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 Renters pay directly to Getaround. Each trip extension is processed as a new trip and is billed separately from the initial booking.
Renters have no monthly fees but are subject to the following fees when renting 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. This Booking Fee is charged to the Renter for the reservation of a Getaround car and is required for each trip and trip extension. Discount codes and promotions cannot be applied to the Booking Fee. The Booking Fee is a percentage of the Trip price or trip extension to which it applies.
Each Renter (including Renters enrolled in our Drive With Uber Program) will be charged a License Fee to cover the cost of driving record processing. This fee will be charged on all first-time bookings made on any new driver's license added to the Renter's Getaround account, or on initial bookings made after any change to the Renter's current driver's license has been detected..
Variable depending on Renter's state of licensure
Each Renter under the age of 25 will be charged an Under 25 Fee to cover the increased cost of insuring renters under the age of 25.

Where required by applicable law, state and local taxes are charged on a per-Trip basis to the cost of the reservation for the Trip, any extensions for the Trip, and the Booking Fee(s) for the Trip reservation and any extensions. The amount of tax applicable to a Trip is reflected in the confirmation for that Trip.
These accompanying fees are charges related to additional services provided by Getaround, and are designed to incentivize courteous and responsible carsharing among Members.
