Did I choose the right plan?

This second graphic is based on one year of my personal Communauto usage. It uses the data of each car rental and calculates the hypothetical total cost for each of the existing plans. This calculation is based on the actual usage, which makes the calculation very precise. It also takes into consideration surcharges for "family vehicles" and weekend rentals. The fees also include any kind of penalties of booking fees for bookings over the phone.

It would be great to see this visualization as part of the Communauto member section. It could quickly inform each member if they should upgrade or downgrade to another plan.
