Understanding the credit assessment

Article updated on 01/31/2023

Getaround conducts a credit assessment of all drivers. To pass, you need to have a minimum score of 10 out of 100. If your credit score is lower than 19 or your credit score is considered to be risky, you will not be able to rent cars on Getaround.

Getaround takes on a great responsibility when a rental agreement is made on the platform. We commit to collecting money for extra costs such as toll roads, extra kilometres, fuel, parking, etc. In addition, we are responsible for paying the deductible to the insurance company and later collect the money from the driver responsible for the damage. For this reason, we reserve the right to check the credit score of every driver.

NB: If you have a voluntary credit freeze, you need to remove it before we can do a new check. Bisnode does all of our credit checks. To remove your credit freeze please contact them at www.bisnode.com. Let us know when your freeze is removed so we can run a new check.

Due to privacy laws we can only see if you have passed or not passed our credit check. For questions regarding your credit score you can contact Bisnode directly.
