Your car is a big investment that requires quite a bit of love. You have to keep it running smoothly and that costs money. Luckily, you can use your car to help get some of that money back and offset your monthly payments or insurance costs.
One option to make money with your car is with Getaround. It's a service that lets regular people like you and me rent a car from regular people like you and me who have a car and want to make some extra money. Think of it as the Airbnb of car rentals.
With the Getaround app, you can rent a car for an hour or two, the whole day or even the week. Prices vary, but you'll find that it's cheaper than going through a rental company.
Download the app to get started, search for cars, find a match and send your request. Better yet, you don't need to meet up with the owner because the Getaround app will give you access to the vehicle.
Getaround performs background checks on renters and provides insurance so you don't need to worry.
There is a catch, however. Not all cities in the country are connected with Getaround. It's currently available in San Francisco; Oakland, California; Berkeley, California; Portland, Oregon; Chicago; Evanston, Illinois; Washington, D.C.; Arlington, Virginia; Alexandria, Virginia; Bethesda, Maryland and Silver Spring, Maryland.
