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.
So, thank you for your continued support and commitment to excellence as a host with us.
To build, to learn, to share, and to grow alongside each other, with us supporting you as best we can along the way. This community is not intended to replace the other knowledge resources available to you — including our Host Help Center, email updates, and social media pages. Instead, we want to provide a one-stop shop to share knowledge and communicate directly with each other and our team. From expanding your business to optimizing your earnings and helping us improve our marketplace. Lean on us and your fellow hosts here.

We’re excited to welcome you to this shared space, where we would like to collaborate with you and other hosts in building this community together. Join us as we develop this page into a place where you can come to share, grow, and inspire each other (and us)! Our Host Community has been created to give hosts like you direct access to one another and to us.
