How do I extend a trip?

If you're running late, be sure to extend your trip via the Getaround mobile app (iOS or Android) or by logging into your account at It is important you're always in an active trip, otherwise you won't be covered by our Insurance policy! If there are no other conflicts, you can extend your trip up to six hours after your trip ends, just in case you forget.

If you're unable to extend your trip (i.e. the owner or car is unavailable, you have insufficient funds on your payment method, or there is a upcoming trip), you must return the car at the originally scheduled end time.

Please note that all trip extensions are billed as new trips (on an hourly or daily basis — when available).

On cars that offer a daily rate if you've already hit the daily rate, you will not be able to extend for free. If you are extending for a period long enough to hit the daily rate again, you'll only be billed the daily rate.
