Peer-to-peer carsharer Getaround has announced a new partnership with GO, a vehicle subscription provider. Through this agreement, hosts who list their vehicle on the Getaround platform now have rebate incentives from GO worth up to $1,200 per vehicle.
Every current and new Getaround carsharing host who signs up on GO is eligible for a per-car rebate equivalent to 100% of the first month’s subscription cost. Subsequent months are rebated monthly up to 50% off the subscription cost, paid out monthly until a maximum of $1,200 in total rebates is reached, according to the company.
“Getaround’s partnership with GO provides our hosts a huge cost savings opportunity and a great entry point to scale their carsharing businesses,” said Sy Fahimi, Getaround’s chief operating officer. “Bringing solutions to our hosts with partnerships like this strengthens our marketplace and will ultimately pave the way to entrepreneurship for hosts and make managing a fleet of carshare vehicles more accessible.”
For those looking to participate in the program, Getaround uses its technology to allow guests to unlock vehicles with its app. Hosts can manage rental reservations directly from their phone, removing the need to coordinate meeting up with drivers to pick up keys. Vehicles are covered by insurance during all active Getaround trips.
“GO provides drivers the simplest and cheapest way to get a high quality vehicle,” said Michael Beauchamp, CEO and founder at GO. “We’re excited to be working with another innovator in our industry – pushing the envelope to provide consumers a better price and experience. This partnership provides Getaround hosts access to premium, reliable vehicles at an affordable cost.”
