Enhance your car listing

Cars with great profiles get more rentals. Make yours great by uploading high quality photos and adding a detailed description.


You can upload up to ten exterior and interior photos of your car. Photos should prominently feature your well-lit and clean car, free of clutter and distractions.

Set availability

Rent your car when you want to. Set a repeating weekly schedule or use our robust calendar to block off days your car isn't available.


Take time to describe your car — mention benefits, extra features, the driving experience, and anything the renter should know.

Pickup instructions

Will be automatically sent privately after you have accepted a rental. Clearly explain pickup and return instructions with location and parking details.

Your car is insured at every turn

Getaround rentals are insured through our primary insurance policy. Coverage includes liability, collision, property damage, uninsured motorist protection, and theft.

Car insurance

All cars on Getaround include primary insurance during rentals which covers collision, liability, damage, theft, and more. You must have your own insurance outside of rentals on Getaround.

Insurance Card

We set expectations for renters and enforce policies including no pets, no smoking, mileage limits, and more.

Road bumps

From managing rentals to meeting renters, let us show you the ropes.

Rental requests

You have 8 hours to accept or decline incoming requests before they expire. We reward responsive owners by surfacing their cars higher in search results.


After you receive a request, you can message the renter through the site. Once you accept a rental, you can text, email or call the renter.

Make informed decisions

Feel free to ask renters the purpose of their trip before accepting requests. We provide renter insights and reviews so you can share with confidence.

Key handoff

If you meet the renter to handoff the car key at pickup time, clearly communicate any special requests and check the renter's license to confirm their identity.

Renter identity

We work with the DMV to check for good driver history as well as verify identity through Facebook, the credit bureau, and sixteen other points of reference.

Strong community

We have worked since day one to gather a community built on trust. We encourage honesty and respect between renter and owner as well as ratings and trip reviews.
