"Get Home Safe" Program

The Okanagan Wine Festivals Society is proud to provide patrons of select Signature Events a taxi ride after the event. The “Get Home Safe” program is designed to provide a safe ride home from the Signature Event to your residence or hotel only. “Get Home Safe” does not provide a ride to restaurants, nightclubs, or other licensed establishments. We ask that any patron who has consumed any alcohol never get behind the wheel of a vehicle.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does it work? 
Patrons of a Signature Event that is offering the "Get Home Safe" program may request a taxi ride from the event directly to their residence or hotel. There will be a designated pickup point with appropriate signage at the event manned by event security personnel for the hours of the event and until the last "Get Home Safe" patron is in a taxi. The guest may request a taxi voucher from event staff. This taxi voucher will be valued up to $50.00; anything over that amount must be paid for by the guest. 
 
How do I know if a Signature Event offers the "Get Home Safe" program?
The event listing on our website will clearly state whether an event is offering the "Get Home Safe" program.
 
Where will “Get Home Safe” take me?
Patrons will be offered a “Get Home Safe” taxi ride from the event directly to their residence or hotel. The program does not provide a ride to restaurants, nightclubs, or other licensed establishments.
 
Can I use the taxi voucher at another time?
The "Get Home Safe" taxi voucher may only be redeemed on the day of the event, from the scheduled beginning of the event until an hour after the event has concluded; the date and times will be clearly stated on the vouchers. 
 
Can I use the taxi voucher from another location? 
The "Get Home Safe" taxi voucher may only be used from the designated pick-up point at the event site.
