A major client can manage the whole vehicle fleet of the company, his/ her main and sub-users can simultaneously log in the system. The major client environment enables to enter data of all the company’s vehicles, trailers and drivers and later, when making a reservation, select them from a pull-down menu. A major client can see all the reservations made for the vehicles and can make changes allowed by the system, if necessary. A major client can see the history of border crossings and payments and cancelled reservations of all the company's vehicles.

Reservations can be made only after money has been transferred on the prepayment account.

One reservation allows to make changes not more than 3 times and not later than 3 hours before the reservation time. 

 

18. How to make a reservation for D category vehicles?

Currently, pre-reservation cannot be made for vehicles of D category in Narva. As passenger coaches are allowed to drive directly to border crossing, then by taking their timetables into account, it may happen that 2 or more busses reach there at a time. This is the maximum vehicle-handling capacity of a border per one hour. Thus, we cannot guarantee that a vehicle of D category not performing regular carriage of passengers and with a pre-reservation can get to the border at a promised time. D category vehicles can reserve a place in the living queue or they can go to Narva waiting area and make a reservation there. According to the situation on the border, busses are called from there for border crossing at the first possibility. 

 

It is possible to make pre-reservations for D category vehicles in Koidula and Luhamaa. 

 

NB! Queue is followed separately as to different vehicle categories. Busses are not affected by passenger cars and trucks. 

 

19. What is a prepayment account and how to use that?

Prepayment account is for registered users and it gives the major clients a possibility to pay money on the prepayment account and use it for ordering reservations and additional services. When using the prepayment account for paying for GoSwift services, no additional service fees of banks or mobile phone operators will be added. The order can be registered quicker as well because you do not need to make a bank transfer. 

 

Money can be transferred on the prepayment account by a user who has logged in either on "My profile" page or by adding the prepayment package on the page where additional services of reservation can be ordered. 

 

Balance of the prepayment account can be followed on "My profile" page and also in the shopping cart when making a reservation.
