Be smart: when and where to drive during Christmas?

December 07, 2018

Ever wondered if people enjoy getting their Christmas shopping done nice and early or are more of late bloomers in that sense? We digged deep into Taxify’s analytics and made a cheat sheet for you to know when and where should you be driving these holidays to earn the most.

As it turns out, many of us prefer to go for holiday shopping two to three days before Christmas Eve, with December 21 and 22 being the most popular days to hail a ride to a mall. Still, the gift rally actually starts almost a week earlier, so you can be ready for driving Santa’s helpers from and to malls already on the 18th.

Of course, there are those brave ones who don’t step their foot into shopping realms before December 23. But it seems that on the morning of 24th everyone is busy (un)wrapping and spending time with their loved ones. We suggest you do it too.

The most popular shopping destinations in Cape Town during Christmas period last year were:

  • V&A Waterfront
  • Canal Walk Shopping Centre
  • Bayside Mall
  • Cavendish Square
  • N1 City Mall
  • Access Park Outlet Shopping
  • Kenilworth Centre
  • Ashwood Centre
  • Blue Route Mall
  • Gardens Shopping Centre
  • Sandown Retail Crossing
