CEMENTING OUR POSITION AS THE UK LEADER IN PEER-TO-PEER CAR SHARING

Today, I’m incredibly excited to announce that Turo has agreed to take on the users of Britain’s easyCar Club, the leading peer-to-peer car sharing marketplace in the United Kingdom. This partnership not only brings the entire fleet of seasoned easyCar Club hosts and guests to the Turo family, but also represents a massive step in cementing Turo’s position as the UK market leader in peer-to-peer car sharing.

Fueled by our unwavering mission to put the world’s one billion-plus cars to better use, this partnership reflects our commitment to building a world-class car sharing marketplace and a truly global community of people who share our mission and vision that wherever in the world you are, you can find the perfect vehicle for your next adventure from a trusted Turo host.

easyCar Club represented an innovative venture by the esteemed EasyGroup — parent company to budget airline juggernaut, easyJet — and we’re deeply honored that the EasyGroup leadership trusted Turo to take up their mantle, citing our robust community and global car sharing options for their member-base as key differentiators.

Turo has been doubling in size each year, with a keen eye on expansion and growth. Just last year, Turo expanded to Germany and then in September, in partnership with Allianz, we launched our peer-to-peer marketplace in the UK with resounding success. In those few short months since launch, Turo has seen more than 1,000 cars listed by private British car owners, and over 75,000 users in the UK market. By bolstering the Turo community in the UK with the easyCar Club community, Turo offers ample opportunity beyond traditional car rental in terms of selection, value, and accessibility for Britons across the country, as well as the economic opportunity afforded to car owners who were previously tethered to an expensive, constantly depreciating asset.

To the easyCar Club community

Welcome to the Turo family! We’re so thrilled to have you join us on this journey, and to bring value to your lives however we can. Whether you’re a car owner with steep monthly payments or a weekend warrior in need of some wheels to escape the city grind, we hope you’ll find Turo helpful in your daily lives.

To sweeten the deal for joining the Turo community, Turo will match easyCar hosts’ first £100 they earn, and guests will receive £30 in Turo travel credit to use toward their first trip.*

We couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome the easyCar Club community to the global Turo community, and we look forward to exploring the hills and dales of the lush British countryside with you.
