Petron Lakbay Alalay wants to give you a safer trip to your summer destination by offering free service check-ups from mid-March until the end of May.

The free 15-point service check-up is offered at participating Petron service stations and car care centers nationwide and is part of Petron's safety advocacy to help motorists prepare for safe, worry free travel. The free safety check, which covers tire pressure, oil and radiator water level, and brakes inspection, helps ensure that vehicles are roadworthy and in good running condition. No purchase is required to avail of these services, which is available to all motorists, absolutely free of charge.

Petron Lakbay Alalay's commitment to promoting road safety for everyone is assured with the assignment of a dedicated mechanic assigned to render the free vehicle check at all participating service stations nationwide. All you have to do is drive into one of the 118 stations displaying the Petron Lakbay Alalay Free Safety Check streamer. There are 48 participating stations in Metro Manila, 16 stations in northern Luzon, 10 stations in southern Luzon, 29 stations in the Visayas, and 15 stations in Mindanao.

In addition to the free safety checks, Petron volunteers and partner expressways will offer emergency roadside assistance in strategically-located Petron stations and base camps inside the major tollways including North Luzon Expressway (NLEX), Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX), South Luzon Expressway (SLEX), Star Tollway, and Coastal Road.
Petron employees and dealers have also signed up for selected "Weekends of Volunteerism" during the summer holidays as their way of reaching out to Filipino motorists and giving them the Petron service that they deserve.

Summer road-trippers will be pleasantly surprised with Petron's promo tie-up with the major tollways, billed as "Tollways Instant Win - Free Bunot". Every Sunday until the end of May 2011, customers who fill up with P1,000 worth of any Petron fuel gets a chance to win instant prizes such as Cool Air gum, Tiger biscuits, Magnolia water, Magnolia chocolait, and San Mig coffee. This promotion is further intensified during Holy Week as it becomes a daily activity in the participating stations.

Petron Lakbay Alalay is celebrating its silver anniversary this year and is the longest-running motorist assistance program in the country. Run by Petron employee-volunteers as part of the company's "volunteerism in action" philosophy, the pioneering public service activity has been replicated by other automotive and oil companies. The term Lakbay Alalay has, in fact, entered daily terminology as a generic term for various motorist assistance activities offering free mechanical help, communications support, medical services, clean restrooms and other services.
