Sharing our top 3 Pro-Tips on how to be an awesome GrabHitch Buddy!
1. Book in advance!
GrabHitch is not an on-demand service. It is powered by regular commuters like you and I. Book the night before or at least 2 hours in advance to ensure that your route has maximum visibility to all the drivers on the platform. The earlier you book, the more drivers will be able to see your route, and the higher your chance of getting picked up! If your timing is flexible, you could also write a message in the ‘Notes to Driver’ section to let potential drivers know! Eg. “I can leave X mins before/after stated pickup time”.

2. Say HELLO to your driver after your route is accepted!
Say HELLO to your new Hitch buddy via text message to confirm the journey details. They are taking a detour from their route and spending precious time to pick you up so that you save time and money on your commute! Remember to include details like your exact pick up point and timings in your text message to prevent any misunderstanding; ensuring that your GrabHitch journey is as smooth as possible ?

3. Tell your driver if you have additional passengers with you!
Upon booking, remember to indicate if you have additional passengers taking the ride with you! Click on the box besides “Notes to Driver” to change the number of persons who will be along for the ride if there is more than 1 passenger. Your driver is not a taxi service or a commercial driver, and is doing you a favour by picking you up – the last thing he would want is an unpleasant surprise with additional passengers flocking into his car!
