All cars on Getaround have a mileage cap. When you rent a Getaround car, you're paying the Owner for a limited amount of mileage and use of the car. Excessive use and mileage during your trip causes additional wear on the car's body and engine, resulting in more maintenance expenses for the Owner and additional insurance risk for Getaround. We have a mileage cap and associated mileage fees for exceeding hourly and daily mileage limits to mitigate some of these risks and additional costs.
In standard cars, you receive an allotment of 20 miles per hour for every hour of your trip, up to a daily total of 200 miles per 24-hour period. For example, if your trip in a standard car is 3 full days long, then you can drive up to 600 miles in total. This means that you could drive 300 miles on the first day, and 300 miles on the third day, so long as the trip total is less than 600 miles.
For all miles you travel over your mileage allotment in a standard car, there is a $0.50 per-mile charge.
Specialty or Exotic Cars
Specialty and exotic cars have significantly higher costs of insurance, ownership, and maintenance than standard cars. We have a different mileage policy and fee to help cover the substantially increased maintenance costs and insurance risks associated with specialty vehicles.
In specialty or exotic cars, you receive an allotment of 10 miles per hour for every hour of your trip, up to a daily total of 100 miles per 24-hour period. For example, if your trip in a specialty car is 3 hours, then you can drive up to 30 miles in total. If your trip is 3 full days, then you can drive up to 300 miles in total during your trip.
For all miles you travel over your mileage allotment in a specialty car, there is a $5.00 per-mile charge.
