For Filipinos, Lent is not just a time for penance and fasting, it also signals the start of the summer holiday season, with many families often taking advantage of the long Holy Week break to take a much-needed respite from the metro. This annual exodus to holiday destinations, whether you’re visiting relatives in the provinces or heading out to the beach, means that the expressways are often jampacked with all sorts of vehicles filled with all types of travelers.
The country’s longest running motorist assistance program is once again gearing up to deliver on its three-decades long tradition with a program of activities scheduled for this coming Holy Week break, with an expanded coverage to include major cities in the Visayas and Mindanao.
In the spirit of volunteerism, Petron employees are foregoing their Lenten holidays to man the Petron Lakbay Alalay sites, which will offer free safety check, free medical assistance, free 15-minute massage, and freebies from partners. Since 1986, Petron employee-volunteers have made sure that Filipino motorists from all walks of life can count on Petron Lakbay Alalay, “Kasama Mo Sa Biyahe!”
Petron offers one-stop convenience for travelers, where they can fuel up with Petron’s world-class fuels with Tri-Action Advantage, grab a bite from a wide variety of food outlets, and refresh themselves in clean rest rooms. Petron Value Card holders can take advantage of special offers such as freebies and discounts from Petron locators and partner-establishments.

Aside from these additional services, Petron helps to promote safe driving habits through their SEATBELTS SAVE LIVES campaign and HELMET ON, HEADLIGHT ON campaign.

Petron has over 2,000 strategically-located service stations nationwide to serve all your motoring needs. From the mega-stations with many convenience facilities and partner establishments located on the expressways, to the small micro-filling stations in remote, rural locations, you can count on having the Best Day @ Petron.
