What do you do?

• The current website is at "www.aravekirala.com"
• This is a “car hire platform” in Turkey targeting end users who will be able to see the offers of different providers. You can think of it as a marketplace where a rental car provider posts its offers in a dynamic way. So the prices for the cars change according to different conditions such as season, region and number of miles that a driver can make in a limited time period.
• The end users are going to make online reservation by choosing the appropriate offer for them. They will pay some of the amount due in order to guarantee their reservation. So reservation information will be sent to the car rental provider for their further planning.
• We are trying to form an easy to use and a simple platform to the end users. The navigation should be very simple and direct the customer in the rental process according to what the customer wants.
• This will be a low cost car hire platform focusing especially on long term rentals. So you can put anything on the design that would make an indication for low cost. (Pictures, graphs, cartoon etc.) Also any reference for different seasons, regions and number of miles are well accepted. Because the prices of the cars change according to whether the season is summer or winter. The prices rise when summer arrives because of the demand. Also, cars in popular places, especially in summer vacation locations are going to be more expensive than the other places.
• The brand name is “aravekirala” which means “search and rent” in Turkish. There is not any problem with preparing the website in English. We can translate them easily without any problem.

Page descriptions
Main Page
Main page , 1st step

The user will see how the system works in 3 basic steps as big pictures. This is preferred to be cartoon or graphics.
How System Works (Cartoon Graphics) Contains 3 pictures:
o The first picture: A guy comes in and selects a date to reserve a car. He then looks for different cars from different providers and thinks that the car prices are way cheaper than other possibilities in the market.
o The second picture: He then chooses the best option for himself and makes the pre-payment in order to guarantee his reservation. He gets a reservation code indicating also the place and date to pick up the car with contact information of the car provider. We should focus on the payment security here.
o The third picture: At the place and date / time of pick up, the guy meets with the car provider company. He makes the remaning payment and gets the car. He thinks that how easier could it be than this.
Get Started Button
Below the cartoon graphics (description of how the system works), there will be a get started button in the middle. After “Get started” button is pressed, 1st step is completed. Next step appears below as sliding div.

Because your designs are on specicific step ( e.g. search result) and each step are in seperate pages. I will select the winner but this design should include all 4 steps.

Could you combine the below 4 steps that you have already prepared and upload?

Thanks all, best regards...

4)search results with filters
