The country honors our heroes with a public holiday every last Monday of August which, for this year, falls on August 27. This long weekend is a welcome break for urban dwellers, and presents an opportunity to take a quick road trip to nearby holiday destinations.
Living up to its three-decade tradition of providing roadside assistance, Petron employee volunteers will once again be providing motorists with “the best ang biyahe” through the activation of Lakbay Alalay from August 24 to 27.
A Petron Lakbay Alalay pit stop offers free car safety checks to ensure that your vehicle is roadworthy and will take you to your destination safely. Motorists are advised to always check their BLOWBAG—battery, lights, oil, water, brakes, air (tire pressure), and gas. There is free medical assistance in case someone is feeling a bit under the weather or needs emergency care. Drivers who need to ease their tired muscles after long hours of driving can avail of a free 15-minute massage. There are also road safety activities as well as freebies from other brand partners. And at Petron, you can freshen up in clean rest rooms.
To serve the National Heroes Day motorists, there will be Petron Lakbay Alalay activations on Friday, August 24, from 12NN to 8PM, and on Saturday, August 25, from 4AM to 5PM at the following Petron service stations:
- North Luzon: PEC1 NLEX, Marilao Bulacan; Parkville Km 42 Plaridel, Bulacan; Lakeshore NLEX, Mexico, Pampanga; and TPLEX Km 134 Northbound, Pura, Tarlac.
