Turo has launched its peer-to-peer car-sharing service in New York with the goal of enabling New Yorkers and tourists to book cars from local hosts in the state.

The company’s expansion into New York makes it the first and only car-sharing marketplace available in all 50 states.

To celebrate its nationwide expansion, Turo is offering limited-edition Hamptons weekend getaways for New York residents throughout July 2022.

“With summer travel ramping up, this couldn’t have come at a better time for both visitors heading to New York and New Yorkers looking to escape the summer heat and get out of town in the getaway car of their dreams,” said Andre Haddad, CEO and All-Star Host at Turo. “Bringing peer-to-peer car-sharing to the Empire State means bringing more choice to New York consumers, and we’re thrilled to bring Turo to more consumers and more destinations.”

New Yorkers looking to take advantage of the limited-edition offering can do so by spending just $50 per weekend ($25/day). The reservation offers access to a beach-ready car, beach essentials, and a luxury getaway, including a two-night stay at Ruschmeyer’s in Montauk and access to exclusive experiences such as private boat rides with Montauk Sail.

The company’s entry into New York follows the passing of a new law signed by the New York state legislature and Governor Kathy Hochul, which better defines the peer-to-peer car-sharing model and signifies the increasing acceptance of the industry among state governments across the country. The law goes into effect this month.

“Car sharing promises to be an important new part of our economy as it taps into our technological resources, and I believe it will further serve New York’s transportation needs,” said Hochul in a bill approval memo on December 22, 2021.

The offering is expected to help New Yorkers generate extra income by providing transportation opportunities to locals and travelers.
