Who is eligible to use Getaround?

Drivers must be at least 19 years old to drive with Getaround, or 25 to drive specialty vehicles, and possess a license for a minimum of two years (Drivers under 21 must have a clean driving record). Drivers with more than two minor violations or at-fault accidents in the past three years, or a DUI/drug-related incident in the past seven years are not eligible to drive with Getaround.

How are renters verified?

Every Getaround driver must pass a thorough trust and safety screening to verify their identity, credit history, and clean driving record. Our process involves 17 points of reference including Facebook, and the Department of Motor Vehicles.

Is there a mileage limit?

Cars on Getaround have a daily base mileage (200 miles for normal vehicles, 100 miles for specialty vehicles). Additional mileage beyond the standard limits result in additional charges for the driver. If a renter exceeds their trip base mileage, owners will be reimbursed on a per mile basis.

Who maintains the cars?

Owners are responsible for keeping their vehicle well maintained and road-ready. Drivers are responsible for refueling their vehicle and returning it to the original location at the end of a trip.
