A car’s monthly earnings and rental volume are based on many factors including location, price, availability, and your car’s year, make, and model. We recommend following the best practices outlined below in order to optimize your car’s earnings.
Refine your car’s profile
- Write a detailed description for your car. Think of your car’s description as a mini-advertisement to your renters. What makes your car great to rent? Does your car have heated seats or an upgraded sound system? Mention it here.
- Provide comprehensive instructions to your renters. Let your renters know how to pick up and return your car. The easier it is for renters to access your car, the more frequently they’ll come back and rent again.
- Manage your car’s availability. Having an up-to-date calendar prevents last-minute cancellations, which leads to lost earnings and cancellation fees. Keep in mind that cars with high availability earn more.
- Consider renting a dedicated Getaround spot. Having a dedicated spot makes your car more attractive to renters by ensuring that your car is easy to find and has a dedicated home to which to return.
- Account for seasonality. Like the rest of the travel industry, Getaround also experiences seasonal fluctuations in demand. Consider lowering your car’s price during the winter to make the most of the cold, rainy season.
- Take care of your car. Renters love a clean, well-maintained car and will come back to rent again. A clean, well-maintained car helps to create a better relationship between you and you renters and sets the standard for how you’d like your car to be treated.
Optimize your car's price
- Price your car competitively. Use our search tool to do a quick search of the cars in your area and make sure your car’s hourly rate matches similar cars in your neighborhood. If you are in a city where Getaround's offers Cruise Control pricing, this is done by our algorithm on a daily basis.
