We're building a safe and trusted car sharing community. The fees outlined below are meant to encourage the growth and success of a happy community and discourage any irresponsible behavior. When small issues do arise, it's always best if Members can work them out between themselves. However, if you see anything that looks particularly wrong, please contact us.
Standard Fees compensate Getaround for the services provided in operating the platform and facilitating trips, including maintaining insurance coverage for trips, providing 24/7 roadside assistance, and running our site, hardware, and applications. These fees are in addition to the hourly, daily, and/or weekly rate of the car. Getaround currently charges a 40% commission on all trips booked, which commission is applied to the initial reservation price and any trip extensions, and which Guests pay directly to Getaround. Each trip extension is processed as a new trip and is billed separately from the initial booking.
Guests have no monthly fees but are subject to the following fees when reserving cars on Getaround:
A Booking Fee will be charged for every Trip and trip extension, as reflected in the trip confirmation screen and documented in the itemized trip receipt.

The Booking Fee is a percentage of the Trip price or trip extension to which it applies.
