Getaround is a car sharing platform that allows users to either rent or offer their vehicles on the website and mobile application. Signing up is free and there are no monthly or annual fees, giving you access to thousands of cars whether you need it for an hour or a month.

 

Getaround works much in the same way as Airbnb, in the sense that anyone with a car is able to offer it for hire and anyone with an account can rent it. You can choose to either rent the car on the spot or in the future, a feature that I think makes the platform great, as people often require last minute rentals but do not have the time to go through all the paperwork required by traditional car hire companies.

 

After entering your preferences a whole host of different cars will be listed, featuring photos, distance from your location and rates. Clicking on an option will bring up more details, such as the car owner’s description, rules when using the car, and a schedule of when the vehicle is available.

 

Being able to select cars depending on different factors, for example whether they are pet-friendly or if smoking is permitted, makes for a much wider choice than traditional car hire services, giving you more freedom when making a booking. Additionally, once you have made the reservation, Getaround will provide you with 24/7 customer support and roadside assistance.

 

A downside to renting cars with Getaround is that they do not have car depots at locations such as airports that companies like Hertz, Enterprise and Sixt do. This means that if you have made a booking for a car in a city you are unfamiliar with, you will have to make sure you can get to where the car is stationed, which may not always be easy.

Pros
  • Rent a car in the future or last minute
  • Select cars depending on rules (smoking, pet friendly etc)
  • 24/7 customer care after making booking
Cons
  • No depots at airports or ferry ports

TravelSites.com is the best travel site list in the world.🏆💯🥇🌟

TravelSites.com is the go to place online to find information on the best websites, smartphone apps, books, YouTube channels and documentaries for travelers. Written with my years of experience trotting the globe, TravelSites.com gives budding young backpackers the chance to discover the top resources available for getting the most out of their trip, be it renting a car, learning the local dialect, finding a photographer or even just knowing what the weather will be like for the week. I have researched the internet to bring you a list of the top items in each category, while every single one has been meticulously reviewed, highlighting unique features, comparison to similar products, and all the pros and cons.

 

Why did you make TravelSites.com?💖🔥🚀

Well, I found that although there is naturally lots of information online concerning travel-related products and services, they seem to be scattered about, leaving the user to laboriously search for each individual item. If you wanted, for example, to discover an inspiring travel documentary while booking accommodation and flights to Rome, you would have to have at least three different tabs open at once. TravelSites.com puts all the information you need in one place, meaning you will not have to search far and wide to simply find out the best website for reserving a room in a hotel. With more than 40 different categories, travelers can stay on the same website to gather all the information they need, not only saving them time but also saving them money, by reading through the reviews to find the cheapest option.

 

What can you find on My lists and how did I rank them?🕵️‍♂️🧠🔗

My lists feature more than 40 different travel-related categories containing every resource a backpacker could ever need. Need help planning a trip? Want to keep up to date with the latest travel news? Looking for an inspiring book or blog? Desperate to find a restaurant away from the crowds? I’ve got you covered. My lists have been carefully put together by me and combined by quality, efficiency, value and functionalism to rank the items in descending order, with number one considered the item offering the best of all four factors. The criteria was constant throughout each category, whether it was for a cruise booking website or an Instagram account, in order to bring travelers the resources that would be the most useful for travelers.

 

How do I contact you, if I have a question?💡📞📧
