We know Local Guides love exploring so we teamed up with Cabify, a service you can use to book a car, to help you discover more this month. From October 10 - October 23, Local Guides in eight countries have three different ways to explore their areas with Cabify and Local Guides.
Local Guides in select areas of Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, Panama, Peru, Portugal and Spain received an email with an exclusive benefit — a Cabify credit to be used on their next four rides.
2: Local Guides car
Want to ride in a Local Guides car? Cabify has hooked you up! Local Guides in select areas of Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, Panama, Peru, Portugal and Spain who book a Cabify car in the Lite category have an opportunity to be picked up by a vehicle with the Local Guides logo from which they can snag a special item. Did you get into a Local Guides car? Be sure to share a photo using #LocalGuides!
Local Guides in Spain and Mexico have an opportunity to win one month of free Cabify rides just for sharing reviews of places anywhere in the world on Google Maps and entering our contest. Know someone in Spain? Share this contest link. Know someone in Mexico? Share this contest link. The Local Guides in each country who share the most high-quality reviews on Google Maps by October 23 will win a month of free Cabify rides.
We hope you’re as excited as we are about the next two weeks. We can’t wait to hear about your experiences exploring your cities here on Connect, on social media using #LocalGuides and of course, on Google Maps. Be sure to thank Cabify, too! Thanks, Cabify!
