'Out' refers to the time frame.
You don't normally say 'book out' it's usually 'booked out'. 'Book' is slightly different.
'I will book the car.'
'The agent says the car is booked.'
'The agent says the car is booked out.' - Usually refers to no cars available/no time available.
'The agent says we have the car booked out for 48 hours.'
I'm not a teacher yet, but I am studying a Bachelor of Education with an English Literature major at Charles Sturt University, in NSW, Australia.
