Turo in Queen Edith's

Turo arrives in Cambridge

The world’s largest car sharing marketplace arrives in Queen Edith’s. Share your car and typically earn over £500 per month.

What is Turo?

Turo is the world’s largest car sharing marketplace. Car owners share their cars when not using them, earning an average of £574 a month. Verified users can then book these cars, with the average Turo car being both cheaper and closer than existing traditional car rental solutions.

As part of Turo’s Cambridge launch, all Queen Edith’s residents will receive a bonus £100 once they list their car and complete their first trip on the platform.

The way we use cars in the UK needs to change

  • There are 38 million cars in the UK
  • Cars are idle 94% of the time
  • Parking spaces take up 15-30% of a typical urban area
