Can I cancel my usual insurance policy if my car is only used for hire?

No, your vehicle must be covered by an annual insurance policy (with third-party cover as a minimum), in addition to the insurance offered by Getaround. If the authorities carry out a check, the driver will have to provide them with a copy of your insurance certificate. Parking/garage-type insurance is not accepted.

We advise checking with your insurance providers before listing your car on Getaround to ensure your policy allows car sharing. If an event does occur with your car during a rental, our comprehensive insurance with Allianz will cover your claim. You can read up on our claims process here.
