Semana Santa or more known as Holy Week, is upon us again, and almost all Filipinos are gearing up for long trips in the 5-day holiday, one of the longest in the Philippines. Travelers are also preparing their vehicles for the long road ahead. Of course minor engine troubles will be encountered even if well prepared. But there are “guardian angels” along the road.

In its continuing efforts to offer Filipino motorists “the best ang biyahe” experience, market leader Petron Corporation is once again activating the country’s longest-running motorist roadside assistance for the Holy Week holidays with Petron Lakbay Alalay pit stops at 11 stations in Luzon, and 6 stations in Visayas and Mindanao.

From April 17 to 21, groups of Petron employee-volunteers will be devoting their Holy Week break to offer emergency assistance to motorists with car problems like overheating, flat tires, and other car concerns.

Participating Petron service stations and Car Care Centers will offer free safety checks to ensure that vehicles are roadworthy and properly maintained. For those who might be feeling the physical effects of travel, a free 15-minute reinvigorating massage can be availed to ease those tired muscles and, if necessary, there is also free medical assistance. There will be fun road safety games with fun prizes while learning how to drive safely. Everyone can also enjoy freebies from Petron Lakbay Alalay partners.

The Petron Lakbay Alalay activations for Holy Week 2019 will be available on the following dates and venues.

Amid the fanfare and festivities, let us not forget the true meaning of the Lenten season. Stay safe.
