Are there any other extra charges like surge and toll?
There are no surge for GrabHitch. Toll charges are also not included in the fare and they will typically be borne by your Hitch Driver. However, do understand that in cases where your Hitch Driver may pass through a toll road just to pick you up or drop you off, he/she is allowed to ask you to share the cost with him. Should you be unwilling to do so, simply reject him/her in a nice manner.
You may also feel free to offer to pay for toll & parking fees by indicating in the ‘Notes’ comment box when you make your booking.

Click on the ‘Book’ icon and our servers will ping your route request to Hitch Drivers who share similar journeys. You’ll be notified via SMS and in-app notification when a Hitch Driver has confirmed your booking. We’ll also drop you a reminder 30 minutes before your scheduled pick-up time.
What if I want to cancel my booking?
GrabHitch is a social carpooling initiative where trust is the backbone of our service. We strongly discourage you from cancelling on your Hitch Driver who has already made plans to give you a lift. However, should you find it absolutely necessary to do so, do give him/her a heads up as early as you can. To cancel your booking in the app, find under the menu: Scheduled > GrabHitch > Booking > Cancel Booking.

Why can’t I get a match?
GrabHitch is meant as an advance booking service as we are powered by non-commercial, everyday drivers who give Hitch Riders a lift at their convenience. Hence, there may not always be any available Hitch Drivers who are heading the same way as you do at your specified time. To secure a higher chance of being matched, book as early as you could, even up to 7 days in advance!

You may like to try texting or calling your Hitch Driver first. If he/she remains uncontactable, we’re afraid you’ll have to cancel the trip and request for another ride.

Where do I go to sign up?
It’s really easy. Open your Grab app, select GrabHitch(Nebeng) Car service icon and click on the blue colour “Sign Up as a driver” bar to upload your details. Application will be approved in 2 working days.
How is being a GrabHitch driver different from being a GrabCar driver?
GrabCar drivers are full/part time drivers providing taxi service based on bookings. Drivers are allocated to passengers, which then sends the passengers to their destination on demand.
GrabHitch drivers are normal commuters like you and me. A GrabHitch driver will be matched to passengers traveling the same route and schedule. Drivers get the freedom to choose bookings that suit their travel!
Do I select my Hitch Rider or will I be matched automatically?
We give you full autonomy to decide who you want to pick up that you find most convenient. 2 ways to find your Hitch Rider: Check ‘Quick Hitch’ for the list of requests that best matches your current location and time, or create a route and see who’s heading the same way as you!
How much can I earn per trip?
GrabHitch is meant to subsidise your cost of driving i.e. mainly petrol costs and car depreciation. The fare is calculated based on distance of the journey and car depreciation rate. If there are any other charges (toll etc.), drivers will have to bear it. Drivers have the freedom to choose passengers based on their route & schedule.
Can I cancel a booking?
GrabHitch is a social carpooling initiative where trust is the backbone of our service. So once you’ve confirmed with your Hitch Rider, please don’t cancel on him/her. However if you absolutely have to cancel, please do so in advance and inform your Hitch Rider so that he/she can plan for alternative modes of transport (and not be left stranded). To cancel your booking in the app, go to Confirmed tab > Booking > Cancel Booking.
How many passengers can I pickup and how many trips can I do a day?
GrabHitch Car drivers can only send a maximum of 4(four) passengers per trip, and no limit on the number of trips per day.
To know how many passengers a booking has, please check the app and call the passenger to confirm the details.
Do I need to pick up my Hitch Rider from an exact location or can I indicate a landmark within the neighbourhood to meet?
Yes you have to pick up and drop off your Hitch Rider from the exact locations indicated in the booking. This facilitates a smooth and pleasant experience for both you and your Hitch Rider!
Am I still considered a Hitch Driver if I don’t drive regularly? Can I use GrabHitch as a passenger too?
Yes you can use the app as both passenger and driver. No worries, as a social initiative, we wouldn’t want to stress you out by imposing any penalty for irregularity. So please go ahead and enjoy driving GrabHitch at your convenience!
What should I do if I get into an accident?
You will be protected with life insurance covered by Grab, and the damages of the car is covered by your own car insurance. If you need help, please contact our 24 hour hotline (+6221 8064 8777) or through email to firstname.lastname@example.org
How do I create a route?
After your application has been approved, slide the menu and toggle the “DRIVE” button. Enter your trip details and you’ll be alerted to a list of Hitch Riders who share similar journeys in the app. You can also sort through the list to see who fits your journey best.
