22nd April, 2022
Observed every April 25 since 1916, Anzac Day is one of the most important days on our nation’s calendar. It’s a day when we pause to reflect, and to pay our respects to those who have served to defend our liberties and freedoms – ideas that take on a special significance this year, in the light of world affairs.
In welcome news after two years of Covid cancellations, this year’s Anzac Day commemorations will see communities once again coming together at dawn services across the country.
With that in mind, there’s sure to be big crowds this year, so if you’re going to a dawn service, using 13cabs to get there is a wise choice. Not only will you avoid the traffic and parking hassles around the shrines and cenotaphs; our Drivers are trained to help those with mobility issues have a comfortable ride.
And to make sure you arrive on time, pre-book your dawn service taxi on the 13cabs app the night before. You’ll not only save time, the 13cabs price guarantee means you know up front exactly how much it will cost you to get there.
Following the solemnity of the dawn service, veterans get together with mates, their families and the community to relax, reminisce, watch some footy and have a game of two-up – a traditional Digger’s game which is normally banned every other day of the year.
With the beers and banter flowing as freely as they do whenever old mates catch up, it’s a smart idea to leave the car at home and let 13cabs do the driving. Better still, you can make sure nobody misses out or gets left behind by getting a 13cabs MAXI TAXI.
Obviously, there’s always a high demand for cabs on Anzac Day, but being an Australian company, we don’t believe that’s a reason to jack up prices like the ride sharers do.
Whether it’s dawn, dusk or any time in between, you’ll never pay a surge price with 13cabs.
Traditional Anzac Day Two-up
NSW will see a return to full commemorative services for the first time in three years, with some special changes being introduced. Typically, two-up is only legal to play on Anzac Day, but this year, it’s being allowed over the three-day long weekend, as an incentive for people to head to their local pub or club and get involved with this classic Anzac tradition.
Anzac Day Footy
As any player will tell you, Anzac Day games are second only to the Grand Final and this year, we’re lucky enough to have two blockbusters on the calendar. Hawthorn will take on the Swans in Tassie at 12.30pm, followed by the Magpies facing off against the Bombers at 3.20pm at the MCG. The crowds will be massive, so save yourself the parking and traffic hassles and let a 13cabs Professional Driver get you there in comfort.
