Example Rental Fee Calculations

Examples of Rental Fee Calculation   This provides a few typical examples of how BBay calculates the rental fee, so there is no mistake or doubt, no hidden charges.  Note that these calculations were done with the rental fees of previous years, not the current rates.  See above for BBay's current rates.
