In addition, Getaround provides insurance for the vehicles and equips each auto with a remotely-operated unlocking system, ensuring that "buyers" and "sellers" never have to meet face-to-face to exchange keys. For its work, Getaround collects 30 percent of rental fees, which can vary from $4 per hour for a basic compact model to $10 per hour for a Toyota Prius and currently tops out at $25 per hour for a Tesla Roadster. Since launching last month, nearly 1,000 people have joined Getaround. One of the first to get in on the peer-to-peer action was Jessica Scorpio, a co-founder of the company, and she shares her Tesla Roadster with other Getaround members.
