Welcome to our host community

Welcome to the host community

Your one-stop shop for resources, providing feedback, and knowledge sharing with fellow hosts.


Taking stock of our marketplace today and where we’re moving as a car-sharing platform and community, we have a quick announcement to make that we believe better aligns with the experience and value you provide by sharing on Getaround®. Going forward, we are delighted to announce that we will be addressing our (previously called) owners as hosts.

By democratizing access to cars and offering a true peer-to-peer (P2P) service, you have a direct impact on the car-sharing experience. You aren’t just owning car(s) — you’re caring for them and ensuring a safe and secure experience for your guests (formerly called renters). We are embracing the term guest(s) for the same reason; they aren’t receiving just an offering, they are partaking in an experience.

You may see these new terms, "hosts" and "guests," used interchangeably across our Getaround online presence during this transition. Thank you for bearing with us and for your continued support and commitment to excellence as hosts with us!

Getaround spotlight:


"Getaround has proven to be more than just a car sharing platform. I've seen how it's contactless capabilities are actually essential in providing safety and peace of mind to both myself and my renters, especially in this recent pandemic society. I love that the tech behind Getaround automates so much for me in my car sharing business so that I don’t have as much leg work to do manually."

“Getaround is always going to be important to me, no matter how much money I make elsewhere. Getaround is not my primary source of income since I am a CPA, but it's helpful and important to my goals. I use the money I earn to buy real estate — enables me to do things I could not without it.”
