Have job offers from both companies; wondering what the community feels on each companies' growth potential. They seem to be pretty similar business model-wise but have Softbank investing heavily in Getaround and Daimler in Turo.
Turo is in a lot more markets but Getaround is ahead tech wise. Turo has a bigger app download stats and Getaround only recently launched their Android app?
1) the business models are actually fairly different. Getaround focuses in on short term rentals (hourly mostly) and Turo focuses on longer term rentals (days, months, etc). As a result, Getaround has higher transaction counts than Turo, but I would find it hard to believe that their average transaction value is even close. Turo actually started off with Getaround’s model years ago, but scrapped it (look up the history of RelayRides
2) Getaround has that SoftBank money which is great for hiring and resources (new offices, new perks, etc). Turo had a great Series D. Depends on how important you think SoftBank is in picking winners and losers as well as your confidence in the CEO. I’d look up blog posts and interviews with both Sam and Andre.
