Why let an unused car gather dust when you can rent it out with the Getaround app. The Getaround app is a peer-to-peer car sharing service that removes the middleman and lets you rent cars from people living in your area.

The Getaround app offers rates varying from $4-$25 an hour depending on the car. Getaround has insurance covered and also includes a car kit that lets users unlock and start cars using their iPhone. The app is currently beta testing in San Francisco with no set timetable for release.
