Ensuring I'm eligible to rent

To rent a car on Getaround, you need to meet certain conditions so that your trips will be covered by insurance. You’ll be able to rent a car if you:

  • Have a valid driving licence for the country in which you’re renting, including the original document (copies or declarations of loss aren’t accepted). If you have a foreign licence, there may be additional requirements. More information here.

  • Meet the minimum age and years of licence conditions for the car you’re renting. Find the conditions per car category here.

  • Can pay for the rental with a credit card in your name. In Germany and Austria, you can also pay with your PayPal account. More information on accepted payment methods here.

To rent a car in the UK, you also need to:

  • Have an address in the United Kingdom

  • Have no more than 6 points on your licence (UK licence holders), no major driving convictions in the last 5 years, strictly less than 2 minor convictions, and no driving bans or disqualifications.

For renting in all countries, you must remember to:

  • Stay within certain European countries: full list here.

  • Be present for the check-in and the check-out.

  • Not use the car for commercial purposes, like taxi driving. You can, however, use the vehicle to carpool.

  • Verify your profile, if necessary.

If you rent a Getaround Connect car in any country, you’ll need to verify your profile and have your documents checked by Getaround before the rental starts.

In the UK, all profiles must be verified by Getaround before the first rental. In France, we’ll need to verify your profile if you rent a luxury or privilege car. In Belgium, Spain, Germany and Austria, we’ll need to verify your profile if you rent a privilege car.
