Drive Less and Earn More with Grab
Let your spare time pay for your needs and heart’s desires
The past year has not been easy on Malaysians and their wallets. With the onset of taxes, removal of subsidies and instability at the workplace, stretching your dollar is not as easy as before, especially to include the little pleasures in life like a new car or a well deserved holiday.
Fortunately, Grab has the answer.
GrabCar, which is available on the Grab App (formerly known as MyTeksi), offers a flexible and viable option for those who want to earn some serious money with minimal time commitments. This is something other ride-sharing app platforms just cannot provide.
So how does it work, you may ask … pretty easy, actually.
Earnings and Incentives
Table I: Updated Grab Incentive
With the updated Grab incentive system, the focus is not on the hours spent behind the wheel, but on how many jobs are completed. For example, on weekdays (Mon – Thurs), you only need to accept one job while on the way to work and two after. With the minimum fare of RM7 per job, you will already hit the tier 4 target, which will reward you with a bonus incentive that rounds up each job to RM16, making your daily earnings RM48.
Then, on weekends (Fri – Sun), if you could accept five to six jobs a day with the same minimum fare of RM7, each job will also be rounded up to RM16, turning your daily earnings to between RM90 and RM96!
Table II: Recommended drive schedule to achieve the minimum weekly earnings with an average of 2 hours of driving a day
Yes, we are aware you have limited spare time but with just 14 hours a week (that’s as low as 2 hours a day!) you can take home a minimum of RM1,792 guaranteed gross income per month!*
Just think of all the things you can do with an extra RM1,792? Let’s break it down further. With this amount, you can easily pay for:
- Monthly installments for a brand new Mazda 3 2.0 SkyActiv Sedan GL or the top-line Honda HR-V
- Monthly rental at condos such as Neo Damansara or Fahrenheit 88, Bukit Bintang (and places like these usually have a high demand for transport), or
- A brand new iPhone 6s or Samsung S7 Edge within two months, or
- A trip to Bali or Bangkok every month!
The possibilities are endless. And they’re all available to you, just by sitting in your car for a few hours a day, listening to your favourite music and meeting new people.
GrabHacks to earn more
In fact (just between the two of us), here are a few more tips to consider if you want to earn even more!
1) Target high demand areas during Bonus Hours
Bonus Hours, which usually coincides with office rush hours, are when Grab guarantees the minimum fare earned, so you can definitely earn more with lesser drive time.

2) Minimize your cost
Another tip to maximize your earnings is by reducing your cost. Since it is now cheaper to fill your tank with petrol than to enjoy a glass of Milo ais at your nearest mamak, now is the best time to take advantage of it!
3) Refer your friends and family
Share the wealth make more for yourself. Get your friends and family to sign up as well and you could earn up to RM175 per referral. Moreover, if your referrals sign up between 1 – 31 March 2016, you’ll stand a chance to drive away in a Nissan Almera worth RM69,800 (including insurance and tax)!**
