With domestic tourism on the rise, more and more Filipino families are taking holiday road trips all over the country. Now celebrating its 30th year, Petron Lakbay Alalay has developed into a year-round road safety program and customer service advocacy to ensure safer, worry-free travel for everyone.

Marking its 30th year milestone as the country’s pioneer motorist assistance program, Petron employees will launch the Lakbay Alalay Volunteerism campaign on March 26 & 27, 2015. On-site and digital initiatives will also be undertaken to engage motorists to pledge for road safety.

For the coming Holy Week break, identified pit stops along the major expressways—NLEX, Lakeshore, SLEX, TPLEX, and STAR Tollway—will offer various activities on April 1 & 2, and April 4 & 5, 2015. The expanded Petron Lakbay Alalay program will include services such as: free safety check for 2-wheel and 4-wheel vehicles; free medical assistance; free 15-minute massage; free food and drinks; a Kiddie Corner; freebies and games from partners; parking assistance; and free Wi-Fi and free cellphone charging area.
