You may have already heard that Getaround has been making a success of hiring cars. Now some of you may wonder what is so different to these and the likes of Hertz etc? Well the main difference is that they offer a peer-to-peer service, so if you have a car that you do not use, then you can make it available for others. No other service would allow a Tesla Roadster rental for such a great price.

The Roadster is not the only high-end vehicle to be offered at a great price, you can also get to drive BMW’s etc. However, one would expect that the Tesla would be one of the more popular, as we can get to see how great of a car it really is. This new Start-up has been set up for two reasons, the first is obviously to make the owners money, and the second is not letting good cars go to waste.

We say this because a huge percentage of our cars spend most of their time outside our house or place of work. To us that does seem like a waste of money; just consider how much it has cost you to purchase your vehicle and how much work went into building it. Getaround hopes to solve this issue.

Could this finally be the start of something that could help get the economy back on track? More often than not people need to have the use of a car, but can never seem to find the one that they want. However, the biggest issue is with how long you would need a car for. More often than not a person only needs to hire a car for a few hours, but have to hire it for a day minimum. Well Getaround allows you to rent a car for an hour or longer at a time.

However, the longer the hire the cheaper it will work out in the long-term. Prices start at just $3 per hour, but that will not get you far with a Tesla Roadster, as that baby will cost you $50 per hour. However, that is much better than paying $109,000, which works out at 2,180 hours of rental or three months.

If you were lucky enough to buy a Roadster or any other new car, then why not let it earn money for you while it sits around all day. It is said that you could earn around $350 each month my just renting your car out for 15 hours per week. It will only take 1 minute to set up an account; it’s as easy as that so join here.
