Jakarta, 6 November 2018 — Grab, the leading Online-to-Offline (O2O) mobile platform in Southeast Asia, today announced its refreshed GrabRewards programme and new partnerships with Booking.com and Vietnam Airlines. The refreshed programme now brings more benefits to Grab’s most loyal users, such as members-only events, exclusive vouchers, travel deals and more. The is part of Grab’s Better Everyday commitment to continuously improve the customer experience.

Starting today, all GrabRewards Platinum and Gold users across the region will have access to preferred benefits including additional discounts on booking.com, available through the Grab app.

Grab has also added Vietnam Airlines to its list of homegrown airline partners on GrabRewards, including Singapore Airlines, Garuda Indonesia, Cebu Pacific via GetGo, and Thai Airways. From mid-November onwards, users in Vietnam can convert their GrabRewards points into frequent flyer miles to redeem flights and other benefits with Vietnam Airlines. With the new travel partnerships, GrabRewards now has the most comprehensive miles and travel loyalty programme for any O2O platform in the region.

Cheryl Goh, Group Vice President of Marketing, Grab said, “We are creating a unique loyalty programme where our users get reward points even for the smallest daily transaction, like buying a bun or a cup of coffee for breakfast, or just by going about their daily lives. GrabRewards points are easily redeemable for discounts, airline miles, tickets to events and movie screenings, and more. We will continue to partner more of our users’ favourite brands and introduce more exclusive perks and experiences on GrabRewards.”

Exclusive rewards for Platinum and Gold users

Grab started a phased refresh of GrabRewards in July this year to expand the programme across the breadth of Grab services available today, and open more benefits for higher tier members.

Available from today, Grab’s refreshed GrabRewards programme now brings more benefits and rewards to Platinum and Gold users, including:

  • Earn GrabRewards points faster and redeem ride and food deals for less: For every Rupiah spent, Platinum and Gold users earn 2x and 1.5x more points respectively than regular users. In addition, users of higher tiers enjoy preferential rates for Grab’s transport and food deals. For example, Silver, Gold and Platinum users will be able to redeem IDR10.000 GrabFood vouchers with 390 points, while other users will need 410 points.
  • Exclusive members-only events and activities: Grab’s Platinum and Gold users will receive exclusive invitations to events and activities, such as flash sales, private fitness classes, movie screenings and more. More details on these exclusive deals can be found in your Grab application.
  • Preferred benefits on Booking.com: Platinum and Gold users can access preferred benefits including additional discounts on booking.com. They will receive a notification from the Grab app with instructions on how to access the benefits.
  • Preferred benefits on Booking.com: Platinum and Gold users can access preferred benefits including additional discounts on booking.com. They will receive a notification from the Grab app with instructions on how to access the benefits.
  • A dedicated hotline for Platinum users: Platinum users will have a dedicated Platinum hotline for all Grab services, which provides a faster response time from Grab’s support team. Their ride bookings are also prioritised, which means they’ll get a ride faster than non-Platinum users.

Earlier this week, Grab announced a strategic partnership with Booking Holdings, which will enable Booking Holdings’ brands, the ability to offer on-demand transport services through their apps, powered by Grab. Grab users will also be able to book accommodations across the globe powered by Booking.com and agoda within the Grab app.
