There’s always a solution to everything
Spending hours behind the wheel as a driver-partner is no easy task. You may encounter unfavourable circumstances while on the job. Don’t worry! Here are some of the common scenarios that you may encounter and tips on what you can do to resolve the issue.
Scenario A – Passenger overpaid
Double payment is a common scenario, especially for frequent Grab passengers. Sometimes they forget that they have selected GrabPay as the mode of payment.
If this happens, please return the cash immediately and inform the passenger that they have paid through GrabPay. In case the passenger have exited the car before you realised they overpaid, you may visit here to report the incident.
Scenario B – Delayed Transit Time
Multi-stop Rides is a great feature that allows passengers to add an extra stop in a single trip. However, some passengers might take advantage of this feature by stopping at a location for a prolonged period of time. We advise you to practise informing passengers politely at the beginning of a multi-stop ride that you are only allowed to wait for a maximum of 3 minutes at the extra stop.
If your passenger leaves you waiting for more than 3 minutes, kindly call us and we would cancel the trip on your behalf. Rest assured that your cancellation rate will not be affected.
Scenario C – Passenger didn’t pay
Sometimes we might come across passengers who are in a rush and they may unintentionally exit the car without paying. Other times, they may have forgotten that their mode of payment is cash.
If you are caught in this kind of situation, you may report cases of passengers not paying for their ride here. It is best not to go chasing your passengers as leaving your vehicle unattended may cause a bigger problem.
The scenarios above are just some of the common issues that Grab driver-partners face every now and then. You can always refer to this article if you have to deal with these types of unfortunate situations. Nevertheless, we got your back! You may always visit the Help Centre here. Our customer service is just one call away if you need further assistance.
