Vehicle Damage Protection Scheme

Vehicle body damages such as scratches and dents can cost a hefty sum to repair when you are renting a car, especially when it requires paying it off all at once. Body repairs may even cost up to $3,000!

To help you defray such costs, GrabRentals is introducing the new Vehicle Damage Protection Scheme – a protection plan exclusively for GrabRentals Hirer-Partners. 

Rent with a peace of mind when you pay only $2.14/day (incl. GST) to have your car damages covered under GrabRental’s Vehicle Damage Protection Scheme throughout your rental contract duration. 

On top of that, receive a FREE V-Kool Paint Protection Film coating (inclusive of free installation and 6-month warranty) on your rear bumper to prevent scratches during instances such as loading/unloading from the car boot.

No. Opt-out is not allowed for the entire contract period.

Yes. You may request to change the vehicle. However, you’d be required to pay for the damages (if any) on your current vehicle before swapping to another vehicle to be part of this scheme.

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) may be optional (depending on contract promotion requirement). However, we do recommend our hirer-partners to take up CDW as well to reduce the risk of high damage liability in the event of an accident. The vehicle protection scheme only covers liability on bodily damages that does not involve accident cases.

As long as it’s within the 6-month warranty period. Simply call 65150271 or head down to Astee at 186 Woodlands Industrial Park E5, #01-01 Singapore 757515.

We would recommend calling the Astee hotline first so as to prevent longer waiting times.

No. The scheme only covers damages upon the returning of the vehicle.



We will conduct a check upon the return of your vehicle. Please see your coverage items above to understand your coverage.

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.
