Carshare to Reading
Awesome news! BlaBlaCar has teamed up with Festival Republic to bring an entirely new travel experience to all festival fans this summer! Carshare to Reading with other festival goers and win amazing prizes and festival perks!
UPDATE - 20/08/2014!
PRIORITY PARKING PASSES HAVE NOW ALL BEEN SENT OUT. ANY RIDES OFFERED AFTER 6PM WEDNESDAY (THE OFFICIAL START TIME OF THE FESTIVAL) WILL NOT RECEIVE A PRIORITY PARKING PASS
With BlaBlaCar festival fun starts on the road!
Drivers who share their ride to Reading can pay £0 for fuel. When you fill your empty seats with 3 paying BlaBlaCar passengers, you can completely cover your fuel costs for that trip and drive for FREE! And passengers looking for a festival ride enjoy low-cost, comfortable travel, even at the last-minute. As an example, a journey from Bristol to Reading will only cost you £6 ;)
By ridesharing to Reading you will not only save yourself money, but you will be helping to reduce the overall environmental impact of the festival. For example, did you know that four people travelling in a car brings down the CO2 emissions per person to less than if you were travelling by train?
Meet fellow festival goers!
Meeting new people is part of the festival experience we all love, and with BlaBlaCar, you will meet awesome peeps even before you have put your tent up! Join our growing community, carshare to Reading, and see for yourself how many awesome and talented people travel with and love BlaBlaCar.
So connect with other BlaBlaCar members and travel to these festivals together! You will have fun, you will save money and you will be a protector of the environment!
Priority parking & VIP passes
Finding a parking space at a festival can be an absolute nightmare… but when you offer your ride to Reading with BlaBlaCar, you automatically have access to the BlaBlaCar Priority Parking. This means you get to park right outside the festival entrance! And it doesn't finish there. You will also be entered into a raffle to win a VIP ticket upgrade for yourself and a plus one. This means you get the best seats to all of the performances, and you get access to all of those lovely VIP perks. Sounds good, right? And all you have to do is offer your ride to Reading, print out your BlaBlaCar Priority Parking Pass, place it on your dashboard so that we can quickly allocate you your parking space, and if you're in luck, you will also receive your VIP pass! We will be sending out your Priority Parking Pass a week before the festival begins, so offer your ride as soon as you can. Read our Terms & Conditions.
The BlaBlaCar team will be coming to the festival too! Come along to say hi and to take part in some fun games and activities! We will be offering free massages to take the strain away from all of your dancing, free nail painting to give you the best festival look going, and we will of course help you connect with other carsharers for your trip back home. Backstage passes and festival merchandise will also be up for grabs, so don't miss out!
Laura from the BlaBlaCar team!
