It’s Here: Earn more with GrabShare and Higher GrabCar Fares!

GrabCar Fares, now better than ever!


Starting from 6 December, 12:00 noon, GrabCar fares will be increased!

Based on feedback from our partners, GrabCar’s upfront fixed fares will now also be determined by estimated travel time (on top of trip distance and passenger demand). This means you get paid more during peak hour traffic conditions, as the longer travel time will have been considered in calculating the fare. As usual, you’ll see the fixed fare before you accept the job.

Here are the new GrabCar fares:


*No change to ERP, waiting time & additional stop surcharges.
*High demand surcharges may apply

For example, here’s how the new fares for GrabCar Economy 4-seater will impact the Usual Fare for trips taken at noon:



GrabShare is Finally Here!
Earn 1.5x More with Special Incentives


GrabShare is now available to all Grab users, so expect more bookings in December!

What is GrabShare?

GrabShare is a carpooling service that allows you to earn more by picking up multiple passengers going the same way while passengers share the ride & the fare. Here are some important points to take note of:
  • Hassle-free experience with maximum of 2 bookings at a time. This means you won’t receive any more GrabShare bookings until you’ve dropped off BOTH passengers.
  • Flat commission rate so you keep all the upside!: Grab commissions remain at 20% even for matched rides.
  • Counts towards your trip incentivesAll GrabShare rides are also eligible for your trip incentives. So keep taking GrabShare rides and earn more.
  • Earn more with 1.5X GrabShare fare top up: This week, on top of trip incentives, Grab will top up all GrabShare fares by another 50%. No AR/CR/DR criteria for this incentive.
  • Shorter waiting time for passenger no show goodwill credit: As GrabShare has a shorter maximum waiting time than GrabCar, $2 credit is paid for “No-shows” reported via the driver app 8 minutes after the trip is assigned (instead of 10 minutes for GrabCar). For passenger cancellations, the same policy as GrabCar applies for the passenger cancellation goodwill credit (5 minutes after trip assigned) .

What do you need to do to start driving with GrabShare?
Nothing! You have been automatically activated onto GrabShare, so you can start earning more with GrabShare immediately. Show passengers you’re a 5-star driver by learning all about GrabShare here.

GrabFood delivery-partner, Thailand

COVID-19 has dealt an unprecedented blow to the tourism industry, affecting the livelihoods of millions of workers. One of them was Komsan, an assistant chef in a luxury hotel based in the Srinakarin area.

As the number of tourists at the hotel plunged, he decided to sign up as a GrabFood delivery-partner to earn an alternative income. Soon after, the hotel ceased operations.

Komsan has viewed this change through an optimistic lens, calling it the perfect opportunity for him to embark on a fresh journey after his previous job. Aside from GrabFood deliveries, he now also picks up GrabExpress jobs. It can get tiring, having to shuttle between different locations, but Komsan finds it exciting. And mostly, he’s glad to get his income back on track.
