Coca-Cola Designated Driver Campaign is back for its 9th Year - from 1st Dec - BOGOF

For the 9th year in a row, we’re bringing back our Designated Driver scheme – run in partnership with the Department for Transport’s THINK! Drink Drive campaign – which rewards people who volunteer to do the driving over the festive period, while abstaining from alcohol.

Our Designated Driver scheme is how we say thanks to all of you who help your friends and family get home safely during Christmas and New Year's – with a special ‘buy one, get one free’ offer on soft drinks pubs, bars and restaurants all across the country, including many rural locations.

Slightly different in Ireland where drivers can get Two Free Drinks with a voucher downloaded from the Irish site.

Locations seem considerably reduced from previous years, certainly in my area anyway. Great initiative though.

I can't see any locations in Wales

One in the whole of South Yorkshire.

Just a gimmick lol

Very few around

well it's not really back from last year then is it as last year you got two free drinks in england (on a key fob tesco clubcard style) the buy one get one free

There are no locations near me - and I always drive as I'd rather be in control. Damn annoying that that a watered down coke in these places is almost as expensive as drinking alcohol.

Haylhoo

I can't see any locations in Wales



This... looks pretty poor coverage. I'll be fine if we travel to Weston S Mare for a pint and a fight.

None in wales - bad deal

One in York or one in Newcastle? That's 30 miles away from where I live

Given the tiny number of participating pubs compared to last year I think they would have been better off dropping it than running what is in effect a useless promotion that the majority of people can't access.

3 for the whole of Glasgow!!! That's crap. Publicity considering its been advertised on the radio

Not one in the whole of Northern Ireland!

​Try the Ireland one.

All the comments say it's rubbish but the heat rises.
I also think overpriced soft drinks are a very poor incentive. And even at buy one get one free they are still a massive con.
A better offer if you have a named driver would be to get a free coke with every alcoholic drink bought. Then the beer drinker gains nothing but the driver drinks for free

Thats the way it used to be! The nominated driver gets a free soft drink for another traveller buying an alcoholic drink. Now its not really an incentive but still heat being added for the incentive!
Come on Coca-Cola and step up to the plate!

Nearest 2hour round trip

There's a free coke in all green king run pubs . It says it on their xmas menu's

nothing near me= great publicity for a hugely overpriced soft drink

good idea, unfortunately not available in my local area

A multinational company making a tiny gesture to give away 2-3p worth of syrup when you spend £2 or so buying an overpriced soft drink from the same company. This company has ruined the health of millions of people worldwide, and this is the best it can do by way of redress.

Completely pathetic. One pub in the whole of Cornwall is participating. Coca Cola expect pubs to fund most of this themselves, whole thing is a sham. I know this because I am a bitter former employee...

none near me looks like ill be drink driving then (i honestly dont drink dont take it seriously)

I would sooner drink tap water than this tooth rotting stuff.

Not one on the Isle of Wight!! - Nearest in Portsmouth - even then its only one place in Portsmouth!!
Very poor promotion.

Nothing near me. I'm going to become an alcoholic in protest.

And drinking all this coke .... be ready to stay awake all night . Sleep will be near impossible!

Heat added as it's great idea. Terrible amount of pubs around Nottingham doing this but still.

3 cans for a pound in the pound shops and it factory made not postmix.

Avoid one addictive substance, get hooked on another.

Sorry, but the idea is bad, the execution is bad, and it is certainly not a deal.

I think the issue is so many pubs and restaurants are going 'is pepsi ok?' - Coke's losing its market share.

I hope so, but it's a shame it's to another American multinational. Even Scots Porridge Oats have been taken over by Pepsico. And what was the first thing they did? Started marketing porridge in plastic pots or in sachets with sugar and dried fruit added. It seems that multinationals want to either pollute the planet with plastic or pollute our bodies with sugar.

I think it hilarious that they find Ireland needing more incentive with 2 free drinks

Wouldnt drink that stuff even if they paid me

Just drink tap water. Free and healthier than Coke.

Marketing BS from the acid sugar water supplier.

Surely designated drivers get at least one drink from all the other people they will be driving home?

Someone should have told Roberto Firmino about this deal

I recogn its because they have their fingers in the health pie too tbh

I love sugar so much but coke seems to have changed down the years, it's like they watered down the recipe and now I can barely taste that coke taste. Short of gulping down a coke at the end of a 100 mile bike ride and it feeling like a drink from heaven. I don't know what I'm saying. But I like coke better than Pepsi, Pepsi is creamy without that coke taste.
