Getaround Promo Code for $20 Off
Founded in 2009, I would best describe Getaround as the “Airbnb for automobiles.”. That means it’s a peer-to-peer carsharing service. Getaround allows those that are without cars to rent cars from owners, and vice versa; for owners to rent out their cars to those looking to borrow a car. Here’s a promo code for $20 off your first ride.
I’ve used their service a dozen times now and for the most part, it’s been a great experience. When in San Francisco, I usually rent a car using Getaround for approximately 5 hours to get out of the city, run errands, pick up groceries and to shop. I would say that I’m a power user: Here’s three tips to pay attention to if you’re going to use Getaround:
- Where You End Up: Don’t just think about the closest car near you when you rent, but also think about a location that’s near where you will end up being after the rental. You don’t want to be 25 minutes away from home (with shopping bags or groceries) after you park.
- Dedicated Parking: Getaround has dedicated parking spots in most of the cities they operate on. This is convenient feature
- Plan for Cushion: Whether it’s filling up the tank, taking photos of the car beforehand or looking for parking, give yourself time to pick up and drop off the car before your ride starts/ends.
Here’s a post with more tips for using Getaround efficiently and smoothly. So, what’s the difference between Getaround and ride share companies like Uber and Lyft? Basically, it’s who is driving the car — with Getaround, the customer is the driver of the car while with ride shares, the owner is the driver.
