Turo, the world’s largest peer-to-peer car sharing marketplace, has selected Sling & Stone as its agency of record in Australia ahead of the company’s upcoming launch in the region.
As the pioneer in peer-to-peer car sharing, Turo is helping drive the global transition to a new world of mobility, which will make transportation more convenient, accessible, economical and fun. By sharing their personal vehicles on the platform, Turo hosts can not only offset the costs of car ownership but also seamlessly start and scale a small business.
Whether they’re flying in from afar or looking for a car down the street, searching for a rugged truck or something smooth and swanky for a once-in-a-lifetime event, guests can take the wheel of the perfect car for any occasion.
Tim Rossanis, Managing Director, Turo Australia
“We’re excited to provide local hosts with an entrepreneurial opportunity to supplement their income, while helping to meet the increasing demand from both Aussies and international visitors around the country. Turo plans to put the 20 million registered cars in Australia to better use and expand access for local car owners to a global network of guests. Sling & Stone’s agility working with startups and expertise working with large consumer brands founded in the US made them the right partner for us.”
Vuki Vujasinovic, Founder and CEO, Sling & Stone:
“Sling & Stone was created specifically to help ambitious brands that are shaping the future of how we live, work, and play. Turo is doing just that, and we’re honoured to have the responsibility of bringing this much-loved product to Australian shores.
Turo is here to bring back the sense of adventure that has been historically associated with road trips, long weekends, and holidays in Australia. Anyone who has tried to rent a car recently knows the uninspiring experience and outright hassle it is. Turo will change that and we’re excited to help Aussies find their perfect drive.”
