As of July 2, 2019, all new and existing Getaround Owners may be eligible to receive various promotional payments or bonuses (“Promotions”) described on this page if they meet certain conditions described below. Each Promotion is available for a limited time only and requires the Owner to opt in for the promotion, either manually or automatically, as further specified below. The Promotions currently available to Owners are as follows:

The Go Time Guarantee

The Go Time Guarantee rewards Owners each month that their Cars’ calendars remain open on Getaround. An open Car calendar means that, on a given day, no calendar blocks have been added to it for the consecutive 14 days prior to the given day (even if subsequently removed), or the Car is reserved or has been booked through the Getaround platform. However, we know that Owners sometimes need to block Car calendars for maintenance, cleaning, personal use, and so on. Owners can continue to qualify for the Go Time Guarantee as long as calendar blocks are not placed on more than 1 weekend day / federal holiday plus 2 weekdays / non-holidays per month. These days may be (but don’t have to be) consecutive, such as Thursday through Saturday, or Sunday through Tuesday. Calendar blocks shorter than a full day (for example, 12 hours) count as one full day towards the monthly allowance.

The amount of each Go Time Guarantee depends on a number of factors, including the location of the Car eligible for the Promotion, the Car’s age, make, model, location and other characteristics, and the time of year during which the Promotion is being calculated. To see the amount of the Go Time Guarantee for their Cars, Owners may visit our Getaround guarantee calculator.

The Go Time Guarantee ensures that Owners whose Cars are opted in and meet the requirements of the Promotion will receive a minimum amount of earnings during a monthly earnings period. For example, if a Car is eligible for the Promotion in a given month but earns less than the Promotion amount for that month, the difference between the Promotion amount and the Car’s actual earnings will be added to the Owner’s monthly payout as outlined below. However, if a Car earns more than the Promotion amount in a given month, its Owner will not be issued the Promotion for that month. A monthly earnings period includes earnings from trips that end on or before 11:59 PM UTC of the last day of that month.

Here is how Owners can earn this Promotion:

  • Successfully add their Cars to Getaround, including passing Getaround’s onboarding safety inspection.
  • Ensure that their Cars are model year 2012 or newer, with fewer than 125,000 miles. 
  • Ensure that their Cars are free from any open or unresolved safety recall campaigns.
  • Ensure that their Cars meet all additional terms specified by our Getaround guarantee calculator and in any opt-in agreement between the Owner and Getaround.
  • Keep their Cars parked within a quarter-mile radius of their current, assigned home locations between trips on Getaround. Owners may, upon receipt of Getaround’s written approval, relocate their Cars’ assigned home locations to locations whose Go Time Guarantees exceed those offered by their Cars’ current home locations, provided that such Cars continue to meet the requirements of the Go Time Guarantee. For the purposes of earning the Go Time Guarantee, Owners may not relocate their Cars’ assigned home locations to locations whose Go Time Guarantees are lower than those offered by their Cars’ current home locations.
  • Enable predictive pricing for each Car with the Getaround-recommended default settings for minimum daily price and a minimum trip duration of 2 hours or less, without disabling predictive pricing for the Car or changing from the Getaround-recommended settings at any time.

The following exceptions will not affect a Car’s eligibility for the Go Time Guarantee:

  • The presence of recurring inaccessibility blocks on a Car’s calendar, which have been added by Getaround and which reflect events such as daily garage closures.
  • Any period of time during which a Car has been temporarily deactivated by Getaround because of an event that occurred during a Getaround trip which renders the Car inoperable. The amount of the Go Time Guarantee for a given month will be prorated according to the period of time during which the Car remains temporarily deactivated because of the event.
  • Up to two (2) Getaround trip cancellations initiated by (or at the request of) an Owner for each month.

Any of the following events will disqualify a Car from earning the Go Time Guarantee:

  • Calendar blocks of any length placed on more than 1 weekend day / federal holiday plus 2 weekdays per month.
  • Calendar blocks added and subsequently removed by Owners so as to circumvent the requirements of the Promotion.
  • Three (3) or more Getaround trip cancellations initiated by (or at the request of) an Owner, or any number of no-show events each month, unless the cancellations directly result from the Car’s temporary deactivation because of an event that occurred during a Getaround trip which rendered the Car inoperable.

The Go Time Guarantee for each eligible and opted in Car will be automatically calculated and included in the Car Owner’s monthly payout that immediately follows the month during which the Promotion was earned. For example, if a Car satisfies the requirements of the Go Time Guarantee for the month of July, the amount of the Promotion will be included in the Car Owner’s August payment.

For the month of July 2019 only, Cars may earn the Go Time Guarantee by satisfying the above requirements only from July 15 to July 31, even if the requirements aren’t satisfied anytime between July 2 and July 14. Accordingly, during the month of July, Cars will continue to qualify for the Go Time Guarantee as long as calendar blocks are not placed on more than 1 weekend day / federal holiday plus 1 weekday / non-holiday between July 15 and July 31. Calendar blocks shorter than a full day (for example, 12 hours) count as one full day towards the allowance.

For all other months, Cars must continuously satisfy the Go Time Guarantee requirements for the entire month to earn the Promotion. If a new Car is added to Getaround after the first day of the month, and the Car is eligible for the Go Time Guarantee for that month, the amount of the Promotion will be prorated according to the Car’s join date and the number of days in that month.


The Summer ‘19 Bonus

The Summer ‘19 Bonus provides an extra reward to Owners who earn the Go Time Guarantee in July, August, or September of 2019. To be eligible for the Summer ‘19 Bonus, a Car must: 1) satisfy all the eligibility requirements of the Go Time Guarantee, and 2) have a home location within a ZIP code specified by Getaround as being eligible for the Summer ‘19 Bonus. Owners may visit our Getaround guarantee calculator to check if their ZIP code qualifies for this bonus.

For the month of July 2019 only, Cars may earn the Summer ‘19 Bonus by satisfying the above requirements only from July 15 to July 31, even if the requirements aren’t satisfied anytime between July 2 and July 14. For August and September 2019, Cars must continuously satisfy the Go Time Guarantee requirements for the entire month to earn the Summer ‘19 Bonus. If a new Car is added to Getaround after July 15, August 1, or September 1 (as applicable), and the Car is otherwise eligible for the Summer ‘19 Bonus, the amount of the Promotion will be prorated according to the Car’s join date and the number of days in the month joined during which the Promotion requirements must be satisfied.

The Summer ‘19 Bonus will be awarded to eligible Owners even if those Owners don’t receive Promotion amounts because their monthly earnings exceed those amounts.


The Weekender Guarantee

For Owners who do not qualify or decide not to pursue the Go Time Guarantee, the Weekender Guarantee is an alternative Promotion with lower eligibility requirements and promotion amounts. The Weekender Guarantee rewards Owners who keep their Cars’ calendars open on Getaround for all 24 hours of each of at least 6 full weekend days or federal holidays per month. For example, July 2019 has 8 weekend days and one federal holiday. As long as a Car’s calendar is open for at least 6 of those 9 days, calendar blocks placed on the remaining 3 days in July 2019 won’t invalidate the Weekender Guarantee. An open Car calendar means that, on a given day, no calendar blocks have been added to it for the consecutive 14 days prior to the given day (even if subsequently removed), or the Car is reserved or has been booked through the Getaround platform.

The amount of each monthly Weekender Guarantee depends on a number of factors, including the location of the Car eligible for the Promotion, the Car’s age, make, model, location and other characteristics, and the time of year during which the Promotion is being calculated. To see the amount of the Weekender Guarantee for their Cars, Owners may visit our Getaround guarantee calculator.

The Weekender Guarantee ensures that Owners whose Cars are opted in and meet the requirements of the Promotion will receive a minimum amount of earnings during a monthly earnings period. For example, if a Car is eligible for the Promotion in a given month but earns less than the Promotion amount for that month, the difference between the Promotion amount and the Car’s actual earnings will be added to the Owner’s monthly payout as outlined below. However, if a Car earns more than the Promotion amount in a given month, its Owner will not be issued the Promotion for that month. A monthly earnings period includes earnings from trips that end on or before 11:59 PM UTC of the last day of that month.

Here is how Owners can earn this offer:

  • Successfully add their Cars to Getaround, including passing Getaround’s onboarding safety inspection.
  • Ensure that their Cars are model year 2012 or newer, with fewer than 125,000 miles.
  • Ensure that their Cars are free from any open or unresolved safety recall campaigns.
  • Ensure that their Cars meet all additional terms specified by our Getaround guarantee calculator and in any opt-in agreement between the Owner and Getaround.
  • Keep their Cars parked within a quarter-mile radius of their current, assigned home locations between trips on Getaround. Owners may, upon receipt of Getaround’s written approval, relocate their Cars’ assigned home locations to locations whose Weekender Guarantees exceed those offered by their Cars’ current home locations, provided that such Cars continue to meet the requirements of the Weekender Guarantee. For the purposes of earning the Weekender Guarantee, Owners may not relocate their Cars’ assigned home locations to locations whose Weekender Guarantees are lower than those offered by their Cars’ current home locations.
  • Enable predictive pricing for each Car with the Getaround-recommended default settings for minimum daily price and a minimum trip duration of 2 hours or less, without disabling predictive pricing for the Car or changing from the Getaround-recommended settings at any time.
  • Ensure that their Cars are available on Getaround for all 24 hours of each of at least 6 full weekend days or federal holidays per calendar month.

The following exceptions will not affect a Car’s eligibility for the Weekender Guarantee:

  • The presence of recurring inaccessibility blocks on a Car’s calendar, which have been added by Getaround and which reflect events such as daily garage closures.
  • Any period of time during which a Car has been temporarily deactivated by Getaround because of an event that occurred during a Getaround trip which renders the Car inoperable and which overlaps with a weekend day. The amount of the Weekender Guarantee for a given month will be prorated according to the period of time during which the Car remains temporarily deactivated during a weekend day.
  • One (1) Getaround trip cancellation initiated by (or at the request of) an Owner, occurring during a weekend day or holiday of each month.

Any of the following events will disqualify a Car from earning the Weekender Guarantee:

  • Calendar blocks of any length placed on more than 6 weekend days in a given month.
  • Calendar blocks added and subsequently removed by Owners so as to circumvent the requirements of the Promotion.
  • Two (2) or more Getaround trip cancellations initiated by (or at the request of) an Owner, or any no-show events, occurring during a weekend day of each month, unless the cancellations directly result from the Car’s temporary deactivation because of an event that occurred during a Getaround trip which renders the Car inoperable.

The Weekender Guarantee for each eligible and opted in Car will be automatically calculated and included in the Car Owner’s monthly payout that immediately follows the month during which the Promotion was earned. For example, if a Car satisfies the requirements of the Weekender Guarantee for the month of July, the amount of the Promotion will be included in the Car Owner’s August payment.

For the month of July 2019 only, Cars may earn the Weekender Guarantee by satisfying the above requirements only from July 15 to July 31, even if the requirements aren’t satisfied anytime between July 2 and July 14. Accordingly, during the month of July, Cars will continue to qualify for the Weekender Guarantee as long as calendar blocks are not placed on more than 3 weekend days / federal holidays between July 15 and July 31. Calendar blocks shorter than a full day (for example, 12 hours) count as one full day towards the allowance.

 For all other months, Cars must continuously satisfy the Weekender Guarantee requirements for the entire month to earn the Promotion. If a new Car is added to Getaround after the first day of a month, and the Car is eligible for the Weekender Guarantee for that month, the amount of the Promotion will be prorated according to the Car’s join date and the number of days in that month.

If a Car is opted in and eligible for both the Go Time Guarantee and the Weekender Guarantee, only the Go Time Guarantee will be awarded to its Owner. In addition, the relevant Promotion will be automatically applied each month, even if a different Promotion was earned the previous month. For example, if a Car earns the Go Time Guarantee in July and the Weekender Guarantee in August, and is eligible to earn the Go Time Guarantee again in September, the Go Time Guarantee will be automatically applied to the Owner’s September earnings.

As of July 2, 2019, both the Go Time Guarantee and the Weekender Guarantee replace and supersede any existing earnings guarantees that may have applied to Owners prior to that date. Neither the Go Time Guarantee nor the Weekender Guarantee can be combined with each other or with any other earnings guarantee unless stated otherwise on this page or in writing by Getaround.
