How to change or override plugin templates?

Plugin template files can be found in the ‘/wp-content/plugins/car-rental/templates/’ directory.
You can edit these files in an upgrade-safe way using overrides. Copy them into a directory with your theme named ‘/bws-templates’.

Example: To override the ‘BWS Choose Car’ page template, please copy ‘/wp-content/plugins/car-rental/templates/page-choose-car.php’ to ‘wp-content/themes/your-theme/bws-templates/page-choose-car.php’.

Do not edit these files in the plugin’s core directly as they are overwritten during the upgrade process and any customizations will be lost.

This is a odd plugin. I tried a lot of time to manage on it. But it is not working. How dare is it to upload in this useless plugin? It is a totaly waste of time. I heartily dislike this plugin.

I had the free version of the Car Rental Plugin version and it worked perfect with me. Then they made so there is only 10 cars available in th plugin and then I had to buy the pro version. After I bought that it don't work at all and I have tried everything. Then I needed to buy their Renty theme which is compatible with the car rental plugin - and still no luck to get it to work. I have tried to contact them severelt times and they give me a standard answer that it work and it should work. Now I am desperetly waiting for them to help me and if not - then I am never using this plugin again.

I use this plugin on your website and I must say that this is one of the best plugins on rental cars. Besides it in the Russian language, which distinguishes this plugin from others. And looks on the website very well. Exceeded all my expectations. Normal technical support. I recommend, especially the PRO version. Использую этот плагин на своем сайте и должен сказать что это один из лучших плагинов по аренде автомобилей. К тому же он на русском языке, что выгодно отличает этот плагин от других. Да и смотрится на сайте очень хорошо. Превзошел все мои ожидания. Нормальная техническая поддержка. Рекомендую, особенно версию ПРО.
