When you say "book out" instead of "book", does it mean you have to make a signature to check out something? What's the function of "out"?
M : Do you want to have the freedom of having a car? Then the Wheels-to-Go Program is for you! If you are a citizen of Kensington City, you can join us. For a monthly membership fee, you may
borrow a car at any scheduled time, to use within the city area only. Cars may be booked out in 48-hour units by phoning or making online reservations, 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. Drivers will be required to
show a driverís license, as well as proof that they have the appropriate insurance
That's in relation to 'loaning' something under any terms. Not necessarily having anything to do with a signature.
'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.'
