Our insurance program provides auto insurance to cover renters and vehicles that meet our membership eligibility requirements.

Renters are covered in our insurance policy up to the liability limits carried by the vehicle owner or with a combined single limit of three times the state minimum, whichever is greater. Car owners are covered up to a combined single limit of $1,000,000 for liability. Car owners who live in either California or Oregon and carry a liability limit in excess of $1,000,000 are not eligible for Getaround at this time. Coverage includes personal liability for the renter, third-party liability for passengers and other affected parties, and third-party property damage arising from a car accident.

Getaround is a peer-to-peer car rental marketplace. The insurance coverage provided is similar to a personal auto policy, however, this policy has some unique exclusions specific to our model:
Wear and Tear
Coverage is provided to owners for excessive wear and tear to their car by a renter. We do not insure for normal wear and tear. The car owner is responsible for normal car upkeep as all cars experience reasonable wear and tear with usage. In the event of excessive wear or damage caused by abuse or neglect, the renter is subject to penalties up to the limits of the insurance deductible outlined above. For more information, see our wear and tear guidelines. These are guidelines only and all claims are assessed on a case-by-case basis.
Personal belongings left in the car are not insured. These include tapes, records, discs or other similar audio, visual or data electronic devices, or any speed measuring equipment within the vehicle. It is the responsibility of the owner and renter to ensure they remove any personal belongings from the car before and after each rental.
No Permissive Drivers
We provide insurance for our members only. As per Getaround's Terms of Service, Getaround cars may only to be operated by the renter of the car.
Personal Usage Only
Insurance coverage applies to cars rented for personal use only. Cars rented for commercial purposes, organized racing, or stunting activity are not covered.
Owner's Personal Auto Policy
By signing up with Getaround, Owners understand and acknowledge that their own personal auto insurance policy may not provide coverage for the owner or the owner's vehicle while the vehicle is being rented as part of the Getaround program. Coverage under Getaround's insurance program shall be primary to an Owner's personal auto insurance policy.
