The Getaround app lets you rent out your car to others, whom may be near-by. Why let your unused car go to waste, when instead with this peer-to-peer car sharing service you can rent it out and earn some extra cash to those in your local area.
Coming with insurance and a rate of $4 – $25 depending on the car, Getaround also comes with a car kit to let users unlock and start cars using their iPhone. Currently still in testing, but the service could develop into something much greater for not only peer-to-peer services but even nation wide car rental retailers.
With a simple 3 step process, you launch your Getaround App, search for nearby car listings available for rent, request the car you want, and then unlock the car using your iPhone. A seamless approach for you to get your hands behind a wheel, without the troublesome meddling of a middleman trying to rent out your vehicle, so you can sit back and count the cash.
