Getaround

Getaround provides a peer-to-peer carsharing marketplace that enables car owners to rent their cars - from Priuses to Teslas - to a community of trusted drivers by hour, day, or week using just their smartphones.

Car owners invest huge amounts of time and money into an asset they barely use. The average car is idle 92% of the time, while potential drivers walk past block after block of underutilized cars. We are here to connect the dots… to help people get around.

We enable car owners to safely rent out their underutilized wagons to a community of trusted drivers. People in need of a car can rent one by the hour, day, or week using the Getaround website or their smartphone.

Imagine a world with fewer cars, without traffic jams, and with less pollution. We are a team of successful entrepreneurs, hackers, and business people passionate about using mobile technology to create sustainable e-commerce solutions. We want to empower people to travel more efficiently and cause a shift from personal to shared transport.
