In the driver’s words: I love everything about it. There aren’t many (of this car model) left on the road, which makes it special. I use this car to travel to work everyday, and because it’s mostly just my wife and I in the car then, I thought of signing up to be a GrabHitch driver to meet more people and make more friends.

In the driver’s words: Do you know there are only about 10 of such cars in Singapore? So, it really stands out on the roads, and it’s very easy to spot. Most of the Hitch Riders I’ve picked up get very excited when they see my car, and they’ll ask to take pictures with it. They will usually try to open the door by pulling towards them and get a shock when they realize the doors actually open upwards! As a business man, it’s important for me to network and GrabHitch allows me to do that. In fact, I’ve already made a few friends from different industries! I’m quite chatty so having someone to talk to when I drive keeps me entertained.

In the driver’s words: It’s a sleek and classic 2-seater which means I can only pick up one rider at a time. I remember having to turn down a Hitch Rider once because she had a friend with her, but she didn’t indicate in the booking. So now I always check with my riders beforehand to confirm if they only have 1 pax. My daughter signed me up for GrabHitch because she said the people using the app are very friendly. So far, I find that to be true! It’s nice to have someone to talk to in the morning, especially if I’m stuck in a traffic jam.
These three cars are just part of the GrabHitch’s roster, you just might be surprised at the other luxury models that you may come across the next time you hitch!
Feeling excited yet? We bet you are – so start your Hitching now for just an average of $10!
