Turo Partners With Michelin Guide, Offering Unique Dinner Experiences in Toronto and Vancouver
Turo is partnering with the Michelin Guide, to offer Canadian drivers a chance to book a peer-to-peer car and an unforgettable dinner experience via the ‘Drive to Table’ package.
Starting on October 13th, Canadian drivers can take part in the Drive to Table experience by booking one of the participating vehicles within Turo’s peer-to-peer car-sharing marketplace. A selection of vehicles handpicked by chefs representing Michelin-starred restaurants in Toronto and Vancouver will be made available.
By booking an eligible vehicle on Saturdays between October 28th and December 16th for a $250 one-day booking, drivers will be able to book a three-course meal for two from the following restaurants:
- Osteria Giulia (Toronto) – A sleek one-Michelin-Star Italian restaurant from Top Chef Canada runner-up Chef Rob Rossi is located in Toronto’s upscale Yorkville neighbourhood. End the evening with a one-night stay at The Hazelton Hotel, a 5-star boutique hotel.
- Quetzal (Toronto) – A high-style one-Michelin-Star Mexican restaurant near Toronto’s bustling Kensington Market is helmed by Chef Steven Molnar. End the evening with a one-night stay at The Hazelton Hotel, a 5-star boutique hotel.
