Why should I sign up with GrabHitch? What’s in it for me?
As a GrabHitch driver, you get to do 3 major things: Cover your fuel and car maintenance costs, meet new people from all walks of life, and contribute to a car-lite Singapore! You create routes at your own convenience and you decide which passengers to pick up. You can choose to do it twice a day, on a particular weekday every week, only on weekends – its all up to you really!
How is being a GrabHitch driver different from being a GrabCar driver?
They’re not the same at all! GrabCar drivers have to register a business, purchase commercial insurance, convert their car to a commercial vehicle at the LTA and then sign up in person at the Grab office. To be a GrabHitch driver, you just need to launch the Grab app, take a couple of photos and submit them for verification.
Do I select the passenger or will I be matched automatically?
You select who you want to pick up, so if you do not see any passengers in your area who are going the same way, you can always refrain from doing a GrabHitch at that time and try again with another trip!
How much can I earn per trip?
GrabHitch is meant to subsidise the cost of driving and not serve as a fully fledged income stream, but you can expect to receive between $8 to $12 per trip on average. You can even sort passengers by the fare that you could possibly earn from picking them up.
How about extra charges like ERP?
ERP fees are not calculated into the fares of passengers you pick up.
How many rides can I offer a day as a driver?
Based on current carpooling regulations, drivers can only complete two rides in a calendar day.
How do I create a booking?
After your application has been approved, click DRIVE, and then select the button Create Route. After you have confirmed your date and timing details, you will be alerted to passengers who share similar journeys in the app. You can also sort through a list of passengers who fit your journey based on different parameters (proximity, price) if you select your route from the main Hitch driver screen.
How am I paid by the passenger?
You can choose to pick passengers paying by either GrabPay (credit card) or Cash depending on their booking made. If you pick up a passenger using GrabPay, your earnings will be credited directly into a digital driver wallet created when you were approved as a driver. This wallet credit can be cashed out at any time, all you have to do is provide us with your bank account details the very first time you ask to cashout.
How many passengers can I take at one time and am I paid per passenger?
You can only accept one booking per trip, but each booking may have more than one passenger. Passengers who make the booking can indicate how many people are with them, so you’ll know ahead of time the total number of passengers you will be picking up. You will be paid per booking regardless of the number of passengers who were part of the booking.
Do I need to pick up the passenger from an exact location or can I indicate a landmark within the neighbourhood to meet?
Same as GrabTaxi and GrabCar bookings, passengers will input exact addresses as pickup locations so that you know exactly where to pick them up. This is to ensure the best possible experience for both you and the passenger.
Can I get my passenger to pay if we get into an accident?
Your vehicle insurance and personal insurance will cover the accident. If assistance is required, both you and the passenger can contact us through our 24-hour hotline (02-021-2500) or through email at email@example.com.
Am I still considered a GrabHitch driver if I do not drive regularly? Can I use GrabHitch as a passenger?
You can use GrabHitch both as a passenger and driver on the same app, and we do not penalise drivers for not providing regular rides so don’t worry!
What else should I take note of as a driver?
1. Be kind and spare a thought for your passenger’s time! SMS or call if you’re going to be early or late to their pick-up point.
2. Keep the front seat free and leave your bags and other items in the back seat.
3. Be friendly and break the ice by talking about your job, sports you’re into, movies you’ve watched, anything really!
Does Grab deduct any fees from my fares like commercial driving services?
No! Grab currently deducts ZERO service fee from our GrabHitch drivers as our platform is meant to enable a social ridesharing experience, so as a driver you get 100% of the fare.
What if I want to cancel my booking?
You can cancel the booking in-app, but we encourage you to notify the passenger via SMS or phone call as soon as you realise you need to cancel to avoid inconveniencing him/her.
