Car sharing

Car sharing is a short-term car rental agreement where you pay by the hour and the rate includes your insurance. Below is an option in the Portland area.


Getaround is a unique option for car sharing because the company does not actually own any vehicles. Getaround provides opportunities for both car owners and car renters. Each person who owns a car can set up a profile to rent their car by the hour, for a rate that they determine. Due to the lack of inventory required, Getaround often offers the most inexpensive options for short-term rentals. Unlike the other options, the renter is responsible for filling the car up with gas before returning the car.
