Hey guys I have been approved for a car rental affiliate program.

They have offered me the following:

"We can give you a booking engine in an iframe, or we can give you logos with the affiliate code included",

I understand how to implement the affiliate code but I really think a booking engine would be awesome. But what is an iframe and what do I do with it?

It's the same as embedding a YouTube video. You copy and paste the HTML into the Text tab (not the Visual tab) in your post or page. ~Marion

Hey Jason,

iframe - official definition http://www.w3schools.com/tags/tag_iframe.asp

Basically it is a web page inside a frame on your webpage. Allows your 2 display one page in another.
Setting up an iframe tag is pretty simple, just basically add the code where you want the iframe to be. Inside the iframe tag will be a link to another page which it will display inside the frame. Facebook use it heaps to section up their page.

Implementing is pretty much the same as inserting any other piece of HTML code.

Hope this helps.
Steve.

Would I be able to just drop the code on the text only part of a post of a custom sidebar without have to go into my theme editor? I always worry I will mess things up when I have to go to the editor.

Yea, should be able to, just use a text widget. The thing to make sure is that the inserted page size (iframe) fits where you want to put it otherwise the iframe will put scroll bars on which doesn't look good or worst, no scroll bars and cutoff part of the inserted page.
