Tips for writing a great car description
The best car descriptions are personal—they help the Guest get to know you and your car. Additionally, a carefully crafted, thoughtful car description will go a long way to influence your Guests to be responsible stewards for your vehicle.
Some things you may want to include in your car's description:
- Is your car 4WD or AWD?
- Does your car have in-car navigation or an infotainment system?
- Do you have a roof rack or bike rack that Guests can use?
- Is there a child seat in the vehicle?
- Is there a phone mount and a charging cable in the vehicle?
- Is the car equipped with first aid or emergency kit?
- Does your car have Bluetooth/AUX functionality or satellite radio?
If you have any special rules for your vehicle, your car’s description is the place to note them. Hosts should be aware that all new Getaround cars are by default not pet friendly, and you must check off “pet-friendly” on your car’s profile in order to opt-in as a pet-friendly vehicle.
Reminder: Getaround has a strict no-smoking policy for all vehicles and violators will incur smoking fees.
It's important to note that the details in your car's description are public-facing and visible by all Getaround users, so please don't share any sensitive personal information in this section of your profile.
