What are the insurance conditions?

The driver must meet certain conditions for the rental to be insured. It is also your responsibility to check that these conditions are met. The driver must:

1 . Meet the conditions regarding their age and the number of years they have held a driving licence for the category of car they are hiring (view conditions by category). To view the conditions for your vehicle, go to Your cars > Relevant car > View listing, then Conditions required by Getaround.

2 . Pay for the rental using a payment method in their own name.

3 . Both you and the driver must sign the rental agreement.

You are responsible for performing the checks detailed in the rental agreement in a thorough manner. This ensures that conditions 1 and 3 are met. If you do not perform these checks, you will not be covered by Getaround’s insurance or covered by Getaround’s income guarantee if there are any additional costs (compensation, penalty charge notices, etc.).

The driver must also:

4 . Remain in the permitted European countries (view country list).

5 . Not use the vehicle to transport people or goods for commercial purposes (only car-sharing, with the costs being shared, is permitted).

6 . Remain the main driver of the vehicle throughout the rental. The driver may not therefore hire a vehicle for use by another person.

You must cancel the rental if you know that conditions 4 to 6 will not be respected. However, if you are misled by a driver who does not respect all these conditions, the driver will be responsible for all costs in the event of an incident.
