Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Why did Grab change the position of its services?

We’ve received your feedback that our service classification was confusing, with just 3 categories (Economy, Premium, Larger Vehicles) for 20 services. So we’ve introduced a wider pool of categories, in order to provide you with a more intuitive experience when using our app.

  1. I can’t find what I need! Did Grab remove any of its transport services from its app?

No don’t worry, we’ve not removed or hidden any of our services. What you’re looking for might have been shifted into a different category, or to the second page of our menu. Additionally, we automatically select your last used ride service to make it seamless for you to book.

  1. Why have GrabCar, Electric Taxi, and Limo Taxi been placed under ‘Others’?

We want to offer you the best value based on your ride needs. Hence, we’ve prioritised service options based on the frequency of booking, service differentiation, and vehicle availability.

Komsan Chiyadis

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.
