CLEVELAND, Dec. 10, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BeMyDD (Be My Designated Driver), the nation's largest designated driver service, today launched its "Keeping The Holidays Happy" campaign to provide discounted transportation for first time users of its private, on-demand transportation service before January 1, 2015.
BeMyDD offers another option to ridesharing services such as Uber and Lyft with a range of affordable services where professional, experienced chauffeurs operate the customer's own vehicle, priced at pre-determined rates free of surge pricing or other surprise fees. All drivers are background screened, interviewed and fully insured up to US$2 million per trip by BeMyDD.
With drunk driving statistics significantly higher during the holidays—the U.S. National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) reports 40 percent of traffic-related deaths during Christmas and New Year's involve drunk drivers—BeMyDD provides a safe, reliable and affordable alternative for revelers this holiday season.
"The holidays should be about having fun and staying safe, not worrying about a DUI or getting in an alcohol-related car accident," said Arthur Simanovsky, BeMyDD president and CEO. "BeMyDD is helping keep the holidays happy by providing discounted rides for first time users of our service through New Year's Day."
A first time customer can obtain a discount code good for US$20 off their first BeMyDD reservation. A three-hour minimum driver reservation is required. Rates are between US$14 and US$19.50 per hour and vary by city, but are not affected by driver demand and supply. Reservations can be made through BeMyDD.com, calling +1 (877) U BeMyDD (823 6933), or by downloading and using the mobile app (iOS or Android). To take advantage of the discount consumers can make their reservation at www.BeMyDD.com/Holidays and enter promo code Holidays.
Those out on the town this holiday season can make use of two BeMyDD services.
