Do you think driving in Singapore is expensive? Vernon and Jean sure do – thanks to the power of sharing, Vernon’s been able to learn about a simple and effective way to help defray the cost of day-to-day driving: GrabHitch. It’s Grab’s way of giving the regular driver a way to recover his costs: GrabHitch drivers can leverage on Grab’s popular app and booking technology to offer rides to people living and working around them; in turn, riders help to contribute to the driver’s costs – it’s the perfect win-win.
Everyone knows that driving can be expensive – the price of the car is just one of many things to consider when purchasing a car. Did you know that on average, people drive 17500km a year, translated into petrol costs, that’s roughly $3500 a year on petrol alone!

How does GrabHitch work for drivers?
Step 1: Once approved, open your Grab App and click on the upper left icon to view Tab. Tap the bottom banner to switch to “Hitch Driver” mode.
Step 2: Create a route based on where you are, and where you want to go at a specified time/date. Remember to indicate available seats you have, and whether you prefer a same gender rider.
The app will populate riders most suitable to your route. Alternatively, use the QuickHitch function to find nearby Hitchers without creating a route.
Step 3: Pick a suitable rider, accept the booking and remember to confirm with the rider via text!
Step 4: Accept payment once ride is over, either via cash or credit/ Grabpay.
Cashout payment will be through app to your specified account.
