Even after a vomitous experiene with RelayRides, I was determined to see if I could rent my car. That seems like a better option than getting rid of it or letting it sit in the driveway.
I checked out GetAround. Looks like they’re cooking up some interesting things. I started by emailing customer support my usual questions about insurance and liability.
Customer support emailed back quickly that I had some questions that would need more attention than the usual service requests, and to please give them some time to track down the answers. Sure! I just want answers.
About 2 days later, I got a lovely and thorough email with answers to my questions. In short, GetAround was able to tell me in writing how I shouldn’t have any liability or financial risk other than “normal wear and tear” of someone driving my car. They explained their insurance and how if someone sues for $15M, the State of California ultimately holds the renter liable (not me).
So I put my car on GetAround. Visiting SF and need a great car in great condition? Rent mine! 🙂
