Getaround is an online car sharing or peer-to-peer carsharing service that allows drivers to rent cars from private car owners, and owners to rent out their cars for payment.
The Getaround app and GetaroundConnect device installed in the car have been used by thieves to steal Getaround cars. Thieves use the app to locate cars and are able to easily remove the device under the steering wheel. Getaround does not take responsibility for these thefts and shifts the burden onto owners. Similarly, Getaround's failing business model has caused major delays (upwards of two months) in responding to renter accidents and avoiding paying loss-of-use compensation to owners.
GetAround is a unique service that provides peer-to-peer car sharing. Thousands of car owners provide their vehicles to be hired by GetAround members anytime, anywhere (limits set by car owners). Adding to the GetAround drawing is a convenient in-app booking method. Like ride-sharing companies, users' transactions are paperless and convenient.
