Flash. One button, more vehicles than any other app in Singapore.

Getting around Singapore in rush hour or rain can be incredibly stressful. Sometimes you just need a ride, whether it be taxi or car – you just need to get home or not be late for that meeting you’re rushing to.

Our Flash feature allows you to book a ride from our combined pool of Standard Taxis and GrabCars (Economy) with just one button.

No more desperately switching between apps and trying your luck with taxi operator hotlines. Flash bookings reach out to all taxis and cars on the Grab platform – one tap and we’ll assign you the nearest available driver!

It’s simple and it works.


Here’s how to use Flash:

Step 1 – Enter your Pick-up and Drop-off points.

Step 2 – Choose your payment option and tap the Flash button

Step 3 – Book and enjoy your ride!

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.
