Grab Weekly Cover 2

Phase 2 (Heightened Alert) has seen consumer demand moving away from transport services, while food and parcel deliveries continue to grow. 

With our commitment to support all driver-partners, we will be re-introducing Grab Weekly Cover (Version 2), which includes delivery jobs from GrabFood, GrabMart & GrabExpress as well. 

That way, even with GrabFood and GrabMart jobs where there are no commissions applicable for rebates, you’ll still be able to earn up to an additional of $0.80 per job. This helps ensure our support covers all job opportunities, to maximise your earnings across Grab services:

 GEMS Payout Rate V2

* Cycle 4 (11 – 15 Jun)

* Post P2HA (16- 20 Jun)

 GEMS Payout Rate V3

* Final Extension (21 – 27 Jun)



From Friday to Thursday (between 21 May- 10 Jun), Mr Tan does 3 Transport bookings and 3 Delivery bookings per day (of which 2 Delivery bookings are during 10am – 12pm). Hence, he will get:

Standard Gems (3 Transport + 3 Deliveries) * 7 = 42 Gems
Bonus Gems 2 Deliveries (during 10am to 12pm) * 7 = 14 Gems
Total Gems Standard + Bonus = 56 Gems
Total Payout 56 Gems * $0.80 = $44.80

Mr. Tan received a total payout of $44.80, which is on top of his other earnings.


  • The week starts every Friday, 0000hrs and ends on Thursday, 2359hrs.
  • Transport jobs excludes Standard Taxi, Premium Taxi, Hitch and My Destination jobs.
  • Daily Min AR of 90% & Max CR of 10% applies to trips done. Min DR of 4.60 applies at all times.
  • Trips count will be based on broadcast time during the incentive time period.

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.
