How do the price updates (fuel, distance) work on Getaround Connect?

For most vehicles equipped with Getaround Connect, you don’t have to request a price update for distance or fuel at the end of the rental – it’s all read by the Getaround Connect box, then calculated and updated automatically.

Is my vehicle compatible with automatic adjustments?

If your vehicle is compatible, you will have received an email from Getaround to let you know that adjustments will now be done automatically! Unfortunately, not all types of vehicle allow automatic detection of the fuel level, but we’re working on it! In this case, only the mileage adjustments will be done automatically. You can sign in to your account, go to the relevant rental page, then click on ‘Price update (fuel)’ to make a fuel adjustment.

How does the fuel work with auto adjustments?

If the driver doesn’t return your vehicle with the same level of fuel as it had at check-in, we calculate the difference and charge or refund the driver automatically, based on the size of the car's tank and a fixed price per liter:

In France

  • Petrol: 1,75€ per liter
  • Diesel: 1,65€ per liter

In Belgium

  • Petrol: 1,45€ per liter
  • Diesel: 1,50€ per liter

In Spain

  • Petrol: 1,40€ per liter
  • Diesel: 1,35€ per liter

In the UK

  • Petrol: 1,35£ per liter
  • Diesel: 1,44£ per liter

In Germany & Austria

  • Petrol: 1,50€ per liter
  • Diesel: 1,40€ per liter

These are based on the high end of the fuel market to make sure that you get compensated if the driver gives the car back with less fuel than at the start. The size of your tank is detected automatically. If you think it is incorrect please contact us.

Additionally, you will be be compensated 0,20€ per missing liter (0,20£ per missing liter in the UK) for the refill service. Please note that this compensation only applies to vehicles with automatic adjustments.

How is the driven distance adjusted?

If the driver travels further than the included distance, they are automatically charged for the additional kilometers based on the price per kilometer Getaround sets. And if they didn’t travel as far? Nothing changes – the unused kilometers are not refunded.
