250.20, looking expensive for 43 min. ride, is this correct?

    are you putting the full address in i.e. MCI (you could put the AP code in) to 610 NW Platte Valley Dr., Kansas City, MO 64151?

    Because, that is absolutely not right!! I tryed what you said, and it showed up $115.80

    ("MCI" to "W. 197Th Terr" Typed exactly like that). Anyways, thanks for the input, and the bug

    No, I had Kensas City International airport, let me know if this works. I also like that you pull the address info from Google if I can see correct.

    I am still not getting that, whether you type it out completely "kansas city international airport" or "mci" or even the address of the airport (I dont know that), it should work. I can't get it to do what you are doing, so I can replicate the error.... Do me a favor, fill out the email portion, so I can see the problem. I will be emailed to me as well. Thanks!!

    ok...... that makes sense!! it's an error code actually! The error was that the address you provided was not found (1 W. 197th Terr, kensas city) No such address! The code shows up as 200, hence the pricing..... Try a real address for instance.... Your closest airport to your office. or whatever. But yeah I need to figure out a way to convert the error code to an error message without calculating as if it were a factor in the calculation.

    there that last one worked. p.s. "Kansas City", not "Kensas City". Thanks for pointing out that error though, I have to look into that one

    Other than that little error bit, what do you think about it?? Is it as awesome as I hope it will be, or am I somehow blowing smoke up my own rear?

    i was doing that as well, but no kidding there are 635 zip codes within 100 miles of KC, and I don't have the time to edit everyone of them, everytime I have a rate change..... This way, I go into the admin page and wham. there it is, all editable.... no code, no brain needed. It does all the hardwork.
