Why does Getaround need my billing information?

Every country has its own laws when it comes to paying out funds to individuals and companies. These are typically known as “Know Your Customer” (KYC) regulations.

KYC regulations require Getaround to collect and maintain information on all owners renting on Getaround. These requirements are intended to prevent abuse of the financial system.

For this reason, Getaround and its payment partner will need to:

  • Collect information about the individual or company receiving funds
  • Verify the information is accurate

To fulfill this requirement, you just need to fill in the information on our platform in Your account > Payment settings. We will then provide this information to our payment provider Stripe, who will verify it.

This may include personal information and a scan of a proof of identity. We may also reach out periodically to confirm that information on your account is still accurate.

We take privacy and security very seriously. Our Privacy Policy explains how and for what purposes we collect, use, retain, disclose, and safeguard any personal data you provide to us.
