Five Ways Not To Get Stranded After Your Christmas Party

December 5, 2019 Lifestyle News No Comments Email Email

Australian workers are being warned to book their transport ahead of their Christmas party now or risk being left stranded getting both to and from their festive celebrations.

Many drivers will be working across multiple platforms like Uber, Ola, Go Catch and Taxify, which could lead to a driver shortage on some platforms at various times of the day as well prices will fluctuate depending on demand. Those who don’t book ahead also risk overpaying if booking last-minute during busy times.

Here are seven transport alternatives to get you to and from your Christmas parties:


Get Picked Up is the largest Australian-owned rideshare company. It is a pre-booked service only so absolute certainty is built into its system. Your driver will turn up at the designated time and you know the cost at the time of booking. If you have used Get Picked Up (GPU) before you may also request your preferred driver. GPU also offers eco-options such as a Teslas.

Car Sharing

If you want to match your Christmas outfit with an equally statement set of wheels, you can hire anything from a convertible and BMW to electric car or 7-seater through Car Next Door. With the option to rent from your neighbours by the hour or day, it’s both a convenient and competitive way to get behind the wheel of one of these cars. You’ll just have to contend with parking and watch the alcohol intake.

Your own car

If you are happy not to drink alcohol then driving your own car might be an option but parking could be a nightmare and you might end up walking more than you thought you would.

Public transport

It’s not particularly friendly to slinky stiletto heels or a perfectly pressed suit and tie, but public transport options are plentiful, with some cities adding additional bus and train services over the festive season such as New Year’s Eve.


 Taxis will be in high demand. Pre-book and allow some extra time in case your taxi is late. The highest peak time is usually around 7pm.


 An expensive option but the price of a larger limo find can be split between up to ten people. Limos get you into the festive spirit. The larger (and more expensive ones) come with party trappings such as a wet bar, LED lighting, flat screen TVs, iPod and iPhone Docks, CD & DVD players as well as music videos and songs to choose from. Often difficult to book on the day.Pre-book at limo find.


Fun. Elegant. Expensive. Pre-bookings are a must and limited where you can be picked up and dropped off.
