Understanding the mileage allowance

Article updated on 07/28/2021

The included mileage depends on the length of your rental. You can increase your mileage allowance by buying a mileage package when you book the rental.

There’s no limit to how many kilometres or miles you can drive during your rental. If you exceed your mileage allowance (the sum of the included mileage and mileage package if you bought one), you’ll pay for the extra kilometres/miles at the end of the rental.

Included mileage

Duration Included mileage
1 hour 40 km
2 hours - 8 hours + 20 km per hour
1 day (from 9 hours) 200 km
2 days 400 km
3 days 600 km
4 days 800 km
5 days 1000 km
6 days 1100 km
7 days 1200 km
8 days 1300 km
9 days 1400 km
10 days 1500 km
11 days 1600 km
12 days 1700 km
13 days 1800 km
14 days 1900 km
15 days - 30 days 2000 km

If you extend your rental, the included mileage for your rental will increase automatically.

Mileage packages and adjustments

If you plan to drive further than the included mileage for your rental, add a mileage package when booking to increase your mileage allowance. You can’t buy a mileage package after you’ve booked your rental.

The size of each mileage package depends on the duration of your rental:

Duration Size of each mileage package
1 hour - 1 day 20 km
2 - 5 days 50 km
6 - 30 days 100 km

If you exceed your mileage allowance (the sum of the included mileage and mileage package if you bought one), you’ll pay for the extra kilometres/miles at the end of the rental. For rentals with Getaround Connect, this is done automatically. For rentals without Getaround Connect, you’ll decide with the owner whether to pay for the extra kilometres/miles via the Getaround app or directly in cash.

The price per extra km or mile for mileage packages and adjustments depends on the car category:

France and Belgium:

Comfort 0.18€ per km 0.36€ per km
Premium 0.24€ per km 0.48€ per km
Luxe (France only) 0.51€ per km 1.02€ per km

UK:

For example: You rent a car for two days. You have 400 km included and decided to increase your mileage to 500 km by buying a mileage package, but you end up driving 523 km. After your trip, you’ll be charged for the extra 23 km driven, according to the price set by Getaround.

If the distance you drive is less than your mileage allowance, you won’t be refunded for the unused kilometres or miles.
