For the 8th day of Christmas JamieLeighTO.com gave to thee: two $25 credits for Hailo taxi service!
It’s hard to understand the consequences of drunk driving. They always seems so far removed; unless of course you come from a family whose lives have been affected by drunk driving. I come from one of those families. I lost my cousin almost 17 years ago to a drunk driver, and I couldn’t imagine driving if I even needed to question my sobriety. In fact, my personal rule is that I won’t drink at all if I have to drive after. I don’t know how each drink is going to affect me so I don’t risk it. I’m lucky to live in a large city with easy access to public transportation and taxis and I don’t need to drive very often, but unfortunately that just isn’t the reality for everyone, including people who live in the city too.
The holiday season can be even more tricky. Everyone is busy and might be enjoying a few extra wobbly pops to help with the seasonal stress or to celebrate. The good news: Hailo and Molson Coors have teamed up to get you home safely this holiday season by giving away $1,000,000 in free taxi rides! In a partnership praised by Toronto Police Services, Hailo and Molson Coors are distributing cards with promo codes to bars around the city. All you need to do is pick up a $10 Hailo card when you’re at one of the participating bars, enter the code in the Hailo app, and get home safely!
The Hailo app allows you to request a cab, see where they are on a map in real-time and how many minutes away your driver is. You can call your driver directly and see their name ahead of time, so there is a huge safety aspect of using the Hailo app. They are also the only licensed taxi app in the city! I like the fact that if I leave something in a Hailo I can easily contact my driver to retrieve it. I have used Hailo over 25 times since it’s launch in Toronto a few months ago and have always received excellent customer service from the friendly drivers. The app charges your credit card directly so you don’t have to worry about fumbling around for change at the end of your ride.
Enter to win one of two $25 credits for Hailo!
