Hi Christian,

Actually, most of this can already by modeled by combining schema.org with

- http://purl.org/vso/ns for cars (sales, rental, etc.) and
- http://purl.org/tio/ns for transportation services and tickets.

I would be happy to work on incorporating part or all of this into the schema.org namespace so that I can be used without vocabulary mixing, but as said, you can do that as of today.

The basic principle of extending schema.org with those vocabularies is shown here:

http://wiki.goodrelations-vocabulary.org/Microdata (see Scenario 2) and

Note that the VSO vocabulary is the base for Volkswagen's massive publication of structured data about cars and their configuration options.
