Addison Lee to offer £200,000 of rides to support London vaccination drive
Addison Lee has pledged to support the UK’s vaccination effort by offering discounted rides to and from major vaccination hubs in and around London.
The minicab giant expects to provide discounts worth over £200,000 in value between now and Easter – helping to support both Londoners travelling to receive their vaccinations, as well as vaccine volunteers supporting the rollout.
Anyone travelling to or from the vaccination hubs at Excel Centre, Wembley Olympic Office Centre or Epsom Racecourse can use the code DRIVE25 to claim 25% off their ride.
And all journeys In Addison Lee’s standard fleet are protected by the company’s Safer Journey Initiative, which includes safety screens in every car, trained drivers who clean touchpoints after every journey and the use of the firm’s seven-seater vehicles to allow social distancing.
Addison Lee is also offering its 4,000-strong fleet to provide more targeted, tailored support for the vaccination drive; it’s currently speaking to government and local health trusts.
CEO Liam Griffin said: “We’re using the discount so as many people as possible can travel to and from the vaccination centres in a safe and secure way. We all want to get through this lockdown and open London up again in the safest possible way, and we hope that our support for the vaccination programme will inch us a little closer to that goal.”
