Grab, Southeast Asia’s leading ride-sharing service has expanded its GrabCar service in more places in Malaysia. In its latest expansion, you can now request a GrabCar in Ipoh, Kuantan, Kuching and Seremban. The new locations are available starting today and this also includes districts of Nilai and Port Dickson.
Similar to the Klang Valley, you can expect the same safe, convenient and comfortable GrabCar rides in these new locations. The move into new areas is in line with Grab’s mission to make transportation more accessible to everyone.
Grab’s commitment to safety
To be the preferred alternative mode of transport, Grab ensures safety as a key priority. Drivers undergo stringent background checks and they are given training with a strict code of conduct which they would need to comply with. For greater peace of mind, passengers can share their rides with their loved ones in real-time and there’s also a PDRM button within the app which connects passengers to the nearest police in case of emergencies.
For further protection, all GrabCar rides are covered by a Group Accident Insurance which allows each person to claim up to USD10,000.
You can choose to pay your ride in either cash or cashless payments. If you don’t want to fumble over small change, you can use GrabPay for greater convenience. This allows each ride to be charged directly to your preferred credit/debit card, so you can hop off immediately upon reaching your destination.
With GrabCar, all fares are fixed and it will be shown upfront before you request a ride. This helps to avoid nasty fare surprises even when travelling through traffic jams. For better communication, the app also comes with GrabChat so you can chat with your driver for free. This is an important feature especially if you need to give specific instructions for your pickup.
Each GrabCar ride can be a rewarding one as passengers can accumulate points for further redemption. This can be used for special promotions and exclusive discounts for your future rides.
