Traffic is a huge problem during December in Lebanon and more specifically inside Beirut, and it’s almost impossible to find a parking spot inside malls like ABC Achrafieh & Dbayyeh, Citymall, Beirut Souks or even around them especially when Christmas is few days ago. That’s why I personally try to finish all my Christmas shopping as early as possible but finding a parking spot is always a hassle.
I’m always supportive of initiatives that reduce Christmas traffic and Virgin Megastore has just kicked off a very cool campaign offering free taxi rides with Allo Taxi to all customers who will purchase for an amount of $50.
All you have to do is the following:
– Order an Allo Taxi cab (Call 1213 or use their mobile app).
– Pay the taxi driver, get a receipt and present it at Virgin Megastore shops where you will get reimbursed for the full amount and given a “free ride”coupon back home upon purchasing for $50 or more.
So if you want to buy a gift from Virgin DownTown or usually shop at ABC for Christmas, you can order a taxi get everything you need, and enjoy a free ride back home without driving in traffic or worrying about finding a parking spot. The Free Taxi Ride Service is limited to 25,000 LL per way to any location withing Greater Beirut Region. If you live far away, you only need to pay the difference which is fair enough.
PS: You can call Virgin Megastore Lebanon for more details.
