Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can my other friends who did not receive this email join?
A: If their car model fits the criteria, they can open the driver app, go to the support tab, click on Help Centre, followed by Account and Setup, and select “I want to Opt-into GrabCar Plus.”

Q: Is GrabCar Plus is replacing the Platinum programme or a new fleet?
A: No, the Platinum programme will not be affected by GrabCar Plus and it is not a new fleet of cars.

All drivers are eligible to join GrabCar Plus if they fulfill the service and vehicle criteria listed above.

Q: How do I maintain my GrabCar Plus partner status?

In addition, GrabCar Plus runs regular spot checks. If you do not have the required in-car accessories in place or fail to deliver G.R.E.A.T. service during the spot checks, you will also be removed from GrabCar Plus.

If your status is removed, don’t worry! You can still receive jobs from other services such as JustGrab, GrabShare, GrabFamily and GrabCar Premium (if applicable).
