Grab Prepares Users For The Year-End Holiday Season!
Grab adds OYO Hotels onto its Hotel's Tile and introduces a new Grab Travel Pass
As we get closer to the year-end holiday season, majority of Malaysians are gearing up for their vacations. In the first quarter of 2018, reports showed that Southeast Asia experienced the largest increase of tourists compared to any other region in the world. And with the number of tourist arrivals to ASEAN countries expected to increase over 155 million in 2022, it’s no wonder more people are travelling across Southeast Asia.
Whether you’ve been saving up for that international vacation destination or looking for a quick getaway to one of Malaysia’s many attractions, Grab, Southeast Asia’s Everyday Everything app, has got you covered to make your travel experiences more rewarding and convenient. Here are some top tips on how you can make Grab your one-stop platform for all your travel needs, from planning your year-end holiday, to getting around in a brand new city and everything in between.
- Get great accommodations at affordable prices
Enjoy additional savings when you make hotel bookings right on the Grab app via the Hotels tile. The latest addition to Grab’s hotel-booking partners, which includes Agoda and Booking.com, is OYO Rooms, the world’s fastest growing hotel chain.

- Start your getaways with extra comfort and convenience
Before leaving the country, pamper yourself at airport lounges or get some last-minute fixes at Grab’s merchant-partners’ stores. With over 170 partners across major airports in Southeast Asia, users will be able to gain discounted lounge access as well as F&B deals.
On top of that, it used to be a common pain point for travellers arriving in a foreign country to look for reliable transport options in an unfamiliar city. We’re all too familiar with how stressful and confusing it can be, walking aimlessly with a luggage in tow, trying to find a driver in a completely new airport. Now with Grab, users can just head straight to our Grab-branded airport pick-up and drop-off points in Southeast Asia, making it easier for you and your driver to locate each other.
- Rent a car Through Grab to explore Southeast Asia
One of the most convenient ways to explore any new destination is to hire a private driver by the hour. With Grab,users can nowmake on-demand GrabCar bookings and pay by the hour in Bangkok, Jakarta, Klang Valley and Kota Kinabalu. This gives travellers the flexibility to hire Grab transport services for extended periods, eliminating the need to make multiple bookings (within a short period of time).
Whether you’re looking to visit popular tourist attractions or go on a food tour in a brand new city in the region, Grab is at your service, with no advance booking needed too!
With Grab’s travel offerings, planning your holidays is now more seamless and rewarding! Grab also plans to add even more travel features and enhancements to provide users with an even more enriching travelling experience. Stay tuned for more updates!
