Getaway will loan it out for you and possibly bring in some hefty change. Getaround is like Airbnb for cars. Register your car on the site, decide pricing and rent it out when you’re not using it. This not only helps car owners reel-in money, but could positively impact the environment by taking new cars off the road. Read the full story at Mashable.
