If damage occurs during your Getaround trip, you're required to pay the Damage Fee associated with the Protection Plan applied at checkout when you booked the trip.
Protection Plans provide Renters with additional options to reduce the potential Damage Fee amount you could be responsible for paying in case of damage.
At this time, Plus and Premium Protection Plans are available only for bookings originating in California, Colorado, Illinois and Pennsylvania. If you're booking in a market outside of these states, your trip will default to the Standard Protection Plan.
Standard: included with booking,
If the car is an exotic or Specialty vehicle with an MSRP over $75,000 or if the car is a classic vehicle more than 35 years old then a $2,500 Damage Fee applies, for which the renter is responsible. Getaround does not currently offer any additional Protection Plan options for Specialty cars beyond the Standard Plan which carries the $2,500 Damage Fee.

Extending your Trip
Any time that you extend your trip, if you selected a Plus or Premium Protection Plan option, you will pay an additional surcharge each time you extend your trip. This Protection Plan surcharge ensures that your trip extensions are covered by the same Protection Plan you selected at checkout, and you may not opt out or modify your selected Protection Plan once your trip has started.
What is covered by my Protection Plan?
The Protection Plan you select applies only to damage that might arise during your booking. Please visit Getaround's Insurance Summary for full coverage details.
The Protection Plan does not cover or apply to other trip incidentals that might arise during your trip, such as citations, impounding, lost keys, or fuel charges.
How much does a Protection Plan cost?
The Standard Protection Plan is included in the booking price at no additional charge.
Plus and Premium Protection Plan prices vary based on a variety of booking factors, and the price is displayed during the checkout process.
Can I apply a discount or promo code to my Protection Plan?
No, at this time discount/promotion codes cannot be applied to cover the cost of any Protection Plan.
Can I switch my Protection Plan after I've booked the trip?
If you'd like to switch to a different Protection Plan option after booking you'll need to cancel your trip and then rebook the trip, selecting your desired Protection Plan during checkout. You can only change your Protection Plan before your trip has started.
IMPORTANT: Once a trip has started, you may not modify or change your Protection Plan.
Can I decline a Protection Plan?
No, you may not decline a Protection Plan. However, you can select the Standard Plan at no additional charge (which carries a Damage Fee of $1000 in case of damage).
