THE GETAROUND POWER HOST PROGRAM
Getaround® is leading the way. With increased demand, car sharing has stimulated a new wave of entrepreneur hosts. Our technology makes starting a car sharing business more accessible to entrepreneurs just like you.
Car sharing is a transportation option where guests book cars shared by hosts for short trips, errands, appointments, commuting, and other mobility requirements. While most car sharing guests use cars for a few hours, bookings by the day are available as well. Car sharing is not the same as car rental. Most car rental agencies rent cars they own or lease, usually by the day or longer.
Getaround embraces and promotes the sharing economy by offering a marketplace of vehicles shared by third-party hosts to provide on-demand mobility for people who do not otherwise have access to cars. Hosts list their cars for sharing, and using our app, guests can easily find, book, and unlock the type of vehicle they need when they need it.
“Car Sharing Market size exceeded USD 2.5 billion in 2019 and is poised to grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate of over 24% between 2020 and 2026.”
