I love driving these cars. One time, I stopped to fill up on gas before returning the car. The driver next to me said ‘wow, that’s a nice car, man!’ I just chuckled and thanked him … it was my car for that day at least!
We got to take my mother-in-law, from Sweden, up to Mt. Diablo to see all the wildflowers and especially the California poppies. It was a beautiful trip. The weather was perfect: blue skies, warm but not too hot. It had actually rained quite a bit that year so the hills were a deep vibrant green. The flowers were magnificent! Fields of yellow, red and purple. And, of course, huge rivers of bright brilliant orange California Poppies. It was one of the most beautiful days of our lives. She loved it. For a woman who has been to many places in the world she said it was one of the most beautiful.
I like the liberating feeling of not needing to own a car. I book Getaround cars five days a week for work, errands and day trips.
As a single mother with no car, you have helped me immensely. I am in my 4th rental, and hope to keep renting for some time. I hope you understand you're not only doing business, but you're contributing to so many lives by doing so.
Awesome car, great MPG, will probably rent again since we just moved here and are cruzing around looking for an apartment. Thanks!

"I've used other platforms in the past, but Getaround stood out the most because they charge hourly."
I live in Manhattan, so when I'm driving it's usually out of town to pursue my hobby of horseback riding and going to horse shows. One time, I dragged my boyfriend with me. He complained about the horse show but I did get the validation from him that I am a good driver since I loved driving the car we booked — so it was all worth it!
Carsharing with Getaround is a fantastic alternative if you only need a car sometimes.
I booked a car for 3 days and drove to Joshua Tree! It was the first time I saw my friends post-COVID. They flew out from the east coast to see me here in California. It was a very much-needed girls trip. We were blasting oldies (but goodies) on the car’s sound system all the way home ... the early 2000s bops like Brittany Spears and Spice Girls. It was amazing.
I don’t own a car right now, because I use Getaround for everything: It’s cheap, reliable, and has space for my kids.
