Make Travel Easier This Summer with Turo

Sharing economy and travel industry pioneer, Turo, is an innovative car sharing marketplace in the UK which set out to revolutionise the local car hire industry. With reduced trains and major network rail strikes already causing pre-Christmas chaos, Turo’s launch is timely, offering Brits a unique alternative to their traditional transportation options.

Turo’s convenience and extraordinary selection of unique vehicles for rent at a variety of price points makes the service stand out from traditional car hire players.
