Tips for getting more rentals

Article updated on 20/01/2023

1. Take good photos of your car

When drivers are looking for a car, the photos are the first thing they look at. The better the pictures, the more likely it is that someone will want to hire your car. Read our tips to find out how to improve the photos of your car. You should also consider adding a profile photo.

2. Select a fair price

A fair price is one that is consistent with the age and model of your car, as well as the time of year and the level of demand. If you are a new owner, start with a fairly low price to make it easier to get your first rentals and earn some positive reviews.

3. Describe your car

Give drivers as much detail as possible: exact model, general condition of the vehicle, cleanliness, any minor problems to flag up, options and accessories.

4. Update your calendar

Keep your calendar up to date to ensure you only receive requests when your vehicle is available. This will stop you being disturbed unnecessarily, and, more importantly, allow you to accept as many requests as possible, helping you move up the search results.

5. Respond quickly to requests

The quicker you respond, the higher your listing appears in the search results. To improve your response time, download the Getaround app if you haven’t already! This will let you respond to hire requests with a single tap.

6. Say YES to requests

A response is good, but a YES is even better! Your acceptance rate (number of positive responses out of the total requests received) plays an important role in ranking your listing in the search results. Read our tips for accepting as many requests as possible.

7. Specify your rental conditions

To avoid being disturbed regarding rental requests that don’t suit you, and to improve your positive response rate, set rental conditions for your car: rental duration (e.g. minimum 2-day hire) and booking limits (e.g. no last-minute requests).
