From Our Editors
An innovative service featured by the likes of CNN, the Wall Street Journal, and the New York Times, Getaround puts you in someone else's driver's seat. Thousands of users with available vehicles list them on the site for nearby renters to browse and borrow through the Getaround mobile app—which can even unlock most vehicles, making impulsive getaways easy. In addition to providing more flexibility and convenience than most standard rental agencies or sharing services, another benefit of Getaround's model is access to a wide variety of exciting rides: luxury cars such as BMWs and Porsches join a loose-knit fleet that also includes Priuses, Teslas, and Smart cars. Full insurance coverage protects both drivers and renters, and round-the-clock roadside assistance provides a dependable safety net in case a car has an acute attack of homesickness mid-trip.
